  19. 19. Effortlessness is the Experience of “Mukti”, “Enjoyment of Freedom”. Towards its ultimatum, Effortlessness becomes Liberation ••
  20. 20. Applicable at all the levels ● Body ● Mind -Emotion ● Perception-Attitude ● Personality ● Spiritual
  21. 21. For Asana: Remember - After , performing Asana [your daily Yoga regime] if at the end of it, if you feel ● Stressed, ● Overworked ●Unhappy ●Drained our ●Lack of Energy ●Tired /lazy to resume yr daily routine
  22. 22. And not ●At Peace ●Happy / Pleasant from within ●Energetic ●Ready to live your day ahead ●Enthusiastic for resuming your routine You need to pay attention “Where are you going wrong” or something going wrong
  23. 23. It may happen sometime after doing some difficult asana from which your body is not accustom to perform, you experience pains and aches in that part, but you will never feel stressed out / lack of energy from with in. Know the difference between- ●Physical aches And ●Inner stressed out / drained out
  24. 24. Solution : ●Listen to your body-be Aware: observe your self while you are doing Asana ●Listen to your body, what is it trying to say ●Pay attention to your inner voice-see what is it trying to convey that you are not able to pay attention to ●See where are you going wrong not able to follow inner instructions.
  25. 25. Sometimes, your body may be too tired, or unwell to do any strenuous exercise of any form [including asana], it requires relaxation more /meditation more first If, you will learn to pay attention to what your body tries to convey to you through inner voice, you will never go wrong in performing asana.
  26. 26. Even after following the guidelines of what your body is trying to convey, you still continue to feel worst, check out with your Yoga consultant / or a good Holistic Healer
  27. 27. But for all these, you first need to be ●Attentive ●Aware ●Observer ●100% presence [presence of mind, body, breath all together] every time when you do your Asana. [Never forget incorporating 7 Keys while you perform Asana]
  28. 28. This is important because, Asana-as defined by Maharshi Patanjali-
  29. 29. Yoga System – Systematization by Maharshi Patanjali (600 BC.)
  30. 30. STHIR-SUKH- ASANAM Asana refers to lack of body movements [niscala] that is not uncomfortable [anudvijaniyam] and provide pleasant feelings with steadiness of body, or even attaining the stillness of corpse. ••
  31. 31. So, if You can’t feel Pleasant, energetic from within What you did is not Asana /Yoga But Mere a body exercise. Charm of Yogic asana is lost then.
  32. 32. Yoga An Integrated Holistic Approach
  33. 33. Not only provides a road to Attain a Holistic Health but also guides one to get Centered to One’s own self- thus Attainment of Swasthata and finally followed by getting United to one’s own Center – thus Liberation /Mukti / Moksha •
  34. 34. Diet in yoga Sattvic food= Yogic Food Healthy food-Healthy life
  35. 35. And Finally……
  36. 36. Personal Prayer ‘O God, May I have the maturity to accept totally, gracefully, what I cannot change; May I have will, courage, honesty and sincerity of purpose to change what I can; and May I have the wisdom to know the difference between what I can change and what I cannot.’
  37. 37. “Yoga is a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are. The practice of yoga is the practice of meditation - or inner listening - in the poses and meditations, as well as all day long. It's a matter of listening inwardly all the time, and then daring enough and trusting enough to do as you are prompted to do...”
  38. 38. ‘I cannot define the word ‘yoga’ for you because it’s definition differs for each & every individual on this earth. Your own individual experience out of it’s sincere & routine practice will define it’s meaning for your-self.’ Come Let us define Yoga for Ourselves.
