New to Yoga

Yoga comes to you
There's a saying that yoga comes to you, not the other way around. The idea that it bestows its ancient wisdom upon you because you are in need of it is quite magical to me and I fully believe it. I have heard this many times and for me it was most definitely true.
So, whatever has brought you to yoga, I am glad it found you. Not everyone dives right in and takes on a full practice, but that's the beauty of it. It gives you whatever you need, when you need it.
If you are coming to yoga late in life you may find it hard. This is not necessarily because it is hard, but because of your perception of it. By this I mean anyone can practice yoga, regardless of age, gender, height, weight, physical conditions and so on, but because the perception is that you have to wrap yourself around your own body like a pretzel you aren't capable of it. This is not true and a complete myth that needs to be dispelled right from the get go.
Bend like a pretzel
Yoga postures do take on pretzel form at some point but not always and not in everyone's journey. The further we are from our child-like state the harder we will find the physical postures to practice, but that does not mean they aren't attainable. We have to start where we are at, with what we have. Actually by trying to attain the postures themselves in their full expression at the beginning is where the first lessons of yoga lie. The first lesson is then one of patience. To practice yoga, you must practice patience, with yourself.
It is extremely difficult for most people to come to a yoga class and not gaze at the teacher or the person next to them and try to push harder in the. It is human nature and rather than working with our own body, warts and all, our egos get in the way. By pushing in this way you can injure yourself which just adds more time and yes you guessed it, more of a need to be patient. If I could give one piece of advice to a yoga newbie it would be that of patience - be patient with yourself, the postures will come. Be comfortable with where you are at, with all your physical limitations, conditions and anything else you perceive to be in your way. Just focus on practising patience (and breathing of course!)
Mind, Body, Soul
Yoga means different things to different people. The majority of people first come to yoga because of the physical benefits it can offer. They want to lose weight, tone up, feel healthier or perhaps help a medical condition or physical symptom. Yoga works on all physical conditions. There are others who are more attracted to the emotional and/or spiritual side, but in my experience people who are new to yoga are often drawn to it, they feel, because of the physical benefits. What's interesting here is that we are connected on all three levels; mind, body and spirit, so actually when we have a physical condition whether that be something medical or simply just being overweight or unfit, it will always be linked to our emotions and ultimately, whether we choose to believe it or not (and there are many who do not) connected on a subtle, spiritual level too. You don't have to acknowledge this fact to practice yoga, but it is worth knowing when you begin that you are actually working on all three levels of your being, not just the physical.
There was, a few years ago, a yoga introduced called NO OM. There are many new forms of yoga that evolve. They are always derived from the same physical (hatha) postures but are put together differently or modified in some way to make them seem different. NO OM literally meant practising yoga and gaining all the physical benefits but never chanting the word OM. The founder loved yoga but did not buy into the spiritual side of it and felt it put people off, so literally banished it to the black hole and making sure everyone who came to practice knew that it was OK because it was a NO OM zone. Whatever works, but banishing it doesn't make it disappear. Just because you do not acknowledge something does not mean it does not exist.
Be Open
Based on this information, I would encourage you to be open minded. Don't be afraid of what you do not understand. Yoga does not change your mind (well not in a bad way) and by that I mean it does not brain wash you into believing in Hindu gods and goddesses or try to convert your religion. There are people out there who do believe that. Yoga is born out of ancient Vedic wisdom which is set out in the oldest recorded writings there are. The path of yoga is based on fundamental universal truths that have been taught since time began. It does not conflict because by nature it is harmonious. Indeed, yoga itself means union - to join or harmonise your being; to bring together your mind, body and spirit in union or in harmony. Ultimately, it's goal is self-realisation which simply put means to better understand yourself - to leave you feeling a happier, healthier and more fulfilled person - and to that I say, bring it OM.
Yoga saved my life, literally and I am a devoted practitioner of Ashtanga yoga which I practice 6 days a week, usually at the beautiful, somewhat ungodly hour of 5 am. I am a writer, always have been from the age of 7 and having a blue typewriter which I tapped out stories on, actually wishing I was going to grow up to be an air hostess! I love photography, in all it's guises, especially black and white.

