Philosophy of dance
“Belly” means life, but belly dance means the dance of life. After all, what associations appear with the word “life”? Of course, with a woman-mother, with the earth. Belly dance with movements reflects the process of conception, then – the bearing of a child and his birth.
Therefore, erotic elements are included in the dance. Civilizations developed, dance changed and went beyond the strict boundaries of religion. Another direction of its use appeared – secular, the dance began to entertain the people of the East.
Yoga is a philosophy of body and soul
Yoga is an ancient Indian esoteric tradition, the foundations of which were first systematized by the famous guru Patanjali, who lived in the 2nd century BC. However, it would not be correct to consider only Patanjali as the founder of this philosophy, because it is believed that yoga was transmitted to humanity directly by the Creator through his messenger-avatar Krishna to the ancient Indian prophet Arjuna.
The foundations of this teaching were scattered throughout the ancient Indian epic – from the Vedas to the Puranas. However, it is quite difficult to establish the exact historical framework of the emergence of this teaching.
The teaching of yoga is multifaceted. Its main goal is to achieve nirvana (complete union of creation with its creator). The very meaning of the Sanskrit term “yoga” is translated as “combination”. That is, the combination of the created with its creator.
There are many forms of yoga. Yoga of action (karma-yoga), yoga of faith and worship (bhakti-yoga), yoga of knowledge (jnana-yoga), yoga of regulated breathing and correct postures (hatha-yoga), yoga of awakening energy in the spine (laya-yoga), correct the use of sounds and words (mantra yoga), the yoga of meditation and contemplation (raja yoga) and others. Each of them carries a single meaning – the achievement of certain steps on the way to a single goal.
