Yoga is …

Yoga is the genuine heritage for our present and future, which has been preserved throughout millennia. The practice of yoga is a need of everyday life and the future of entire humanity, not restricted by any cultural or geographical limitations. Yoga is neither a religion nor a philosophy, but rather a regular practice for the purpose of perceiving one’s unity with the Truth of the Creator.

Yoga is a life science that helps us to know the self and find concord with the world around us. A consistent yoga practice opens up a path of wisdom and knowledge, allows seeing the unity of the variety of phenomena and brings harmony to one’s life. 

The Universe is in constant transformation, change and movement. All sudden changes in the outer world each time remind one of the instability and fragility of life. Changeability reveals the hopelessness of human efforts to create an oasis of stability and peace in life. Peace is only possible when our internal stability is beyond the influence of any external factors. Then there is nothing that could disturb and influence us or alienate us from the true path or dharma
