WHAT IS YOGA?

You may wonder what is yoga? The word yoga itself means "union" .The Union of the individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Many people think of yoga only as physical exercises — the asanas or postures that have gained widespread popularity in recent decades — but yoga is so much more.

 

Yoga not only includes the physical movement, yoga is a simple process of reversing the ordinary outward flow of energy and consciousness in such way that the mind becomes a dynamic center of direct perception no longer dependent upon the senses but capable of actually experiencing Truth. Yoga is a profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul.

 

There are various paths of Yoga that lead toward this goal and each one a specialized branch of one comprehensive system. Hatha Yoga ,Karma Yoga, Mantra Yoga,Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Raja Yoga .

 

At Sevati you can come enjoy and experience Kundalini Yoga (Raja Yoga ) Children Yoga (Hatha Yoga ) and Laughter Yoga (Hatha Yoga )
