Curative Yoga Treatment

yoga

In Ayurveda ,Most people, specially from western worlds, think of Yoga  as merely an eastern exercise program. Nothing could be further from the truth. The underlying purpose behind the practice of yoga - the literal meaning of Yoga  is `joining' - is to reunite the individual self (Jiva) with the absolute or pure consciousness (Brahma).

In the modern perspective,  Yoga is one of the most effective and wholesome forms of experience to control the waves of thought by converting mental & physical energy into spiritual energy. Yoga eases away pent-up tension, rejuvenates the body & soul, enhances concentration, cures diseases and keeps a hold on the aging process.

Benefits of Yoga

  • Yoga helps to bring natural order and balance to the neuro-hormones and metabolism in the body.
  • At the same time, these exercises improve endocrine metabolism, thus providing you with a preventive shield..
  • Yogic postures activate the energies that have accumulated and stagnated in the energy pockets of the body - since left inert, these energies create various ailments..
  • Yogic exercises cleanse your body, mind and consciousness by venting toxins from the body..
