What is yoga?

Yoga is extensively known as a form of exercise that stretches and strengthens the
body through various poses known as ASANAS. For other people yoga is the
realization of inner self satisfaction. For other it is a religion that the believe and
must follow.

All of this statement makes it hard to really make a full realization of what yoga is.
So what is yoga?

Yoga goes far beyond just mere exercises full of awkward routines. Yoga is the union
of mind, spirit and body. Yoga comes from the Hindu philosophy used to attain
spiritual insight and harmony.

What is yoga? Yoga generally refers to the common use of a system of exercises that
is practiced as part of this discipline.

The word is derived from the Sanskrit “yeung”, which means to join. A yoke as used
on oxen is closely related, but also the same root gives us “join”, “junction”, “junta”,
“adjust”, “joust”, and “juxapose” to name a few.

There are many institutions of yoga all of which have their own unique practices and
beliefs. But in this article we have listed down the five most common yoga practices.

However, schools and paths have been established with many different variations
that aren’t listed here.

HATHA: this is the most popular variety of yoga and one that has been commonly
taught for years. So what is yoga for them? For them it is perfecting the mind by
way of perfecting the body.

With this technique many asanas or postures, breathing techniques and meditations
are used.

ASHTANGA: this yoga is another popular type they are much faster than the other
schools. What is yoga for ashtanga’s?

For them yoga can be considered as a type of aerobic yoga for they instill quick and
smooth transitions between poses.

KUNDALINI: This school is focused on awakening and focusing what is known as
kundalini energy. Kundalini energy is most easily compared to life energy that lies
dormant in our bodies. It is commonly represented by a coiled snake.

MANTRA: this type of yoga is focused on calming the mind and body through the
usage of words and sounds. The well known ‘om’ chant is commonly heard in this
school.

TANTRA: This type of school is well known by way of its focus on sexual spirituality.
They also focus on kundalini energy, although their intent for awakening it is much
different from the Kundalini practice.

Yoga is a very diverse practice, no matter which school you choose. People young
and old can gain many benefits from regular yoga practices, and asanas can be
adjusted to fit physical limitations and other complications.

If you want a break from treadmills, weight rooms, or the pool, take a look at yoga.
Not only are you striving towards physical well being, you are striving towards
spiritual well being as well.

Traditionally, yoga consists of eight fundamental paths: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga,
Jnana Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Purna Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Maha Yoga and Ashtanga or Raja
Yoga. In the western world, the term yoga often refers to Hatha yoga and its
postures, movements, and breathing techniques.

The ultimate goal of yoga is the attainment of liberation from worldly suffering and
the cycle of birth and death. Yoga entails mastery over the body, mind, and
emotional self, and transcendence of desire. It is said to lead gradually to knowledge
of the true nature of reality.

Tracing the History of Yoga

Tracing the History of Yoga

The History of Yoga has a lot to do with the present times. The earliest Yoga started some 5000 years ago since human civilization has begun. The scholars have believed that Yoga was originated out of Stone Age Shamanism.

This is because there were some cultural similarities between Mehrgarh which was a Neolithic settlement and the Modern Hinduism. The shamanistic culture of Mergarh was in fact influenced by Hindu ideals, symbols and rituals of the present. The ancient shamanism and early Yoga had so much similarity for the reason both wanted to go beyond the human condition.

Shamanism’s primary goal was to heal the members who were in their community and at the same time act as the religious mediators.

Archaic Yoga also had the same objectives as they were community oriented and they aimed to determine the enormous order through senses and inner vision which then can be applied to our daily lives.

As time went on, Yoga has progressed and has regarded the inmost experience. Yogis then have focused on how to improve the individual enlightenment, recovery and salvation.

Yoga’s evidences were first tracked in the archeological evidence which was found in stone seals exhumed from the Indus valley. Yoga postures were traced and seen fro the figures which were illustrated in the stone seals. the artifacts were placed on History books circa 3000 B.C., which was linked to the great Indus-Sarasvati Civilization which was known to be the largest civilization that exist in the ancient world. The Indus-Sarasvati, being a maritime society, exported goods all over Africa and the Middle East. They build up sewage systems and put up geometrical brick roads and constructed multistory buildings.

The Vedas are known as the oldest scripture in the world which were the ancient texts, was brought by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization. It was a compilation of hymns that commends a high power which included the oldest recorded teachings in Yoga. They have considered this the divine revelation. The intelligence of the Vedas was known as the Pre-classical Yoga or the Vedic. This was described by the ritualistic ceremonies that the Yoga practitioners have been required in order to go beyond the limitations of the mind.

The history of yoga would not have been completed in the classical stage of yoga. After the time and turn of the millennium, yoga and its spread in different forms have come up with the need for standardization. This is important so that the people will be aware with it and it can be applied by them. Due to this, during the second century, C.E., Patanjali has composed and collected seminal text which was the Yoga-Sutra which had defined the Classical Yoga.

At the age of Postclassical Yoga in the enormous history of Yoga, it gave rise to some productive literature which has included the Tantra and the Hatha which is famously known nowadays. These were taught in schools for Yoga and practiced by many. Therefore, post classical Yoga is described to the adaptation of our present state. It is the time when yoga has evolved greatly and introduced to people. It has then been applied in the United States in the 1800’s.

