Today’s desk-bound routine, unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity has taken an emotional toll and put our physical and mental health at stake. Stress, lethargy, arthritis, heart disorders and other lifestyle diseases has been increasing as by-products of our urban routine. Hence, we have put together yoga, meditation and mindfulness modules that has not only proven to be an effective means of keeping fit but also keeping diseases at bay.
Yoga is a practice that is in existence for over 5000 years. The ancient discipline has evolved over centuries under many gurus and its benefits marked as phenomenal even by modern science.
Mentioned in the sacred texts as a way of life, yoga is indeed a science designed and developed to regenerate life force energy through heightened oxygen intake and blood circulation.
The practice not only helps power up your energy but also improves the quality of thoughts. As a result, practicing yoga becomes a significant element to attain a meditative and mindful state.
Meditation is an approach to train your mind just like how exercise is an approach to train the body. It is a practice that helps silence our mind and makes us aware of our inner-stillness and peace.
Meditation is a simple and beautiful way to get rid of our cares and concerns, quelling our restless mind and chattering thoughts. It gives your mind a steady focus to cultivate clarity and attention in everyday situations.
Our mediation classes have been put together not only as an approach to relax into yourself, but to make you vigilant and self-aware of the moment, taking you through a conscious journey of self-discovery.
Mindfulness is a form of meditation. It is designed to cultivate the skill of awareness, wherein you are vigilant about inner and outer experiences receiving them with an open, composed and compassionate mind.
The origin of mindfulness has been traced back to a 2,500-year-old Buddhist practice, Vipassana which means insight meditation. Some claim that the practice goes further back in history; it is noted that in ancient India a range of meditation techniques were practiced, and mindfulness was one of them.
We may not know the precise moment of its birth, what we do know is mindfulness meditation is a quality of presence that is not inherent to a particular culture, but can be acquired by anyone, anywhere.
