Health. Balance. Understanding. These are some of the key fundamentals to understanding and living a good life. Yoga has been a calling for me. I heeded the call and traveled to India to further my knowledge. While there I attended classes and it has inspired me to one day open my own yoga studio. The studio will focus on teaching those who wish to find more balance in life and health. Yoga is more than just a workout. It truly is a way in which one can interact and live life with. I have learned much through the past several years and I want nothing more than to teach others the concepts and lessons that have inspired me. I hope that one day we can cross paths and share our knowledge and experiences in order to grow and become better human beings. Please join me on my journey for building Onemoreyogi. I cannot think of a better name because it represents motivation and the will to accept that there will always be one more thing around the corner to excel towards.
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west, following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the Western world. This form of yoga is often called Hatha yoga. Yoga physiology described humans as existing of three bodies (physical, subtle and causal) and five sheets (food sheet, prana-breath, mind sheet, intellect, and bliss) which cover the atman, and energy flowing through energy channels and concentrated in chakras. Many studies have tried to determine the effectiveness of yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer, schizophrenia, asthma, and heart disease.
Chakras are energy points or knots in the subtle body. They are located at the physical counterparts of the major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves. Chakras are part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such are the meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy channels, called nadiis. Nadiis are channels in the subtle body through which the life force (prana), or vital energy moves. Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. There are many chakras in the subtle human body according to the tantric texts, but there are 7 chakras that are considered to be the most important ones.
