timeless art and a proven science, Yoga
means a union of the lower with the higher.
the awareness of our latent potential to live in a state
of being known as Sachidananda or Truth-Knowledge-Bliss.
SachYoga taps into this potential by working on the
body-breath-mind-intellect equipment through the Ashtanga
or eight-limbed Yoga system first codified circa 2000BC
by Sage Patanjali. This features Yogasanas (postures),
Pranayam (yogic breathing), Pratyahar (winding down
of somato-sensory and motor-cortex activity), Dharan
(single-pointed contemplation), Dhyan (meditation) and
other practices. Yoga is a practical tool for living;
a philosophy in action, equipping the microcosm (man)
to co-exist in harmony within the macrocosm (universe).
Unlike any other sport or art, Yoga conditions the body
and mind in every respect, creates strength and balance,
restores energy and vitality, and sharpens the faculties
for peak performance in any activity.
The manifold benefits of Yoga are well documented and
accepted in modern medicine. Extensive research and
studies have shown that Yoga regulates the hormonal
system, balances the endocrine glands, tones and strengthens
the organic body and musco-skeletal system, reduces
HPB and is effective in preventing and reducing the
risk of stress and coronary heart disease. Research
in both India and the US has shown that Yoga can have
a beneficial effect on children with autism, Down's
syndrome, cerebral palsy and ADHD.
