Yoga’s ultimate goal is to purify and strengthen the body as a vehicle to be fit to house the soul, and through this path to prepare for union with God.
The different postures/asanas strengthen, tone and balance the various parts of the body. The body becomes stronger, more supple, the internal organs gets toned and increase in their efficiency. Practising the asanas frequently leads to overall health, balance and fitness.
Yoga also practises the art of breath control and all the health benefits that accompany the science of correct breathing. These include among others balance in the emotions, increased energy, overall feeling of well-being, feeling peaceful and connected to others as well as connecting with the Divine aspect of self.
Meditation is an important part of yoga. It prepares the heart to listen to the voice of God.
To begin to meditate is to look into our lives with interest and kindness and discover how to be wakeful and free.
To meditate is to discover new possibilities, to awaken the capacity that each of us has to live more wisely, more lovingly, more compassionately, and more fully.” (Meditation for Beginners: Jack Kornfield)
Meditation skills form a basis for a continuous practice of meditation in order to raise the vibration of our energy field. Meditation is one of the keys to self-development, self-knowledge and connection to the Divine. Meditation is important to unlocking one’s true potential and realising the divinity of one’s own soul.
It is one of the most efficient ways to grow on a spiritual level, enhance your psychic ability, enrich your life, manifest what you want and live a life filled with inner peace.
