You think Yoga is definitely not for you. Those twists, turns, and body poses scare the heck out of you. A lot of people think Yoga is synonymous with exercise and fitness. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Yoga Is Not Just About Fitness

Yoga is much more than a fitness regime. It is a spiritual quest. A lifestyle. A journey to discover yourself. It encompasses complete harmony of the mind, body, and soul. It helps you realize your complete sense of being as you achieve a complete unison of the three elements that complete you: the mind, body, and soul.

A 5,000-year old tradition, art, and science, Yoga begins with You. You become capable of enjoying the best of what life offers you. So, how do you start?….

Begin With Breathing!

If you’ve always been afraid to try Yoga postures, start with simple breathing exercises. Make no mistake. Though they seem simple, these postures are extremely powerful and will help you become calm, balanced, and relaxed in a moment.

Sit comfortably wherever you are before you start your breathing exercises. Slowly, relax your muscles and keep your spine upright. If you cannot sit on the ground, you could even sit on a chair. Practise Pranayam focusing on inhalation and exhalation of the breath. It’s that simple!

A few complete breaths would increase your lung capacity and help you maintain the right posture. Keep practicing regularly for maximum benefits!

It’s All In The Mind

Yoga relaxes and rejuvenates the mind. Too often, we end up spending too little time with ourselves. It provides an escape into the very inner reaches of your mind where you can rest to re-emerge, recharged.

Yoga is very effective in dealing with anxiety and depression since it works on the three elements in unison. While your mind relaxes, the body sees improved blood circulation, and the soul witnesses a transformation that awakens a new you. Yoga Lifts Your Mood! 

Try These Easy Asanas

Asanas are simply yoga postures. Easy asanas including Tadasana also called the mountain pose are best for beginners. The asana is so called, for, it teaches the practitioner to stand steady in the manner of a mighty mountain.

Vrikshasana, also called the tree pose, will improve your balance while also strengthening your legs and back.

Naukasana, or the boat pose, is very helpful to strengthen your shoulders and upper back. It also helps in tightening the muscles of the abdomen, so watch out if you want to flatten your tummy!

Bhujangasana, the cobra pose, strengthens the muscles of the lower back and also makes your spine flexible.

Sukhasana is a comfortable pose for you to practice meditation and Pranayam.

Yoga Is For You!

Admit it, Yoga is certainly for you. It will help shed off the daily fatigue and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Mark our words, there will be no place for stress, anger, and other negative emotions.

It is recommended to follow a regular practice routine to make the most of this ancient science. Your stomach should be empty before you practice it. Though mornings are the best time to practice Yoga, you can follow your own schedule with the food restrictions.

Have faith in the power of Yoga. In the power of ‘YOU’.
