What is Ghosh Yoga
Ghosh Yoga facilitates overall health by using the principles of physical alignment, stillness, and designated postures designed to exercise all parts of the body. These include your muscles, bones, joints, organs, digestion, circulation, endocrine system and nervous system. This yoga also uses breathing exercises and meditation to reduce stress and anxiety, beginning the path of spirituality.
In Eastern Societies most teachers would create a particular set of exercises, asanas (postures) and meditations which were adapted for each individual’s needs. Then in the 1970s Bikram Choudhury introduced this lineage to Western Society with great success. Bikram Yoga and Ghosh Yoga do share key elements, such as the postures and the therapeutic intent. However there are some fundamental differences that separate the two systems. The core purpose of Ghosh Yoga is to focus on the needs of the individual while Bikram Yoga prescribed a set of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises in the famously heated room as a tonic suitable for every-body.
As scientists continue to study the rise in various health complications across Western cultures, their research often connects back to our daily patterns. Some aliments are intrinsically lined to the sedentary, technologically driven lifestyles that are prevalent in our societies. Combining a regular ‘set sequence’ practice with a comprehensive lineage that tailors to the individual needs, like that of Ghosh Yoga, has been shown to help combat aspects of these ailments by allowing people to develop in their physical, mental and emotional practices.
