The sun symbolises the supreme light of the divine and the power of universal consciousness. It is the source of energy for life and in the Vedas, 'Surya Arghya' – offering at sunrise – was given importance: offering water to the sun is practiced during sunrise and in this process the clouds in our mind dissolve. We purify ourselves through the light and wisdom of the sun which helps us perceive our inner light. // Asavadityo brahma, Brahmai vaham asmi //
This Sun is Brahman.
What is brilliant and really awesome about the many Indian gods and goddesses: that they present the various cosmic influences, healing arts and creative powers. This means, they are not at all representatives of a particular religion, but rather meaningful figures with inspiring stories which remind us of our ability to embody divine qualities ourselves, and that we ourselves are beings of divine origin. They help us to realise our selves and to return to Yoga, our union and

Everything in the world is part of one sacred unity. Our ancestors worshipped trees, rivers, birds and stones and connected to universal principles. This attitude and way of living went beyond utility or usefulness. It had to do with reverence for all of God's creation. "I am the Self seated in the heart of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle and the very end of all beings". All beings have, therefore to be treated alike."
– Bhagavad Gita, sloka 20, Chapter 10 “Eart

"Hatha yoga practice has many elements, both behavioral and of practice. The Hatha yoga texts state that a successful yogi has certain characteristics.

Did you know that prayer flags originate in the Bon tradition, the ancient shamanic folk culture of Tibet?

The flags are often found strung along trails and peaks high in the Himalayas – basically in high places where wind will carry the blessings depi

The system of Yoga has assigned an important role to the practice of yoga asanas. In fact, Asanas should be practiced daily. Yoga Asanas are beneficial for everybody, whether you are a householder or spiritual seeker.
At Lily Yoga, we focus on all the essential asanas, also thos
It is a seated back-bending asana in modern yoga and one of the more challenging poses for which you need both stability and flexibility. It is particularly demanding because it requires you to remain centred and fluid, all at once. If you aren’t stable in your legs and core, you’ll topple over and if you aren’t fluid in your hips and spine, you risk forcing the pose and hurting yourself. King Pigeon Pose is about balancing these extremes, in both your body and mind. Move car

Perhaps the oldest written texts on our planet, India’s most ancient teachings The Vedas date back several thousands of years BC and hold the early seeds of yogic thought and wisdom. These authoritative teachings were 'received' as divine wisdom by the Rishis (sages) who undertook long periods of asceticism and meditation. The knowledge, rituals and prayers of the Vedas describe what it takes to live an exalted life, be liberated from worldly attachments and entanglements, a
