Yoga focuses on the mind, body and soul. From basic health to dealing with chronic ailments, it is truly the way towards achieving ‘holistic healing.’ For those who fall frequently ill, feel lethargic and complain of indigestion or body aches most of the time, Yoga can help restore the balance. In cases where diseases are at an advanced stage and conventional medicine is not able to help or not yielding the required results, Yoga can play a role in making the patient more at peace and in some cases, assist in the recovery as well. These days one can opt for learning Yoga at many institutions, some of them could well be close to your home itself considering the way they have proliferated in recent years. The problem is that there is no way of distinguishing the truly learned and genuine teachers from the ‘fly by night’ quacks who understand how to market Yoga better than imparting its knowledge in a correct manner. The best way to make a choice is to ask friends and relatives who have trained at an institute themselves. There are several levels offered, from the basic one for beginners to advanced ones for those who want to explore Yoga further. You can even get personalised training sessions at home to start off in case it feels awkward to be in a class with other people or it is too far to visit one. The important thing is that one should take the opportunity to deepen the understanding of the fundamental and advanced concepts of Yoga through an immersion into Yoga’s classical and modern forms.
