Yoga in Daily Life
The central idea of yoga is to live happily. That happiness is inherent in everybody and everything. Many people however are looking for happiness outside in the external world. In the end they are disappointed.
The System “Yoga in Daily Life” is one of the most famous and acknowledged systems of yoga throughout the world created by His Holiness Vishwaguru Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, whose main goal is to help humanity attain physical, mental, social and spiritual health.
