Gnosis Medical Yoga follows Ashtang Yoga and Hatha Yoga. Mahamuni Patanjali has formulated Ashtang Yoga in 500 BC. It consists of Yama, Niyam, Asan, Pranayam, Pratyahar, Dharana, Dhyan and Samadhi. Yama & Niyam discipline our behavior. Asanas help our body structurally and functionally. Pranayam deals with energy delivery system to conserve it and use it. Dharana teaches us to concentrate consciously. Dhyana opens our windows of our mind to observe and to be in present tense (unbiased & unprejudised) Samadhi is the pattern of personality which thinks of others and others only.
Hatha Yoga has its roots in Tantra Yoga, which is originated in prevedic era. It deals with two main streams of our life, one is pranic energy and other is power of consciousness. Opening and clearing of energy channels forms the mainstay of Hatha Yoga practices. This is achieved by a disciplined diet, sticking to principles which enhance study (Sadhak Tattavas), avoiding obstacles. (Bhadak Tattavas). Steadily reaching the higher level of consciousness is aimed by practicing awareness at shatchakras. They are located near vertebral column from bottom to top.
