Yoga: Science or Spirituality?
Yoga helps us to live better in logical and simple steps. Thus, according to the guidelines of the ancient texts, yoga is a science.
By living better, in yoga we understand helping our mind to clarity, improving the quality of our mind and understanding the reality of our mind. To realize this goal, the active postures, called asanas, help to a healthy, supple and strong body. With the Hatha Yoga practice that I offer, you can get closer and closer to this goal. In everyday life we are often unbalanced and have trouble concentrating. With yoga, the body learns to sit with ease, mentally calm down and provides more clarity.
In Hatha Yoga there are guidelines with a series of exercises that anyone can learn, but why does it have such a profound impact on our psyche? It is this art that makes it magical and mysterious, not for nothing that there are more and more yogis and yogins in the world.
Especially in the eastern world they put a lot of emphasis on positive thinking. Yogis have been intensively engaged in this already 2000 years ago. By practicing they could realize themselves and deal with negative dangers better. We live more and more superficially and can no longer perceive ourselves, we are moving away from our roots. The ancient yogis show us the way of truthfulness. Even diseases can be cured by yoga and the positive thoughts, this is mainly the goal of the western world.
