The truth about Yoga

For some time the science, practice, or lifestyle is present in the Brazilian and American territory, but never before with such proportions, Yoga has previously been considered an oriental science, a Buddhist or practice a healthy lifestyle gained strength in the various offices of psychology and Naturology. However, the ‘jerk doctor’ is that really popularized the search for Yoga. In magazines and newsstands you can find a variety of publications and videos-lessons on the various existing approaches: Prana Yoga, Ratha-Yoga, Bhakti-Yoga, Nada Yoga and many others, each with a specific goal and so also of finding the balance between body and mind. But whatever the style practiced, yoga has become a powerful ally to mental health, because through its practice leads the practitioner to get your sanity while leading the meditation practice. Mistakenly, many people come up to the great spaces of renowned academies or seeking to lose weight, gain muscle, strength, or looking to seek relief for premenstrual syndrome, sciatica, anxiety and depression. A lesson or practice of yoga (as is commonly said) is not a pill or medicine that is used for some time and after use reveals a ‘cure’ to the practitioner. It is similar to the sessions of psychotherapy, therefore, the practice of yoga is procedurally and as you are doing (like a walk in the park, eating habits more healthy) and learn the various postures that the body is able to do ( comprising the various possible ways of thinking about a situation in therapy), and ways of breathing (acquiring new behaviors and attitudes in accordance with the specific cognitive) the student develops a new way of thinking and focus, acquiring the ability to meditate not only in academy or in the spaces (discharge process of therapy, in which the therapist worked with the patient it be your own therapist), but anywhere you want to meditate. However, for this is necessary to understand that yoga is not a pill or a class of aero ‘something’ to lose weight is a practice linked to an Eastern philosophy of life that aims to teach how to live a more balanced and harmonious between body-mind. It is interesting and vital that every student / practitioner / curious study and read with their teachers / masters, originally on the books’ Yogas Sutras of Patanjali “comprising teachings on what would be the Yoga, for whom he was destined for and practicing”. It is that yoga is a process of identification with the modifications of consciousness / mind, enabling greater control of thoughts, intended for those who want to avoid the kleshas to take good quality of life and that through mental practice techniques Yoga can prepare and qualify physically, mentally, emotionally and morally to take a practice called Yoga higher (samadhi). But ultimately, what are these kleshas? These are elements that cause pain and suffering for individuals and considers the existence of five kleshas, ??these being Ignorance (Avidya), Egoism (Asmita), attachment (raga), aversion (dvesa) and Fear of Death (Abhnivesa). Through, for example, the social disciplines (Yamas) Yoga proclaim the necessity of Truth (Satya), Non-Covetousness (Asteya), Abstention (brahmaccarya), Non-Appropriation (Apharigraha) and Non-Violence (Ahinsa). Apart from other disciplines, named as individual disciplines (Niyama) Courses Physics (Asanas), Disciplines Respiratory (pranayama), Discipline of the Senses (Pratyahara), Attention (Dharana), Meditation (Dhyana) and Harmony Plena (Samadhi). In all, the best known and most widespread are the Asanas and Pranayama. So the next time you start doing yoga does not give up, the first classes are really hard, but are not mystical, in contrast, are only the tip of an iceberg of a philosophy of life that have much to add. Understand that religion teaches what man must be, that philosophy makes man understand why to be and that the psychotherapy teaches how to be, will provide an excellent quality of life physically, mentally and spiritually.

Religion And Yoga

A religious rights leader in the US recently sparked off a debate with his comments on the inappropriateness of Yoga for those of the Christian faith. Arguments have since flown fast and thick on all sides over the linking of Yoga with specific religions.

As a proponent of Yoga as the ultimate challenge for the attainment of holistic wellness, I have been extremely pained to read all things related to the matter. For one, I havent been able to fathom the reasons as to why this should even be thrown on the table.

It is true that Yoga originated in India, the same country which produced great religious systems such as Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Indeed, India is one of the two regions of the world which has been the cradle of religious thought, the other being the Middle East which produced Christianity, Islam, Judaism et al.

However, Yoga at its best is a philosophical system which is thought to lead to self-realization. For as long as it has existed, there have been no religious incantations associated with the practice, nor does it propagate the worship of any one supreme figure. It is infact philosophical and not iconic in any way.

The Yogic systems prevalent today are a fragment of an entire pristine system, and are mostly only corporeal; they strive to keep the body healthy through various poses and breathing techniques. The only Hindu connotation I have found evidence of, is the sounding of the syllable Om while breathing, which is also equally construable as a shortening of Amen. Interestingly, Om and Amen have similar meanings and origins as well.

I personally know scores of people of various religious beliefs following Yoga, and who have found no conflict between their religion and the practice. Yoga, which is devoid of any religious connotations is even widely practiced by atheists who would have otherwise shunned it in the name of religious circumvention.

My personal experience tells me that one neednt even go deep into research, because a quick online search will point to the fact that Yoga is linked with environmentalism, healthy food habits, exercise, fitness and mostly good health, but definitely not with any strong religious associations. Even specifically searching for a link did not yield any results to indicate the gentlemans concerns that Yoga is a symptom of postmodern spiritual confusion.

