What is Yoga?

Yoga is one of indias great gift to the world, the widespread acceptance of that gift- with concomitant diversity - is sometimes incomprehensible to traditional Hindu practitioner of Yoga.Yet the sheer number of people practising yoga outside India suggests the need to define yoga both by its historical roots and its modern adaptations.

Yoga is a definite means for Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development because yoga improves strengths and develop both the physical personalities. Through yoga one can discipline the body and mind. Yogasanas improve the integral personality. We can call yogasanas subtle exercises which take care of external and internal development of the human body.

The digestive system, respiratory system, the spinal cord and all the nerves and dormant glands begin to function normally and in correct order. Different types of exercises are required for the healthy functioning of the muscles, bones, joints and all the nerve centers.

Practice of yoga helps us in so many ways:

  • Calms the mind through restoring mental agility
  • Decreases nervousness, irritability and confusion.
  • Helps detoxify the body
  • Revives attention and willingness
  • Strengthens the whole body

  • Helps reduce stress and mental fatigue

The daily practice of yogasanas reduces muscular and nervous tension rectifies and improves the digestive system, removes lethargy and laziness and keeps one active and efficient throughout the day. Asanas guard against the inner disorders of the body and provide strength and health.

The benefits of yoga are felt in a profound yet subtle manner. Here, we look at some benefits of yoga practice.
