While people have been practicing Yoga and meditation for over 5000 years, it is only in the last century that these practices have been adopted by the modern scientific community to advance the progress of well-being and peace in society.
Contrary to common perception, Yogic practices are not just meant to calm an individual on an individual level but can help with overall mental health and keep our mental fluctuations at bay. These fluctuations, also known as vrittis, result from any stimuli our brain processes, be they external or internal.
It’s no secret that we live in an era of unprecedented stress. It can be difficult to find time for ourselves when we have a never-ending to-do list. When we do have time to ourselves, our minds may race with thoughts of what needs to be done the next day or how something could have been done better the day before. This constant mental turmoil has a negative impact on our physical health and well-being.
Fortunately, Yoga is one of the best ways to help combat this inner turmoil, as evidenced not only by studies but also by individuals who have personally experienced the benefits.
What is Yoga?
Yoga is a spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit root word Yuj, which means to yoke or to unite our consciousness to our higher self. There are many different types of Yoga, but the most well-known and popular forms are Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Bikram.
There is no one right way to do Yoga! Different people have different needs, levels of physical fitness and health goals. Some people need more strength, while others need more flexibility or mental clarity. And while some forms of Yoga focus on relaxation, other forms focus on building energy or improving concentration skills.
The benefits of Yoga
Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. It’s a way of life that can help you improve your health and overall well-being. Practicing Yoga has been found to provide many benefits, including improved flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, respiratory capacity, muscle tone as well as emotional stability.
It promotes an awareness of the body’s needs and balances the mind by focusing on breath control. Breathing is central to yogic practice because it connects the body with the mind.
It is important to note that while Yoga can be practiced alone at home or in class, it is best if you have a personal instructor who can guide you through poses and breathing techniques if you’re new to this practice.
