"Yoga is the Yoking of Body, Mind and Spirit through the Breath."

WHAT IS YOGA?

A MAP BACK TO YOUR TRUE SELF

Yoga is most commonly described as a combination of physical, mental & spiritual practices, which focuses on strength, flexibility and breath control, to improve overall wellbeing. But here, at Wakeup to Life we also like to describe Yoga as a Map - a map that shows you the way back to your true Self, liberating your body-mind organism from limiting conditioning & beliefs, one breath at a time.

 

WHAT DOES YOGA MEAN?

THE YOKING OF BODY, MIND & SPIRIT

The term yoga can be derived from either of two roots, yujir yoga ("to yoke") or yuj samādhau ("to concentrate") - it is commonly described as the union between body, mind & soul. The physical postures known as 'Asana' ("a position that is steady & comfortable"), are only one aspect of Yoga. More on this topic here on The Blog.

OFF THE MAT

RESHUFFLE YOUR IDEAS ABOUT YOGA

In this section, Wakeup to life invites you to forget everything you think you know about Yoga and to (re)discover this ancient wisdom of Humanity with brand new eyes. Here we have made a selection of Videos, Books & Blogs that we hope will help you see more clearly the underlying message behind Yoga and see it for what it is - a path of Liberation.

videos

There's so many Videos out there on the subject, and our selection is obviously purely subjective. We thought these little films were all quite well documented and each had a very unique way to present the principles and/or retrace the history of Yoga.
