A journey to take along with Manish yogi the founder of “Yoga the essence of life foundation’. Manish Yogi who practices classical yoga since he was into school, is celebrating yoga teacher known for his knowledge, friendly demeanor, humor and an ability to connect with all through his magnetic persona.
Through his own learnings he wants to transform others too. Manish as the name literally comes from hindi word ‘Mann’ which means mind and ‘Ish’ meaning God. So the one who has mastered and controlled his own mind, is on a mission to make everyone else find their true balance and master their own minds.
The spiritual journey of yogi Manish Yogi is really enthralling. Donning many professional hats during his life, from a management consultant to a life coach, to a banker and a real estate professional. He found his real calling in yoga from where he had no plans looking any further.
He graduated from Delhi University with dual Post-Graduation . He enjoys his free time in occasional writing, reading, travelling and observing human nature.
He is one of the few people in the world of yoga who not just follows but wants to bring to others too the authentic teachings of traditional form of Patanjali yoga sutra. Never force yourself performing all yoga poses or bending your bodies beyond capacity but be comfortable with the self. Yoga is not just about movement of the body but about being one with the self, being in harmony with the nature is essential, is his Mantra.

In yoga, we work on our prana energy which is in the form of our breath inhalation and exhalation. By stopping the breath,it freezes the mind for that moment, in that very moment we are not able to think, we are not able to plan, we are neither in future nor in the past, for the moment we are absolute in the present and that very instant we enter into yoga. The whole effort of yoga is to stop the breath (or to freeze the breath that is also called khumbhaka).Initially, we have to work hard to control the breath eventually it start happening naturally by regular practice. Practice of yoga help us to restrain our breath either by doing asana or by pranayama. Yoga works on controlling your breath thus helping us to calm the emotional turbulence in the mind. Our mind ,body and breath are closely connected to each other thus by controlling the breath the balance of body and mind is maintained. Patanjali defined Yoga as ‘chitta vritti Nirodha’ Chitta mean mind, Vritti means Pattern of your thoughts and Nirodha means to control or still the activity of the mind. When you freeze the activities of the mind, you are in yoga hence mind and body both are in equilibrium with each other. In religion, we work on mind whereas in yoga we work on breath. Which is more scientific that is why yoga is not considered as a religion. It is a pure science. Everything is pure logic like 2+2=4. Patanjali was a scientist who did everything logically and discover the path of yoga.
