What is Yoga?

Is it Yoga? Ask Nature for a Simple Answer
Yoga is a art of living. Learning Yoga is learning the art of living. Learning Yoga as a exercise training routine limits its advantages and benefits, because then we have limited expectations and are workouts are also physical without giving any attention to other factors.

Those who know Yoga or are already practicing Yoga must understand that actually all the Yoga postures were based on some natural phenomena. Like some form of animal or plant, there activities etc. Although most of the original Sanskrit names have now been transformed to new names (especially in English).

I am not saying that we should strictly follow the traditional names but what I mean to say is that those names were indicative of posture and how to attain it. Today one has to learn these postures from video or instructors who may or may not be quiet adept in Yoga.

Keeping the natural process of doing Yoga in mind will only help in developing our own insight about the posture by watching the nature and its phenomenons.

If we simply follow some exercises in routine which we think are from Yoga, we'll hardly discover all the benefits of Yoga. Understanding Yoga is vital to understand and discover the magic of Yoga. Explore Yoga from its traditions and then from our own views can only help us realize 'What is Yoga?' in its real sense.

Secret of Yoga Posture

Physical Yoga is a combination of different postures. Every pose of Yoga is derived from a natural phenomenon, it is evident from there sanskrit names. People often do not understand a posture because they do not know sanskrit or because original name and meaning of the pose has been changed.

Each Yoga posture has its own secrets which are revealed to us only if we learn about its actual name and its meaning. Each postures name and pose is an analogy to some natural phenomenon. If we understand the name and also watch that natural phenomenon we'll understand how it is to be performed.

Yoga is quiet close to nature and yoga postures bring us close to nature without leaving our present physical location. If we perform each Yoga posture in its intended form then we can feel Yoga in our day to day life. Yoga postures are not like exercise routines which are just limited to physical well being. Yoga postures are much more than that (how much more/less depends on each person).
