Non-action in yoga: the end of effort

The word yoga comes from the sankrit root yug (or yuz/yuj), meaning to yoke or join together. It represents both the unifying process and the state of union. If we accept these terms, then yoga is only necessary at all because our current state is separation. If we did not have a sense of separation, or if we did not engage in the process of separation, we would have no need to actively engage in yoga. But we do have a yearning for yoga. The presence of this yearning indicates that we recognise separateness and that we recognise how it limits...

A Key to Bringing Yoga into Everyday Life

Abhyasa + Vairagya [Practice and Non-Attachment]… Yoga is an ancient, scientific and complete method to transcend your state of being. This transcendence is from a state that resides in the mind, influenced and controlled by the ever-changing happenings around us each day, to a place beyond the mind, a place of unchanging, eternal wisdom, intuition and contentment. I learnt this true meaning of Yoga about two years ago, on my first TTC with Yoga Gita in Mysore, India. As I sat for each philosophy class with our main teacher, Vijay Gopala, and...

Being in nature

Atha yoga anushasanam.  Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah. Tada drastuh svarupe avasthanam. Here begins the explanation of yoga. Yoga is the cessation of the conditions and limitations of the mind. Then, the seer abides in its own true nature. The word 'svarupe' from this quintessential sutra from Patanjali is often translated to: 'one's true nature.' One's true nature is a fundamental concept to be understood for every yogi, for one can hardly be true to their own nature if they do not know what that is. Being such a vital part of the yoga journey,...

The First Step

The theory of evolution given by Charles Darwin is a widely accepted scientific theory which says that over multiple generations, living species experience change in their heritable characteristics making them fitter to survive in the changing environment. This process is called evolution and it implies that the species with better adaptability to the environment and with better ability to reproduce and to survive actually survive.

The Evolution of the Ego

Ego – a word that has come to carry a heavy burden… used as a concept to take the weight of the I-focused lives we lead in today’s target-driven world. It is held responsible for our attachments to material things, our opinions, our likes, dislikes and our ever-growing inability to be present and happy simply with ‘what is’. As we strive forward for that all-important ‘I’, we lose awareness of the whole – the totality that gives us the true wisdom we need to live a content life. But how has it come to be, that this...

Engage your core

The practice of Yoga is a very simple affair. From one angle, the essence of yoga is all about freedom, which is achieved through the expression of unity. As long as you are practicing these two things, you are practicing yoga. For some of us, this radical simplicity of Yoga can be easily forgotten. We get caught up in the details: the position of our legs, the timing of the breath, which day of the week or month to fast on. We become very good at following prescriptions about how things should be done and then measure our success by the...

YOGA AND SCIENCE

Yoga and Science both fields have existed for hundreds of years but they have not been often mentioned together or regarded as related to each other. While there was not the denying of the health benefits of Yoga but a greater acceptance of Yoga as an advanced Science is still to happen.

Let’s explore. We are all aware of Albert Einstein’s Theory of...
