What is Yoga
Yoga is a form of exercise based on the belief that by controlling the breath and keeping the body steady, one can control the mind and create perfect harmony between the Soul and the Universal spirit. In short, Yoga is the ď union of the mind, body and breathĒ.

How Yoga works as a Therapy
Yoga practice consists of five key elements: Proper Breathing, Exercise, Relaxation, Diet and Meditation. The exercises or ĎAsanasí are designed to ease the tensed muscles, tone up internal organs, and improve the flexibility of bodyís joints and ligaments.

Proper Breathing : Since most of us use only a fraction of our breathing capacity, it is necessary to use our breathing capacity thruí nasal techniques to cleanse the lungs of stale air, unlock energy & vitality and eliminate toxins from the body.
Proper Exercise : Proper exercise or Yoga Ďasanasí not only increase the flexibility and strength of the body, but also keep each and every part of the body in perfect health and harmony. Regular exercise leads to a healthy body & healthy mind, and perfect equilibrium between the two.
Proper Relaxation : Proper relaxation results in release of tension and keeps the mind and body healthy. It is necessary to begin and end each session of Yoga exercises with relaxation, and also relax between postures, in order to allow released energy to flow freely and to expel waste products from the muscles.
Proper Diet : The recommended diet for a person during Yoga is simple wholesome natural vegetarian food, easily digestible. This keeps  the body vital and healthy, the mind calm and free from restless thoughts. Processed or tinned food should be avoided.
Meditation : Meditation is a state of consciousness, in which the overactive mind is calm, and all mental energy is focused and turned inwards. This recharges the batteries by relieving stress and replenishing energy.

Meditation increases physical stamina and spiritual strength, improves the power of concentration, helps you to think more clearly and positively, hence creating a great sense of inner power.

How Meditation works
Letís take an example. That of a lake. When the surface of a lake is still, you can see the bottom clearly, but when the surface is agitated by waves, you canít. The same is true for the mind. Only when it is still, does one experience inner calm and peace.

Precautions for Yoga

It is best to do Yoga under the supervision of a qualified teacher or Guru.

Avoid eating for at least 2 hours before starting Yoga exercises.

Before beginning Yoga 'Asanas', it is necessary to know your bodyís capabilities. Never try to go beyond limits by forcing your body into a posture it is not capable of.

Always exercise both sides (left and right) of the body equally to achieve equilibrium and harmony.

Avoid tobacco, caffeine, alcohol and non-vegetarian food for better results in Yoga.
