Yoga: More Than just A Physical Practice!

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

Yoga is often seen as a physical practice, where one does various postures to stretch and strengthen their body. While this is certainly one aspect of yoga, it is important to recognise that yoga is so much more than just a physical exercise.

What does Yoga mean?

The word “Yoga” literally means “union,” and refers to an inner state where one experiences everything as a part of oneself. Wherever we are in life, there is something within us which is longing to be a little more than what we are right now. Whether someone is running after wealth, money, conquest, success, pleasure, or intoxication – it is just out of a longing for union, a longing to make something or someone a part of ourselves or to become a part of something. But these are inefficient ways of union. Yoga is not against anything except inefficiency. Yogic system is actually a set of tools for self-transformation that are designed to bring one to this state of union.

How is Yoga holistic?

Sadhguru defines Yoga as a subjective tool to explore the inner dimension of a human being that is beyond the accumulations of body and mind. He says that yoga is not just about physical fitness but a holistic system that touches every aspect of your being – physical, mental, emotional, and energy-wise.

Yoga means, in every possible way, preparing a human being to slowly obliterate boundaries that one has created so that one can simply be. We have invested so much in creating mental and emotional boundaries due to which that which is boundless is out of reach, out of our experience. The very way you perceive, feel , think and understand life around you can be transformed through the science of yoga.
