Yoga Teacher’s Training Course
From A Common Man’s Perspective:
For many, the word ‘Yoga’ has become almost synonymous to Exercise or an Aerobic practice. For some, it appears to be some ‘way of life’ that brings in a change in the outlook towards life and for some, it is an alternate healing therapy to cope up with their health conditions. There are a few others who consider it as a practice that might open up their ‘chakras’ (or energy vortexes), giving them a mystical experience.
To be fair to all, let us put it this way; ‘Yoga’ is a way of life which includes certain disciplines that help maintain a good Physical Health and a positive mind that helps unleash our hidden potentials, eventually leading to a successful and purposeful life.
Explore the Ancient Science:
Let us try to get a deeper understanding of this ancient Indian science. Yoga Darshana was one of the six ancient Indian Schools of Philosophy, dated back around 2 A.D. Sage. Patanjali (also known as the Father of Ancient Yoga) compiled the science of Social life into a collection of 196 Aphorisms, known as The Pātanjala Yoga Sutra. This is considered as a Holy Book, by all the Yoga, Gurus, Acharyas, Seekers and practitioners of Yoga. The book deals with the nature of mind, the afflictions that cause pain, the remedy practices, the benefits of practices and attainment of emotional freedom. Yoga Asanas is supposed to initiate one into the deeper understanding of oneself. The practice of Yoga is not just a mere set of Exercises but involves various disciplines that help heal the body and mind complex. While it is necessary to keep the body healthy and fit, it is not the Only Practice that an individual must conform to, for achieving higher states.
