The Five Points of Yoga
The asanas not only produce a strong, healthy body, but as exercises in meditation they provide deep and powerful inner benefits.
These specific breathing techniques align us with our natural energy, creating physical and mental rejuvenation and promoting optimum health.
Yoga teaches three levels of relaxation: physical, mental, and spiritual. Savasana is a vital part of keeping the body, mind, and spirit healthy.
A Yogi eats with awareness, choosing food that has the most positive effect on the body and mind and the least negative effect on the environment.
Life is evolving and accelerating. With Vedanta and meditation, the mind becomes calm and steady. Meditation is especially helpful for those with stressful lives.
