Do you know the benefits of yoga?

The origin of the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit, and means "to tie together", which refers to unite. Although its origin could be located in India, the truth is that this practice has evolved every day and it is possible to observe how Western culture has shown interest, due to the techniques and methods that provide well-being, both physical and spiritual.

That is why, through physical and mental exercises, this discipline contributes to changing the way we perceive the world, as well as our way of life, through the knowledge that each person reaches of himself.

Yoga, much more than keeping fit

Every human being is in constant search for something, which does not know precisely what it is, and when he manages to experience satisfaction, it is not lasting but goes in search of something else.

However, yoga, more than an activity to stay in shape, is a philosophy of life that helps to achieve balance between the spheres of the physical, mental and spiritual, then, it is based on Samadhi, that is, in a special state of consciousness that is reached through meditation. That is why both go hand in hand: yoga and meditation.

Yoga makes it possible to achieve harmony in order to achieve happiness, because it starts from the premise that human beings are a spirit that has mind and body. Because of this, the Viyoga is a technique that tries to make a division in the spirit of your mind and body, to know its nature and better understand our feelings.

According to this philosophy, in the spiritual sense we are feelings, from the mental plane we are thoughts, and from the physical, we are our actions. Therefore, it is often possible many times you can not think or do what you feel, which causes anxiety and sadness.

In addition, as long as a person has a more awakened conscience, he will be more aware of his reality, and it will be much easier for him to discard those ways of feeling that cause him harm, such as anger, which in turn generate other ailments, such as those that affect the heart.
