The definition of yoga is to reunite, to join.
This can be looked at from various levels of the personality: physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual.
From a physical level, the art of yoga practice unites the movement of body with breath. Among the benefits of this are revitalized organs, glands, muscles and joints.
As we move in and out of the dynamic poses while synchronizing the breath, the internal organs are massaged. For example, when we twist we flush out the stagnant blood and bring in the fresh, healing blood through all the organs.
A few twists a week keeps the doctor and aging process away!
At the mental level, we find ourselves in the present moment when we concentrate on disciplined breath work. Whenever the mind is kept in the present, we can find a sense of peace and wellbeing.
On the intellectual level, the act of reuniting means we must reunite with our birthright as a human being. Humans alone have the capacity to think, decide and make unique lifestyle choices. This intellect should be developed and applied to make the right choices in life for happy, healthy living.
And at the absolute level, the spiritual level, yoga implies that we have separated from our true selves – and any efforts to regain our true identity, Bliss, is called yoga, the art of reuniting.
So whichever applies to you – be it physical, mental, intellectual or spiritual – this is what you can gain from a Burgundy High Performance Centre yoga class.
