Health and wellbeing
Explore the 8 limbs of yoga through a practical approach to optimise your physical and mental well-being.

Due to popular demand Tej Gyan Global Foundation is offering 20 free online ‘Ashtanga’ Yoga sessions to help us all stay fit and healthy.

Yoga is not just practicing postures (Asana) and breathing exercises (Pranayama). It is a lifestyle.

Sage Patanjali, from India, has given an eight-fold path or a practical guide leading to liberation called Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga literally means “eight limbs”. Asanas and Pranayama are just two of the eight limbs.

During these 20 sessions, we will learn about the 8 limbs of Yoga and try simple practical techniques to apply them in our daily lives. These techniques will guide us to live a healthy, happy, blissful and purposeful life.
