Yoga is the science of holistic living. The word yoga originates from the Sanskrit word uj which means “to unite”, and so yoga can be said to connote a unitive discipline. In this sense it is an exercise in moral and mental cultivation that generates good health (arogya), contributes to longevity (chirayu), and the total intrinsic discipline culminates into positive and perennial happiness and peace. Therefore, yoga is the said to be indispensable of the ultimate accomplishment in life. It is a science that affects not only the conscious self but the subconscious as well.Yoga is known as the disconnection (viyoga) of the connection (samyoga) with suffering.  

 The different forms of yoga include, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Raj Yoga.Hatha yoga is one of the most popular forms of yoga. It is the use of yoga postures or asana. Many people practice hatha yoga solely for its physical benefit. However, the aim of hatha yoga is meant to be to condition the body, so that the mind can be prepared for its spiritual path. It is thought that whenthe body is in good physical condition, then the mind is freer to concentrate on spiritual matters. It is the stepping stone to the divine wisdom of oneness.

Raja means royal or kingly. Raja yoga meditation is generally based on directing one’s life force to bring the mind and emotions so into balance that the attention may be easily focused on the object of meditation.       

We at RE-LIVE ORTHOPAEDIC, PHYSIOTHERAPY AND WELLNESS CLINIC practice a combination of hatha yoga and raja yoga giving importance to selected postures which are relevant to modern times. There is a conscious practice of avoiding advanced postures because it is not appropriate to make house holders and common people perform them. This is because the practice of advanced asanas requires the limbs and joints to move into unusual positions to which they are not habituated. Gently coaxing the body to perform advanced asanas over a period of time is far better than trying to achieve quick results through force.The purpose of yoga is to ensure that the energy pattern during the session is maintained so that at the end of the session there is deep relaxation. This is achieved through proper sequence and performing complementary poses for certain specific asanas which are essential to bring the body back to balanced stage.

The sequence we follow is as under:

  • AUM Chanting
  • Loosening exercises
  • Sun salutation
  • Asanas: supine/ prone/ sitting / standing.
  • Shavasana
  • Yoga Nidra
  • Pranayama

    Yoga asanas are not a form of exercise. They are techniques which place the physical body in positions that cultivate awareness, relaxation, concentration and meditation. Exercise increases the metabolism and oxygen consumption and the body gets hot. When yogasanas are performed, the respiration and metabolic rates slow down, the body cools down and relaxes.
