Yoga is a process, not a procedure which is to be followed consistently to have the best
lifestyle. Yoga is the most favourable method to connect to nature by balancing the mind-body

connection. It can be performed by any age group and it is beneficial to everyone whether the person is
a student, worker, housewife or businessman. It not only balances the physical body but it helps in
balancing emotions. It is a great activity for releasing our stress and anxiety. Many people practice yoga
regularly in the morning and it is the most preferred activity by rich people in society.

Yoga is pain-free but needs regularity and consistency to achieve desired results. Yoga improves
strength, balance and flexibility through its slow moments and deep breathing exercises. You may feel
increased mental and physical energy, a boost in alertness and enthusiasm, and fewer negative feelings
after getting into a routine of practising yoga.

The basic principles underlie the teachings and practices of yoga's healing system. The first principle is
the human body is a holistic entity comprised of various interrelated dimensions inseparable from one
another and the health or illness of any one dimension affects the other dimensions. The second
principle is individuals and their needs are unique and therefore must be approached in a way that
acknowledges this individuality and their practice must be tailored accordingly. The third principle is
yoga is self-empowering; the student is his or her healer. Yoga engages the student in the healing
process; by playing an active role in their journey toward health, the healing comes from within, instead
of from an outside source and a greater sense of autonomy is achieved. The fourth principle is that the

quality and state of an individual’s mind are crucial to healing. When the individual has positive mind-
state healing happens more quickly, whereas if the mind-state is negative, healing may be prolonged.

The origin can be traced from the word “yoga” appearing in Rig Veda, a collection of ancient texts. Yoga
comes from the Sanskrit word “Yuj,” which means “union” or “to join.” Yoga can be traced back to
northern India over 5,000 years ago. Indian monks spread their knowledge of yoga in the West during
the late 1890s. Modern yoga teachings became widely popular in Western countries by the 1970s.

Meditation for the chakras includes several approaches to mindfulness and meditation. Essentially, it is a
form of meditation that targets your blocked or unaligned chakras. You may choose to use chakra colour
meditation, a meditation on energy, or a meditation on an individual chakra. In the latter (meditation on
an individual chakra), the goal is to focus on one individual chakra. For example, you might focus on the
root chakra only, targeting the emotional and physical areas that this chakra represents and influences.
If you chose to do a root chakra meditation, you would be focusing on chakra elements such as security,
stability, and overall basic needs. For instance, you might be concentrating on needs such as
shelter, food, safety, and water. Interconnection and responsibility are some of the emotional needs you

might focus on as well. Ideally, you want your chakras to be open, balanced, aligned and activated. This
means that all of your chakras are vibrating at a high frequency.