Exploring the Different Types of Yoga

Yoga is generally understood as a process of unification. This unification is multifaceted. In one dimension, it is a unification of the various systems that exist within the human being including the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual systems. In total there are believed to be five different systems within human life. These are typically referred to as the koshas which are the physical, energetic, mental, subtle, and bliss sheaths. In our current understanding of yoga, we are working to unify these five bodies or layers of the human being.   Another process of unification occurs between of the individual consciousness and the universal consciousness.
This unification is often referred to as Samadhi and is one of the primary transformations that occur within the practice of yoga. Observing this from a different angle, Samadhi is a transformation of perception in which disillusionments about the world are reformed so that the truth behind reality can be seen in its purest of form.   Yoga, as a system, has developed into various branches through which people pursue the evolution and unification of the elements within their being. Each branch retains its own unique set of ideas and philosophies which defined the process and eventual obtainment of complete unification.  
There is no right or wrong system of yoga as the each possesses their own distinct characteristics that accommodate the needs of various characteristics and personalities that exist among human beings. Each system is designed to accommodate a different personality type, and yoga has developed into a broad-reaching system that can be practiced by nearly anyone who is interested in pursuing a spiritual life. A practice like Jnana yoga is ideal for someone who is philosophically minded whereas the practice of bhakti yoga is good for someone who is emotionally perceptive and inclined towards a sense of devotion.   In this article we will be reviewing the more mainstream practices of yoga which are derived from the tradition of yogic spirituality. These traditions of yoga are as young as 500 years and as old as several thousand. While there are many modern practices of yoga which have been defined by various teachers, the systems we will be discussing are traditional systems which have been in existence throughout many generations.  
Bhakti Yoga   The first system we will discuss it is Bhakti yoga. Bhakti yoga is a practice in which the spiritual practitioner focuses on developing a state of devotion within the mind and the heart. In bhakti yoga a strong sense of faith is needed as one is expected to submit themselves to God through a process of self-surrendering. The practices and techniques of bhakti yoga are therefore designed to help surrendered the ego and embrace with love the thought of the creator. The more common practices of bhakti yoga are kirtan (chanting/song), Japa (mantra repetition), and meditation on the divine.  
Usually the practice of bhakti yoga is advised to be practiced by those who are well connected to their emotions and also receptive of more subtle feelings within themselves and others. Emphatic love defines the practice of bhakti yoga as the practitioner devotes their whole being towards the spiritual divine. A belief in God or a higher being is vital to the practice, and without it, it is near to impossible to practice bhakti yoga.   The devotion that is practiced by the bhakti Yogi is not one of slavery towards the divine. Rather, it is a relationship that is filled with love, friendship, and companionship. In bhakti yoga people view God as a friend, a lover, a father, or mother. It is through this relationship that bhakti yoga is practiced.   There are many aspects of devotion for the bhakti yogi; there are many forms of God that are worshiped in yoga including Shiva, Vishnu, Brahman, Parvati, etc. Aside from the metaphysical forms of God, a guru or teacher can also be worshiped within the practice. The primary purpose of this practice is to help in relinquishing the ego and unifying the individual being with the universal.    
Karma Yoga   Karma is an aspect of human life that is responsible for our thoughts, feelings, and actions. It is believed in yoga that Karma keeps the cycle of rebirth in motion as past actions and events force us to take another life in the world to balance out the inequalities that we have imposed within our spirit and the universe. Once accumulated Karmic merit is balanced or destroyed then cycle of birth and death is stopped and the spirit is return to its origins within the universal divine.   The practice of Karma yoga directly addresses this primary aspect of life, works to abolish the effects of Karma with disciplined action that formulates a separation between the individual and the effects of Karma. This separation occurs through a process of disassociation in which the individual separates themselves from the benefits or losses from their actions within the world.  
