Yoga, one of the six great philosophies of India, is a great Indian gift for mankind. Yoga is a life of self-discipline based on the tenets of “simple living and high thinking”. The word ''Yoga" in Sanskrit means 'union', of Individual Self and Universal Self. Yoga teaches us to learn living with a balanced mind in given circumstances. Various Yogic postures increase the strength and stability of our body, a prerequisite to the stability of mind.
Various methods of Yoga having the common ultimate goal of Samadhi(a state of deep meditative contemplation which leads to higher consciousness), are broadly classified into 4 streams viz.
Hatha Yoga (Ha: sun, Tha: moon; the balance of two qualities) is a part of Raja Yoga and controls the mind through Asana, Pranayama, Mudra (voluntary action), and Bandha (voluntary action to generate positive pressure).
Ayurveda has included Yoga as a part of an ideal lifestyle. Yoga can be classified as mind-body medicine and has a very wide and comprehensive potential for the development of physical, mental, and social health. Yoga has beneficial effects on the body as well as mind and is therefore accepted as complementary to standard management of various chronic diseases including arthritis.
At Saranya, we have incorporated a yoga program that suits the physical limitations of the treatment program while still engaging the patient mentally and spiritually.
