In this talk “What is Yoga?”, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar addresses the very foundation of yoga and brings out its true purpose and potential. He talks about the myriad benefits of yoga and also throws light on the mystical aspect of yoga and its benefit to our yoga practice and life in general.
Yoga is the science of discovering one’s own self – the very source of pure consciousness, peace and bliss. Everyone knows that we don’t feel good and we get stressed when there is disharmony in our lives, when our bodies are tired and our busy minds constantly chatter and judge. The secret to health and happiness lies deep within every human. Through the discipline of Yoga we become more aware of ourselves by doing simple postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation to rejuvenate the body and quite the mind. It is in this manner that we cultivate harmony in ourselves.