The practice of Karma yoga is typically based around one's Dharma or duties within the world. Dharma is determined by the actions of the individual in the past, including both the past of the current life as well as the past of previous lives. In some respects, Dharma is the most effective way for an individual to use their time on earth for spiritual progress as it is based upon the realistic capacities and potential of the individual.   One of the main components of Dharma is acting in the world without thought of the benefits or losses of one's actions. The practitioner lives and acts within the world without any expectations or imposed impressions of how the future should unfold. The mind is focused on selfless service and working for the benefit of the greater good as opposed to the independent needs of the individual. In Karma yoga the practice is gradual as the individual slowly relinquishes the bonds of karma and liberates the spirit from the confines of egocentric thought processes.  
Although a Karma yogi may practice techniques such as the asanas, breathing practices, and meditations, the primary focus of their spiritual practice is service and actions with the focus of selflessness and humbleness.   The first mention of Karma yoga is within the Bhagavad-Gita in a dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna. In this dialogue, Krishna informs Arjuna that he can merge his consciousness with Krishna's when he surrenders his actions to the divine (which in this case is Krishna). Krishna encourages Arjuna to act and follow out his duty without worry or consideration of the benefits or losses of his actions. He informs Arjuna that acting in the name of Krishna (or divine) will provide him with the liberation that he has set forth to achieve.  
Kundalini Yoga   Kundalini yoga is a practice of yoga which originated from the practice of tantra yoga. Historically speaking, tantra yoga is believed to be one of the oldest forms of spirituality which is still in practice today. One of the key components of tantra yoga is the incorporation of kundalini which is considered to be the primordial force existence within each human being. The practice of Kundalini yoga was formed to control and harness the potential of the kundalini energy within the body.   Unlike the other systems of yoga, kundalini yoga can be a highly unstable practice of yoga as the release of kundalini energy can lead to extreme psychological and physical disorders if not controlled in the proper manner.
Therefore, the practice of kundalini yoga is a highly advanced system which is usually only practiced by those who are well advanced in the practices of spirituality. One of the primary prerequisites of kundalini yoga is a strong mind and a healthy body without which the release of kundalini energy can be damaging or even fatal. Even a specific term in psychology known as kundalini syndrome has been developed for those who have gone into dementia because of the improper release of kundalini energy.   In kundalini yoga the techniques presented are designed to help awaken the kundalini energy. Aside from its definition as the primordial energy, kundalini is also known as the serpent energy. Prior to its awakening, the kundalini energy rests at the base of the spine in the form of a spiraled coil similar to that of a serpent. When released, the kundalini energy shoots up through the spine, making its way towards the crown of the head. Depending upon the purification of the energy channels along the spinal column known as chakras, the kundalini will either reach its final destination and the head or will be stuck within one of the chakras.   Usually kundalini yoga starts by purifying all the chakras. This purification helps to maintain a balance flow of prana within the body. It is believed that a balance flow of prana within the body leads to a sound state of mind and body. Once the body, mind, and pranic channels are purified, the practitioner of kundalini yoga works to release the kundalini energy. The purification process an essential quality of the practice as it helps to ensure a smooth flow of kundalini energy through the chakra system.  
