Director’s Message

Yoga is essentially spiritual. It dignifies the essential unity that is the basis of life. It embraces  the full spectrum of reality, from the most spiritual to the most material. The Philosophy of Yoga is practical and applicable in our day-to-day living. The practice of Yoga is a process of self – discovery. It is an awakening of long deep rooted memories of whom and what we really are! Yoga, as union, implies perfect harmony of body and mind. It implies the harmonious integration of personality. The most common benefit of Yoga practice is the sense of well being at all levels of our existence. Yoga understands health and well-being as a dynamic continuum of human nature and not a mere ‘state’ to be attained and maintained. The lowest point on the continuum with the lowest speed of vibration is that of death whereas the highest point with the highest vibration is that of immortality; in between these two extremes lays the states of normal health and disease. Yoga involves a holistic approach to healing and wellbeing and integrates healing with the culture, diet, environment and tradition.

Yoga practices have shown to reduce physiological signs of mental stress, both in normal persons and in those with abnormally high levels of stress. Therefore it has got world-wide acceptance as an important system of health care. Yogasanas have become a synonym for the Yoga in the modern times. All over the world, many sadhaks practice only Yogasanas in the name of Yoga. Though, they considered as exercise for physical fitness in nature but they are actually psycho-physical in nature, having effect on both body and mind. Yogasanas alone can bring about many changes in the mind-body complex of a person. Many of the Yoga professionals who have got training in basic aspects of Yoga are looking towards having more intensive knowledge on different aspects of Yoga, especially Yogasanas and they find no place for the same except one or two Yoga Institutes in the country.


About Yoga Courses

Vision & Mission

Health, Happiness & Harmony for all through Yoga

Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. Yoga is 5,000-year-old system purely originated in India, which aims to transform both body and mind and is very much relevant even today. Yoga is a comprehensive methodology evolved by the ancient seers, which embodies physical, psychological, moral and spiritual dimensions of human life. Yoga is an advanced science with the strength of rigorous theoretical frame work supported by scientifically proved practical techniques. Yoga is a scientific system that fosters healthy development of the physique and balanced development of the psyche. Yoga helps in promoting positive health, prevention of stress related health problems and rehabilitation. It also gives an integral approach to common ailments. Yoga also sharpens ones mental faculties improving attention and concentration. Its miraculous benefits for health, concentration, will power, stress management, personality development, human values, interpersonal relations and spiritual evolution are being highly appreciated now all sections of the society all over the world In this regard, we should like to bring to your kind notice that on 11th Dec 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared 21st June as the International Yoga Day. It indicates the global recognition and importance of Yoga.

There is huge demand for qualified yoga Teachers/Instructors. Due to a dearth of experienced and professionally qualified yoga teachers, there is a necessity for Professional Training Institutes and Courses. Increasing Need for Qualified Yoga Teachers: Due to recent advances in Science and Technology, the lifestyles of the modern people have drastically changed to such an alarming extent that, this very lifestyle being adopted is leading to innumerable health problems, mental stresses and strains, family problems and social tensions and pressures. We are happy to note that, State Council of Educational Research & Training, UGC, AICTE, and other such National bodies have made Yoga training mandatory in higher educational institutions. Today yoga is being accepted as a system of Complimentary Alternative Medicine and as a Lifestyle Management Program. As a result, there is lot of demand in the society to learn yoga.

This demand has further increased due to the recent awareness created due to the celebration of the first International Day of Yoga, 2015. Over a period the secret and sacred knowledge of Yoga has come down to the use of a common man and today Yoga has become a house-hold name. The practices prescribed in the Yoga system are having immense potentiality in health promotion, disease prevention and management. The physiological effects and the health benefits of yoga on different systems of the body and in different disease conditions is very well documented now. The holistic approach of Yoga brings harmony in all walks of life and also influences our day-to-day living. It brings about suitable changes in the behavioral pattern and attitude of a person thereby helps to improve the interpersonal relationship at home and also in the society. Today, yoga has become popular not only because of its strengths in prevention and management of many lifestyle related disorders including physiological and psychosomatic disorders. The present day is characterized by scientific development and technological advancement aimed at making life comfortable.

However, faulty life style, pollution, modern work culture have made the life miserable and created several health problems of all dimensions of life (physical, mental, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual). There is a great need of a system that could help to promote well being at all levels. With this yoga has gradually gained its importance and popularized as well. With the growing demand for the systems of yoga world-wide, there is a demand for the proper training of the different techniques/ practices of yoga on traditional/ classical way. To fulfill this objective the MGS University, Bikaner has proposed to start courses in yoga under CSED on different popular techniques of yoga.
