Yoga has become a fashion within health clubs nowadays but what exactly is the true purpose and meaning of yoga?
‘Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.’~ The Bhagavad Gita
The true meaning of yoga is much more than physical image or even health, yet to describe it sounds much simpler. Most profound truths are paradoxical in this way.
The true meaning of yoga is literally ‘to yoke’ or ‘to connect’. At first this is with our breath throughout the whole practice within all asanas (postures) and relaxation/meditation.
The whole practice then becomes a form of meditation where we seek to unite with the breath and ultimately to our higher self/god, through a sequence of postures.
The way yoga has become misrepresented is unfortunate yet there are also some very good teachers out there too who bring forth its true meaning.
Always do your own research too and do your best to stay connected with your highest 🙏💗
