The Tradition of the Himalayan Masters
The teachings handed down from Swami Rama of the Himalayas lead to a practice of awareness, of attention to the body and the breath, leading to understanding the mental fluctuations according to the Pranavidja method.
The concentrated mind (Dharana), learns to distinguish, to select what is useful to abandon oneself in presence. During the Asanas (positions), the whole person reaches calm and relaxes the posture effort.
Breathing ( Pranayama ) is the point of union between mind and body. Breathing practices aim at fluidity, at depth, becoming valuable tools for improving the condition of the nervous system (excellent for menopause), and the agitated mind (such as anxiety).
This is the peculiarity of the Tradition of the Himalayan Masters , where the mind educates the body and at the same time, with bodily practice, the mental presence focuses on the “here and now”.
Hatha Yoga is also essential to prepare for Meditation: The essay Patanjalj (the one who codified Yoga handed down until then orally), reports eight steps that constitute the Raja Yoga . To the former, one finds the practice of Asanas and Pranayama up to the highest levels like Meditation (Dhyana), a fundamental practice towards “Supreme Joy”: the “Samadhy”, the purpose of Raja Yoga.
Practicing Yoga it is therefore possible to obtain benefits on the nervous, muscular, bone, endocrine, respiratory, digestive and circulatory systems.
You get better management of emotions, (which often manifest themselves with recurring pains and disorders), self-esteem, panic attacks, poor vitality and depression.
