• ‘WORD FOR INTROSPECTION’


    Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
    Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
    And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
    the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
    he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
    - Dalai Lama


    About Yoga

    When we say “yoga,” for most people it probably means twisting the body into tough postures. That’s not what yoga is about. Among the Yoga Sutras, which form the foundation of today’s yoga, only one sutra is dedicated to asanas. All Maharishi Patanjali said was “Sthiramsukhamasanam” – a posture which is comfortable and firm, that is your asana. Asanas are a very preparatory step, but unfortunately they are being propagated as the whole of yoga.


    Yoga means to be in perfect tune. Your body, mind and spirit and the existence are in absolute harmony. When you fine-tune yourself to a point where everything functions so beautifully within you, the best of your abilities will naturally flow out of you.y


    Though the benefits of yoga are well-known, the fundamental purpose of yoga is often overlooked by many modern practitioners. Years of Yoga practise realized us that far beyond merely bending the body, the science of yoga provides the ultimate tool for enhancing human capabilities and functioning at the highest peak of body and mind.ak


    Yoga is a whole technology as to how to use our inner energies for higher possibilities. Yoga is a tool to find ultimate expression to life. Every human being must explore and know this. Otherwise, life becomes very limited and accidental. But once you start activating your inner energies, your capabilities happen in a different sphere altogether.


    So we at Antyodaya Yoga aim to help people find their own individuality through deepening their Yoga Practise which brings absolute balance between your body , mind & soul.

The famous dialogue, Yoga Yajnavalkya, (found in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad), between Sage Yajnavalkya and the learned Brahmvadin Gargi mentions asanas, numerous breathing exercises for cleansing the body and meditation. Gargi has also spoken about Yogasanas in Chandogya Upanishad.
Yoga as a concept slowly emerged and has an elaborate mention in Bhagavad Gita and in Shanti Parva of Mahabharata.

There are more than 20 Upanishads and Yoga Vasishtha, which predate Mahabharata and Bhagavad Gita, where Yoga is stated to be the union of mind with the Supreme Consciousness.

Yoga is discussed in the ancient foundational Sutra of Hindu philosophy and is perhaps most elaborately mentioned in Patanjali Yogasutra. Patanjali defines yoga in his second sutra as:
योग: चित्त-वृत्ति निरोध: (yogaḥ citta-vṛtti-nirodhaḥ)
-Yoga Sutras 1.2

Patanjali’s writing also became the basis for Ashtanga Yoga.

Exclusive style of yoga by Antyodaya

Traditional Yoga

It is a classical and holistic approach to hath yoga that tones and stretches the whole body. It is a complete healing system designed to help the body maintain a natural healthy state.

Power Yoga

Power yoga is an active, vigorous, fitness-based approach to yoga practise. Such classes involve minimal amount of chanting and meditation. It doesn’t follow any set or series of postures. These classes help in building the strength, endurance and promotes weight loss.

Hath Yoga

It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas, pranayama which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha Yoga classes are gentle, slow and great for beginners’ students who prefer a more relaxed style where they hold poses longer.

Pre-natal Yoga

Prenatal yoga helps soon-to-be moms connect with the baby and her own body through breathing and relaxation techniques. Prenatal yoga helps would be mothers for a more natural, effective approach to childbirth. Mothers get enrolled to increase the chances of pregnancy by lowering stress levels, allowing the energy centred in the pelvis to flow freely, and opening up and softening the pelvic organs.

Post-natal Yoga

Once a woman becomes a mother, everything changes—her body, her obligations, her priorities. Postnatal yoga is a style of yoga that addresses the physical, mental and emotional challenges of being a new mother, as well as the aftermath of pregnancy. Yoga poses focus on helping new mothers tone their body and regain their figure, relieve stress and even bond with their new-born.

Alignment Yoga

Alignment is the word we use in yoga when we talk about the ideal way that a pose should be done. Alignment yoga is not just about making the pose look pretty. The correct alignment offers the safest way to do the posture. This involves stacking the bones for optimal stability and to minimize wear and tear on the joints. Alignment yoga cultivates the awareness to feel the pose in your body, to feel when you could use some help, and to allow yourself to accept that help.

Restorative Yoga

A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.

Insight Yoga

This style of yoga is also called as blind folded yoga. The foundation of Insight Yoga is to combine both active and passive yoga postures with breath work, meditation, mindfulness and self-analysis to attain peace, tranquillity and harmony with the self and the universe. The core teachings are based on developing the physical and subtle body, the mind, the heart and on understanding relationships.

Props Yoga

It is a supportive style of yoga used while performing an asana. Using a yoga prop is a great way to practice poses that a beginner may find difficult to perform or for those with less flexibility and/or balance. A yoga prop also helps one remain in a pose for a longer length of time.
