Understanding Yoga in a Simple Way

Updated: Feb 6

Yoga is an ancient form which consists of breathing and exercises.People all over the world practise yoga.It is immensely beneficial not just for the body but for the mind and also fulfils the soul.

As we begin this journey to unwind and understand yoga ,I would talk you through a lot of things which would encourage you to practise.

How Does Yoga Help

Imagine you had a hard day in office and the traffic jams have added to the score. Tired people can end their day with asana to stretch to the body, this would help in calming their body and also provide the much needed relaxation after a long hustling day .Once the body has relaxed the mind surely calms down making space to do some deep breathing which would help clear the mind chattering.

Inversely you can begin your day with yogic exercises and breathing to help you kick start and help you lead a balanced day ahead. for e.g if you are in a job which is highly demanding and requires you to attend meetings all day long then with regular yoga practise you can get over anxiety and overwhelm.You can also practise breathing while at work or any situation where you feel stressed out.

From both the above examples you can see how regular practise can help you rejuvenate and relax.

The best part of this ancient practise is it does not need any equipment .It can be done anywhere and is very easy to learn.You start with learning basics that include standing, sitting, sleeping posture. Then there are intermediate to advanced poses. You can also create your own sequences or flows.

Yoga suits all age groups also it does not need any extra space or equipment. It is essential for spine as well as you age.Just the body weight and there you are going deep within you and discovering yourself anew.For those who find the poses difficult there are props in the form of ropes or belts which are easily available. This is the simplest, least investing practise against all other exercise forms. Its a complete package in itself.Its you with the universe. Yoga is also the base for many dance forms or martial arts for. e.g Tribal Belly Dance or any traditional martial arts techniques particularly in India.

Make Health and Wealth from Yoga:

With the emergence of social media we can now create sequences and share with people.Yoga has connected the world at large and made life healthier and disease free for millions.

People have established million dollar businesses and there are more and more stories from all corners of the world on how people have healed from life threatening diseases using this 5000 year old technique.

Yoga is and will remain to inspire many more in the time to come.

Need Inspiration…..

I particularly found Tara Stiles, Yogea and Leslie Fight Master, Yoga with Adriene very interesting.They have evolved their yoga practises such that even watching them inspires you to follow along.They have sequences for stress, pregnancy, balance ,thyroid to name a few.


In Review:

Yoga is as simple as nature, it can help us with day to day life and also with complex problems ranging from health to mental stress.

This ancient form has survived through time and remains timeless.

I bow down to this immensely useful technique and would encourage all to give it a try once in your life.