I came across an interesting and relevant blog here which I understand to be a product of a mature and analytical mind.

I would be happy to understand just how practicing Yoga is a shameful act as the US Baptist has claimed. Looking forward to your thoughts, as usual.

Yoga Can Help You Grow Taller Faster

Yoga has become popular among many ages through many countries all over the world since the turn of the century. It has long been established that Yoga provides immeasurable help for achieving a sense of total well-being, get relief from stress and reach levels of tranquility previously sought. But there is still a not-as-popular gain from yoga and that’s growth acceleration! If this were more known, there would be a lot more getting into regular yoga.

Yoga is turning out to be much more than getting or keeping the body shape and size of your dreams, even than bestowing rest and serenity in the hustle and bustle of todays living. Yoga postures contain a great number of stretches and extensions, so the muscles of your spine and related areas of your body get to be prodded to limber up and grow upwards. The basic movements and the smooth movements for centering in yoga are the more widespread information on yoga. The body becomes supple and more flexible and the consistent practitioner acquires the ability and capacity to regulate breathing. It is said (another not-commonly-known fact) that proper breathing, which is encouraged by yoga breathing and postures, helps the body grow upwards.

There is real change wrought by yoga to hasten upward growth through its stretching and demanding poses to be done by practitioner. All of these render a satisfied spine, one that has gained total assortment of movements. This gives the body the resistance against the regular pull of gravity, which brings about a tightening of the spine. Which then deters upward growth.

The extensions caused by the different postures make the spinal cartilage thicker and the joints longer. This adds to the general stature and maintains correct posture, which is essential in growing taller.

Some yoga poses are definitely directed towards this end-result. Sukhasana results in more controlled breathing and tones the hips and lower spine. This is done on the floor with crossed legs, hands on top of knees. With back straightened, the buttocks are pushed to the ground while lowering the knees. Take 5 deep breaths while maintaining that stance and bring your arms over your head. Then lower your arms as you exhale. Do this position repeatedly 5 to 7 times.

The Trikonasana is a bit more complicated, with legs 3 feet apart, the left foot rotated in a 90-degree angle toward the left arm and the right leg 45 degrees inward. With a deep breath the arms are raised to the side and exhale as the face is turned to look along the span of the left arm. This is followed by a deep inhalation and stretching towards the left ankle with left hip leaning down as much as possible. At the limit, both arms are rotated until the left hand is wound up against the inner leg at the calf area, while pointing the right arm upwards. This ends with a deep inhalation while straightening back, and exhaling while both arms are lowered gradually.

These two are just among the particular postures in yoga that can enable one to gain more inches to ones height without any drastic effects or complications.

Yoga Tourism

Yoga Therapy has been hailed the world over. Yuj means to unite and Yoga is Union with the Absolute Being.

Yoga is the Science of Man !

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan
The proper study of Mankind is Man !
Placed in the isthmus of a middle state
A being rudely great
With too much knowledge for the skeptic’s side
And too many weaknesses for the Stoic’s pride
He hangs between !

Yoga is a systematic study of man in his threefold aspect, as Mind, Body and Self. It is the Arts Artium or the Art of all arts and the
Scientia Scientiarum, the science of all sciences. It is based on hoary Indian wisdom and culture and is the art of living a
healthy, contented, balanced and peaceful life.

The Eightfold Path of Yoga is

Yama Conditional personal and social behaviour, according to Yogic Law
Niyama Attitutue under Yoga norms
Asana Physical Body discipline
Pranayama Breath Control
Pratyahara Senses control
Dharana Concentration
Dhyana Meditation
Samadhi Transcendental Consciousness

The first five are called Hatha Yoga, as it is culturing the physique. The last three are called Raja or Regal Yoga, as it deals with the culturing
of the psyche. The first Five represent the Psychosomatic Approach and are referred to External or Bahirangi Yoga. The latter three affects
the psyche and are known as Internal or Antaranga Yoga. It is to be noted that the Internal Yoga cannot be done without doing the External Yoga, as
purification of body is a prerequisite for Self Actualisation. ” Sareeram Adhyam Khalu Dharma Sadhanam”, the body is the vehicle for Redemption !

Yoga and TM trigger the Relaxation Response and relaxes you completely. Gone are the strains and the stresses of relativistic life.
The physical exercises called Asanas combats stress and keeps the body flexible.

The three physical states of Doing, Thinking and Being are highlighted in Yoga. All that we see is nothing but Universal Matter or Energy, the
Adhibouthika aspect of Relative Being. All minds together is the Universal Mind and this is the Adhi Daivata aspect of the Supreme. These are
all the manifestations of the Unmanifest and this is Brahman, the Absolute, transcending all relativities

The destructible aspect is called Adhibootha
He who tenants the body, the Purusha, is Adhi Daivata
Being Absolute is Brahman called
These three are the triune states of Being. ( The Song Celestial, the Geetha )

We can transcend all relativities and reach the Absolute Self, via this great Science of Cosmic Union. This is the union mystica, envisaged by the mystic traditions of all other countries
