Yoga – An Art:

Yoga is a process of self-improvement. It works beyond the physical level. A good session should not just be about a few body movements - it should genuinely improve the quality of life. Both learning and teaching Yoga is an art and as with all art, mastering it comes swiftly with "practice, practice and more practice".

Not only do we practice Yoga posture, breathing, relaxation and meditation at Nilkanth Hall, we also work to express different emotions that are often taken for granted such as laughter, anger, and sadness, for example by using the Lion's Roar (Sihmudra) within our sessions. Many have also noticed the effect that such exercises have had on previously introvert practitioners, commenting that they then opened up substantially and became more confident in themselves.

Healing Power of Yoga:

Practicing Yoga also provides great healing power: practicing Mandukasana (kneeling down) and Paschimmotasana (plough) stimulates the pancreas, Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) is used to stimulate the thyroid, and Sirsasana (headstand) stimulates the pituitary gland. Yoga exercise focuses first on the health of the spine. The spinal column houses the centre of the nervous system, the telegraphic system of the body. As a direct extension of the brain, a healthy spine aids the health of the entire body by maintaining the spines flexibility and strength through proper exercise. As circulation increases, the nerves are ensured their supply of nutrients and oxygen and the body retains its youthful state.
