Sport – Differences between ABHEDA YOGA and PHYSICAL CULTURE -1-

The millennial science of yoga has a holistic view of exercises; there are many differences between yoga exercises and traditional physical culture.


There have been numerous courses that use the name “yoga” but are, in fact, gymnastics or stretching in an oriental atmosphere (pilates uses another name and does not abuse the term “yoga”).

Even authentic complex yogic methods that use ample movements and force integrate significantly and not form aspects related to:

  • breathing
  • concentration
  • directing pranic energies,
  • mantras and
  • special states that are accessed for certain tracked effects.

In this analysis we refer, therefore, to a comparison between Abheda Yoga and Physical Culture

without integrating here under the name of yoga the commercial methods that are, in fact, sports with a more exotic name.

The main difference between Abheda Yoga and Physical Culture is

the fact that sport produces physical evolution and results by generating states of muscular crisis that stimulate the development of muscles, bones and joints, along with the increase of the influx of blood through the muscles and the reduction of the influx of blood through the internal organs, endocrine glands and brain.

While ABHEDA YOGA generates an evolution based on

harmony, energy throughout the being, including the internal organs, endocrine glands and brain. All this progressively, at the limit of comfort, without forcing and in constant balance…
AND FOR ANY AGE, developing both the physical body and the mind, character, emotional and ideational anasmbl.

Thus are tangible the greatest performances of the human being

without forcing and cultivating balance of any kind all the time.

Today, yoga influences all the main types of sports and exercises:

basketball and professional football, dance, aerobics, athletics, because it turns out that sport needs yoga… while yoga does not need sports, since it is a complete system that achieves results for almost anyone and at any age.

Over time, many have learned the lessons of the dangers of physical overtraining, violent heavy training and unbalanced exercises, and are now adapting them more and more to the wisdom of yoga.

Let’s take a look at the principles that have increasingly made it a popular and influential technique, changing the way we take care of our bodies and minds through various exercises.
