As you may already know there is a wide array of yoga schools, practices, and goals engrained in the Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism cultures – some of the most well-known are types of yoga are Hatha and Raja yoga.
It’s important to recognize the five general principal meanings behind the widely practiced exercise: it is a disciplined method for attaining a goal, incorporates techniques of controlling the body and the mind, stands as a name of one of the schools or systems within well-known philosophies, represents a connection with other words such as “hatha-, mantra, and laya” – which are references to traditions specializing in specific techniques, and is the ultimate goal of yoga practice. Knowing how those philosophical and/or theological understandings relate to yoga is a great way to gain a better appreciation and overall education of yoga.
