·       Who runs the classes?

·       I’m a little confused; you mention ‘achieving’ yoga. Is this a meditation class only or is it also a ‘yoga’ class, i.e a form of physical exercise on mats to increase suppleness etc? Or both? – would love it if you would clarify.

Yoga is a state one can achieve by your own. The idea of exercising or becoming supple to achieve Yoga is something, which has become popular in the West. Yoga exercises (Asanas) along with breathing exercises (Pranayama) might often be employed traditionally by a Yoga Teacher/Guru to help a student prepare and hone the physical body and attention to a point that one would be ready to receive ones awakening, sometimes called Jagruti, Self Realisation or Yoga. Sometimes this might be over a 12 year training period. Sahaja (Spontaneous) Yoga starts with the actualisation of this awakening and achievement of Yoga (which translates as Union).

·       So what is the point of Yoga?

Sahaja means easy and spontaneous. Yoga means union with the Divine – so this is what you get – an easy and spontaneous union with the Divine or all pervading power – whatever you like to call it. This is the aim of all Yoga even if today people have forgotten this point. The difference is that with Yogamen you will get the experience step by step, in the present moment. It is all worked out effortlessly, all we need to have is the innate, pure desire to achieve this connection.

·       Can anyone do it?

Yes, the living energy within our being, which is key to true Yoga meditation, is usually activated in the first session. The basics of ‘how to meditate at home’ are also explained, so you will have everything you need to make a start. Questions are welcome and answered as clearly as possible.

·       Who is Yogamen?

Yogamen can most readily be described as a starting point in own help for every men.

WHAT IS YOGA - DEFINTION!!

Patañjali

“Yoga is the removal of the fluctuations of the mind”
Knowledge born of the finest discrimination takes us to the farthest shore. It is intuitive, omniscient, and beyond all divisions of time and space.”

“For those who have an intense urge for Spirit and wisdom, it is near them & waiting.”

“Life cannot be known only by the mind,its secrets can not be learned through the mind.”

“The attitude of gratitude is the highest yoga.”

Swami Satyananda Saraswati

The word Yoga means “unity” or “oneness” and is derived from the Sanskrit word yui, which means to join. This unity or joining in spiritual terms as the union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. On a more practical level, yoga is means of balancing and harmonicing the body, mind and emotions. This is done through the practice of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, shatkarma and meditation, and must be achieved before union can take place with the higher reality.

Bhagavad Gita

( sixt chapter) Sri Krishna explains to Arunja the meaning of Yoga as a deliverance from contact with pain & sorrow: “ when mind,intellect & self under control, free from restless desiree, that they rest in spirit within, a man becomes  Yukta-one in communication with God.”

Bks Iyengar

Yoga is one of the six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy, it was collated, co ordinated & systemazid by “ Patanjali” in his classical work: the yoga sutras, which consist 185 terse aphorism.
