Benefits of Yoga

Yoga through meditation works remarkably to accomplish harmony and helps the mind work in synchronization with the body. These enormous physical benefits are just a “side effect” of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body and these results in real quantum benefits. How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the confusions and conflicts in our mind weigh down heavily upon us? In fact yoga = meditation, because both work together in achieving the common goal of unity of mind, body and spirit which can lead to an experience of eternal bliss that you can only feel through yoga. The meditative practices through yoga help in achieving an emotional balance through detachment. It has been found that the body which may have started doing yoga being a inflexible one may experience a quite remarkable flexibility in the end on those parts of the body which have not been consciously worked upon…

Yoga Positions

If you want to learn the yoga positions for beginners, you can learn it easily at home or at school where yoga is taught.

1. Maximizing Your Potential

One of the more important tips for beginners is to let go of your ego. In order to fully maximize your yoga experience, you must forget about such things as impressing your teacher and classmates. One of the central ideas of yoga is self-study. To fully study yourself, you must try not to compare yourself to the teacher or other students, but instead, you should strive to maximize your own learning and improvement during each class and practice session.

2. Practice Makes Perfect

Practice your positions often. Yoga offers many benefits to your mind, body, and spirit, and these benefits may be maximized with regular practice on your own in addition to your classes and with your teacher. As a beginner, it is especially important that you practice so that you may see and feel the benefits early on. With yoga, the frequency with which you wo…

Secret of Yoga Posture

Physical Yoga is a combination of different postures. Every pose of Yoga is derived from a natural phenomenon, it is evident from there sanskrit names. People often do not understand a posture because they do not know sanskrit or because original name and meaning of the pose has been changed.

Each Yoga posture has its own secrets which are revealed to us only if we learn about its actual name and its meaning. Each postures name and pose is an analogy to some natural phenomenon. If we understand the name and also watch that natural phenomenon we'll understand how it is to be performed.

Yoga is quiet close to nature and yoga postures bring us close to nature without leaving our present physical location. If we perform each Yoga posture in its intended form then we can feel Yoga in our day to day life. Yoga postures are not like exercise routines which are just limited to physical well being. Yoga postures are much more than that (how much more/less depends on each person).

What is Yoga?

Is it Yoga? Ask Nature for a Simple Answer
Yoga is a art of living. Learning Yoga is learning the art of living. Learning Yoga as a exercise training routine limits its advantages and benefits, because then we have limited expectations and are workouts are also physical without giving any attention to other factors.

Those who know Yoga or are already practicing Yoga must understand that actually all the Yoga postures were based on some natural phenomena. Like some form of animal or plant, there activities etc. Although most of the original Sanskrit names have now been transformed to new names (especially in English).

I am not saying that we should strictly follow the traditional names but what I mean to say is that those names were indicative of posture and how to attain it. Today one has to learn these postures from video or instructors who may or may not be quiet adept in Yoga.

Keeping the natural process of doing Yoga in mind will only help in developing our own insight about the postu…

Exploring Yoga in Everyday Life.

Yoga isn't something new to anyone of us, it is there and it has been there. We are all engaged in some form of Yoga which is either a good Yoga or a bad Yoga. Learning Yoga practically and adopting it in our lifestyle is something that we can do.

Yoga is not a exercise or routine of exercise only. Exercise are just a part of Yoga postures. Actually there are many differences between Yoga posture and exercise. Yoga postures need a different mindset, while exercise needs a sportive mindset.

Yoga is like a breeze and exercise is like a wind (rigorous exercises can be compared to storm). Every Yoga posture needs a slow and gentle transformation without any jerk or force, just like a breeze.

Starting Yoga is not like starting exercises where you have to warm up physically in order to do physical workout. In Yoga you have to warm up mentally in order to stay calm and natural while doing Yoga. Even before you reach these postures one has to learn and understand some basics, which lay the b…
