CHENNAI: Although today, Yoga is mostly seen as a practise of asanas to become fit and healthy, traditionally, yoga was seen as a way of life, a guide to lead a virtuous life and a tool to maintain a holistic lifestyle.
Patanjali Sutra has elucidated the eight limbs of yoga for the common man to follow. He realised the Yogic goal: self-realisation or union with the higher self. Yama (social ethics) and Niyama (personal ethics) are the first two primary goals after which comes Asana, and then Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. Similarly, at least 10% of 700 verses of Bhagavad Gita talk about the various nuances of Yoga. As Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita ‘Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam’, meaning acting and communicating skillfully and responsibly, is also Yoga.
This Yoga Day, let us make an effort to become more aware of the impact our thoughts, actions and words have on the world at large. Let us strive to be a Yogi who takes responsibility of protecting Mother Nature and her divine creation — a Yogi who lives in harmony with nature.
Though it is overwhelming to see the rise in the number of yogis and yoga studios, it is unfortunate to see an increase in the supply of plastic yoga mats. That’s why at JURU Yoga, is committed to the cause of making eco-friendly and good quality yoga mats and props. It’s not expensive and it can last for a long time. The sweatier you get, the gripper the mat gets, and there is no flaking! The surface is warm under foot and insulates heat and cold. It repels small vermin and insects too, and is very easy to clean and maintain.
Yoga is all about balancing your body and synchronising body, mind, and soul. All-natural JURU mats help form a better friction with the surface and helps you perform any position with peace. We recommend the use of props such as knee pillows and blankets for cushioning knees in deep stretches and thus also provide a unique range of eco-friendly yoga props and accessories that will help you enhance your practice on our mats.
