Yamini Sharma*, in International Journal of Physical Education & Sports Sciences | Physical Education, Health, Fitness & Sports


The Sanskrit term yuj is Yogasana which means the union of the individual consciousness or soul with the universal consciousness or spirit. Yoga is an Indian knowledge base spanning five thousand years. Many conceive of yoga as an advanced physical practice where individuals twist, spin, extend and respire, although it is only the most surface element of this profound discipline that awakens the boundless potentials of the mental and spirit of man. Yoga is a scientific knowledge that incorporates a way of life in its entirety. The old sages, who 2000 years ago thought on the human situation, offered four ways to realizing themselves Gyan-margin, the road to knowledge on which the seeker learns to discriminate between the true and the unreal, Karma-margin, the road of selfless service with no thought to profit Bhakti-margin, the route of love, of devotion. All these routes have the same objective Samadhi. Eight portions of Raja Yoga are split. Yogasana's practice is at the heart of the Raja Yoga system and balances these different methods and unites them.
