YOGA STUDY GUIDE

Post by lalith on Thu Jul 29, 2010 5:43 pm

THE HISTORY OF YOGA begins with cave paintings more than 40,000 years ago. The text, Yoga Sutras (approximately 2,000 years old), forms the basis of Yoga and contains 196 short verses in 4 chapters. Yoga was brought to Europe and America 125 years ago.

PRANA is a source of energy experienced in the body - a vital life force which radiates health and wholeness. According to ancient teachings of Yoga, the free flow of Prana, facilitated by the integration of body, mind and spirit is a key factor in physical and mental health.

THE SCIENCE OF YOGA is the technology for facilitating the free flow of prana to all levels of our being through an experiential connection to the source of our being – our true self. Disconnection from or blockage of this vital force of energy is a primary factor in illness.

The science of yoga has developed a vast amount of techniques which all lead to the same point of unification of the mind-body-spirit.

Karma Yoga: the way of right action, serving without the motivation of obtaining the results of labor.

Bhakti Yoga: the way of devotion, devotion to a supreme being absorbing the emotions and self in pure love.

Jnana Yoga: the way of knowledge, studying god and learning to discriminate between illusion and the reality that all is god.

Hatha Yoga: the physical path, using the body through asana and pranayama (breath) to control the mind and senses.

Tantric Yoga: the feminine path, worshiping the goddess energy and seeing the body as the temple of the divine.

Kundalini Yoga: the path of energy, arousing the energy stored in the chakras through breathing and movement.

Raja Yoga: the path of meditation, controlling the mind from wandering.
