Ups and downs are part of life…
• As human beings, it is inevitable that we have our
share of ups and downs.
• Something always pushes us down, throws us off-
balance and makes us uneasy.
• During such moments, it is imperative that we stop,
take a step back and observe ourselves objectively
to understand how long it takes us to bounce back
to normalcy once again.
• The faster we can disentangle ourselves from events
of the past, the faster we begin experiencing
freedom in the present.
99 times down………..
100 times up !!
Yoga, the antidote…..
• This is where Yoga comes in, to rescue us from
this vicious negative spiral of mental and
emotional whirlpools that suck us down into
the depths of despair.
• Yoga may be understood as a conscious and
evolutionary path that enables us to break
free from our conditioned patterns and
tendencies (samskara-vasana) that are
fragmenting us constantly.
YOGA
enhances the
“Power of Choice”
The Superpower of Being Human!
Making conscious choices through Yoga
1. Let go of the negativities beseeching us (doshanivarana),
2. Regain our balance, equipoise (samatvam) at the earliest,
3. Relax ourselves so that we can rebuild and replenish our
resources (nishpanda kaya kalpaanukrama).
4. Empower ourselves to efficiently face ‘repeat challenges’ by:
a) Adopting healthy attitudes (pratipakshabhavanam, maitri,
karuna etc),
b) Enhancing flexibility of body-mind-emotions- spirit
complex (hathayoga),
c) Developing objective self-awareness (vairagya,swadhyaya)
d) Creating positive relationships through acceptance
(samabhavabhavana).
• Many studies have reported that Yoga reduces
allostatic load & induces balance of autonomic
nervous system.
• This is the keystone in developing adaptive
resilience.
• Yoga enables alignment of panchakosha, the five-
fold aspects of our existence - the anatomical,
physiological, psychological, discerning and
universal.
• Jnana yoga kriya-s and prakriya-s enable inherent
healing energies to integrate, reunite and bring
together fragmented parts of the individual thereby
enhancing such adaptive resilience.
The transformative power of Yoga!
• Yoga also empowers the spirit, developing a deep
and subtle adaptive resilience that promotes the
skilful stepping beyond one’s limitations, enabling
self-transformation (atmabhavabhavana).
• This facilitates insight, empathy and an ability to
be calm and focus the mind, thus ultimately
transcending all limiting traits of the individual.
• Such a transformation of the individual until they
manifest their fullest potential, and live life as it is
meant to be, is truly the goal of Yoga itself.
Role of Yoga
in
Times of COVID 19
Fear during COVID-19 Pandemic
• Every human being on our planet has been affected
directly or indirectly by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
• This “invisible enemy”, has brought forth another
inner enemy that destroys us from within is FEAR.
• Fear weakens our immune system!
Focus on Self-Care; Need of the hour
• We need to refocus on our own salutogenesis
(Swastha), our own inherent capacity and ability to
be responsible for our health and wellness.
• We must move from pathogenesis, the focus on
disease that worsens fear, towards salutogenesis,
the focus on health that strengthens all our systems!
• Yoga empowers us, enables us to take charge of our
own life, thus promoting holistic health for each and
every one of us.
• Yoga strengthens our immune system!
• Yogic principles (Yama-Niyama) of cleanliness,
purity and self-control are most important in the
present moment where social (physical)
distancing, and personal hygiene are being
emphasized by all medical authorities.
• Sense of service (Seva) and unconditional action
(Nishkama Karma Yoga) are to be emphasised to
help our fellow brethren who are in need.
• We need to support those in the forefront of this
battle through our cheerfulness (Mudita) while
having compassion (Karuna) for those who are
suffering.
Kriya Yoga, the triple vaccine
• Abhinivesha, the primitive survival urge can over-
power even the wisest of wise- Patanjali Maharishi
Kriya
Yoga
Tapa
Swadhayaya
Ishwara pranidhana
• Unless the Kleshas are
attenuated we cannot manifest
wellness.
