The Wisdom of Yoga
Yoga is an ancient system of techniques for all-round health and well being of the individual. These techniques have been tested and refined over thousands of years, and are available to anyone willing to learn them. The scientific and easy-to-learn exercises provide a practical, natural and holistic way to achieve relaxation, health and vitality. Yoga is not a religion. Anyone from any faith can practice the techniques taught in our Ananda Marga yoga classes in South Africa.
Today’s life is full of stress. Despite our modern achievements, many people cannot achieve relaxation and are unhappy, because life is not in balance any more. Environmental stress and bad personal habits also add to this strain. All this results in various physical and mental diseases such as depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and even cancer.
Finding a Balance
Yoga offers a simple and practical solution to these problems and helps us to find a balance in our life. It enables us to deal effectively with the many challenges we constantly face, and to achieve the inner strength, success and happiness we all desire.
Asanas and More
People tend to think of Yoga as complicated stretching exercises. Yet the most helpful of these exercises, also called asanas, are not very difficult to practice. In our Ananda Marga yoga classes you will learn that it only takes a little time to develop the flexibility of our joints and achieve a deep state of relaxation.
More importantly, asanas also work on a deeper level: by subtle pressure on the glands of our body, they balance our hormones. Hormones play a key role in our overall health and well-being. Many physical and mental diseases can be linked to an imbalance in the glands of our body. It is for this reason that we repeat the poses several times with specific breathing instructions so as to place specific, gentle pressure on one of more glands thereby harmonizing their hormonal secretions.
