RAJA DHIRAJA YOGA ESSENTIALS
1. Origin of Raja Dhiraja Yoga
The techniques of yoga were systematized by Shiva 7000 years ago. Although Shiva is nowadays regarded as a “God” of Hinduism, he did actually live as a great master at that time. Over time the original systematization of yoga was distorted, some aspects were misunderstood and lost. About 2100 years ago, Patanjali reclassified the techniques into what he called Ashtanga (“eight-limbed”) yoga.
More advanced students are introduced to a yogic lifestyle, a vegetarian sentient diet, and meditation techniques
3. Benefits of Asanas (as practiced in Raja dhiraja Yoga)
Asana means posture and balance the hormone secretion from the endocrine gland, balance the chakras, increase the flexibility of the body, improve respiration, improve blood and lymph circulation, massage the internal organs, relax the nerves and muscles, cure diseases, restore psychic and emotional well-being
- effect on the glands, chakras, and propensities
- when glandular functions are well balanced this contributes to mental balance
- by strengthening the psychic centers the asana help control the mental propensities, tendencies (vrttis), controlled by these centers. There are 50 propensities and are distributed in the 6 lower chakras
The deep relaxation – Shavasana – at the end of a yoga session and applied in between certain yoga postures (asanas) provide a chance for the body to assimilate the increased energy gained from the practice
Kumbhaka – breath retention is most often known in the practice of Pranayama. Relate to ancient, traditional, and authentic yoga techniques. In Raja dhiraja yoga as we hold our breath in certain asanas, we absorb the prana – the life force energy. Is a powerful tool to which you always have access, but retention should only be practiced after 4/5 months (or even later on) of REGULAR PRANAYAMA! Kumbhaka strengthens the diaphragm, increasing lung capacity, purifies the entire respiratory system, massages the glands. Glands affect our Emotions – secretion of the gland affects chakras and our propensities.