For both the purification of the chakras as well as the release of kundalini energy a wide variety of techniques are implemented. These include yoga asanas (postures), pranayamas (breathing practices), meditations, and mudra (gestures) specifically designed to help regulate the pranic energy and awaken kundalini.   Unlike some of the other systems of yoga, kundalini yoga should never be practiced through self-training. It is vital that one who is interested in practicing kundalini yoga finds an adept practitioner and teacher of this system of yoga to guide them through the process. Without such guidance, it is likely that severe physical and mental disorders will arise as kundalini energy is a highly potent element within the human body that is not meant to be tempered with unless the body, mind, and pranic channels are fully purified. There are countless tales of individuals who released kundalini yoga prematurely and found themselves in a disoriented and neurotic state. There are many books published on kundalini yoga and those who have experienced kundalini energy always advise to have a highly knowledgeable and observant teacher to guide a practitioner through the system of kundalini yoga.  
Hatha Yoga   The word hatha has several meanings. Typically it is divided up into two individual words, ha and tha. The meaning of these words can be interpreted as the sun and the moon. It can also be said that these two words are Beeja Mantras or primordial sounds that are responsible for composing matter. At the same time, ha represents the pranic body while tha is that of the mental body. Whichever interpretation one chooses to believe or follow, an essential component of hatha yoga is a balancing of the polarities of energy within the body (ida and pingala) as well as a purification of the mind and the body.  
Most people, in a modern context, consider hatha yoga to be a practice of the physical body. While this is not incorrect, hatha yoga includes many more philosophies and techniques that address more subtle aspects of the human system. One of the essential components of hatha yoga is the element of purification. In hatha yoga purification occurs within the many aspects of the human being; there is a purification of the physical, mental, and energetic, and emotional bodies. It is believed that once all of the bodies are purified than spiritual advancement towards self liberation can occur.   Unlike Raja yoga, which we will discuss later, hatha yoga does not outline a prerequisite of moral values before conducting the techniques of yoga. Rather, hatha yoga begins with the yoga postures or asanas and the energetic purification techniques of pranayama. Once a considerable understanding of these two practices is attained, more advanced techniques including Shatkarmas (body cleansing), Pranayamas (nadhi cleansing), Mudras (energy channeling), Bundhas (energy locks), and other techniques which lead towards Samadhi (self-realization) can be practiced.  
Similar to most practices of yoga, hatha yoga maintains the belief that techniques such as meditation and concentration should only be practiced after the body and the mind having purified. Without such preparation it is useless to practice meditation as no benefit will be received from the practice.   Hatha yoga originated from a number of texts all of which were written between 500-1500 A.D. In comparison to the other forms of yoga we are discussing, hatha yoga is the youngest of them all with its major text the Hatha Yoga Pradipika being finalized in the 16th century.  
Hatha yoga could be considered to be a preliminary practice to more advanced systems of yoga, however it possesses within itself the capability to lead towards spiritual liberation. A more modest system of yoga, hatha yoga can be practiced by most people and does not require a well-established mind and body to begin the practice. Therefore, it is a practice used by many who wish to use yoga as an aid towards spiritual freedom.  
Raja Yoga   Raja yoga is considered the Royal path and is literally translated as royal union from Sanskrit. The system of Raja yoga is derived from the teachings of Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras which were written between 100 and 300 A.D. Some may also refer to this system of yoga has Ashtanga Yoga, however Raja yoga has been the traditional terminology used for the practice of yoga guided by Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and some distinctions separate the two from one another. Here, we are primarily concerned with the traditional system of Raja yoga which has been practiced in India since the origins of the Sutras.   Raja yoga is a path of intuition and also psychic perception. Therefore these two facilities are needed in order for spiritual growth to occur. Some spiritual masters like Swami Tureyananda believe that Raja yoga is practiced after one has obtained substantial transformation through preliminary practices of yoga.
