Yoga is known to be one of the oldest physical disciplines in the world. Today the purpose and importance of yoga is understood across the globe and more people are drawn by its practice everyday. In some cases the frenzy surrounding it has caused a dilution of its true essence, giving many the impression that it is a purely physical discipline. But it is so much more. It includes not just mental but spiritual practice and is more a Philosophy than a practice. This is what sets it apart from other physical disciplines. The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from ancient Sanskrit to imply ‘Concentration’, so a person who has a high level of knowledge and commitment towards the Philosophy of Yoga is called a ‘Yogi’. The forms of Yoga that the experts at Jivan practice, have been passed down and carefully curated for centuries in monasteries and other centers in the Indian subcontinent. Our approach to the Philosophy of Yoga is of reverence. This is why we want to help clients embrace it in a holistic manner and make it part of their spiritual engagement and lifestyle.
Under a qualified instructor, Yoga is accepted as the most natural and least invasive way of healing a range of health issues - both physiological and psychological.
