Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means union of the individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Contrary to popular belief, yoga is not just a physical exercise where people twist, turn, stretch, and breathe in the most complex ways. These are actually only the most superficial aspects of this profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul.
Yoga and Homeopathy both share many fundamental principles and they both complement each other enormously. They both work to increase and unblock the flow of energy by utilizing the energy currents and energy centers of the body. In Homeopathy we call this energy the Vital Force and in Yoga it is called Prana, but they are essentially the same things, just with different names (in Chinese Medicine it is called Chi). In Yoga, posture (Asana), breath control (Pranayama) and body locks or seals (Bundas) are used to navigate this subtle energy through what the Yogis call the Nadis. Nadis are subtle energy channels that surround the physical body through which Prana or the Vital Force must pass through to ensure physical, mental and emotional health.
