I am surprised at the condemnation of other methods of Yoga, especially Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga. I have seen in many books published nowadays and have also heard about the method of attaining oneness with SHRI KRISHNA. I am sure you are familiar with the Vedanta-sutra The Vedanta-sutra consists of four chapters. Factually, bhakti-yoga is the ultimate goal, but if one analyzes bhakti-yoga minutely he can understand the other, minor yogas.
Now, if somebody who wants to reach the hundredth floor is given a chance to use the elevator, within a minute he will be able to come to the top. However, I am surprised at the condemnation of other methods of Yoga, especially Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga.
Where is the question of Bhakti when your first statement is “Bhakti means to attain oneness with Sri Krishna”? You are quoting from Sri Krishna’s Bhagavad-gita but why stop at the sixth chapter where Krishna describes the meditational yoga system to Arjuna?
A personality like Arjuna was advised by Krishna to practice this meditational yoga system. And of all yogis, he who always abides in Me with great faith, worshipping Me in transcendental loving service, is most intimately related with Me in yoga and is the highest of all. Krishna certainly explained the meditational yoga system to Arjuna in the Bhagavad-gita [sixth chapter] Compared to us, Arjuna was very qualified.
The problem is you are giving us so many nice words, but you are not at all following the path of yoga Krishna has delineated in the sixth chapter of the Bhagavad-gita. The minds of those who are addicted to fruitive activity are always filled with unclean desires. In this age of Kali the practice of yoga is misunderstood by fallen souls who are not capable of practicing anything. The moment itself is divine, when one thinks of following the RAJA Yoga path for attaining God consciousness. I have been watching on news channels that scientists have successfully made synthetic DNA. After crossing the Royal Park Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway from West Palm Beach into Palm Beach, make the first left turn onto Four Arts Plaza. I’ve been influenced by many different types of Yoga but took my teacher training in the traditional Satyananda style of Hatha Yoga at the Yoga Vidya Dham Gurukul, Ashram, Nasik, India and I have also studied Hatha Yoga and advanced Hatha Yoga with The British School of Yoga. Individual Private Yoga classes are tailored for any level including complete beginners whatever age, fitness level, size or shape. If emailing about a private class please advise if you have any illness, injury or if you are pregnant.
For classes please wear loose comfortable clothing suitable for exercise no zips or buckles. Hatha Yoga postures do so much more than exercise can, they re-energize and re-balance the body, they help to physically strengthen, tone, increase flexibility, improve posture and reduce fat, they also have an effect on the digestive organs they help to detoxify and improve their functioning, they effect the endocrine glands which produce our hormones and this can help with conditions caused by over or under active glands including menstrual disorders, menopause, stress, anxiety and anger issues. Focusing on the breath during practice stills the mind, which in turn helps to calm and to focus us in life in general. The first two chapters discuss the relationship of the living entity with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The yogi who is progressive is therefore on the true path of eternal auspiciousness, whereas one who sticks to a particular point and does not make further progress is called by that particular name: karma-yogi, jnana-yogi, raja-yogi or astanga-yogi.
You may go step by step, following all the other yoga systems, or you may take directly to Krishna consciousness. He was Krishna’s personal friend and was living 5,000 years ago in a time much more suited to meditational yoga practice. If one carefully studies that chapter he will find that system of yoga can not be practiced in a city.


The hatha-yogis and astanga-yogis practice pranayama, but generally they do not know the purpose behind it. It should be a matter of duty for us to implement this great ancient Yoga of our motherland, at least for those whom it is possible. So perhaps, some time in the future, scientists may be able to create that favorable material situation where the soul may enter. So if you try to understand the purpose behind these lines, you'll find that Lord Krishna gave some sort of reservation for devotees, "Yoga kshema vahamya aham" He'll protect his devotees ONLY. Through the support of our donors, members, and volunteers we are able to continue our mission of sharing the finest art and cultural programming with our community and are looking forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come. Hatha combines body postures or asanas, with breathing techniques and meditation to stretch and align the body. Using multiple disciplines, participants are guided to better living through increased circulation, meditative practice and a stronger core. The Asanas or postures are sometimes linked through a gentle flowing sequence called a Vinyasa and sometimes held static for a few breaths or longer, at the end of the class I talk you through a short guided meditative relaxation known as Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep. My Hatha yoga movements incorporate anatomy trains research which utilizes the most efficient way to move the body as a whole influencing the fascial lines within the structure improving posture, asymetry and other somatic dysfunction.
If one is fortunate enough to come to the point of bhakti-yoga, it is to be understood that one has surpassed all the other yogas.
Lord Caitanya has recommended that in this age of Kali-yuga, since people are very short-lived, disturbed and full of anxiety, they should take up the direct process.