• Kriya Yoga (Tapa-Swadhyaya-
Ishwarapranidhana) is the triple
vaccine, to deal an effective
blow to COVID19.
• Yoga practices especially those
done mindfully will strengthen
our immune system by inducing a
sense of empowerment and self-
confidence.
• They help us regain cortical
control over the senses and
emotions that are in turmoil.
• Through Yogic self care, we can be
our true selves; strong, safe,
caring and healthy.
• We need to stay safe and stay
healthy if we are to help others.
Psycho-Neuro-Immunology
• A branch of modern medical science that deals
with the mind-body phenomenon of
• “how our thoughts and emotions can affect our
immune system”.
• Stress, fear and negative emotions are known to
weaken our immune system.
• Yoga (including meditation), mindfulness, positive
emotions, and relaxation strengthen it.
Role of limbic over-reactivity
• The limbic system plays a major role in triggering
such emotional upheaval that then results in a
weakening of the immune function.
• When the immune function is weakened every
microbe gets a chance to attack us as all our
defences are wreaked.
• Fear, especially of the magnitude being
experienced and expressed by all of us in the
present times, will totally destroy any chances we
have of fighting this devious enemy.
• Fearlessness, Abhayam is the need of the hour!
“The first disease is the
sense of duality,
leading to fear that
creates imbalance of
mind leading to
diseases in the body”.
- Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri
- (1907-1993)
Psychosomatics in the Yoga Vashista
• The Yoga Vashista, codified at least 5000 years ago has
so long ago, already understood this psycho-somatic
phenomenon and termed it is Adhija-Vyadhi.
• Perception of duality between ‘Self’ and Universe
leads to mental agitations in Manomaya Kosha,
• Haphazard flow of Prana in Pranamaya,
• Hypo-cellular activity (Ajeeranatvam), hyper-cellular
activity (Ateejeeranatvam) and altered cellular activity
(Kujeeranatvam) in Annamaya.
• According to Yoga disease (Vyadhi) is a manifestation
of imbalnaces at the psyche (Adhi) itself.
Stress management through Yoga
• Dr W Selvamurthy gave a beautiful
message at SBV* recently. He said:
Yoga enables and empowers
individuals to
– Modify their perceptions of the stressors,
– Optimise their responses to them, and
– Efficiently release the pent up stresses.
• We can think of it as a 3-in-1 action!!
* Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth, Pondicherry, India
Some useful practices
during this time……….

• Mantra Japa especially of OM is very
useful as it is known to attenuate the
limbic over-activity.

• Pranava Pranayama, Dhyanam and
relaxation using Akara, Ukara and
Makara are extremely useful in inducing
relaxation response from within. This
will strengthen our immune system.

enables us to overcome the ‘fear of mortality’,
that poison that dampens our immunity and
capacity to heal.

Bhairava Mudra to enhance self-
confidence and resilience
• To perform Bhairava Mudra,
place your upturned right hand
on top of the upturned left in a
cupped manner resting both
hands on the lap.
• Close your eyes and become
mindful of the inner strength
developing.
• If the left hand is placed
dominant over right it becomes
Bhairavi Mudra.
Watch Bhairava
Mudra
• Abhaya Mudra is one way of
embodying or signifying, "I'm not
afraid of life; I'm not afraid of
what's in my heart and I choose to
live an authentic life no matter
what others think or say".
• It is performed by lifting the open
palm of the right hand and facing it
forward as if to tell fear, “Stop in
your tracks! I am not afraid of you
anymore”.

  • 10. Ups and downs are part of life… • As human beings, it is inevitable that we have our share of ups and downs. • Something always pushes us down, throws us off- balance and makes us uneasy. • During such moments, it is imperative that we stop, take a step back and observe ourselves objectively to understand how long it takes us to bounce back to normalcy once again. • The faster we can disentangle ourselves from events of the past, the faster we begin experiencing freedom in the present.
