Dr Ramesh Pattni completed his doctoral thesis at the University of Oxford, Faculty of Theology, on Yoga Psychology based on the Yogasūtra of Patañjali. He has been teaching Hinduism since the 1990s and has a particular interest in the psychological and philosophical aspects of Advaita Vedanta and practical applications of its non-dualist approach.
In this iWellness Show exclusive, he focuses on exploring the connect between Yoga and spirituality. Yoga is a holistic package for happy living, which provides techniques to unite the body, mind and breath. It offers a connect to the inner core of our being – the spiritual aspect of our lives, he explains.
We do these things every day, but rarely give them more than a passing thought. Living consciously is about being aware of every aspect of your life and giving it considered thought. In this episode, Dr Pattni talks us through choosing to be mindful of matters both large and small. Concepts with deeper meaning are also sometimes neglected.

In this episode, Dr Pattni talks about all these aspects of a truly healthy and nourishing relationship.
