Bringing Yoga to Life
by Mr. Gaurav Vohra*
Yoga is not just stretching your hands and limbs or getting out on the mat to get a flat stomach.
Yoga is a Science and an ancient discipline emphasizing the understanding and practice of morals and ethics, developing awareness and control of the physical body, emotions, mind and interpersonal relations.
Today, Humanity is at the crossroads, despite all the achievements and scientific advancements, in the last few decades, we still need to evolve psychologically and spiritually. Today in this world of consumerism, we are becoming more and more unconcerned, insensitive, apathetic, cruel and brutal in almost all aspects of living and thus have lost the fragrance of life. Yoga brings back the sense of Synthesis, Fruition and Happiness.
