Pursuit of Perfection

An urge for perfection is innate in all conscious being. Every action of man directly or indirectly leads to that aspiration. Many deeds are intentionally poised with a pursuit of perfection. The quest for completion is always felt with a simultaneous feeling of some inner void. Therefore, every moment in life has a conspicuous desire for being better. In other words no self will purposefully desire for remaining in a less perfect realm or going backward from the present state of being. In such considerations, even a wrong deed is a pointer towards the need for one’s own improvement.

Myths on Yoga System

Yoga is a system that promises wellness to any aspirant. Anybody can practice it. A regular and appropriate practice makes many areas of human life better; the physical body that consists of muscles, bones, blood vessels, cells etc; the vital body that consists of energy that manifests in the form of emotions; the mind which is responsible for the thought process; the spirit that relates oneself to the cosmic self. Thus, the focus of yoga is on the holistic well-being.

Yoga and Its Effects on Your Sex Life

As I settle down to write this article, the words “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all” comes to mind. The words of this song, reminds me of the greatest gift you receive from yoga. As a woman, from an early age, you receive mixed messages from society, friends and family regarding “sex”. On one hand you are encouraged to be strong, independent, confident and in charge. Yet, when the subject of sex crops up, you are somehow not allowed to voice your opinion.

Yoga Pants Are Here To Stay

Yoga Retreats – What They Are and Why You Should Go

In the deep recesses of your mind there’s a voice crying out. The screams barely register above whispers with the racket of responsibilities and distractions drowning out any clear thought. Then, as if by providence, after showing up early to work only to be berated by your superior about someone else’s mistake, being stuck on a stopped train for ten minutes before the conductor announced that the train would not be moving for another ten minutes, and having a conversation with your mother about your marital status (or lack there of); you let out a big exhale just as your chest is about to explode and the screaming voice crystallizes in your mind. “I need a vacation!” When that light bulb goes off, I highly encourage you to look in to a yoga retreat as a wise investment of your time, money, and energy.

Yoga Retreats – Meditation and Spiritual Retreats

Yoga Retreats – What To Expect

The beauty of a yoga retreat is that, like an asana, no two are exactly alike. That makes the task of describing what you can expect when you arrive there somewhat difficult. I would encourage you to do a little research when deciding where you’d like to go. If you have a studio that you practice at regularly, you’d probably be most comfortable going on a retreat led by one of its instructors. The chances are if you like the energy of the studio you will appreciate its choice of retreat location.