Even still some other teachers believe that the practice of Raja yoga is commenced after preliminary states of Samadhi are experienced. Therefore, Raja yoga is not a practice for the vast majority of people.   In the yoga sutras, Patanjali lightly outlines the prerequisites for the more advanced techniques of yoga. The vast majority of the yoga sutras are devoted to understanding and controlling the mind including its four components of Chitta, Buddhi, Manas and Ahamkara. Considerable attention is given to how the mind works and operates as well as the various levels and dimensions that exist within the mind. The remainder of the text discusses the stages through which one experience along the path towards self-realization, and attention is given to all the various pitfalls that can arise along the way.   The system of Raja yoga is generally outlined in defined within the "8 limbed path." These limbs include:
  • Yama- code of conduct and self-restraint
  • Niyama- religious observances, devotion to ones practice, and discipline
  • Asana- formation of a stable seat for both the mind and the body
  • Pranayama- regulation of breath which leads to a unification and balance between the body and the mind
  • Pratyahara- withdrawal of the sensory organs of perception from the external environment including all five senses (six if you include the mind)
  • Dharana- concentration
  • Dhyana- meditation
  • Samadhi- self-realization, or a super conscious state of being.
Together these eight limbs form the practice and systematic approach of Raja Yoga. Like kundalini yoga, Raja yoga requires a significant amount of guidance and direction without which many problems and ultimate failure will arise. It is therefore essential that one who is interested in practicing Raja yoga finds a teacher or guru who has perfected the system and has achieved a true state of self-realization.  
Jnana Yoga   The practice of Jana yoga is easily understood within the two words 'Jana' and 'Yoga' which together mean 'Union through Wisdom.' the practice of Jana yoga is a very practical system for the Western mind which usually approaches things through the intellect and rational deduction. While ultimately these two aspects are abandoned later in the path, Jana yoga begins with intellectual inquiry and rational observation. While Jana yoga encourages a belief in God or the supreme, it does not necessitate the belief and therefore it can even be used by those who are rational atheists.   The techniques used in Jana yoga are primarily concerned with a process of deduction in which one observes all aspects of life.
A process of self inquiry and questioning is undertaken as the practitioner gradually removes the illusions and misperceptions of the mind as they work towards the truth of their most basic nature. The practice of Jana yoga can be understood within the simple Sanskrit phrase "Neti, Neti," which is openly translated as not this, not that. In Jana yoga one removes the various layers of the onion of their mind until they reached the core which is nothingness or unmanifested.   Jana yoga has four major guidelines which helped to lead to the practitioner towards self-realization. As Jana yoga is primarily a system of inquiry, it does not require techniques such as pranayama and asanas in order to achieve self-realization. The four guidelines of the Jana Yogi include: Viveka- Discrimination (between truth and not truth); Vairagya- Dispassion (from attachment world and the mind/body); Shad-Sampat- Six Virtues (tranquility, dama (sensory control), uparati (renunciation), titiksha (endurance), shraddha (faith), and Samad Hana (concentration)); and Mumukshutva- longing for liberation.  
Conclusion   If you have read this article for the sake of finding a system of yoga to help you grow spiritually, it would be advisable to do further research into the systems that seem compatible to your needs and character. Not every individual is practicing yoga for the sake of self-realization. Each system of yoga provides its own unique benefits that evolve from the practice and therefore can be practiced without the intention of achieving self-realization. While the ultimate goal of yoga is liberation, there are many benefits of the practice that naturally occur as the body, mind, and energy within the human being are purified.   As mentioned previously, if you decide to take up the practice of Raja yoga or kundalini yoga it is best to seek an experienced guide before commencing the practice. However, ultimately, every system of yoga requires a guru or adept practitioner who can direct the student through a specific system of yoga.  
Each style that we have mentioned above is unique and there is no right or wrong one, or one that is better than the other. In actuality, there are thousands of different styles of yoga, yet the ones we have mentioned are the primary branches for the practical side of yoga. When choosing a practice, select one that seems to possess characteristics that are in harmony with your personality and individuality. Starting from there will give you a good relationship to your practice and make it easier to gradually introduce it into your life on a daily basis. A consistent practice provides the greatest opportunity for self-growth and transformation.

