Yoga improves your health, gives you mental and physical strength, protects you from injury, detoxifies your body and helps you to lose weight. Yoga also helps you to create a strong and flexible body, glowing beautiful skin and gives you peace of mind. Yoga is often understood as only being a series of asanas (yoga poses).
As such, its benefits are only perceived to be at the body level, and we fail to realise the immense benefits yoga offers in uniting the body and mind through breath. Yoga and meditation have the power to improve your intuitive ability so that you spontaneously realise what needs to be done, when and how, to yield positive results. It does work! You only need to experience it yourself.
Remember, Yoga is a continuous process. So keep practicing! The deeper you go into your yoga practice, the more profound will be its benefits. When you are in harmony, the journey through life is calmer, happier and more fulfilling. You will be living with greater awareness, intuition, better relationships, better flexibility & posture and increased energy.
TYPES OF YOGA
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga as exercise created by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century, often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. He claimed to have learnt the system from his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. The style is hot and energetic, synchronising breath with movements. The individual poses (asanas) are linked by flowing movements (vinyasas).
Jois established his Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in 1948. The current style of teaching is called Mysore style after the city in India where the practice was originally taught. Ashtanga Yoga students are expected to memorize a sequence.
Vinyasa yoga is a form of yoga that emphasises breathing sequences and flowing between different poses. Many forms of yoga include vinyasa by emphasise flowing in between poses and breathing as you move through the poses.
Vinyasa yoga is sometimes referred to as flow yoga. Students flow quickly from pose to pose in a dynamic, almost dance-like movement. Each movement corresponds to an inhalation or an exhalation.
Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques and meditation with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.
Can be practised by everyone, no matter what shape or age. It is welcoming kids, mums and dads, singles, seniors, athletes, people who work long hours mostly sitting, people who have very stressed lives or want to stay healthy, young and flexible, no matter what.
Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. Maybe you even feel emotions in your body, perhaps through a tightness somewhere, or a good sensation. Mindfulness is also noticing what your mind is doing. What happens when you start noticing these experiences? Mindful Yoga is different from many traditional yoga practices in that there is less of a focus on the exact posture achieved and more focus on body/mind awareness. Special Note: If these movements are too challenging, and trying to do them, even with modifications, is painful or harmful, there are a number of good options.
Meditation essentially means to be aware, and to have focus or direction. When you learn to live your life with awareness, to live consciously, and to make conscious choices, your whole becomes a meditative experience.
BREATHING - PRANAYAMA
Pranayama is the 4th limb of the eightfold path of yoga. Prana is the vital life force and energy that runs through our body. This beautiful energy is constantly flowing through us, and through all living beings. Prana (breath) sustaining the body; Yama (control) translates as "to extend or draw out." Together mean breath control (or extension). The breath is the only function in the body that reveals your unconscious emotional, mental and physical patterns. We can heal and transform these patterns once we choose to recognise them :-)
