The Meaning and Purpose of Yoga
Yoga means a state or condition, a technique, auspiciousness and union. Patanjali defined yoga as the cessation of the modifications of the mind. The practice of yoga leads to mental stability, equanimity, concentration, meditation, good health, devotion, self-transformation and liberation.
It is useful for both the wordily people seeking mental peace and ascetics seeking liberation. Yoga helps you to become a better person, human being and devotee.
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga.