  • 12.
  • 13. Yoga, the antidote….. • This is where Yoga comes in, to rescue us from this vicious negative spiral of mental and emotional whirlpools that suck us down into the depths of despair. • Yoga may be understood as a conscious and evolutionary path that enables us to break free from our conditioned patterns and tendencies (samskara-vasana) that are fragmenting us constantly.
  • 14. YOGA enhances the “Power of Choice” The Superpower of Being Human!
  • 15.
  • 16. Making conscious choices through Yoga 1. Let go of the negativities beseeching us (doshanivarana), 2. Regain our balance, equipoise (samatvam) at the earliest, 3. Relax ourselves so that we can rebuild and replenish our resources (nishpanda kaya kalpaanukrama). 4. Empower ourselves to efficiently face ‘repeat challenges’ by: a) Adopting healthy attitudes (pratipakshabhavanam, maitri, karuna etc), b) Enhancing flexibility of body-mind-emotions- spirit complex (hathayoga), c) Developing objective self-awareness (vairagya,swadhyaya) d) Creating positive relationships through acceptance (samabhavabhavana).
  • 17. • Many studies have reported that Yoga reduces allostatic load & induces balance of autonomic nervous system. • This is the keystone in developing adaptive resilience. • Yoga enables alignment of panchakosha, the five- fold aspects of our existence - the anatomical, physiological, psychological, discerning and universal. • Jnana yoga kriya-s and prakriya-s enable inherent healing energies to integrate, reunite and bring together fragmented parts of the individual thereby enhancing such adaptive resilience.
  • 18. The transformative power of Yoga! • Yoga also empowers the spirit, developing a deep and subtle adaptive resilience that promotes the skilful stepping beyond one’s limitations, enabling self-transformation (atmabhavabhavana). • This facilitates insight, empathy and an ability to be calm and focus the mind, thus ultimately transcending all limiting traits of the individual. • Such a transformation of the individual until they manifest their fullest potential, and live life as it is meant to be, is truly the goal of Yoga itself.
  • 19.
  • 20.
  • 21. Role of Yoga in Times of COVID 19
  • 22. Fear during COVID-19 Pandemic • Every human being on our planet has been affected directly or indirectly by the COVID-19 Pandemic. • This “invisible enemy”, has brought forth another inner enemy that destroys us from within is FEAR. • Fear weakens our immune system!
  • 23. Focus on Self-Care; Need of the hour • We need to refocus on our own salutogenesis (Swastha), our own inherent capacity and ability to be responsible for our health and wellness. • We must move from pathogenesis, the focus on disease that worsens fear, towards salutogenesis, the focus on health that strengthens all our systems! • Yoga empowers us, enables us to take charge of our own life, thus promoting holistic health for each and every one of us. • Yoga strengthens our immune system!
  • 24. • Yogic principles (Yama-Niyama) of cleanliness, purity and self-control are most important in the present moment where social (physical) distancing, and personal hygiene are being emphasized by all medical authorities. • Sense of service (Seva) and unconditional action (Nishkama Karma Yoga) are to be emphasised to help our fellow brethren who are in need. • We need to support those in the forefront of this battle through our cheerfulness (Mudita) while having compassion (Karuna) for those who are suffering.
  • 25. Kriya Yoga, the triple vaccine • Abhinivesha, the primitive survival urge can over- power even the wisest of wise- Patanjali Maharishi Kriya Yoga Tapa Swadhayaya Ishwara pranidhana • Unless the Kleshas are attenuated we cannot manifest wellness. • Kriya Yoga (Tapa-Swadhyaya- Ishwarapranidhana) is the triple vaccine, to deal an effective blow to COVID19.
  • 26. • Yoga practices especially those done mindfully will strengthen our immune system by inducing a sense of empowerment and self- confidence. • They help us regain cortical control over the senses and emotions that are in turmoil. • Through Yogic self care, we can be our true selves; strong, safe, caring and healthy. • We need to stay safe and stay healthy if we are to help others.
