Benefits of Yoga..

1. Yoga For Fitness .
As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar puts it, “Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” This is where yoga helps: postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation are a holistic fitness package. The benefits accrued by being a regular practitioner are numerous. Some very discernible ones are:
  • Improves health
  • Gives mental strength
  • Improves physical strength
  • Protection from injury
  • Detoxifies the body
2. Yoga for weight loss.
Desire of many ! Yoga helps here too. sun salutations  and kapalbhati help lose weight with yoga. Moreover, with regular practice of yoga, we tend to become more sensitive to the kind of food our body asks for and the time we take.
3. Yoga for stress relief. A few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily - in both the body and mind. Yoga postures, pranayama and meditation are effective techniques to release stress. You can experience the calming effects of yoga in the Sri Sri Yoga Level 2 program.
4. Yoga for inner peace . 
We all love to visit peaceful, serene spots, rich in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a mini-vacation to experience this any time of the day! Benefit from a small holiday every day with yoga and meditation.
5. Yoga to improve immunity. Our system is a seamless blend of the body, mind and spirit. An irregularity in the body affects the mind and similarly unpleasantness or restlessness in the mind can manifest as an ailment in the body. Yoga poses massage organs and strengthens muscles; breathing techniques and meditation release stress and improve immunity.
6. Yoga to live with greater awareness. The mind is constantly involved in activity – swinging from the past to the future – but never staying in the present. By simply being aware of this tendency of the mind, we can actually save ourselves from getting stressed or worked up and relax the mind. Yoga and pranayama help create that awerness and bring the mind back to the present moment, where it can stay happy and focused.
7. Yoga for better relationships.  Yoga can even help improov your relasonship   with your spouse, parents, friends or loved ones! A mind that is relaxed, happy and contented is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters. Yoga and meditation keeps the mind happy and peaceful; and watch how your relations with those around you blossom !
8. Yoga to increase energy. Do you feel completely drained by the end of the day? Shuttling through chores, and multitasking continuously can be quite exhausting. A few minutes of yoga everyday provides the much-needed fillip that boosts our energy and keeps us fresh. A 10-minute online-guided meditation is all you need to charge up your batteries, in the middle of a hectic day. 
9. Yoga for better flexibility & posture.  Yoga must become part of your daily routine to get a body that is strong, supple and flexible. Regular yoga practice, stretches and tones the body muscles and also makes them strong. It also helps improve your body posture when you stand, sit, sleep or walk.
10. Yoga to improve intuition. Yoga and meditation have the power to improve your intuitive ability so that you spontaneously realize what needs to be done, when and how, to yield positive results. It does work! You only need to experience it yourself.
Remember, yoga is a continuous process. So keep practicing! The deeper you go into your yoga practice, the more profound will be its benefits.

YOGA LIFE ( take your yoga of the mat into your life for more balance and clarity in everything from relationships and parenting to your home and garden)

Swami Satchidananda on yoga lifestyle:
“When you do something, do it with one hundred percent of the mind. Don’t do it half way. Whatever you do, do it with full concentration. That is Yoga.
It’s not that you are just going into a corner, sitting with the spine erect and then doing some japa or some breathing and that is Yoga. My Yoga is everything. All that you do is Yoga. When you start doing something, do only that — one hundred percent that. ‘Yogaha karmasu kaushalam,’ the Bhagavad Gita says. That means perfection in your every action is Yoga."

Yoga Lifestyle in the Modern World

Yoga lifestyle is a life of balance between "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the Light".
Yoga Lifestyle Personified
Once a young man wanted to know the meaning of life. He searched high and low; he took courses and workshops; but still he could not quite grasp it.
One day, he went to hear a Master speak. At the end of the lecture, the young man raised his hand and asked: "Could you please explain the meaning of life?"
The audience chuckled at the eternal question and started to get up to leave. The Master replied: "That's a very good question. I have the answer right here in my bag." He took out a small mirror, captured a ray of light with it, and directed the light to the young man's face.
"Can you all see how I am catching the light and directing it to his face?" he asked. "Yes." "The meaning of life," the Master explained, "is to gather Light and to take it where it's needed the most. Your purpose is to capture some Light and take it to some dark place in the world."
Yoga Lifestyle is about two actions"cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the Light".
The mirror is the mind and body. They have to be clean and pure to catch the light in the first place. Yoga lifestyle is therefore about purifying the mind and keeping the body healthy.
Yoga lifestyle includes certain principles and values, some of which refer to the 5 rules of social conduct, the YAMAS:

AHIMSA = non-violence
SATYA = truthfulness
ASTEYA = non-stealing
BRAHMACHARYA = faithfulness
APARIGRAHA = non-greed
