Why Bodhi Yoga?
We chose our name ‘Bodhi’ as in Sanskrit it meansenlightenment – the state of the awakened master.
The word yoga means ‘unity’ or ‘oneness’ and is derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means to ‘join’. This unity of 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.
Yoga incorporates physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing through regular practise of various techniques including asanas (postures), pranayama (breath), concentration and self-reflection (mediation).
Yoga helps the body achieve greater flexibility resulting in more free flowing energy in the body, easing daily activities and improving posture.
Yoga Asanas are techniques which place the physical body in positions that cultivate awareness, relaxtion, concentration and meditation.
If you have never done yoga before, I challenge you to commit to it for 4 weeks, 3 times a week. That’s not much to give considering you may just find it changes your life for the better.
