Yoga - The combined balance of body and mind.
Through this blog, I will attempt to write several posts to share what I have learnt and experienced through Yoga. This is the first blog in the series.
After years of practice and study of Yoga, I have come to realize that Yoga is as widespread as life. We start with Asana, move towards meditation and gradually see the visible effects on emotions, thought process, reactions and lifestyle.
Yoga is a journey, not a destination
A journey that starts as an infant (in practice) and teaches a new perspective of improvement every day. The ultimate objective is to be a better person than what we were yesterday.
What is an Asana?
An Asana is synchronous flow of physical movement and breathing rhythm. When a Yoga practitioner is fully absorbed in an Asana, it almost feels like the wind is the instrument and their body is producing music with movements.
Is there a perfect Asana?
An exquisite gift that Yoga gives is – the ability to see your body’s inner state of perfection. Every practitioner’s body alignment may visually look different, but s/he will get the same benefit in practice if physical movement and breathing is in harmony.
Taking a leap of faith, everyone’s endowment in life may visually look different. But if we are in sync with the fact that what has been given to us is perfect for that moment of time, we will be in harmony with the universe, and a lot more at peace.
The effect of Yoga on lifestyle
As an age-old discipline that combines physical, mental and spiritual practice, we all know that Yoga purifies the body from within. Practice of Yoga gradually leads to desirable shifts in lifestyle. As the internal organs become healthier and the mind calm, the body automatically craves for simple and pure food.
In next blog, I will share more about why its critical to integrate Yoga into our daily lives in today's environment and age.
Till then, eat healthy and stay happy!
