TEACHINGS

 

Yoga means the union of the mind, body, and spirit with the Divine and while this refers to a certain state of consciousness both individual and Universal, it is also a method to help one reach that goal. We teach a traditional, exact and easy-to-learn system that aims at naturally achieving the goal through creating a healthy body and mind that leads to spiritual evolvement.

Based on the teachings of Pt. Shri Ram Sharma Acharya Ji summarized the yoga philosophy in different principles, which make the complex teachings of yoga easier to understand

Yoga poses help develop a strong, healthy body by enhancing flexibility and improving circulation.

Deep conscious breathing reduces stress and many diseases.

Helps keeps the body from going into overload mode, easing worry and fatigue.

Eating simple, healthy and vegetarian foods that are easy to digest notably have a positive effect on the mind and body, as well as the environment and other living beings.

These are the true keys to achieving peace of mind and eliminating negativity in our lives.
