Yoga Traditional and Modern

Old and Modern Yoga
2 mn read

The concept of Yoga has often changed dramatically. If we compare traditional yoga with modern translation we can see if there is a real change.

In many classes, essays, books, blogs and other media in yoga we can see how they differ from ancient cultures.  These practices today are very different from those of the past.  Some practitioners of the day who see modern yoga as very different from traditional practice call modern yoga “Not Yoga”.  To be a diamond miner,  take care of your picks and shovels.

To be your spiritual miner,  take care of your body, spirit, and mind.  But do not confuse tools with intentions. Historically  For example, in ancient times a figure of yoga was found in 196 yoga sutras that were discussed and explained by a teacher for study.  Moreover, the deeper meaning of the Om mantra for example, is described in detail through the Upanishad and explained orally.

This text does not say that there is only one modern yoga … there are many different methods.  However, the general idea of ​​yoga has undergone a complete change that has proved its worth.  So yoga, like many ancient practices, appears to have been reduced in size over the centuries.  We can discuss, yet, that these inevitable changes simply reflect the yogas’ ability to adapt to changing circumstances.

Old yoga or other forms of traditional medicine incorporate deep-rooted religious roots and practices.  The purpose of traditional yoga was to attain moksha liberation, rebirth and the realization of your divinity.  As we have seen, traditional yoga is done differently than most popular modern styles.

An example of this can be seen in the case of jnana yoga. Instead it focuses on the path of rational self-examination and seeks the real enlightenment of the real human condition.  When the word yoga is used, most of us think of bending over in different ways.  In fact, this stance, known as “asanas” was traditionally not part of yoga until someone named Pontanjali wrote the Yoga Sutra 2200 years ago.

Pontanjali has created a commanding body shape and an intelligent connection.  Ancient yoga practitioners consider the asanas to be a small but useful part of the practice. old yoga styles are not as popular as modern yoga in Western culture, but many features are incorporated into modern yoga styles.  Having said that, many yoga studios today support their practice on a variety of body types / asanas.  Because of its many benefits including increased flexibility, and stress-relieving yoga has become a popular activity in Western culture  Also, depending on the style of yoga, a typical yoga class can focus on strengthening the body or on meditation using a particular ancient background.

Modern-day yoga does not require a physician to pay for any kind of spiritual enlightenment. However, it can also be a factor in gaining access to the light.
