Yoga Healing

According to His Divine Grace Acharya Keshav Dev, the benefits of pranayama (yogic breathing practices) include:

Yoga exercises and philosophy have become mainstream longer considered strange in the West. Everyone from students to professionals to corporate executives find their lives enriched, yogic practices are widely accepted for generating many health benefits. In a stressful world of high tech and fast paced living, more and more people are turning to relaxation to halt the deteriorating influences of contemporary lifestyles. Yogic practices are based on thousands of years of use. Yoga is not dogmatic, but rather a science for personal evolution. Practitioners find fresh insights into their own consciousness as well as new, healthier outlooks on the world.

According to His Divine Grace Acharya Keshav Dev, the benefits of pranayama (yogic breathing practices) include:

“The body and mind becomes strong and healthy, fat and over weight is reduced. There is glow in the face and Eyes sparkle like diamonds. The practitioner becomes very handsome. Voice becomes sweet and melodious”

“You will be able to enjoy better sleep, a happier disposition, a clearer and calmer mind. You will learn how to build up your health mentally, physically and spiritually. Due to the practice of Yoga you will able to protect yourself against colds, fevers, constipation, headaches, fatigue, and other troubles. You will know what to do in order to remain youthful, vital and alert, regardless of your calendar-age; how to lose or gain weight; how to get rid of premature wrinkles, and keep a smooth skin and clear complexion.”

Yoga works on the mind and the body at the same time, as well as exploiting their interdependence. No other system does this. Western psychology studies the mind, western exercise physiology studies the effect of exercise on the body, but there is no emphasis on the interrelationship of the mind and the body.

Yoga asanas (postures) and breathing deal with the physical body, but due to their effect on the brain, they also affect the mind. All the wonders of modern science will not bring happiness, peace of mind, health or a long life. Although wonders have been achieved in our external environment – space travel, computers, etc.- our internal environment has been neglected. Thousands of years ago the ancient yogis turned their minds inwards and discovered their true nature. This allowed them to work out a system of body and breathing exercises which results in vitality, rejuvenation and peace of mind.

Why not enjoy the benefits of modern science, but also do yoga to enjoy the benefits of vitality, rejuvenation and peace of mind as well? Yes, you can have the cake and eat in too!
