Yoga is not simply a physical practice. The practice of yoga is about developing skills that will help the individual to reach the highest expression of themselves: on a physical level one learns to enhance one’s physical wellbeing and overcome and heal physical limitations; on a mental level, to calm and quieten the busy-ness of the mind and achieve clarity or purpose; and, on a deeper spiritual level, to transcend the ego and connect with the Divine life force.
Most people experience themselves as separate to the whole, Yoga teaches that in the creation of the universe, the One created the diversity of many. This diversity can be called nature, of which we are a part. Yet, most people feel themselves as separate, not only from each other, but also from their higher selves.
People tend to think of the soul as “my soul”; as a possession as separate from the whole, but in fact, the reverse is true. Yoga teaches that our sols are an eternal part of thw whole. The purpose of yoga then, is to be able to bring this diversity into consciousness and, similarly, to experience the oneness. Yoga is intended to open the flower of our consciousness.
The aims and goals of yoga or a yogi include the following:
- Reintegragtion of the self through bringing the self into a state of higher awareness
