Veda5 Luxury Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat, Rishikesh (Himalayas), India wishes you a life full of health, wellness & happiness!
International Yoga Day is an occasion for rejuvenation and transformation of mind, body & soul!
On this day, Veda5 would like to share with you about Yoga as shared in the Common Yoga Protocol booklet prepared by the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India:
Yoga is one of the most precious gifts given by the ancient Indian sages to humankind. It is said in the Bhagavad Gita, “समत्वं योग उच्यते”. It means “Yoga is a state of equilibrium and equanimity’.
Yoga is not just a set of exercises that keeps the body fit. It is a passport to health assurance, a key to fitness and wellness. Yoga is not only what we practice in the morning. Doing our day-to-day activities with diligence and complete awareness is Yoga as well!
Free from illness, a path to wellness-that is the path of Yoga. Because it teaches us to see others the same as ourselves, Yoga makes us better individuals in thought, action, knowledge and devotion. Yoga achieves oneness through oneness. It brings about oneness among the mind, body and intellect. We begin to understand ourselves much better, which also makes us understand others better.
When we understand ourselves, we become ready to form a constructive bond with the society at large. A bond of oneness with our families, with the society we live in, with fellow humans, with all the birds, animals and trees with whom we share our beautiful planet. Thus, Yoga is the journey from ‘me’ to ‘we’.
The problems of modern lifestyles are well known. We have found ways to control communicable diseases, but the focus is now shifting to dealing with non-communicable, lifestyle diseases. People suffer from stress related ailments and also lifestyle related diseases like diabetes and hyper-tension.
Stress and Depression have become silent killers. Yoga offers a solution to these ailments. Practicing Yoga helps fight stress and find peace. If the body is a temple of the mind, Yoga creates a beautiful temple.
Yoga is ideal for relaxation. Many times when you are tired, a cool shower refreshes you. In the same way, practicing Yoga will truly relax the mind and body. Yoga goes beyond boundaries of age, gender, caste, creed, religion and nations. Yoga doesn’t discriminate between anybody. All you need is willingness to practice it.
In a world of excess, Yoga promises restraint and balance.
In a world suffering from mental stress, Yoga promises calm.
In a distracted world, Yoga helps focus, boosts concentration.
In a world of fear, Yoga promises hope, strength and courage.
