What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient discipline founded in India, and considered a practical aid rather than a religion. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word Yuj, meaning union, and aims to explore body, mind and spirit by systematically stretching and strengthening muscles of the body, thus increasing blood circulation to internal organs and glands. As well as making the physical body flexible and strong, continued practice of yoga will promote emotional stability and clarity, vitality, deep relaxation, and peace of mind.
The ultimate aim of yoga practice is self development and self realization. Once learned, yoga can be used as a tool to enable the yogi to to align and balance their body. As we are all well aware, old age can bring about various illnesses and diseases. Regular practice of yoga is an excellent way of preventing these, as circulation and flexibility promote general health and wellbeing. We have a firm belief that prevention is better than cure, and that integrating yoga in to our lifestyles is important for those of us approaching our later years. At Mathatitu Yoga Varkala, Kerala, India, we aim to help and assist students of all ages and stages of development.
