Yoga-in-Rishikesh-India (2)
Firstly, the practice of asanas is a vital tip to improve concentration during meditation. In fact in the early days, āsanas were assumed precisely to aid the yogi in his practice of meditation. This is why āsanas were not meant to be stressful or strain the body. Rather, it is meant as a tool for the yogi so that she/he could meditate in a comfortable seated posture. Patañjali mentions that “sthirasukham āsanam.” (Posture is that which is firm and pleasant) Āsanas were not really the end goal in and of themselves. Rather, they were a means for the yogi to achieve a meditative state. Today, due to mechanisation, the average person is not nearly as flexible or strong as before. The practice of āsanas prepares the muscles, enhances our physical

Etymologically, the word dhyāna comes from the noun dhī, imaginative vision, which occurs in the Vedas. It can be an abstract noun derived from the verbal root, dhyai, which means to contemplate. We understand meditation to be sustained attention, or the application of the mind to a single-pointed focus. Dhyāna is then said to culminate into the state of samādhi. Samādhi is the combination of samā (equanimity) and dhī (consciousness), a state where the meditator and the object of meditation (his own Self) coalesce into oneness. Sage Patanjali’s third sutra of the Yoga sutra explains this state. He says, “tadā draṣṭuḥ svarūpe avasthānam.” This translates as, “at that time (the time of concentration) the seer (the Purasa) rests in his own (unmodified) state.” So why does it seem to be

An ancient style of yoga originating back a over thousand years, ‘Hatha Yoga’ can be interpreted as “union of the opposites through a force.” This  power-packed and transformational practice trains the mind and body on postures (asanas), gestures (mudras), breath (pranayama), locks (bandhas), cleansing process (Shat kriyas)  and meditation sounds (nadausandhana), and magnifies the physiological roles of our body while preparing it to attain a steady mind and realize our divine end. ‘Hatha’ is a  term originating from the break-up of the Sanskrit “Ha” and “Tha” that represent the ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ correspondingly.  Hatha Yoga can be referred to the science that balances the solar-lunar and the opposite pair  that is present  within ourselves.  Establishing this balance creates greater intimate relationship with the Self.  As per the consecrated transcripts of

human anatomy introduction himalayan yoga association
Introduction Human anatomy is the scientific study of the body’s structures. Some of these structures are very small and can only be observed and analyzed with the assistance of a microscope. Other larger structures can readily be seen, manipulated, measured, and weighed. The word “anatomy” comes from a Greek root that means “to cut apart.” In order to observe structures in living people, a number of imaging techniques have been developed. These techniques allow clinicians to visualize structures inside the living body such as a cancerous tumor or a fractured bone.   Like most scientific disciplines, anatomy has areas of specialization. Gross anatomy is the study of the larger structures of the Human body, those visible without the aid of magnification. Macro- means “large,” thus, gross anatomy is also referred