  • 27. Psycho-Neuro-Immunology • A branch of modern medical science that deals with the mind-body phenomenon of • “how our thoughts and emotions can affect our immune system”. • Stress, fear and negative emotions are known to weaken our immune system. • Yoga (including meditation), mindfulness, positive emotions, and relaxation strengthen it.
  • 28.
  • 29.
  • 30. Role of limbic over-reactivity • The limbic system plays a major role in triggering such emotional upheaval that then results in a weakening of the immune function. • When the immune function is weakened every microbe gets a chance to attack us as all our defences are wreaked. • Fear, especially of the magnitude being experienced and expressed by all of us in the present times, will totally destroy any chances we have of fighting this devious enemy. • Fearlessness, Abhayam is the need of the hour!
  • 31.
  • 32. “The first disease is the sense of duality, leading to fear that creates imbalance of mind leading to diseases in the body”. - Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri - (1907-1993)
  • 33. Psychosomatics in the Yoga Vashista • The Yoga Vashista, codified at least 5000 years ago has so long ago, already understood this psycho-somatic phenomenon and termed it is Adhija-Vyadhi. • Perception of duality between ‘Self’ and Universe leads to mental agitations in Manomaya Kosha, • Haphazard flow of Prana in Pranamaya, • Hypo-cellular activity (Ajeeranatvam), hyper-cellular activity (Ateejeeranatvam) and altered cellular activity (Kujeeranatvam) in Annamaya. • According to Yoga disease (Vyadhi) is a manifestation of imbalnaces at the psyche (Adhi) itself.
  • 34.
  • 35. Stress management through Yoga • Dr W Selvamurthy gave a beautiful message at SBV* recently. He said: Yoga enables and empowers individuals to – Modify their perceptions of the stressors, – Optimise their responses to them, and – Efficiently release the pent up stresses. • We can think of it as a 3-in-1 action!! * Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth, Pondicherry, India
  • 36.
  • 37. Some useful practices during this time……….
  • 38. Nada Bhavana Shuddhi Kriya • Relive anxiety and tension from storehouses in the abdomen, chest and neck. Ha Ha, Ho Ho, He He ! • Become aware of the subconscious stresses induced by the survival mechanisms. Me Me ! • Enhance the cognitive, higher abilities of the intellect.

  • 43. Pranava Japa for Emotional Self-Care • Mantra Japa especially of OM is very useful as it is known to attenuate the limbic over-activity. Listen to Om Japa • Pranava Pranayama, Dhyanam and relaxation using Akara, Ukara and Makara are extremely useful in inducing relaxation response from within. This will strengthen our immune system. Enjoy guided Pranava relaxation
  • 44. • The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra (Trayambakam) enables us to overcome the ‘fear of mortality’, that poison that dampens our immunity and capacity to heal. Aum Trayambakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam; Hroom Jhum Saha Sarva Nakshatrey Sarva Raasi Sujathu Sarva Namdesya Saha Jhum Hroom; Urva Rukamiva Bandhanaan, Mrityor Mokshiye Maamritat Aum Enjoy A Mahamrityunjaya Contemplation
  • 45.
  • 46. Bhairava Mudra to enhance self- confidence and resilience • To perform Bhairava Mudra, place your upturned right hand on top of the upturned left in a cupped manner resting both hands on the lap. • Close your eyes and become mindful of the inner strength developing. • If the left hand is placed dominant over right it becomes Bhairavi Mudra. Watch Bhairava Mudra
  • 47. • Abhaya Mudra is one way of embodying or signifying, "I'm not afraid of life; I'm not afraid of what's in my heart and I choose to live an authentic life no matter what others think or say". • It is performed by lifting the open palm of the right hand and facing it forward as if to tell fear, “Stop in your tracks!
