Yoga Therapy

 

Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga (Hasya Yoga) is a physically oriented technique that uses a blend of playful, empowering and otherwise "tension-releasing" simple laughter exercises - cominining gentle yoga-breathing and stretching exercise with laughter.

A typical Laughter Yoga session lasts about 40 to 60 minutes. The session may be adapted to suit the needs, abilities and motivations of the group participating.

Laughter Yoga method is the brainchild of Dr. Madan Kataria, a family physician from Mumbai, India who started the first laughter club in 1995. He has been the catalyst for the creation of over 6,000 Laughter Clubs in 65 countries.

Meditation

Meditation is one of the most natural and yet profoundly rewarding of all human activities. Practised on a daily basis it produces astonishing results on all levels of being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Meditation is not a practice to achieve blank space or blank thought by blocking, suppressing and neglecting our concerns. It is the feeling of happiness, fulfilment, contentment and peace within when we close our eyes and integrate our body, mind and spirit. Meditation is - directing your consciousness inward - to find the source of all life's manifestations.

At Ananda Sanga, we teach beginners and more advanced meditation courses. The meditation teachings are based on those of Paramahansa Yogananda. They emphasise that every soul must seek inward upliftment and Self-Realization. Contact us for more information.

Ayurveda - The Science of Life

What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a system of healing which evolved on the Indian subcontinent some 5000 years ago. It was established by the same great ancient sages who produced India's original systems of meditation, yoga and astrology. Ayurveda has both a spiritual and a practical basis, and according to this system of health care, we need balance and harmony in all three aspects of our lives, body, mind and spirit.

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which derives its meaning from two roots - Ayur meaning life or daily living and Veda meaning knowledge or science. Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas, the world's oldest extant literature. It emphasis that all beings come out of nature, that we are an integral part of a whole universe and therefore have a responsibility to our source. We are a microcosm, of the universal macrocosm. Therefore we need to live in ways that respect and honour our bodies and our environment to maintain health and well-being. We offer a variety of Ayurveda courses & trainings.
