What is Yoga?
Yoga is an art. It is a means of mental, physical, and spiritual practice that entices the human body by bringing about calmness and sublime control over it. Yoga is known to have originated in India and remains the most sought after discipline in terms of discipline both nationally as well as internationally up-till-date. Yoga is speculated to have originated way back in the pre-Vedic era, most likely developed around the 5th and 6th centuries BCE, in ancient India’s ascetic and śramaṇa movements. The chronology of the earliest texts describing the various yoga practices is quite unclear for it is varyingly accredited with either the Hindu Upanishads or the Buddhist Pāli Canon, probably of the 3rd Century BCE or after that. The Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras date back to the first half of the 1st millennium CE but gained prominence much later in the 20th Century.
Yoga has been actually derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means the union of the individual soul/consciousness with the universal spirit/consciousness. Yoga is basically a 5000 year old Indian body filled with knowledge. While many claim yoga to be a mere physical exercise involving twists and turns and stretches among other drills, what most people fail to deduce from it is the profound science involved behind it all that helps unfold the infinite potential of the human mind and soul.
Although there are no defined steps or as such stages in which one can perform/practice the art of yoga, but for the sake of simplicity and understanding, we have managed to differentiate between different areas that are covered under Yoga.
Asanas are referred to as the various positions or postures, the practitioner (yogi, in case of a male and yogini, in case of a female) places himself whilst sitting or simply laying down. In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, he defined “asana” as “to be seated in a position that is firm, but relaxed.” Patanjali also mentioned in the Yoga Sutras, that asana was the third of the eight limbs of the classical (or Raja Yoga). Asanas, or the physical movements when practiced along with Pranayama, or the breathing techniques, constitute the Hatha Yoga.
Pranayama essentially signifies “control of breath.” “Prana” is considered to be the breath or the vital energy that constitutes our body. On astute levels, “prana” represents the pranic energy responsible for life while “ayama” represents control; therefore, representing “control of breath” as a whole. It is said that one can easily achieve a healthy mind and body via continuous practice of control over the rhythms of pranic energy. Patanjali, in the Yoga Sutras, was quoted as saying that pranayama helped the human body achieve higher states of awareness and also that holding of breath was an important practice of reaching “Samadhi.”
Mudras are the symbolic or the ritual gestures mentioned in Hinduism and Buddhism. While most people believe that mudras are performed with hands or fingers, there are some mudras that involve the whole human body. A mudra is seen as a spiritual gesture and an enthusiastic seal of authentic energy used in iconography and other spiritual practices of the Indian religions. There are a total of hundred and eight mudras in the regular Tantric rituals. In yoga, mudras are considered to be a vital part for they are put to use along with pranayama for they affect the flow prana in the body.
Meditation is a practice in which an individual focuses his/her mind into inducing a mode of consciousness such that he/she is able to think deeply and keep his/her mind still for a period of time either in complete silence or with the aid of some chanting, meant for either religious or spiritual purposes or simply as a method for relaxation. Meditation is often used by individuals to help clear the mind and also ease many health concerns including high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, among others.
Types of Yoga
Power Yoga is a term used in the west to describe a vigorous, fitness based approach to the “vinyasa style” yoga. Although some like to call it the “gym” yoga, this style of yoga was originally modeled (closely) as per the Ashtanga Yoga. The term Power Yoga was popularised in mid 90s in an attempt to make Ashtanga Yoga a bit more accessible to the students in the west who possessed an aptitude for it. However, unlike Ashtanga yoga, power yoga doesn’t follow an array of set poses such that the classes can vary. Power Yoga emphasises on strength and flexibility and so was brought into the gyms of America to make it a way of workout. At Yogis Temple we offer Power Yoga Classes in Delhi.
“Hatha” means willful or forceful. Hatha yoga comprises of physical exercises (asanas or postures) in order to align the skin, muscles and bones in the body in a better way possible. The postures are so designed to open the almost every channel of the body especially the main channel i.e. the spine such that the energy is able to flow quite freely. Hatha can also be translated as “sun” for “ha” and “moon” for “tha.” Therefore, referring to a cordial balance between all the masculine aspects i.e. active, hot and sun along with the feminine ones i.e. receptive, cool, and moon which is present between all of us. Hatha yoga, therefore is a powerful way of transformation. Come and learn this practice in our Hath Yoga Classes in Delhi.
Iyengar Yoga was developed by and named after B.K.S. Iyengar and is based on Hatha Yoga as it emphasises on precision, detail and alignment of a posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). It is believed that asanas helped in developing strength, mobility and stability. B.K.S. Iyengar systematised 14 different types of Pranayama (along with many variations) and more than 200 classical yoga poses ranging from the basic level to the advanced one. This helps in ensuring that students progress slowly and gradually by moving from simple poses to the more complex ones such that they develop their mind, body and spirit in a step-by-step way. We have best of the yoga teachers in Delhi that can help your to learn this practice of Yoga.
Ashtanga Yoga was invented by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) and transmitted as a system of yoga to the modern world. Ashtanga Yoga engrosses synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures; this process not only helps in inducing intense internal heat but also a profuse and purifying sweat that helps in detoxifying muscles and organs of the human body. This, therefore, results in improving circulation and inducing a sense of light and strong body along with a calm mind. Ashtanga Yoga is, in fact, named after the eight limbs of yoga that are mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Sivananda Yoga is non proprietary form of the Hatha Yoga whose training focuses on preserving the health and wellness of the practitioner (based on the teachings of Swami Vivekananda). Sivananda Yoga teachers are, in fact, graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course, and their students can widely range in terms of age as well as degrees of ability. However, unlike Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga’s more athletic kind of program that involves Bandhas, Sivananda training revolves around frequent relaxation, and emphasizes on full yogic breathing.
