a way of life with Yoga

The pace of life particularly in cities is speeding up and modern technology has helped to change it into something our bodies were not designed for. 
That is why many of us live in constant state of mental tension and distress ; and that is why doctors prescribe millions of antidepressants, sleeping tablets a year.
Yoga is a philosophy for life and, as such, it can enhance religious beliefs or perhaps persuade you to allow your own particular god to enter your awakened soul. Philosophy is not an intellectual science but the very act of living life to the full.

key aspects of Yoga :
  • Discipline- We have natural inner strength. Try to remember this though the good and bad times, harnessing this inner energy.
  • Intelligence- Thought alone can't necessarily solve problems, but observation and acting upon natural instincts or intuition without undue delay can.
  • Love- Personal experience of suffering can provide you with inner strength and greater love and compassion for others.
  • Positiveness- Live in the present, thinking of problems as possible opportunities and acting upon them.

Precautions :
If you have deformed or damaged limbs, never strain to attain a posture. Your body will move when it is ready. In case, high blood pressure/heart conditions/weak eye capillaries/detached retina, do not do the inverted( upside down) exercises.
