Traditional Medicine >> Yoga & Meditation


Yoga is described as union. Yoga aims to bring this union through the integration of various components of the body and mind into one harmonious whole and in the next stage through the union of the individual self with the Higher Self. Yoga unites a disorganized body and mind into one performing whole leading to the opening of energy channels and flowering of his consciousness. It is an excellent way to cultivate self-love and self-acceptance. It is a science of life that originated in India several thousands of years ago and it has been defined as referring to "technologies or disciplines of asceticism and meditation which are thought to lead to spiritual experience and profound understanding or insight into the nature of existence." Yoga is also intimately connected to the religious beliefs and practices of the other Indian religions. It involves much more than the asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) that most people are familiar with.

Meditation is the journey of our consciousness towards the self. It describes a state of concentrated attention on some object of thought or awareness. Meditation can strengthen the mind, deepen the relaxation and inner peace that is felt, and changes your health and life significantly for the better. It usually involves turning the attention inward to a single point of reference. Meditation is often recognized as a component of eastern religions, where it has been practiced for over 5,000 years. Different meditative disciplines encompass a wide range of spiritual and/or psychophysical practices which can emphasize development of either a high degree of mental concentration, or the apparent converse, mental quiescence. Each and every type of mental and physical diseases may be cured by meditation.
