What is the purpose of Yoga? What are its aims and objectives? Some people believe that Yoga is a great way to relax and improve physical health. Others maintain that it is a great tool for developing a healthy attitude towards life.
In order to discuss this issue, we need to determine whether or not yoga really lowers our blood pressure, and whether or not it really eases our tension. We also need to establish what exactly constitutes a healthy attitude towards life. To do so, we first need to define what makes an attitude unhealthy and then determine if the attitude of taking refuge in Yoga is one of these unhealthy attitudes.
If it is determined that the yogic philosophy is not an unhealthy philosophy, then we must ask ourselves whether or not it can be used as an effective solution for reducing anxiety and improving mental wellbeing. And if it can be used for this purpose, then we must determine what kind of results can be achieved through its practice.
