Yoga Centers, Teacher Training & Practitioners
According to the 2nd century sanscrit scholar Patanjali, Yoga is where modifications and fluctuations in consciousness cease. In this state the practitioner of Yoga (or Yogi) accesses and abides in his or her own highest consciousness and purest essence.The Yogi then links and unites with The One Universal Spirit.
At the practical level and included in the contemporary definitions of Yoga are the actual physiological/mental techniques themselves. These techniques are known as Hatha Yoga and include numerous body movements, postures, breathing exercises, the lifting and manipulating of internal organs, the locking of body orifices and cleansing techniques. In some of the practices described, the Yogi gains voluntary control of the involuntary systems, thereby gaining mastery over body and mind in order to attain that state of universal consciousness called Yoga.
