Sivananda Hatha Yoga
with Fred J. Marks
Open your heart and reveal the real You.
Your self-image, sense of higher energies,
and compassion for the human condition within yourself and others will blossom
like the lotus.
This is a total healing approach to Yoga. It balances out one’s mental, physical and spiritual condition.
Our physical body is meant to move and exercise. If our lifestyle does not provide natural motion of muscles and joints, then disease and great discomfort will ensue with time. Proper exercise should be pleasant to the practitioner while beneficial to the body.
Yoga means union. Although many people think this term refers to union between body and mind or body, mind and spirit, the traditional acceptance is union between the Jivatman and Paramatman that is between one’s individual consciousness and the Universal Consciousness.
Therefore Yoga refers to a certain state of consciousness as well as to methods that help one reach the goal or state of union with the divine.