Now in the recent decades, yoga has greatly and swiftly evolved. Swami Sivananda was one of the prominent gurus ever to master yoga. He has served as a doctor and he has generously opened up schools in Europe and America.

Now as we move on with the yoga practices that we have today, it is much helpful and easier to understand if we looked back on the history of yoga.

7 Steps To Complete Search Engine Domination by Ana Hoffman

It took me about an hour or so to print and read the Free PDF from Ana Hoffman.  Her 7 Steps to Complete Search Engine Domination. When I had completed it;  I noticed that I was smiling.  I chuckled. I actually enjoyed my learning experience.  Some people are better than others in explaining in a way that one can understand. People are different and learn differently and fortunately, Ana Hoffman has a way with words.

She has a way of conveying her Smile through her words.  There are others in the industry that can do the same; They make learning fun and keeps it interesting.

Reminds me of the time a Customer had wrote me an accommadation.  I was an Consultant for the “Local” phone company for almost ten years.  I had helped a Customer and she wrote in and said ” I could hear the smile in her voice”. I got the accommandation and recognition for her letter and it became part of my perminate file, but they cashed in by using it in their advertising and training.  The Point Is-That Ana Hoffman can do that in her writings and post.

I recommend getting her Free Offer if you haven’t already.  I think it’s been out for a while now, but I am just now getting to it. So glad that I did. I learned some valuable tidbits that will help me advance my Network Marketing Business. Thanks, Ana!

Niche Idea-Finally.

After months of agonizing over what my "niche"  is or what I am passionate about. It hit me like a ton of bricks.
Everyone said it was going to happen. I kept waiting and waiting.

I asked my best girlfriend what she thought, and although it was a good idea. It wasn't what I was looking for.

This past summer, I got to visit a longtime friend of 35 years and we were talking about his business of a

General Contractor and how busy he has gotten that he hardly has time to do all the paperwork required and

the daily office stuff. He told me for a longtime that he was lost in his office until a friend helped him develop

a system. The first thing she suggested was to make a file. A simple file. With that basic information, he slowly

designed "His" system. Now it runs smoothly. It doesn't take as long as it used to which frees him to do the

contracts and paper work needed for jobs he is working. The most impressive comment he made to me was that

"He balances his checkbook and Company books to the penny. Every month. Since Day One.  I am proud to say

that my friend has built a Great Business, has Earned an A+ Rating with the BBB as well as, built himself a Good

Reputation. He said "The he has always made sure that his customers were Always Happy before he left the job.

No matter what it took."

So in light of this conversation plus a few more weeks of asking  myself "What value can I offer?" Then the light buld went off as I was  listening to a webinar and it hit me. Office Management. Accounting.

Thinking about my friend, there are a lot of people out there in  business for themselves or going into business for themselves and KNOW  Nothing

about setting up and in their office. We see it every day in   the Network Marketing industry. People just like my friend, Tony Deas,  General Contractor with Deas Construction, Tallahassee, Fl. who don't  have a clue about setting up an office. So therefore, they need help.  They need someone who can get them started. Help them get organized. Set  up amd maintain a daily routine.

Okay-So What qualifies me? I went to college for an Accounting  Degree.( I haven't finished-YET)  I worked in an office for 5 years as  an office

manager, for a local Equipment Company who now is a John Deer  Dealership. During these five years I completely Automated their  accounting system. They were still working with a manual bookeeping  system and I researched accounting software and accounting firms and we  made the choice and had it installed

and I got it implemented. I managed every aspect of the Company  records-GL,AP,AR and Payroll. I got to the point that I did all of the  Accounting and could do almost do the Corporate Taxes.

So yea, I Love crunching numbers. I Love organizing and setting up  systems. That is what I aspire to give. My knowledge of a Home Based  Business Office

and Booking Information.

If you're one of those people who need help-I am here to help.

A Way to Meditate…

Everyone has a different way of meditating. I like to read something to calm my mind down. It helps me slow down and reflect for the day.

Recently, I found Vic Johnson and through that contact, I received the ebook ‘As A Man Thinketh’ by James Allen. What a wonderful book. I believe all his concepts are true and I will forward this to my sons, so that they may understand and use this wonderful information to their benefit at such young ages.

Also through this, I also was able to purchase “Day By Day”  with James Allen by Vic Johnson. It’s a meditation book based on a day by day basis for the month. Vic purchased the book “As A Man Thinketh”, but did not pick it back up until years later. After reading it for the third time, he knew that he could finally fulfill one of his dreams of being involved in the personal development industry.  So he launched http://www.AsAManThinketh.net with the sole purpose of giving this ebook version of the book that had  so influenced him. Therefore, producing the “Dad By Day” with James Allen and in it he includes complete text of As A Man Thinketh.

Now back to meditation, I have been reading the meditation guide since receiving it and it has given much pleasure as well as a way to wind my evening down. A lot of people read before bed, helping them to get sleepy. Hopefully, they’re reading something positive, something to set their mind at ease. Your mind is like a computer, garbage in-garbage out! And maybe bad dreams from reading the wrong stuff. Before bed is not the only time I meditate. When I do my gardening, I meditate and pray. For me, that is the time I feel closes to “my higher power”!!

Anyhow, I want to recommend everyone read “As A Man Thinketh“! If you get the chance to grab the meditation book, “Day By Day” with James Allen by Vic Johnson-GRAB IT. It is so worth it!
