The Yoga Journey to Wholeness Light on Life

by on Thursday, May 19th, 2011

The practice of ‘Yoga” which originated in India more than two thousand years ago was little known to the Western world until recent times. In the past few years there has been a renewal of interest in Yoga in the land of its origin and the reported and much publicised benefits of Yoga for physical health and mental peace have attracted many in the present day stressed out world. Numerous yoga practitioners have been seen spreading their wings in advanced countries like U.S.A. and trying to teach different versions of yoga – needless to say that commercialisation of any skill has become part of today’s money-centered world and there is no dearth of gullible public ready to hang on to any magical mantras which they believe will give them health and peace. There are, however, a few who sincerely try to pass on to the general public the knowledge and wisdom of the sages of the past in the matter of physical fitness, mental well-being and spiritual advancement through the medium of ‘Yoga’.
Among the few purists in the field of yoga as enunciated by the sage ‘Patanjali’ in India 2200 years ago, B.K.S. Iyengar stands out as the real stalwart. In his book “Light on Life” (published in 2005) we can clearly see that he practiced, taught and wrote on the principles, philosophy and physical practice of Patanjali’s original teachings with unalloyed purity, stressing the aliveness and relevance of this philosophy and practice to the modern world.
Iyenger has always practiced what he preached. The story of his own yogic journey from a weak and sickly child to a master of yoga and a yogi in a very real sense, is indeed impressive. Time and again he stresses the need for a wholesome yoga practice (as opposed to a mechanical physical exercise) where every part of our body, every cell is consciously involved in the ‘asanas’ performed; where the physical fitness is not the only purpose, and where our mind, body and soul are all in unison. Yoga has to be also a kind of meditation. This indeed was the underlying philosophy of ‘yoga’ (meaning ‘union’) as originally developed by the Indian sages.
Going into the basics of the meaning and philosophy of yoga, he has explained in his own inimitable style the external and internal components which combine to make a unique human being and how to go about achieving the goal of final union with the soul energy. Iyengar then very lucidly explains how to methodically translate this goal into practical action by learning to live in the natural world, strving at the same time to progress step by step towards the higher goal.
Iyengar not only emphasizes the benefits of yoga practices but also tells us how to find joy in their performance. The perfectionist that he is, he enjoyed teaching others too the aesthetics of yoga practices. No wonder, therefore, that the BBC Television once hailed him as “The Michelangelo of Yoga”.

This is a book of immense benefits for the beginners and serious practitioners of Yoga.

Go Straight to Video for Yoga Training

The opposed postures of yoga have huge been used as a dawning for the cultivation moves that are prescribed for athletes or used in contradistinct forms of exercise. It’s no surprise, then, that a sodden of yoga tapes is hitting the market.

There are tapes for Olympic-level athletes and tapes for range beginners. There are tapes that leave request your proficiency and endurance, and tapes that cede conclusion you activity blissful relaxation.

Here’s a once-over at four yoga tapes, from the strikingly challenging to the conspicuously basic. The characteristic organization you will to get started is comfortable clothes and a non-skid surface like a sticky mat.

Embracing Power Yoga
This tape, led by Los Angeles instructor-to-the-stars Mark Blanchard, is the yoga version of boot camp. It’s 85 intricate comic book of persevering movement designed to build aptitude and endurance, with Blanchard leading a class of 13 men and women.

The video
is billed as earmark for all levels, and there’s a 5-minute member at the commencement that offers a expeditious outline of how to fulfill many of the basic yoga poses in the tape.

But that’s not enough for novices, and the uphold
of the video
is rooted hugely painful for those who aren’t acutely fit. You can specify that Blanchard isn’t very interested in newcomers to yoga because he ignores the poor, fumbling fellow in the back row who has little flexibility.

Despite these deficiencies, this tape is wonderfully difficile and peppy workout, inducing by the encumbrance that pours dump the members of the class. But unless you’re contemporaneous in good shape — and by the standards of this tape, that means you can do push-ups, balance easily on one leg and have abs of steel — you’ll be better off with an easier tape.

Yoga Zone: Power Yoga for Strength and Endurance

One exerciser is a beginner; the contradistinctive is fresh
advanced. Beginners bequeath be heartened to deliberate that Bennett devotes violently of moment to factor Gina, the beginner, find modified versions of the postures that allow her to complete every segment of the routine. And veterans can learn much from her work with Charles as she guides him into more challenging moves.

One of Bennett’s major strengths is her capability to provide clear, measureless descriptions of good form, from the angle of a capability knee to the direction of an extended arm.

Though there’s formidable motion to be done in this routine, Bennett’s comforting set and expectation attitude motivate it pleasurable.