Of course it is not possible to practice any yoga system at all without at least a tinge of bhakti. If one wants to understand the Bhagavad-gita in completeness he has to read the entire book, not just the first six chapters.
So Krishna pacified Arjuna, telling him indirectly that he was the best of all yogis because he was always thinking of Krishna.
One has to go to a sacred, sanctified place like the Himalayan mountains or the bank of the Ganges. The purpose of pranayama, or mystic yoga, is to stop the mind and senses from engaging in fruitive activities. As long as one continues to be subject to polluted desires, he has to accept one material body after another. The conclusion is unless the karmis, jnanis and yogis come to the point of devotional service to Lord Krishna, their so-called austerities and yoga have no value.
First we have to understand the message of Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita AS IT IS ourselves and then we can impart it to others. This practice increases your strength, balance and flexibility to promote a peaceful, clear mind and body. Rassika Sabine Bourgi, BS, ESHP, NCTMB, LMT, has extensive education, training, accreditations and vast experience as a well-rounded instructor.
The third chapter describes how one can act in his relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. From the beginning of karma-yoga to the end of bhakti-yoga is a long way to self-realization.
And by His grace, by His causeless mercy, he has given us the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra, which lifts us immediately to the platform of bhakti-yoga.
In fact, RAJA Yoga is called RAJA Yoga because it encompasses all the methods of attaining God consciousness.
However it is possible to practice bhakti-yoga without practicing any other yoga system as it is the culmination of all yoga systems, it includes all other yoga systems. And have you not realized even though Krishna explained the meditational yoga system in the sixth chapter Arjuna was not able to follow it? Hence, I think that instead of completely sweeping away this divine path, it would be better to look correctly into it.


So-called yogis, without knowledge of the real purpose of yoga, practice it in order to keep the body fit. If Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is not worshipped, there is no point in practicing meditational yoga, performing karma-yoga or culturing empiric knowledge.
I would strongly recommend you seriously study Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is You will find it amazingly enlivening and enlightening and simply by studying this one book you will understand all systems of yoga and if you put the teachings into practice in your own life you will easily rise to the topmost platform of yoga in a very shout time. I am very self controlled, I will pracice this yoga and elevate on my own”, Maya will kick us out of yoga. Put raja yoga and bhakta yoga out of your mind, takke guidance of EXPERT~Srila Prabhupada and chant Hare Krishna.
I am very self controlled, I will pracice this yoga and elevate on my own", Maya will kick us out of yoga. She has an international flair working in classical, contemporary and modern styles, as well as working with all ages. Just as, when we speak of the Himalayas, we refer to the world’s highest mountains, of which the highest peak, Mount Everest, is considered the culmination.
It is a very divine and graceful method, since it has been propounded by Lord Krishna himself in the sixth chapter of the Bhagvad Gita and I do not think that RAJA Yogins are in any way INFERIOR to Bhaktas, because to practise RAJA Yoga, one has to be a Bhakta first. The problem lies not in the path or method, but in the attitude that modern people tend to take towards it.
But I don’t think you are sitting on the bank of the Ganges or in the Himalayan mountains at all so you are not following the system Krishna recommends in the sixth chapter. Thus they engage themselves in fruitive activities, and thus they are bound by desire to accept another body.
As far as pranayama is concerned, chanting of the holy name of the Lord and dancing in ecstasy are also considered pranayama. Some examples of fall downs are Vishvamitra muni, Kirtananda Swami(New Vrindavana) for more reference search Sulocana Prabhu on google. Click each title below for more information about other weekly wellness classes taught by Rassika. Then when karma-yoga increases in knowledge and renunciation that stage is called jnana-yoga [raja-yoga]. The RAJA Yoga path has to be divine, since it has come from the mouth of the Great Lord, The Lord of Yoga (Yogeshwara), Bhagvan Shri Krishna himself. The actual aim of pranayama is to strengthen the mind and senses in order to engage them in devotional service.
When jnana-yoga increases in meditation on the Supersoul [paramatma] by various physical processes, and when the mind is on Him, one has reached the stage called astanga-yoga. Similarly, all the processes of yoga are connected, like a staircase, but we shouldn’t be satisfied to stop on the fiftieth floor or the eightieth floor. What is the problem, then, if this path is followed with perfect devotion to God and self-surrender to the Guru?
In order to save such yogis from wandering throughout various species of life, the sastras warn that in this age of Kali-yuga such yogic practice is simply a waste of time. Therefore to act in that relationship one must perform sadhana-bhakti, or the prescribed duties of service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. And when one surpasses astanga-yoga and comes to the point of serving the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, one has reached bhakti-yoga the culmination. We should go to the highest platform, the hundredth floor–pure Krishna consciousness.
