Yoga is usually defined as union: union
between the limited self and the Divine
Self. The aim of Yoga is not really to unite
us with anything for we are already united.
It is to help us realize our identity with
the Divine Self, to make us know and tune
into our intrinsic nature. At the physical
level, we need to harmonize the functions of
different organs, muscles and nerves so that
they do not hamper or oppose each other.
Disharmony in various body parts and systems
brings about inefficiency and lethargy or
clumsiness. Moreover, it manifests in
diseases in the body.
Yoga postures and breathing techniques
optimise your energy levels, enhance detox
processes, promote relaxation, and reduce
levels of the stress hormone cortisol in
your system. In between errands, you can use
a few minutes of yoga exercise to reward
your body with revitalizing stretches that
will optimize your metabolism and improve
your circulatory, respiratory, endocrine,
digestive, urinary and reproductive (in case
you are wanting another handful!) systems.
