Purpose of PNCECS
From all of the above arises what PNCECS is, its purpose: to present Yoga in a complete, orderly and understandable way. It is complete in the sense that we will not only talk about physical movements (Hatha Yoga),
but we will also deal with that unknown branch called Raja Yoga or Mental Yoga, which seeks to connect the individual with the Cosmos at a subconscious level, through meditation.
As it is achieved by practicing, the above belongs to the field of Practice. The other is the Theory, almost always forgotten, but which provides the philosophical basis of Yoga. Keep in mind that Yoga is the search for knowledge, as we will see later.
Ordered in the sense that we will try to explain the subjects in a way that allows you to advance little by little, integrating the concepts. You may find it difficult to understand some of the things we say in theory, and then experience them in practice.
Or the other way around, saying “lateral inclination postures have balancing effects”, and explaining why this is theoretically true, the next time you do those movements add a perfect understanding and consciousness to the movement.
Understandable because the entire PNCECS team, and myself included, have gone through the same process as you. We know that between so many Sanskrit words and new concepts for you, you can make a mess. Little by little, and with clarity. We hope to do our best.
We are open to your ideas and advice, we want to share knowledge. Participate when you have doubts, which is normal. If you come across one, say so, don’t keep it.
Others may have them, and from PNCECS we will review the posts because maybe we are the ones who have made a mistake in explaining the ideas. It is very interesting a Blog in which you participate, you ask questions, you answer them as each one sees them…
One can give useful advice on how to alleviate a discomfort that another has told us he noticed when performing this or that posture; or ask advice on eating better, or how to quit smoking using the principles of Yoga. The participation of all is enriching for all. Unity is strength.
