The Meaning of Yoga in 1 Minute!

The Meaning of Yoga in 1 Minute!


Yoga is stated 5,000 years back in the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. Yoga means cessation of the mind. Cessation of mind – Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha The mind is not thinking about the future; nothing, no fear, not thinking about past, no guilt. You are just present here and now That is yoga. In that ”here and now” What happened? Your body and mind become one. That is what we call Yoga. Yoga is a Union, a together-ness When the mind is not anywhere it is just here with the body Is it simple? Very simple! That’s why Yoga-Postures are designed, to do that! If I put you into the chair pose, try to think, you will not! Go to the Warrior 3 and try to think you can’t! These are all devices to bring you into the present! Pranayama work… (Breath) Your breath is always present. So when you are working on the breath, it’s bringing you into the present moment. So yoga mean just, ”to be present”! In your daily activities… If you are drinking water, walking, working, driving a car. If you are present… – you are doing yoga! Thank you! Keep doing it! Namaste to you. Enjoy
