The word yoga means "union" occurring between the mind, body and spirit. What is commonly referred to as "yoga" can be more accurately described by the Sanskrit word asana, which refers to the practice of physical postures or poses. Asana is only one of the eight "limbs" of yoga, the majority of which are more concerned with mental and spiritual well being than physical activity. Many people think that yoga is just stretching. But while stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the alignment of the pose. The poses are a constant, but the approach to them varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher has trained.
Yoga classes at Shree Jalaram Mandir include stretching, instruction on breathing, call and response chanting and meditation. The variety and amount of these activities are practiced every week and participants really enjoy the classes. Our yoga teacher, Mrs. Jyotiben has been teaching Yoga for last ten years and she is exceptionally good teacher. Currently, we have about 60 participants and they are growing week by week. If you have time and would like to relax physically, mentally and spiritually, please come and join us either on Friday and/or Sunday for Yoga.
