“Yoga is the art work of awareness on the canvas of body, mind, and soul.”
Yoga is the science of right living and, as such, is intended to be incorporated in daily life. It works on all aspects of the person: the physical, vital, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.
The word yoga means ‘unity’ or ‘oneness’ and is derived from the Sanskrit word Yuj which means to ‘to join’. The unity or joining is described in spiritual terms as the union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. On a more practical level, yoga is a means of balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and emotions. Thus it is done through the practice of asanas, pranayamas, mudras, bandha, shatkarma and meditation, and must be achieved before union can take place with higher reality.
The practitioners play a very important role in making any system popular. Yoga and Naturopathy has been into Indian culture since ancient time. Indians did not separate Yoga from daily life in fact it was a part of everyday routine. Indians have always practiced naturopathy. Still nowadays with help of government agencies and other non- government agencies, various courses are held in yoga and naturopathy in order to make the system more systematic. Various degree, diploma and other courses are offered in Yoga and Naturopathy. The diploma courses are offered are generally of one year duration.
