FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH
The word ‘Yoga’ literally means union or connection, which implies union with the Supreme Authority. It has a scientific base, and it consists of well-defined exercises from head to toe, whose benefits are marvelous. In simplicity, yoga means control of mind and discipline over the body. It opens avenues to awareness, which is a flame that removes ignorance and ignoble. Yoga is for everyone, men, women, teenagers and all ages. I have seen many active adults, who regularly practice yoga exercises, enjoy excellent health, and look young and vibrant. The only way to achieve and maintain a great body, beauty, and an attractive figure is to do regular yoga poses. You will find Yoga postures in detail in my new book “I AM YOGA.”
The techniques of yoga have been applied for centuries to heal the body, but in the modern age, people talk much about yoga which seems to center around the poses and their practice. Fortunately, the situation has been showing a change now, since more and more scientifically trained individuals associating themselves with yoga and the awareness that it does not mean only the ‘postures,’ has grown. Hath yoga includes mind-training exercises, breathing kriyas, and cleansing activities. It offers a training program for the entire individual and not only weight loss or the muscles alone. It aims at all the aspects of one’s personality and every part of its functions including how the mind works! Therefore, I would advise everyone to practice yoga techniques either singly or in addition to the other unique forms such as Pranayam breathing exercises, and Meditation.
