YOGA IS AIMED TO UNITE THE BODY, MIND AND THE SPIRIT
Owing to the current lifestyle of man, physical labor has taken a backseat and mental pressure has profoundly increased for even young kids. We live in a world where standard of living has increased to such an extent that all one needs to do is to press a button to complete a task. In the present scenario, the long lost ancient practice of yoga has come up as a life savior for many. Yoga is aimed to unite the body, mind and the spirit. Thus, it trains the body physically, mentally as well as spiritually to clean itself. Yoga makes the body fit and flexible and helps the practitioner to relax even in a stressful environment.
In earlier days it was believed that the ultimate purpose of yoga is to achieve salvation. But todayâ€™s scientific world propounds that long term yoga practitioners have shown improvement in musculoskeletal and mental health. It has also been stated that regular yoga practice has reportedly decreased symptoms of asthma and has increased brainâ€™s GABA level thereby improving mood and reducing anxiety.
Now-a-days yoga is being used not only for treating cardiac problems but also for the reducing insomnia, depression, pain, and fatigue among cancer patients. Yoga has also found its usefulness in curing arthritis, schizophrenia, lower back pain, digestive problems, cardiovascular as wells as endocrine diseases.
Hatha yoga, which is sometimes referred to as the â€˜psychophysical yogaâ€™ has proven very beneficial for heart disease. Studies of the effects of this yogic posture on heart disease suggest that yoga may improve symptoms of heart failure, reduce high blood pressure, lower cardiovascular risk factors and enhance cardiac rehabilitation. Hatha yoga creates a balance between mind and body by controlling the breathing process, practicing purification methods, maintaining a definite physical posture and calming the mind through relaxation and meditation. This yogic asana teaches poise, strength and balance and is practiced to improve the body's physical health and clear the mind.
Power Yoga has become very popular among the current generation. This Power Yoga is an extension of Ashtanga Yoga also known as Vinyasa Yoga. It emphasizes on developing individual's physical flexibility and fosters the desire for self-discipline. Power Yoga is one of forms of Yoga, which leads to a laborious full-body workout while practicing mental stability and concentration.
Power Yoga aims at improving concentration, increasing flexibility and building and toning the muscles. The workout experience of Power Yoga is very intense as it utilizes the entire body. It requires holding a series of poses and the practitioner has to use the muscles of her/his arms, shoulders, abdomen, back feet, and legs which results in toning and strengthening of the muscles. It also burns a lot of calories thereby facilitating the practitionersâ€™ weight loss. As the workout in this form of Yoga requires rigorous moves, toxins are also excreted from the body through sweat. The most important benefit of Power Yoga is that it boosts the immune system of the practitioners there by making them more healthy and attuned with their body.
