Yoga

Yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India. Indeed, India is where yoga originated many thousands of years ago. The word is used in the sense of union of mind, body and spirit. What is commonly referred to as ‘Yoga’ can be more accurately described by the Sanskrit word 'Asana', which refers to the practice of physical postures or poses, though the system of Asanas is only one of the eight ‘limbs’ or types of Yoga; the others are more concerned with mental and spiritual growth and well-being.

Yoga is about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the application of poses, each of which has a specific physical benefit. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement, or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the pose's alignment. There is an ideal way that each pose should be performed, though not all yogis will agree about what this is.

Yoga is increasing in popularity in the west where we find it in many forms like ashtanga yoga, bikram yoga, acrobatic yoga. Yoga is for the uneducated individual a series of complicated body postures with the aim to stretch different muscles and ligaments. In the health industry it is used as a therapy for curing backache, joint problems, reduce stress leaves and correct body posture etc. Yoga is the perfect technique for maintaining physical health. It does not only work on the alignment of the body but as well on balancing of the nervous and endocrine system, two major systems which need to function properly in order to maintain good health. But physical fitness is not all there is to yoga. When the technique was first developed around 5000 years ago it was intended as a tool for spiritual enlightenment. The word YOGA is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yuj’, meaning to bind, to join and to yoke. Yoga means integration of the individual consciousness with the universal truth.

In the yoga philosophy ethical as well as existential topics are discussed and a yoga practitioner is advised to pay attention to how he is living in the world and the consequences of his actions. But it is not a religion in that sense that it has any fixed set of beliefs or there is a prescribed godlike figure to be worshipped in a particular manner. There are however suggested guidelines for correct living in the yoga philosophy These guidelines go hand in hand with the physical practice, such as “ahimsa/non-violence” and “aparigraha/non-hoarding”. The ultimate goal of yoga is enlightenment which means reaching a state of purity and love, a “buddha-like” state. The yoga practitioner may notice a change in behaviour and as a consequence of the practice he may become less violent and less interested in creating drama around him, this may happen even though he has paid no thought to the philosophy part. This is because the yoga postures are said to purify the body and the mind restoring balance and harmony in the individual so that he comes closer to his true nature which is light and peace.

Pankaj style of Yoga

Pankaj Seth teaches the style called Hatha Yoga.The word Hatha is a combination of two Sanskrit words: Ham and Tham. Ham represents Pingala nadi and Tham represents the Ida nadi. Hatha is the balance and harmony of these two forces so that the third force, the Sushumna nadi can be awakened and Kundalini risen. Referring to modern science ida is seen as the sympathetic nervous system and pingala as the parasympathetic nervous system, the awakened state of kundalini is a state of full awareness and control over your whole self, even your subconscious mind The practice of hatha yoga aims to eliminate the toxins and impurities from the body and mind and increase the flow of prana or vital force. This is done through the practice of different technique such as Asana (posture), Pranayama (breathing), Meditation, Mudra (hand postures) and Bandha (energy locks).

Asanas - Physical postures

“Prior to everything, asana is spoken of as the first part of hatha yoga. Having done asana, one attains steadiness of body and mind, freedom from disease and lightness of the limbs.” 1:17 Hatha Yoga Pradipika According to the teachings of yoga specific body positions which are named asanas, open the energy channels and psychic centres of the body and mind freeing the body of tensions. This is the same thing as cleaning the mind of impurities. Yogasanas are tools to higher awareness, and asana practice comes first in Hatha Yoga texts such as Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The asanas have positive effects on the body posture and the muscle tension, improving flexibility and preventing joint problems and so on.

They restore the blood flow and balance the nervous and hormone system. They have a calming effect on the mind and are beneficial for treating depression and stress related diseases. Many of the asanas are inspired by nature and animals, there are postures such as the tree pose and the fish pose. In the Yogasutras of Patanjali there is a concise definition of yogasanas: “Sthiram sukham aasanam”, meaning ‘that position which is comfortable and steady’. In this context, asanas are practised to develop the ability to sit comfortably in one position for an extended period of time, an ability necessary and a preparation for meditation.

Pankaj's words on asana practice

“The practice of Asanas improves the flexibility and mobility of the physical body as well as reducing aches and pains caused by wrongly balanced, tense and under active muscles. Many people can’t touch their toes during their first class, gradually they begin to use the correct muscles. Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles lengthen, increasing elasticity, making the postures more comfortable. Many of my students with back, neck, joint and muscle problems give me good feedback after my classes. They experience less stiffness and increased blood flow in the painful areas.

According to the teachings of yoga specific body positions which are named asanas, open the energy channels and psychic centres of the body and mind freeing the body of tensions. This is the same thing as cleaning the mind of impurities. Yogasanas are tools to higher awareness, and asana practice comes first in Hatha Yoga texts such as Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The asanas have positive effects on the body posture and the muscle tension, improving flexibility and preventing joint problems and soon.

They restore the blood flow and balance the nervous and hormone system. They have a calming effect on the mind and are beneficial for treating depression and stress related diseases. Many of the asanas are inspired by nature and animals, there are postures such as the tree pose and the fish pose. In the Yogasutras of Patanjali there is a concise definition of yogasanas: “Sthiram sukham aasanam”, meaning ‘that position which is comfortable and steady’. In this context, asanas are practised to develop the ability to sit comfortably in one position for an extended period of time, an ability necessary and a preparation for meditation.

The practice of Asanas also helps us to focus on the present, when we become more aware we improve our concentration, coordination, time and memory reaction. We also train our brain to cope with the mental stress of modern life. The meditative and calming effect of the practice helps people to reach a deeper and more satisfying place in their lives, we find ourselves to be more in our body and less in our head.

In my classes I found a proper way of teaching is to give my students enough time in each asana. To slowly learn how to feel in each asana, paying attention to which muscle is stretching and how it feels. It also gives the body more strength when you hold the posture for a longer period of time. I also find it easier for people to find the right breathing if i give them more time in each asana to be comfortable and relax. I have selected warm-up exercises to work specially in the hips and back areas. Most of the students are very stiff in the hips and back. These warm-up exercises loosen up the body so that the postures (Asanas) will be more comfortable.

Pranayama - Art of btrething

Pranayama is generally defined as breath control. Although this interpretation may seem correct in view of the practices involved, it does not convey the full meaning of the tern. The word Pranayama is comprised of two roots: Prana plus ayama. Prana means ‘vital or life energy’. It is the force which exists in all things, whether animate or inanimate, although closely related to the air we breathe, it is more subtle than air we breathe, it is more subtle than air and oxygen. Therefore, pranayama should not be considered as mere breathing exercises aimed at introducing extra oxygen into the lungs. Pranayama utilises breathing to influence the flow of prana in the nadis or energy channels of the pranayama kosha or energy body.

The word yama means ‘control’ and is used to denote various rules or codes of conduct. However, this is not the word which is joined to prana to form pranayama: the correct word is ayama which has far more implications than the word yama. Ayama is defined as ‘extension’ or ‘expansion’. The techniques of Pranayama provide the method whereby the life force can be activated and regulated in order to go beyond one’s normal boundaries or limitations and attain a higher state of vibratory energy.

In the Pranayama practices there are four important aspects of breathing which are utilised. These are:

  • 1. Pooraka or inhalation
  • 2. Rachaka or exhalation
  • 3. Antar kumbhaka or internal breath retention
  • 4. Bahir kumbhaka or external breath retention
