Yoga for Healthy Living

In sanskrit the word for health is “Swasthya” which has a profound meaning. It is made of two root sanskrit words – “Swa” or the Self and “Stha” meaning centered. So swasthya can be roughly translated as “Centered in one’s own Self”. In the Indian System, the Self is described as Sat-Chit-Ananda or Being-Consciousness-Bliss.
