Be the Master of your body & mind
Yoga is not only a physical exercise as it is taught in the West. In India it is a science practiced for thousands of years for mastering the body-mind-soul and for living a life of harmony and peace. Imagine a perfectly healthy body and mind, functioning at their maximum capacity without a least a trouble – no sickness, no disease, no stress – that’s what yoga can do for any human being at any stage of life.
The Ayurvedic secret to beauty is Ojas energy, (which is the superfine essence of the seven dhatus: blood, nutrients, bones, marrow, muscles, fat, sperm/ovum) that gives vitality to our neuromuscular system and radiates the youthful energy and glowing skin at any age. However, for enhancing beauty, we use special herbs made of green leafs, turmeric, almonds, lavender, rose, fresh vegetable and fruits etc.
According Yoga, health is not just a mere absence of disease, but a positive feeling of well-being in body-mind-soul. The literal translation of Yoga is harmony – harmony of body-mind-soul, harmony in the relationships with the rest of living beings, and at the highest level harmony with the entire Universe.
