The Concept/Ideology

Yoga - where there is a instant stimulation of body and mind accepts the presence of subconscious mind over the body and its functions. Yoga as understood is a stage wise eight fold process to the path of liberation from pain and suffering leading to creativity and perfection. In the eight fold path, the first five are known as Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a Psychosmatic Approach wherein the External/Bahiranga yoga is approached. First it is cleansed then the approach shifts to the Internal body. The Internal Yoga or the Antaranga is also known as Raj Yoga. Attaining Raja Yoga is utmost difficult unless the exterior of a man is cleansed.

In order to achieve these, a human understanding is made - his psychological complexities are understood and then laid down to elevate the person from his sufferings. Once so done, the person is then given the knowledge of the heavenly world and then calmed down for a happier life to lead.

Yoga includes these steps :
  • Yama : Conditional Yoga Behaviour
  • Niyama : Various Yoga forms as per personality
  • Pranayama : Control over body and mind through breath
  • Pratyahara : Withdrawal of senses from the outer world
  • Dharna : Concentration
  • Dhyana : Meditation
  • Samadhi : Trans

  • Different Yoga Packages are recommended as per the Doctors Advice which are there in Manaltheeram Yoga Centre. Ayurveda is also suggested sometimes which is a pert of the Centre.


    The Concept of Yoga

    Yoga works on the lines of perseverance, persistence, dedication and total surrender. It grows slowly from within. Merely sitting in a straight position with your eyes closed is not Yoga - its a routine, a method which slowly works on the body to make it more better - physically and mentally.
