With the connection or understanding of the Higher Self, through Yoga we may experience a calmer world within and greater control over our mind and our senses. Patanjali states that – “Yoga is when the self rests in its own being in our own original nature which is pure awareness”.
Yoga acknowledges Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, which is a valid aspect of Yoga but it does not tell the student where to direct that devotion or the methods by which the student should do it.
The spiritual benefits of Yoga are that it builds awareness of the body, the feelings, the Planet and the needs of others. Meditation promotes an interdependence between Mind, Body and Soul and brings about the concept of Oneness and Wholeness. Chanting divine mantras can guide us into a deeper experience of ourselves, finding the inner Light and a deeper peace.
Yoga is a Science, developed for the benefit of maintaining optimum health through Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (Yogic breath) and combined with a balanced diet and lifestyle, one that is in harmony with the constitution (Dosha). Therefore a yoga practice may be designed to assist in balancing the constitution once a dosha analysis has been completed.
A Yoga Practice should therefore combine Pranayama, Asana and Chant and Meditation, to obtain the full benefit of Yoga as it was intended.
