“Yoga is an art,science and philosophy.It touches the life of man at every level,physical,mental,and spiritual.It is a practical method for making ones life purposeful,useful and nobel”
.’B.K.S.Iyengar .Light on Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
“The primary aim of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity and peace,to free it from confusion and distress.This sense of calm comes from the practice of yogic asanas and pranayama.Unlike other forms of exercise which strain muscles and bones,yoga gently rejuvenates the body.By restoring the body,yoga frees the mind from negative feeling caused by the fast pace of modern life.The practice of yoga fills up the reservoir of hope and optimism within you.It helps you to overcome all obstacles on the path to perfect health and spiritual contentment.
Yoga can be tailored to suit each individuals capabilities,allowing students to develop and improve at their own pace-the ultimate aim being fully master the art of meditation to reach an” accomplished state” with body and mind united in total harmony.”
