MORARJI DESAI NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF YOGA
Yoga is essentially spiritual. It dignifies the essential unity that is the basis of life. It embraces the fullspectrum of reality, from the most spiritual to the most material. The Philosophy of Yoga is practical andapplicable in our day-to-day living. The practice of Yoga is a process of self - discovery. It is an awakening of long deep rooted memories of whom and what we really are! Yoga, as union, implies perfect harmony of bodyand mind. It implies the harmonious integration of personality. The most common benefit of Yoga practice isthe sense of well being at all levels of our existence.Yoga understands health and well-being as a dynamic continuum of human nature and not a mere‘state’ to be attained and maintained. The lowest point on the continuum with the lowest speed of vibration isthat of death whereas the highest point with the highest vibration is that of immortality; in between these twoextremes lays the states of normal health and disease. Yoga involves a holistic approach to healing and well-being and integrates healing with the culture, diet, environment and tradition. Yoga practices have shown toreduce physiological signs of mental stress, both in normal persons and in those with abnormally high levelsof stress. Therefore it has got world-wide acceptance as an important system of health care.Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga (MDNIY) established in the year 1998 is an autonomousorganization fully funded by the Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare,Government of India, New Delhi. It is a focal Institute for planning, training, promotion and coordination of Yoga education, training, therapy and research in all aspects.
