Yoga and Its Yogic Meaning

yogic meaning

Nowadays, "yogic" is a term frequently heard at yoga classes, wellness blogs and conversations among those interested in mindfulness. While it might be easy to take for granted, "yogic" actually refers to "union", more specifically between body, mind, soul and universal consciousness.

Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. It was introduced to the West by Indian monks traveling during the late 1800s and early 1900s; today over 15 million Americans of various backgrounds and religions (including atheists and agnostics ) practice yoga.

Yoga comes in various styles, each emphasizing one aspect of spiritual practice. Karma yoga focuses on service and providing positive outlets for emotion while jnana yoga introduces the path of wisdom through study; finally bhakti yoga encourages acceptance and tolerance through devotion.

No matter the style of yoga practice that attracts you, all aim to provide a holistic and integrated experience - something Sadhguru refers to as living the "yogic life."

As can be seen, the word yogic encompasses much more than meets the eye - especially when used in daily conversation. Yoga-influenced living encompasses healthy eating habits, exercise routines, meditation techniques and a deep sense of connection with all things around us.
