Yoga in Daily Life in Australia
The not-for-profit, Australian Association of Yoga in Daily Life was established in Sydney in 1991 and grew organically throughout Australia. Yoga in Daily Life in Australia runs independently from international Yoga in Daily Life organisations. The practice of Yoga is a practice of science – science of body, mind, consciousness and soul. The origin of Yoga lies in India, but its teachings are 100% universal and can be applied to all aspects of our life, hence the term “Yoga in Daily Life”.
At the outset, the practices of Yoga in Daily Life offer prevention from many an illness and disease, by improving function of internal organs, whilst at the same time freeing the body from muscular tension and improving joint and spine mobility. The Yoga asanas cannot be compared with gymnastics or any body-building type exercise. Apart from the benefits mentioned above, Yoga asanas are highly effective in activating the energy centres of the human body, correcting energy imbalances and restoring harmonious function to the endocrine system. The Yoga practices also greatly support mental clarity and emotional balance, and when practised sincerely and regularly, Yoga can reveal the way to one’s own spirituality.
