Over five thousand years ago, it is said that India was the spiritual dwelling place of great thinkers, sages, mystics and intellectuals who created the living sciences of Vedanta, Ayurveda and Yoga. These ancient Indian disciplines formed the basis of an evolved way of life that established radiant health and well-being as every person’s birthright.
Body Mind Light is a haven for the philosophy and practice of classical Hatha Yoga.In today’s world, the authentic and unaltered system of yogic practice that is known as Hatha Yoga, is hard to find. The Sivananda tradition, a methodical approach to the practice of Hatha Yoga, is one of the few schools that still advocate this original concept. It not only consists of physical postures, breathing exercises and meditation, but also integrates age-old principles of diet, devotion, character, lifestyle and the study of spiritual texts.
As an every-growing student and teacher of Yoga, I founded and created this online reservoir about Hatha Yoga, based on the methodology charted by the Sivananda lineage. Here, you will find references for proper techniques and procedures, inspiration to deepen your practice and enriching features to support a yogic way of life.
Discover the secrets of these ancient sciences. Revel in an abundance of positive vibrations. And recognize your own remarkable potential.
“The divine within you is stronger than anything that is without you. Therefore, be not afraid of anything. Rely on your own Inner Self, the Divinity within you. Tap the source through looking within. Improve yourself. Build your character. Purify the heart. Develop the divine virtues. Eradicate evil traits. Conquer all that is base in you. Endeavour to attain all that is worthy and noble… This is the beginning of your freedom.”
