atha yoganusasanam – this is traditional yoga
Traditional Yoga is given the term sastriyayoga as it takes its authority from the sastras or scriptures.
There is no wisdom like Samkhya, no power like Yoga.
Harmony is to live in accord with cosmic and natural law. Yoga helps us to live a healthy life of virtue, based on philosophical understanding, that leads to spiritual freedom. This is attained by cultivating Sattvaguna to create a condition where spiritual insight is possible. Harmony is the closest English equivalent to the word Sattva, hence the name Harmony Yoga.
Yoga arose from the Sanatana Dharma, the ancient eternal spiritual tradition of India, and originates from the revelations embodied in the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras, Samhkya Sutras and other authentic teachings.
Inspired by the legendary Yoga Master, healer and Sage Sri T Krishnamacharya, Harmony Yoga endeavor to share the knowledge of Yoga for the benefit of those seeking spiritual insight. Yoga is a personal journey leading towards the realisation of truth and the liberation of the Spirit.
Krishnamacharya was an exemplar of the living Vedic tradition who believed that Yoga is India’s greatest gift to the world. Due to the efforts and dedication of Krishnamacharya and other Masters, ancient and modern, Yoga is available to contemporary people.
