Hello world!


Yoga and Health is your website for information and education about how Yoga can help you improve your health.

Background

Yoga dates back 5,000 years to India. About 2,000 years ago, a sage pulled together the basic principles of yoga in the “Yoga Sutra,” which is still used as a guide for modern yoga practice. The name “yoga” originated from a Sanskrit word meaning yoke, but the interpretation is often expanded to “union” to represent how yoga incorporates different aspects. Yoga goes beyond the physical aspects of the exercise to guide your growth spiritually and mentally.

Basics

Yoga consists of low-impact poses called asanas, which occur in a particular order or flow. Most poses are held for a certain amount of time before transitioning into the next one. The goal of the poses is to open up the body to allow for free-flowing energy, according to Yoga Journal. The average yoga class mixes in different poses, including those on the floor and standing asanas. An advanced yoga practice might include inversions, such as headstands or handstands. Each pose engages the sense of balance, strength and flexibility. Breathing and being in the moment with each pose also are emphasized.

Benefits

Yoga exercise improves the physical condition of the body. The moves strengthen the muscles for a more toned look, and overall balance improves because of the balance required to do most of the asanas. Your body will likely become more flexible the longer you practice yoga. The physical aspect of the practice helps control or lose weight, and regular practice also helps reduce stress levels for an overall feeling of wellness and calm.

There are so many yoga poses, yoga breathing exercises and styles of yoga that a beginner will not know how to start yoga practice.

A generalised sequence of one hour is sufficient. However, people who have spare time can spend up to one and a half hour on yoga daily. For beginners, it is recommended to start with both yoga asanas as well as paranayama. Best time for doing yoga is early in the morning. Theoretically, yogis do not take a weekly off from yoga practice, but you can do yoga at least 5 or 6 day a week for better results.
