Yoga is a way of living. An ancient art that goes far beyond the practice of asanas – postures. It is a philosophy that goes back to the times before the religions existed more than 2,000 years ago. It is a philosophy that talks about the union. It talks about the union between all human beings and also about union with a greater energy that itself connects us all. Below is a summary of the philosophy of yoga and during your stay at our Shree Hari yoga school, we want to give you the best teachings of the philosophy of yoga that we have learned on our many life journeys and studying with the most respected teachers of yoga in the world.
Branches of Yoga the student may practice
The Yoga of wisdom (Jnâna-Yoga)
The Yoga of meditation (Râja-Yoga)
The Yoga of physical processes (Hatha-Yoga)
The Yoga of service (Karma-Yoga)
The Yoga of devotion (Bhakti-Yoga)
Through continuing dedication to the practice of yoga, the practitioner will begin to engage with the many other elements of yoga. Far beyond any workout routine, and begin to view their lives in a more proactive state and become less reactive.
They will find an inner peace that will radiate outwards and life will become one of greater joy and experience.
The exercise of Yoga begins on a conscious journey to discover what simply is. Who are you? And what you can become?

Yoga means “union”, and is derived from the Sanskrit root word yuj, meaning “to yoke” or “to unite.” Hence, Yoga reunites all opposites – mind & body, stillness & movement, masculine & feminine, active & passive energies – in order to bring peace & balance between them.

>>Every person has at some time had an intuitional glimpse of truth as a ” hunch”, an inner feeling of conviction that has proved to be right.
When this innate power of knowing is developed by calmness and meditation into the pure, unerring intuition of the soul, the devotee has access to the library of all wisdom contained right within himself in the subtle cerebrospinal seats of life and consciousness.
An advanced YOGI, who in samadhi meditation has withdrawn his consciousness and life force from the realm of the gross body and senses, enters that inner world of wisdom revelations.
He becomes aware of the seven sacred altars of Spirit in the spine and brain and receives all knowledge emanating from them.
Thus in tune with truth through intuitive soul perception, he knows invariably the correct guidance for all aspect of his spiritual and materially dutiful conduct.
