“Yoga is a light that, if lit once, will never go out. The better the practice, the brighter the flame. ”
Today, yoga is already so firmly entrenched in our lives that it is difficult to find a person who would have no idea, even vaguely, about what it is.
Yoga is an ancient spiritual practice that came to us from India. It consists of eight steps, affecting all aspects of human existence – from observing moral principles, working with the body and breathing, to more subtle techniques of controlling the psyche, mind and consciousness. In the modern world, yoga means basically – working with the body. In the practice of asanas – postures of the body – there are elements of other steps. This is what determines all the positive effects of doing yoga.
In yoga, like nowhere else, direction, school is important. In our centers, we do classical hatha yoga according to the method of Sri B.K.S. Iyengar. Being included in the hundred of the most influential people in the world in 2004 according to Time magazine, Iyengar presented innovation within the tradition. His method is distinguished by a very accurate, scrupulous, alignment of the body in asanas, thereby achieving a deep physiological and therapeutic effect. In the classroom, if necessary, auxiliary materials are used – mats, bolsters, bricks, belts, blankets, and much more, which allows people of any level of preparation to perform the pose correctly, so that it has a positive healing effect on the body.
