Yoga, an ancient practice with origins that dates back to thousands of years in India, is designed to help individuals achieve a more positive outlook on life and a focused, permanent sense of serenity and peace. The word ‘Yoga’ itself means union and union with the divine; however, many people have stripped the spirituality attached to the practice so much so that most people think of it as a group of people exercising in a weird manner. In the meantime, here are sic reasons why you must practice yoga today:
Convenience in time management is essential in keeping both your mind and physical cognizance in tune. Nobody has the time to spend hours on exercising and if you are exercising for less than an hour, you are not optimizing your productivity. Many yoga sequences would take at least 15-20minutes and does not require any equipment just your willingness to get it done. Yoga can be practiced anywhere and anytime.
Compared to other forms of exercise, yoga demands that you slow down and move with your breaths. Just in case you have a history of injuries, it can be dangerous to adhere to hyper-competitive and high impact training. If it hurts don’t do it, rather go for something that helps you relax and at the same time keeps your body and your mind in tune.
Yoga is fun and offers you a light-heartedness that is unlike any other workout. New pose can help with different flows that can help you take a more youthful perspective on your physical practice which in turn, deciphers the way you see the world around you.
Other training philosophies will suggest, you go ahead of yourselves while pushing yourself beyond your own limit. Yoga philosophers suggest that you should be content as you are while you challenge yourself completely. Yoga helps you find the good in yourself while you strive to be better each time you practice rather than, push you beyond your own limit.
One most important quality of a strong yoga practice is its effectiveness. People practice yoga for many reasons, some fo physical fitness, some for mind and emotion control while others for flexibility. It all depends on what you want to achieve. Just in case you want to burn fat or lose weight, yoga is just right for you. Some body weights exercise can be performed in a circuit that is, one after the other and as such helps alleviate any residual tightness or discomfort. These circuits will help minimize soreness, which allows you to train more frequently and ultimately produce best results.
Yoga can sustain you if you let it. While New Year’s resolution and short-term goals are important, we still hope that they will instill lasting changes on our health. However, it’s important to note that every decision we make matters a lot and they all contribute to our well-being. When you practice yoga, you feel a deeper connection with yourself and you start noticing subtleties in your body and your character. Yoga provides you with more insight, and self-discovery that will keep you consistently practicing for a lifetime.
