The Ancient Tradition of Yoga
In Ancient India, the practice of physical yoga was primarily seen as a preparation for meditation. A healthy body and a straight spine were known to support the practice of meditation. Being fit and healthy was not the final goal – it was re-establishing control of the mind, which was achieved through daily meditation practice.
If we control our mind it is our greatest friend, if our mind controls us it is our greatest enemy. These practices have been passed on from teachers to students through oral tradition and physical practice with passion and humility.Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the West in the 20th Century.
The Modern Concept of Yoga
When people think about yoga today, an image comes to mind of people practicing various stretching postures. Bhakti Marga UK yoga teachers can help you to realize there is much more behind this image of a so-called fitness regime.

Also, there are many forms of yoga therapy, which can help many illnesses such as asthma, hormonal balance, and cancer support. Specific yoga postures help to eliminate the illness.

OM Chanting – A Different Approach To Yoga
OM Chanting is another Yoga for Beginners group practice where participants sit in a pre-defined arrangement for 45 minutes and chant OM continuously. OM is considered to be the primordial sound of creation and once you participate in a circle, it continues to resonate in participants’ bodies even after the circle, allowing them to share the good vibrations wherever they go.
Due to a special blessing, OM Chanting generates a vibrational frequency that releases negativity, transforms it and showers participants with positive energy. The vibration waves created by the OM Chanting circle can spread in a circle of 2 Km radius and helps in purifying the environment from all the negativity.
