Yoga and Mother Nature
Yoga is an ancient Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline that includes meditation, breath control and specific body postures, and is widely practiced for health and relaxation. Yoga teaches you how to harmonize the body with both the mind and your breathing techniques by means of a series of body positions called asanas, and by meditation. The origins of Yoga probably date back some 6,000 years, but the discipline was not introduced into the West until the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. It has only become really popular as a system of physical exercise since the 1980’s. This popularity followed the arrival of the New Age era, also known as the Age of Aquarius, with its associated interest in meditation as taught by many visiting gurus from the East who were also advocates of Yoga.
Yoga has its roots in a holistic system called Ayurveda, which is translated as The Science of Life. The heart of Ayurveda teaches that everything in the Universe is interconnected. This is in total sympathy with some of the ideas associated with today’s study of Quantum Physics, and is closely related to such ideas as the Law of Attraction and other self motivational exercises. The techniques taught by Yoga will teach you how to replace the negative mind-set and thoughts instilled in you over the years with a positive way of thinking.
