Life is beautiful, divine and a constant celebration. Yoga, for our life, has been a potent power for the spiritual regeneration of people right from the days of yore. As a complete scientific guide, Yoga is designed for all who seek a full, happy and purposeful life. The discipline and training of Yoga embraces the body, the mind and the spirit. The perfection of body helps in the perfection of mind, mental efficiency is used to attain higher spiritual perfection, and collectively the three planes of perfection connote Happiness or Bliss. Indian sages first discovered Yoga in the Rigveda over 5000 years ago.
The system of Yoga was developed and passed down primarily through oral teachings from Guru to disciple in an unbroken tradition. The practice of Tantra, Mantra and Yoga bestows one the bounties of life on earth fulfilling their wishes and attunes to the spiritual dynamic energy unfolding one`s hidden potential.
