Program

Yoga and meditation

Yoga is the way of life that integrates the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga alleviates mental stress and encourages relaxation and inner peace. Furthermore, yoga can also be therapeutic - both as a remedy and as a prophylactic. In the Ayurvedic teachings, yoga and meditation are an essential part of any program of treatment to establish a balance between the Doshas. In all but a few cases, yoga and meditation practice are integral parts of the daily schedule.

The four main paths of yoga:

  • Karma yoga: The yoga of action, the path of selfless service
  • Bhakti yoga: The yoga of devotion
  • Raja yoga: The yoga of mind control, the systematic approach
  • Jnana yoga: The yoga of knowledge, the philosophical approach

Ashtanga yoga

Raja yoga is the path of systematic analysis and control of the mind. Compiled by Patanjali Maharshi, Raja yoga is also known as ‘Ashtanga yoga’, because its practices can be divided into eight limbs (ashtanga = eight limbs).

The eight limbs:

  • Yama
  • Prathyahara
  • Niyama
  • Dharana
  • Yogasana
  • Dhyana
  • Pranayama
  • Samadhi

Yogasanas

Yogasanas are various body postures which are practiced to calm the mind enabling a deep state of meditation to occur. It involves various poses such as standing poses, sitting poses, and lying poses. During their performance, you will stretch and relax your structure fully. This frees nerves from stress and strain and improves their functioning.

Pranayama

Pranayama - knowledge and control of prana (vital energy) is called pranayama. Controlling the mind is not possible without controlling the prana as the two are intimately connected. Through pranayama the body becomes strong and healthy, the mind becomes one - pointed. The mind is prepared for dharana (control of senses) and dhyana (meditation).

Dhyana (meditation)

Dhyana (meditation) is a state of higher consciousness achieved through a fully rested and relaxed body and a fully awake and relaxed mind. In meditation, there is a constant observation of the mind. Meditation is an experience that cannot be described just as colors cannot be described to a blind person.
