On the eve of International Day of Yoga Principal Dr. Jammi Ashok inaugurated the program and stressed emphatically the following points about Yoga to be a part of life.
- Yoga is an old discipline from India. It is both spiritual and physical. Yoga uses breathing techniques, exercise and meditation. It claims to improve health and happiness. Yoga is the Sanskrit word for union.
- The Eight Limbs of Yoga "Patanjali defines yoga as" Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha "- Yoga is the cessation of mental fluctuations."Hence, yoga can be defined as a state of complete stillness of mind. To achieve this goal, Patanjali prescribes the eight limbs or stagesevery practitioner must master. Today, Ashtanga yoga (which means 'eight-limbedyoga') is sometimes thought to be a particular style or series of postures. Butthese are really the eight stages described by Patanjali.
o Yama (Moral Restraints)
o Niyama (Spiritual Practices)
o Asana (Seat Posture With Spine Erect)
o Pranayama (Breath Control)
o Pratyahara (withdrawal of from the organs of sense and the organs of action)
o Dharana (Deep State Of Concentration)
o Dhyana (directing attention to the subject of meditation)
o Samadhi (complete absorption in super consciousness or divine mind)
