Namaskar Everyone,

When discussing Yoga and its relation to health it is important to point out from the start that Yoga is an extremely complete health system and has a holistic approach to health and the individual, working on every aspect of ones being. Yoga sees a person as a whole with many parts, all of which are interdependent on each other, and that radiant health depends on the healthy functioning off all these different parts working together in complete harmony.

If one part of the body of mind is weak, dysfunctional or stressed, it will have effects throughout the entire system. Yoga aims to bring the physical body and all its physiological processes, the mind and all its faculties and the spirit or consciousness in perfect harmony and balance, thus ensuring optimal health of the entire being.

The teaching of Yogic techniques and its health benefits are based on an intimate and thorough knowledge of the human body and mind and are designed to maximise ones own potential for sound health, vitality and lasting youthfulness by keeping the body and mind in tip-top condition.

The natural state of our bodies is one of health, as it constantly seeks to restore and repair itself. Yoga practise helps enhance the bodies natural healing process to maintain a state of complete health. Yoga advocates that prevention is always better than cure, and teaches us to treat the body as a whole and to become aware of the intricate relationships between the body and mind.
