What are we going to learn & practice?
The subject of diet when approached from the lens of yogic wisdom is not only simple to understand but also easy to practice. Something as simple as keeping it plant based, avoiding overcooking and including all the colours can go a long way to keep us all healthy.
Studies have shown that as little as 20 minutes of regular exercise can add 4 more years to our lifespan. A simple brisk walking is enough to lighten our mood and activate our Prefrontal cortex-The seat of peace, compassion and joy.
A unique contribution of Paramhansa Yogananda- An India born great yogi- these exercises when done regularly have the potential to not only provide us complete physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, but also enhanced vitality and longevity. Moreover they hardly induce any wear and tear to the tissues.
Learn the innumerable ways in which our immunity can be boosted as suggested in Indian traditional system of healing called Ayurveda. Where simple home cuisine may provide a good number of natural herbs and spices that can boost our immunity.
Often we hardly pay attention to how we sit and walk, whether our posture is upright or not, whether our chest is uplifted or not. But it is important to know that spine is the main pathway through which energy flows to all organ systems and when it is well aligned then the energy flows freely and uninterruptedly.
Did we know that something as mundane as breathing can have detrimental effects on our physical and mental health. Research has shown that breathing diaphragmatically or through belly as we call it can reduce our anxiety levels by 40 percent. Often that is all we need to do to stay away from high blood pressure and feel calm and centred.
Pranayamas (Breath Practices)
Studies have shown that controlled breath practices regulate the secretion of nor-adrenaline- a neurotransmitter in our brain – which when released in optimal concentration keeps us motivated and energised throughout the day.
Yogananda said ‘Will’ is the switch that allows the flow of energy. He gave the adage-“Greater the will, Greater is the flow of energy.” Without keeping our will strong and steady we can’t even stay alive. Strengthening our will power is an essential component of our wellbeing.
Concentration is the key to success in any endeavour. When it comes to health and wellbeing concentration not only strengthens our will power, but also gives us the ability to seek solutions and transcend sufferings. Learn an ancient yoga technique to concentrate the mind.
Research in the field of neuroscience shows that even 12 minutes of meditation when done regularly can bring structural and functional changes in our brain for the better. It not only clarifies our thinking and decision making, but also activates the seat of peace, compassion and joy in our brains.
Dr Aditya and Dr Amit interviewing Dr Andrew Newberg on the subject of How Meditation changes brain. An excerpt.
Dr Amit Aggarwal introducing Dr Sat Bir Singh Khalsa at the Global Health Retreat- Recharge:Health 2021.
The timeless science of Hath-Yoga provides us a revolutionary approach to common physical and mental ailments. Modern research has now gathered enough evidence to suggest that not only yoga works but is also a cost effective tool in the hand of a health care professional to bring deeper healing.
Our brain reboots during the sleep. Refreshing sleep is an essential component of our vitality. On the other hand poor quality of sleep can seriously impact our health. During the program learn simple, yet effective tools that lead you into restful sleep.
Learn and discover the healing potential of sunlight by practicing specific Heliotropic Healing Techniques as suggested by Paramhansa Yogananda. Sunbaths are necessary to fill the tissues and pores with life-giving energy. As an ordinary bath washes away bacteria and dirt from the human body, so the rays in sunlight cleanse the body of unhealthy germs.
Research of a Nobel laureate finds that periodic fasting helps our cells to go into a house keeping mode, where they are able to recycle the waste efficiently, boost our immunity, optimise our sugar levels and keep the cancer cells under check.
Our gut, oral cavity and skin houses trillions of friendly bacteria species that are essential for a robust immunity. They provide us first line of defence against harmful invading pathogens by not allowing them to outgrow in number. There is a stunning link between your microbiome and your mood.
Our body is nothing but condensation of our mind. We are what we think. Scientific Healing Affirmations will help us to bring powerful healing by tapping the potential of positive thoughts.
Visualisation is a powerful tool to reprogram neuronal connections in our brain for not only learning a new skill quickly but also bring desired healing benefits on cellular level.
Dr Aditya and Dr Amit in a session with Dr Donatella on the subject of Healing potential of music.
We live in a vibratory world where everything in the universe is a manifestation of vibration including our own body and mind. Musical notes can powerfully alter the vibrational pattern of our cellular machinery.
Prayers & Chanting
It is better to say just one phrase, such as “O, Father, heal me,” or “I am well, for Thou art in me,” repeating it vigorously from loud voice to whisper, and lastly from a whisper to mental affirmation, until one feels what one is saying. The moment the phrase reaches the superconscious and the inner conviction, a volley of energy will shoot down and heal the body, mind, and soul, electrocuting physical bacteria and paralysing mental fears.
Mantras are a set of words with inherent vibratory power and when repeated mentally have the potential to bring deeper healing in body, mind and soul. The words, whether said aloud or mentally only, must be injected with superconscious faith and steadiness to accomplish a specific healing.
Super-relaxation with ‘Aum’
People often talk of relaxation, but few know how to achieve it. Some people know how to relax physically but not mentally. Super-relaxation is complete, voluntary withdrawal of consciousness and energy from the entire body. Complete mental relaxation consists in releasing the consciousness from the delusion of duality and resting the mind, identifying with one’s own true nature of unity in Spirit.
Healing the chakras
Chakras are seats of energy centres in our subtler energy spine. Your energy body, a living tree of life and light within you holds the keys to spiritual, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Never underestimate the power of these shining, spinning globes of power to change your life for the better.
Power of Forgiveness
Forgiveness is the sword of victory! When we forgive those who seek to hurt us, we rob them of their very power to do us harm. Better still, if they respond with love, they will unite their strength to ours, and so our strength becomes doubled. But forgiveness should not be given primarily for its effect on others, but rather for the freedom it affirms in our own hearts.
Eyes of the saints
They say-“Eyes are windows to the soul.” Eyes of saints emit great power and energy. Above all they are a medium for connecting to the source of an elevated consciousness that has a deep healing potential.
Service is ennobling. It is a way of offering our human littleness into the great Reality that is God. Service should not be given with the thought that one is serving people, merely. It should be given with an inward consciousness to the Lord Who resides in all creatures. When we serve others in this spirit, we find our own spirits becoming freed from egotism. Peace then fills us, in the realisation that there isn’t anyone with whom we need compete. What joy, to think that we belong to God!
Smiles , Laughter & Joy
There is no better reviving tonic than smiles. There is no better ornament than a genuine smile. There is no beauty greater than the smile of peace and wisdom glowing on your face. A good sense of humour is an effective means of keeping a sense of perspective through the trials and difficulties of life.
