Yoga for Better Living


"Yoga is skill in Action" states Bhagavadgeeta. This is to say, in addition to the skill to improve one’s body, Yoga also comprises techniques that act on one’s mind and emotions providing a "Complete philosophy of Living". In simple words, practising Yogasana and Pranayama is to achieve good health, keep fit, mentally and physically to be able to cope with various turbulence of life and take up the challenge to go beyond them with renewed vigour. Many examples of persons who have started Yoga as late as 69 years have achieved all benefits. Hence Senior Citizens are advised to practise Yoga. Padmasri Yogacharya B. K. S. Iyengar in more than 65 years of dedicated service has helped thousands of patients through Yoga therapy as a non-conventional medicine. SWAS has done a lot of scientific research at their unique centre "Prashanti Kutir" at Jigni, 20 kms from Bangalore under the guidance of medical specialists in allopathy and other systems of medicine and has evolved a capsule consisting of prayer; yogasanas, pranayamas, meditations to reach the needs of common man and accordingly have, opened more than 50 Yoga training centres in Bangalore. Yoga has to be practised -whether Asanas, Pranayamas, Meditations, etc. -under the guidance of a qualified Guru.
