Vandana addressing a group of people at Axelsons, Stockholm, Sweden




”The whole of Yoga is nothing but centering: moving towards the center, getting rooted there, abiding there. From there the whole perspective changes. When you look from the center, by and by conflict ceases. By and by you relax." Osho .



What is Yoga?

Sage Patanjali has written the ancient Indian heritage of Yoga through his treatise 'Yoga Sutras', which is an encompassing study of the subject which consists of 196 sutras(aphorisms). The total 196 Sutras are divided in 4 chapters.

Patanjali, defines yoga as "chitta vritti nirodha". Chitta is the consciousness which includes the mind, the intellect and the ego. Yoga is a method of silencing the vibrations(vritti) of the chitta.

  4. Pranayama (Yogic Breathing)

  6. Dharana (Concentration on Object)
  7. Dhyana (Meditation)
  8. Samadhi (Salvation)
