“If a man does not know to which port he is sailing, no wind is favourable to him.” Seneca
Finding our own authentic path in life is crucial. We need to know where we are going and also the means by which we can get there.
Indian philosophy and spirituality respects the individual need to find our way according to our own temperament, beliefs and life situation. Hence there are a range of possibilities within the Yoga tradition, although a map is given for our journey. Yoga is neither dogmatic, nor a completely free thinking philosophy. It offers a procedure for transformation leading to a restoration of our innate integrity. Ayurveda, sharing the same roots as Yoga, presents a way of maintaining optimum health based on our own unique constitution.
The orientation model shared by these two sciences allows practice to be adapted to suit different individual needs based on interest, age and the various changes and challenges of life.
This model is briefly:
This approach to practice is needed to reduce suffering, support recovery and improve the quality of life.
In this approach to practice we attempt to maintain good health and promote longevity.
This approach to practice takes us to new levels of health improving the function of body, breath and mind. Improved structural integrity and energy levels are some of the benefits.
This approach is one aiming at spiritual realisation and emphasises meditation as a practice towards this end.Yoga is an AtmaVidya, a practical procedure leading ultimately to the knowledge (vidya) of our spiritual nature (atma).
