  5. The First Level The first level handling is at the body level to use techniques of physical relaxation. Simple asanasprovide mastery over different groups of muscles by increasing the elasticity of muscle fibers and releasing tensions and stresses. The release of stresses at body level gives deep rest to all the organs and systems in our body. http://aksharayogaschool.com/

  6. The Second Level The second level operation is slowing and balancing of breath. Practice of pranayama, regulates breathing and its rhythm, especially by slowing it down and also by introducing breaks between the breaths. It balances the flow of breath between the two nostrils. According to Yoga, there is close connection between the flow of respiration and the dynamics of mind. Slow breath calms the mind, enhances its clarity and bridges the gap between body and mind. http://aksharayogaschool.com/

  7. The Third Level The third level handling is at the emotional and mental levels. Practices of devotional sessions, pratyahara (sense withdrawal), concentration and meditation are used to bring clarity and calmness in mind. The technique of Bhakti Yoga harnesses the qualities of the right side of the brain and helps us to gain control over our emotions. The rush of the senses towards their objects is brought under control by the technique of Pratyahara which in essence slows down the innate rush of the mind. Practices of concentration and meditation featured by single thought, slowness, wakefulness, expansiveness and energy conservation refines the mind to a great extent. http://aksharayogaschool.com/

  8. The Principles Thus we can summarize the principles of Yoga in three points: • Relaxation of all the groups of muscles • Slowing down of the breath • Calming of the mind In this way Yoga forms a holistic perspective towards life and develops the personality physically, mentally and emotionally. http://aksharayogaschool.com/
