Here and Now is Where Yoga Begins.

Introduction to Yoga


Yoga formed thousands of years ago across India, although the exact origins are unknown. Yoga is for every person in every age; therefore, Yoga keeps changing just as time keeps passing. What ancient yogis did many years ago in dark caves may not be exactly what we do today, and that's o.k. What is significant is that there is still the essence of Yoga there.

Yoga is NOT a religion; rather, it is a discipline, one that leads to ultimate freedom.

The term "Yoga Sutra," an Indian sage Patanjali's 2,000-year-old treatise which is written on yogic philosophy. It helps you understand how to master the mind, control the emotions, and develop in spirit written on a guidebook. Yoga Sutras are the earliest written theory of Yoga, and one of the oldest texts in history, providing the basis for all modern Yoga.

Yoga is based on different postures and poses, but it wasn't a crucial part of India's original Yoga practices. A primary objective was not fitness. Instead, practitioners and adherents of yogic tradition focused on other practices, such as spreading spiritual energy through methods of breathing and mental concentration.

There are six main branches of Yoga. Each "branch" represents a different focus and set of characteristics.

What are Chakras in Yoga

The word "chakra" literally means the spinning wheel. Yoga believes that chakras are the centrepieces of life, emotions, feelings, and the body. According to yogic teachers, the chakras decide how people perceive reality through emotional responses, desires or aversions, levels of trust or fear, and even physical signs and effects.

When energy becomes blocked in a chakra, physical, mental, or emotional imbalances are said to cause symptoms such as anxiety, lethargy, or poor digestion.

There are seven major chakras used in Yoga. Each Chakra focuses its own ritual and rules:

Sahasrara: The "thousand-petaled" or "crown" Chakra presents the state of pure consciousness. This Chakra is located at the head's crown, and the color white or violet represents it. Sahasrara is all about inner wisdom and physical death.

Ajna: This is "command" or "third-eye chakra." It is a midpoint between two important energetic streams in the body. Ajna represents the colors violet, indigo, or deep blue. But the traditional yogis described it as white. The Ajna chakra is the focus of the pituitary gland, which helps in growth and development.

Vishuddha: This Chakra is known as "especially pure" or "throat" Chakra. This represents color red or blue. This Chakra is known as the home of speech, hearing, and metabolism.

Anahata: The "unstruck" or "heart" chakra. It relates to the colors green and pink. Anahata's key issues include complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection, and well-being.

Manipura: "jewel city" or "navel" chakra represents with yellow color. Yoga master connects this Chakra with the digestive system. It also represents personal power, fear, anxiety, developing opinions, and tendencies towards an introverted personality.

Svadhishthana: Masters depict the "one's own base" or "pelvic" Chakra. This is known for the reproductive organs, the genitourinary system, and the adrenal gland.

Muladhara: This represents "root support" or "root chakra" is at the base of the coccygeal region's spine. This is known for our natural urges relating to food, sleep, sex, and survival and the source of avoidance and fear.
