“Tam Yogamiti Sthiramindriyaa Dharanam”(Kattopanishad)
Yoga is a state in which all our indriyas are beheld steadily that is a state of mastery over senses and mind.
In Yoga Vasishta the essence of yoga is beautifully portrayed:
“Manaha Prashamana Upaya Yoga Ithyabhidheeyate”
Yoga is a useful skill to calm down the mind, stop negative thinking and learn the necessary techniques to operate and act at the right place at the right time to gain complete mastery over mind.
Vapuhu Krushatvam Vadena Prasannata Nadasphutatwam Nayena Sunirmale
Arogata Bindujtoagnideepanam Nadivishudhihruttasidhwilakshanam. (Hattayogapradeepika)
A RAAS Devigarh yoga retreat will help to you tune into your infinite self, that place where you can raise yourself up through your own self-esteem and will power. When the body becomes lean and light, the face glows with delight, the eyes are pure, the mind and complexion are clear and the body healthy – at this stage one begins to understand that the Nadis are purified and a mastery of Hatha yoga is approaching.
