Sri Sri Yoga is a celebration of the diversity in Yoga in a simple and joyful manner. We combine yoga essentials – breathing techniques, stretching and postures, meditation and relaxation, and yogic knowledge. By incorporating all these beautiful facets of yoga we are able to look deep beyond the level of the physical body and really sharpen our sensitivity and awareness of subtler levels of existence. Practice of Sri Sri Yoga cultivates a more healthy and happy lifestyle.
On a physical level, Yogic exercises strengthen, lengthen and replenish muscle tissues, which helps hold bones and align the whole body. Holding postures burns fat and reduces cholesterol. Yogic breathing brings more oxygen to the heart and nourishes the whole system. The breath work also aids in reducing toxin levels in the body by expelling unwanted stresses.
If the mind is well, all else feels well. That is why, in Sri Sri Yoga, a great importance is given to the wellness of the mind. With regular practice of yoga, the mind becomes more calm, peaceful and alert, helping us to make better decisions and more efficient. Through Yoga, we can effectively deal with and release the stresses that we accumulate and experience while gaining greater energy and enthusiasm for life.
