To begin, Yoga is one of the six fundamental systems of Indian thought collectively known as Darshana; the other five darshana are Nyaya, Vaisesika, Samkhya, Mimamsa, and Vedanta. The word darshana is derived from Sanskrit root DRS, which translates as “to see.” Darshana therefore means “sight,””view,” or even “a certain way of seeing.” In fact all the great texts introduce us to ways of seeing that create opportunities for us to recognise ourselves better. As one the six darshanas, yoga has it’s origin in Vedas, the oldest record of Indian culture. It was systematised as a special darshana by great Indian sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra. One meaning of the word yoga is “to tie the strands of the mind together.” It means directing our thoughts toward the yoga session before we take on an actual practice. Once those strands come together to form an intention, we are ready to begin the physical work. Another aspect of yoga has to do with our actions. Yoga therefore also means acting in such a way that all of our attention is directed toward the activity in which we are currently engaged.

When we begin studying the yoga-whether by way of asana, pranayama, meditation, or studying the Yoga Sutra-the way which we learn is the same. The more we progress, the more we become aware of the HOLISTIC nature of our BEING, realising that we are made of BODY, BREATH, MIND, and MORE!

Yogi is my second family where I’ve learned and then worked for a long time. Becoming a yoga trainer here is the second best decision I have made, the first one is to marry John, my beloved husband. At Yogi, I find my self and the way to be close friend with her.
