Esta disciplina del yoga , combina una parte de Yoga dinámico , con otras fases de Hatha yoga y Yoga Iyengar. La fusión de estos tipos de yoga pretende llevar al practicante, durante la sesión , a un estado de presencia constante, en el que solo permanezcamos conscientes del cuerpo, sus limitaciones y de la respiración, así como de la concentración, en posturas de fuerza y equilibrio , para ser conscientes finalmente de nuestro estado.
Es el yoga del sentimiento, puesto que durante la sesión vamos a estar continuamente sintiendo ( el cuerpo, la postura, la respiración, la capacidad de abandono) .
“La mente descansa en el corazón”,esta es la premisa de Dil Yoga . Mientras sentimos , no pensamos.
The origins of Yoga
The origins of Yoga have been speculated to date back to pre-Vedic Indian traditions, but most likely developed around the sixth and fifth centuries BCE, in ancient India’s ascetic circles, which are also credited with the early sramana movements. The chronology of earliest texts describing yoga-practices is unclear, varyingly credited to Hindu Upanishads and Buddhist Pāli Canon, probably of third century BCE or later. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali from first half of 1st millennium CE is one of a key surviving major texts on Yoga. Hatha yoga texts emerged around 11th century CE, and in its origins was related to Tantrism.
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west,following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the Western world.Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual core.One of the six major orthodox schools of Hinduism is also called Yoga, which has its own epistemology and metaphysics, and is closely related to Hindu Samkhya philosophy.
The ultimate goal of Yoga is moksha though the exact definition of what form this takes depends on the philosophical or theological system with which it is conjugated.
According to Jacobsen, «Yoga has five principal meanings:
- Yoga as a disciplined method for attaining a goal;
- Yoga as techniques of controlling the body and the mind;
- Yoga as a name of one of the schools or systems of philosophy (darśana);
- Yoga as the goal of Yoga practice.»
Event Agenda and Preparation
Yoga came to the attention of an educated western public in the mid-19th century along with other topics of Indian philosophy. In the context of this budding interest, N. C. Paul published his Treatise on Yoga Philosophy in 1851.
The first Hindu teacher to actively advocate and disseminate aspects of yoga to a western audience, Swami Vivekananda, toured Europe and the United States in the 1890s. The reception which Swami Vivekananda received built on the active interest of intellectuals, in particular the New England Transcendentalists, among them R. W. Emerson, who drew on German Romanticism and the interest of philosophers and scholars like G. F. W. Hegel the brothers August Wilhelm Schlegel and Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel Max Mueller, A. Schopenhauer and others who had interests in things Indian.
