Yoga is far more than physical health of the physical body
Health has got different faces – the levels of holistic health
Yamas(restraints) and Niyamas(observances) have got seven States of awareness.
Conquest of the body – ana maya kosha – physical
conquest of the indriyas(elements) – ethical
conquest of the mind – mano maya kosha – mental
conquest of the intelligence – vijnana maya kosha – intellectual
conquest of the conscience – ego – conscience
conquest of consciousness – Ananda maya kosha – consciousness of will
consciousness of consciousness – Self-reflexive consciousness pure consciousness.
Reflexive Self-consciousness is the highest individual aim of Yoga and Meditation – consciousness of consciousness, consciousness conscious of itself reflexively. For greater insight about this supreme ideal, visit our studio and learn the discipline.
