Types of Yoga
- Raj Yoga- Raj means “royal” and the most important part of this branch of yoga is meditation. There are eight “oggs” of this yoga – due to which Patanjali named it “Ashtanga Yoga” Patanjali has mentioned this in “Yoga Sutras”. The 8th organ is as follows: Yama (swearing), rules (rules of conduct or self-discipline), asana, pranayama (breathing control), withdrawal (control of senses), hold (concentration), meditation (meditation), and Samadhi (ecstasy or final liberation). Yaj Yoga attracts self-consciousness and people willing to meditate. Asana is the most popular part of Raj Yoga, even for most people, the meaning of yoga is asana. But the asana is just one part of yoga of one type. Yoga is much more than the asana practice.
- Karm Yoga- The next branch is the path of yoga or service, and none of us can escape from this path. The principle of Karma Yoga is that what we experience today is made by our actions in the past. Being aware of this, we can make the present a way to create a good future, which frees us from being bound by negativity and selfishness. Karma is the path to self-ascending action. Whenever we do our work and live our life in selfless form and serve others, we do karma yoga.
- Bhakti Yoga– Bhakti Yoga describes the path of devotion. By looking at God in all the universe, Bhakti Yoga is a positive way of controlling emotions. The path of devotion gives us the opportunity to create acceptance and tolerance for all.
