Invocation to Lord Patanjali

Yogena cittasya padena vacam
Malam sarirasya ca vaidyakaena
Yopa karot tam pravaram muninum
Patanjalim pranjalir anato smi
Abahu – purusakaram
Sankha – cakrasi – dharinam
Sahasra – sirasam svetam
Pranamami Patanjalim

To the noblest of sages, Patanjali
Who gave Yoga for serenity of mind,
Grammar for purity of speech,
And medicine for perfection of the body,
I bow before Patanjali,
Whose torso has a human form,
Whose arms hold a conch and disc,
Who is crowned by a cobra
O incarnation of Adisesa,
My Salutation to Thee.



The coMra laser combes infra-red laser light, red LED light, magnetism, low-intensity ultrasound, as well as sequenced coloured LED lights in a patented geometric arrangement. The radiances work together in a fully coherent manner – hence the name, coMra, which stands for coherent Multi-Radiance therapy. Comra Supports the body’s natural healing

The combined action of the infrared laser and magnetic field stimulates cellular metabolism, but more specifically it stimulates the synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is a fuel used by all cells for healthy functioning. So coMra therapy activates the increased synthesis of ATP in the cells, encouraging the return to optimal functioning coMra therapy ‘energise’ the cells and aids in the increase of mitochondrial respiration, reduces inflammation, stimulates neuron generation and growth of new blood vessels, and stimulates stem cell proliferation, migration and differentiation.


Asta Yoga :: The Eight Limbs of Yoga

yama: universal principles
niyama: individual codes
asana: practice of postures
pranayama: regulation of the breath
pratyahara: withdrawal of the senses
dharana: concentration
dhyana: silence meditation   samadhi: complete immersion

Asta Anga = 8 Limbs of Yoga

  • Yama: 1.Non-violence or compassion (Ahimsa). 2.Truth (Satya). 3.Non-stealing or grasping (Asteya). 4.Continence or study of sacred (Brahmacharya). 5.Non- hoarding (Aparigraha).
  • Niyama: 1.Purification of body (Saucha). 2.Contentment (Santosa) 3.Austerity or effort to achieve a goal (Tapas). 4.Self study (Svadhyaya). 5.Surrender personal ego to higher self (Isvava Pranidhana).
  • Asana: Postures corresponding to full potential of human being. Postures bring physical, mental and emotional steadiness, lightness and energy. Inner alignment = health and ease or free from disease. A soul without a healthy body is like a bird deprived of its power to fly.
  • Pranayama: Prana = breath, life, vitality, energy, strength, soul. Ayama = to control, expand lengthen or stretch. As mental grasping diminishes the mind becomes a fit vehicle for concentration and meditation.
  • Prathyahara: Through the practise of pranayama the yogi turns inwards and learns to control the senses. The mind is a by-product of posture and nutrition and is divided into: Sattvic – sweet and light Rajastic  – energetic and active  Tamasic –  heavy or grounded
  • Dharana: Uninterrupted concentration with mind focused steadily.
  • Dhyana: Meditation. Subject and object draw near each other.
  • Samadhi: The culmination of consistent practise of yoga.  Becoming one with object of meditation. State of truth in alignment to the SOUL.
