admin
Yoga pants, yoga mats, yoga this, that. These days yoga is fashionably popular and the market value of the global industry is in the $Billions (USD). As the presence of yoga spreads internationally it makes you wonder: is this ever-increasing interest just another trend that will pass with time? So can we say that yoga is for everyone at any age or stage in Life? Or is there something drawing people to yoga that lies beyond targeted advertisement and healthy consumerism?

The Age of Social Media and yoga

Truth be told, yoga has been popular for quite some time. However, over the last decade visibility and accessibility to yoga have increased dramatically. It happened due to social media and the instantaneous flow of information it has created. In all regions of the world, enter the term “yoga” in a search engine and you will yield unending results. But, is an Instagram selfie of your favorite celeb with their private yoga instructor really enough to keep you going back to yoga class?

What is Yoga?

Trends depict yoga as a form of exercise that is used to strengthen and relax the body but there is far more to it.
Based on the Sanskrit term yuj (to unite or integrate), yoga is an ancient wealth of knowledge. And that systemically creates harmony in the mind, body, and spirit through practical philosophy, breathing techniques (Pranayama), physical postures (Asanas), and meditation practices. Is it possible then that 1000 of years ago this discipline was intentionally designed to keep you coming back for more?

Benefits of Yoga

Scientists and medical researchers have concluded that regular yoga practitioners experience:
  • improved brain function,
  • enhanced immune systems,
  • better sleeping habits,
  • reduced anxiety,
  • increased ability to tolerate stress.

With all of these proven benefits, it seems living a healthier, happier life is what actually brings people back to their mats. After all, health is wealth.

Here to Stay

Taking all that has been said under consideration, it is fair to say that yoga isn’t going anywhere. Unlike most contemporary crazes, yoga is built on a foundation of wisdom and truth that date back well before the common era. So this so-called fad is no fad at all. Keep calm and practice yoga.

Because Yoga is a whole life journey and also a discipline, it is not only about performing asanas or postures. The full Yoga practice is a concept which the goal is the purification of the body and mind in parallel.

Such purification brings us harmonic balance including all the activities in our life. From the well functioning of the systems within our body to a deeper understanding of the our mind to create more space and experience mental peace, tranquility,  then more genuine and long term happiness.

The Importance of A Healthy Sleeping Process

In order to have a quality rest time, it is essential in the first place to make some gap in our mind, emotions and consciousness by the moment we go to sleep. It is likely that the mind would stay  sharp and clear even by the moment we wake up.

As well as it is recommended to make some space in the mind in the moment we go to sleep. You can do it by keeping aside certain worries, avoiding the contact with the phone and similar devices. It is also essential to have some space in the stomach, in other words it is important to have an early and light dinner that would be easier to digest.

 

Kriyas (Purification of the body)

The purpose of these cleansing exercises, according to the nature of our body, is to help with the elimination of the toxins.

According to the classical Hatha yoga knowledge, there are six main Kriyas  (Shat Kriyas):

  • Neti: It implies different kinds of nasal cleansing.
  • Dhauti: A method to clean the upper digestive system.
  • Nauli: It is the strengthening of the abdomen as well as the purification of the digestive system.
  • Kapalabhati: The cleansing of the respiratory system: from the nasal cavities to the lungs lungs, as well as mental impurities.

Such cleansing or purification get a stronger effect on the body if we apply them on an empty stomach as well as our yoga asana practice, if we  have to do it early morning. Otherwise it is better to leave a gap of three to four hours after having meals.

Ahimsa: Taking Care of Our Body, Practicing Non-Violence

Since all yoga practices lead to the path of liberation through the philosophic principles such as respect, solidarity and devotion. In the asana practice it is applied as the term ‘Ahimsa’ (nonviolence). It means to establish a relationship with our body with the purpose of having a deeper understanding according to what it needs for maintaining the harmony within. To be aware of certain physical limitations or injuries, it is necessary to warm the body up previously to the performance of the asanas, as well as increasing the capacity to be able to perform more advanced ones.

 

To Be Present is To Be Connected With Our Own Nature:

  • Before the practice it is very important to let go any thought from the past or the future. So we can connect with the present moment and link with our body.
  • When we are linked with our body, we can deepen our yoga practice by connecting to the breath with every posture. Which means that we are able to unify the inhalation- exhalation when we enter to the posture, when we are in the posture itself and finally on the way out of it.
