A significant part of our population works in offices. Their main activity is
sitting at a desk for long hours and typing away, sometimes with a phone
tucked under their ear! Add daily stress to this 'active' work environment
and you have a perfect mix of factors leading to health problems.
Classic Hatha Yoga (60 minutes)
The session by Mystique Moksha is specially
designed to fit in with requirements of the
corporate environment. We work more on
correction and alignment of the body instead of a vigorous yoga session. We ensure balancing
and focus related postures (Asana) which bring
mental equilibrium and improve concentration.
Asanas use the limbs of body as weights for the
muscles, therefore weights and equipment are not
required. The Yoga Asanas used in this session help bring
steadiness, health and lightness in the limbs. With
regular practice, one develops agility, balance,
endurance and great vitality. Yoga practices have
evolved over the centuries to exercise every
muscle, nerve and gland in the body. They are not
mere postures, but carefully designed exercises
using only your body.
Desktop Yoga (30 minutes)
When there is shortage of space and changing into
exercise gear seems a luxury, Dektop Yoga by
Mystique Moksha is what you need. Desktop Yoga
is a specially selected set of practices that can be
performed in normal workwear.
These practices help slow down anxiety, hypertension,
panic, depression and also help generate a responsive
mechanism in place of a reactive one. Breathing
techniques improve creative thinking and rational
approach to problems at workplace. Loosening of
subtle joints releases toxins thereby energising the
body and relax the mind.
Pranayama Session (30 minutes)
Prana means life force (noted particularly as the energy), and Yama
can be translated as to restrain or control the prana, implying a set of
breathing techniques where the breath is intentionally altered in
order to produce specific results. Pranayama brings blalance in
sympathetic and parasympathetic system of our body and influence
the flow of prana in the Nadis (energy channels) of the Pranamaya
Kosha (energy body). These yoga practices influence the flow of
prana in the nadis, purifying, regulating and activating them thereby
inducing physical and mental stability. Relaxation resulting from the
slowing down the breath is the key. The regular practice evokes
latent capabilities and clarity of thought.
Yoga is a comprehensive and holistic approach to health, happiness, and wellbeing. But unless practiced by a real master who has the education, experience and knowledge, you are likely to get only superficial benefits of Yoga. The truth is, there is much more to Yoga than just
Yoga believes that there are indeed five bodies, five layers (sheaths) of self or being, that must be addressed for overall healing to take place. They are:
Physical Body (Anna-maya Kosha)
Energy Body (Prana-maya Maya Kosha)
Mental Body (Mano-maya Kosha)
Wisdom Body (Vijnana-maya Kosha)
Bliss Body (Anand-maya Kosha)
The practice and philosophical application of yoga by a teacher into our everyday life help bring all the sheaths—body, breath, mind, wisdom, and spirit—into harmony, promoting overall health and bringing you closer to being physically and spiritually healthy.
