15 May Discover, Experience, and Benefit at Dallas YogaFest!
If you are reading this article on your smart phone, tablet, or a laptop, stop for a second, and question yourself – “How did I get this proficient with these devices?”
The answer is you read the instruction manual, and learned how to use these devices. It is the knowledge that helped you set up the device, to discover its capabilities and exciting features. Similarly, we need to gain the knowledge of our devices – body, mind, soul – that God has bestowed upon us and learn how to harmonize them, to succeed and be happy in our life.
At the Dallas YogaFest, you will have a chance to garner this knowledge. The Keynote address, informative speeches, and workshops will shed light on Yoga, the timeless divine science, which incorporates all aspects of health – the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
Knowledge without practice and implementation is immaterial. You reap the benefits of Yoga, and achieve body-mind-soul connection resulting in peace, only when you practice it on a regular interval. Sage Patanjali, in his Yog Darshan (science of Yoga) instructs:
tīvrasaṁvegānām āsannaḥ (1.21)
“Success in Yog comes quickly to those who are intensely vigorous and energetic in practice.”
While you are at the Dallas YogaFest, not only do you have one whole day to put your knowledge to use, but take away tips to get started practicing yoga with your whole family at home. If you are a seasoned practitioner, you will gain knowledge to enhance and fine-tune your practice. It is a great opportunity for a hands-on and interactive experience of holistic Yoga – asanas, Pranayam, subtle body relaxation, meditation, and much more.
The benefit of practicing Yoga leads to a life of happiness, success, fulfillment and inner peace. How does that happen? “Every mental knot has a corresponding physical, muscular knot, and vice versa. Proper combination of asans, pranayam, subtle body relaxation, and meditation tackle these knots, both at the physical and mental levels. As a result of the release of dormant energy, the body becomes full of vitality and strength, the mind becomes light and creative, joyful and balanced,” says Swami Mukundananda ji.
