Tibetan Yoga

The Yoga Sutra

The Yoga Sutra, one of the six darshanas in the Hindu school of philosophy, is a set of 95 aphorisms written somewhere between 1,700 and 2,200 years ago by the Indian philosopher Patanjali. Patanjali is said to be the compiler, not author, of the Sutras as they were traditionally for generations passed down by memory from teacher to student. This does not lessen the impact Patanjali had on the world of yoga. His assemblage of this once oral tradition formed the theoretical and philosophical base for all Raja Yoga and is still considered one of the most organized and comprehensive definitions of this practice.

The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad-Gita, the most famous of all yoga texts, is a passage of 701 verses in the Mahabharata, one of the three major ancient Sanskrit epics of India and is said to be one of the three longest epic poems in the world. The Gita, as it is commonly referred, recounts the conversation between Arjuna, the reluctant warrior, and Krishna, his spiritual advisor, just prior to the climactic war on the battlefield of Kurukshetra where Krishna reveals that he is God Himself. Essentially, the dialogue between these two men, accounted over the eighteen chapters of the text, explains the meaning and purpose of life and existence.

Yoga’s History and the Different Styles of Today

Although the exact origins of yoga are unknown, it is thought to be about 5000 years old. The earliest indication of the practice can be traced to what is now known as Pakistan where stone sculptures of figures in poses and meditation were discovered. The earliest traces of written reference to yoga came about 3500 years ago in the form of the Vedas. The Vedas, also known as the Upanishads, spoke of yoga, sacrifice and ritual. They wrote, “When the five senses and the mind are still, and reason itself rests in silence, then begins the path supreme.” This calm steadiness of the senses is called yoga.

Cotton Yoga Mat and Yoga

During a yoga session, complete relaxation and proper concentration are essential, and how could one get connected to the higher realms of consciousness if body discomfort is disturbing?

When Yoga Sets Your Emotions in Motion

In yogic terms, there is no separation between mind, body and spirit. The three exist in union. What happens to the mind also happens to the body and spirit. If something is bothering you mentally or emotionally, it is likely to show up in your body. As you work deeply with your body in yoga, emotional issues are likely to come to the surface. Yoga asanas (poses) help us focus our minds and release any inner tension we may be holding in our bodies.