Is HUMAN LIFE on earth a matter, fundamentally, of
misery and sorrow? This is a problem which seems to
have engaged the minds of the Indian thinkers since
ancient times. The answer to this question, as most of
them appear to believe, is in the aflirmative. It is an
important business of philosophy, according to the
Indian tradition, to seek to attain a state which is com-
pletely free from the clutches of misery and sorrow.
This state has been variously spoken of as moksha,
mukti, kaivalya, APA Varga, nirvana, and so on, by the
adherents of various schools of philosophy in India,
and philosophy is, therefore, tmly called tattva jnana, or
darshana. Whether all these words signify one and the
same state, may be a moot point. But the fact of a
complete cessation of suffering applies equally to all of

The notion of suffering as a dominating factor in
human life has loomed very large in Indian philoso-
phy. In fact, it may be called the starting point of
philosophical inquiries. Human suffering is traditionally
supposed to be divided into three main types as

i) The bodily and mental conditions of an

individual, such as ill health, disease, and emotions like
hate, fear, passion. and so on .

ii) Suffering imposed on an individual through
harmful behaviour of other human beings, animals,
insects, and so on.

iii) Suffering which cannot be attributed to other
beings, which is largely beyond the control of an
individual e.g., earthquakes, floods, famines, epi-
demics, and the like.

Beaten by the three-fold impact of suffering in the
above manner, an individual is motivated or induced
to think or act in such a way that he would ultimately
succeed in overcoming the suffering. Naturally, the first
response of an individual springs from the experiential
field, and is based on common sense considerations.
For example, one works at one’s job in order to avoid
starvation, takes medicine to get rid of diseases, con-
structs buildings, business industries, centres of pro-
duction, etc., to foster good living conditions for the
members of a society. In addition to this, an individual
tries to belong to various organizations, parties, sects,
blocks and groups, in order to overcome fear and the
feeling of insecurity. Besides these common sense
measures, and especially when these are found inade-
quate or ineffective. one turns to religion, to the gums,
to the spiritual guides and masters, and indulges in
prayer, devotion, faith and the like. It is found, how-
ever, that both these ways lack the power of wiping out
sorrow completely and in a once-for-all manner. For
example, one may temporarily become physically fit
by taking medicine, but some other disease may crop
up after some time; the religious organizations and
practices may not give full satisfaction, and one may
have to run from one spiritual teacher or book to another.

There is some exceptionally intriguing brain science behind this that understudies of western masterminds (e.g. Freud, Jung, Fromm, and so forth.) will discover well known and, in reality, very levelheaded.

At the point when an individual chooses to be glad, something inside that individual initiates; a sort of will or mindfulness develops. This mindfulness starts to watch the wilderness of negative musings that are swimming always through the brain.

Instead of assaulting each of these contemplations - on the grounds that that would be an unending battle! - yoga just encourages the person to watch that battle; and through that watching, the anxiety will reduce (in light of the fact that it gets to be uncovered and along these lines unfed by the oblivious, distracted personality!).

In the meantime, as an individual starts to decrease their level of inside antagonism, consequent outer negative practices start to fall voluntarily; propensities, for example, exorbitant drinking, passionate gorging, and taking part in practices that, at last, prompt despondency and enduring.

With this being said, it would be an exaggeration to suggest that rehearsing yoga is the easy approach to, say, quit smoking, or to begin practicing routinely. On the off chance that that were the situation, yoga would be perfect! Yoga essentially says that, taking into account judicious and investigative circumstances and end results connections that have been watched for quite a long time, that when a man starts to feel great inside, they actually have a tendency to carry on in ways that improve and advance this sentiment inward wellbeing.

Accordingly, while smoking (for instance) is an enslavement and the body will respond to the decreasing of addictive fixings, for example, tar and tobacco (just to name two of numerous!), yoga will help the procedure. It will furnish the person with the quality and rationale that they require keeping in mind the end goal to find that smoking really doesn't make them feel great.

Truth be told, once they begin watching how they feel, they'll notice without uncertainty that as opposed to feeling great, smoking really makes one feel entirely awful inside; it's harder to inhale, for one.

Presently, this book isn't a hostile to smoking book, and on the off chance that you've battled with stopping smoking then kindly don't be outraged by any of this; there is no endeavor here at all to suggest that stopping smoking is simple, or simply an issue of determination.

Researchers have demonstrated that there is a genuine physical enslavement that is set up, close by an enthusiastic fixation that can be pretty much as solid; maybe considerably more grounded.
