Yoga in Kerala

The practice of Yoga, or unification, re-establishes the connection between the individual and the universal field of pure consciousness. Yoga removes the attachment to external objects and false knowledge and corrects psychological trauma by merging the mind with the real, the virtuous, and the wellspring of harmony. It really is true. Since the mind plays such an important role in creating health, Yoga plays a vital role in Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda and MeditationYoga and Ayurveda are as old as our tradition. Both go hand in hand for upliftment of thyself, with the sword of understanding of thyself thou shaft as under in thy heart every doubt arising from ignorance and thou shaft achieve thy performance in yoga. Desires are delusions. Consciousness follows our desires. Where your treasure is there will your heart be also. The correlation of Ayurveda and Yoga, on the basis of fundamental level is shown with the following features:

Authenticity of both sciences is accepted by each other. The various acts related with daily and seasonal routine are included in the second fold of Yoga i.e. Niyama (Ethical practices). The subject related with the food habits are included under the first and second fold i.e. Yama and Niyama (Ethical practices). The subject related with the non-suppression of 13 natural calls are also included in Niyama (Bahya Saucha). This purification is previous to the performance of the actual motions. These calls are suggestive for necessary activity and hence are included under the yogic fold Yama (Saucha). Suppression of various mental properties such as affection, anger etc. is included in the second fold of yogic science i.e. Niyama. Suppressive and non-suppressive acts - such as Vyayam, Nasya etc. are related with regulation of body, mind and speech and hence are included in the first fold of yoga i.e. Yama especially Ahimsa, Satya, Asteya, Brahmacharya and Aparigraha. “Sadavritta” described in Ayurveda is related with the behavior and moral conduct and hence is closely related with Yoga science. All these acts and behaviors could be included under the various Yogic folds especially under first and second fold. “Sadavritta” is beneficial through the regulations of senses and throughout the purification of mind, it is directly related with the yoga. 3Physiological aspects of Rashi-Purusha i.e. 24 elements of Ayurveda are agreed in Yoga science.

Meditation and Yoga
Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation means 'to join together or to yoke' . It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns . The observer(one who is doing meditation) realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one.

Many years ago meditation was considered something just not meant for modern people, but now it has become very popular with all types of people. Published scientific and medical evidence has proved its benefits, but it still needs to be much understood.

Traditionally, the classical yoga texts, describe that to attain true states of meditation one must go through several stages. After the necessary preparation of personal and social code, physical position, breath control, and relaxation come the more advanced stages of concentration, contemplation, and then ultimately absorption. But that does not mean that one must perfect any one stage before moving onto the next. The Integral yoga approach is simultaneous application of a little of all stages together. Ayurveda Meditation
Commonly today, people can mean any one of these stages when they refer to the term meditation. Some schools only teach concentration techniques, some relaxation, and others teach free form contemplative activities like just sitting and awaiting absorption. Some call it meditation without giving credence to yoga for fear of being branded 'eastern'. But yoga is not something eastern or western as it is universal in its approach and application.

With regular practice of a balanced series of techniques, the energy of the body and mind can be liberated and the quality of consciousness can be expanded. This is not a subjective claim but is now being investigated by the scientists and being shown by an empirical fact.

Ayurveda with Meditation
Meditation gives the perfect coordination for the mind and the body. Also, a part of the Ayurvedic treatment, Kerala practitioners once again proves why they are considered the best. Meditation is a mind-body therapy and the instructor devices the therapy in such a way that it can be unified and fused into the daily life experiences. Ayurveda, Yoga and Meditation
At the end we can formally say that all three are branches of same tree ,interlinked with one another. All three are meant for relasing extra stress on human beings existing in commercial world of today.
