All about yoga and exercises part 1

  1. Yoga is an ancient Indian philosophy that dates back thousands of years. It was originally conceived as a path to spiritual enlightenment. However, in these modern times, the physical aspects of Hatha yoga have become very popular as a good form of exercise and stress management.

  1. There are many different types of yoga, but each variation of yoga is based on structured postures (asanas) in combination with conscious breathing.

  1. Researchers have found that practicing yoga regularly can have many different health benefits. This including improved fitness and normalization of blood pressure. Yoga is a renowned remedy for stress.

  1. Over time, several yoga practitioners indicate that they suffer less from stress and also have an increased sense of happiness and well-being. This is because the intensive concentration on the postures and breathing acts as a powerful form of meditation.

The asanas

  1. Each posture or asana is held for a certain amount of time and linked to the breath. Generally speaking, a yoga session starts with gentle asanas and eventually progresses to the more powerful or challenging poses. A full yoga session should touch every part of the body and include pranayama (control of breath), relaxation, and meditation. The different postures or asanas include:

  1. Different types of yoga

  1. Most yoga variants we know today have their beginnings in the "Yoga Sutras" written by the sage Patanjali. Ancient Vedic texts and the "Bhagavad Gita" also contributed to the development of yoga. Patanjali outlined the eight limbs or 'aspects' of yoga, these are yama (ethics), niyama (self-growth), asana ( yoga postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (controlling the senses), Dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (union with the divine).

  1. There are many different yoga styles and in different ways, most incorporate these different components.

Iyengar

  1. The yogi, BKS Iyengar, invented this style and opened his first school in 1975: Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute. One of the most distinctive aspects of Iyengar is the focus on using attributes to find the correct alignment of the body. According to Iyengar's official website, Iyengar designed this style to integrate the emotions, mind, and body into this yoga variety.

Ashtanga

  1. Ashtanga is Sanskrit for "eight limbs." Many modern power yoga varieties offered in studios and gyms use aspects of Ashtanga yoga. Students of Ashtanga yoga learn a primary and intermediate range of yoga postures and four advanced variations. The student can only proceed to the next step after perfecting the previous step. Students learn to coordinate their breath with their postures.

Kundalini

  1. Kundalini is the yoga of consciousness. The goal of Kundalini Yoga is to let go of our consciousness and move on to a higher consciousness. This higher consciousness resides in the base chakra (one of the seven mystical energy centers of the body). Students who practice Kundalini yoga often have intense physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences. Partly because of this, yogis recommend that students only learn this style from certified Kundalini instructors.

Bikram

  1. Bikram yoga is famous for its warm environment. Instructors keep the room temperature at 40 degrees Celsius and a session continues for a staggering 90 minutes. Students practice the same 26 poses in the same order, each session. What yogis call a "Hot Yoga" class is not necessarily the same as official Bikram Yoga.

Sivananda

  1. Swami Sivananda developed this easy to follow spiritual form of yoga. A basic lesson includes the Sun Salutation (a sequence of yoga postures for warming up) and twelve basic postures including headstand, shoulder stand, plow, fish, forward bend, cobra, grasshopper, bow, spinal twist, crow, standing forward bend, and the triangle.

  1. Instructors can also add other natural attitudes. According to Sivananda's official website, the motto is to serve, love, give, purify, meditate and realize.

Jivamukti

  1. Founded by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984, Jivamukti Yoga classes offer students an intense series that is designed to encourage spiritual growth. Classes focus on a particular theme to enhance intellectual interest. The five main areas of Jivamukti are the study of yoga lyrics, spirituality, nonviolence, music, and meditation.

Integral Yoga

  1. Integral Yoga teaches students how to be complete individuals by instructing them in all branches of yoga. This includes hatha yoga (physical postures and breathing exercises, raja yoga (ethics and meditation), bhakti yoga (devotion and service to God), karma yoga (service), jnana yoga (study and wisdom), and japa yoga (sound and mantra) Integral Yoga was founded in 1966 by Sri Swami Satchidananda.

The different yoga aspects

  1. People are already more than 5000 years engaged in yoga practice, as evidenced by stone images of various yoga postures that are found in archaeological sites in the Indusvallei. In the centuries following three major principles of yoga emerged: physical exercise, breathing, and meditation.

  1. There are over 100 different variations of yoga. Yoga experts share these variations in several major types of yoga. Each type of yoga is distinctive in the way it defines each of the three main principles of yoga. combines yoga with other techniques, such as academic study or religious training.

Physical Exercise

  1. Lyengar yoga focuses on proper body alignment and precise movements. Iyengar yoga is good for people who suffer from neck or back pain or other conditions associated with poor posture and body mechanics. Pregnant women can quickly develop strength in their diaphragms with Iyengar Prenatal Yoga.

Breathing

  1. The Vinyasa yoga style combines fluid postures with rhythmic breathing. Ashtanga is a popular form of Vinyasa yoga, based on seven movement combinations. Each series is slightly more difficult. This is a fast variation of yoga, you don't have time for adjustments because of the fast progress of movements.

  1. Athletes recovering from surgery find Ashtanga yoga therapeutic because it also requires real effort, such as push-ups and lunges. Healthy athletes such as cyclists and runners get extra flexibility, balance and better concentration through this form of yoga. Kundalini yoga uses rapid movements and primarily targets the abs and lower back to strengthen the core of the body.

  1. Hatha yoga focuses on physical movements and breathing. This is one of the most common forms of yoga. Hatha yoga is done at a slow and relaxed pace. Raja yoga focuses on movement, breathing, meditation and study. Kripalu yoga is a fairly mild variety of yoga, with an inner focus that is perfect for beginners or those who may not be in the best shape. Strala yoga is designed to clear the mind with slow movements while giving you clear control about your breathing.

Spiritual yoga

  1. Bakti yoga not only focuses on the physical, but also incorporates religious devotion into the exercise routine. The person is encouraged to focus on his or her perception of and relationship to a higher power. People devoted to Karma yoga believe that all our movements or work focus on the personal concept of an omnipotent being. Jivamukti yoga, especially popular in New York, is a combination of music, song, movement and spiritual readings.

Unusual Types

  1. Bikram yoga is done in a very warm room to relax the muscles and promote flexibility. There are 26 different poses performed in a 40 degree Celsius room with 40 percent humidity. This form of yoga is therefore not suitable for people with heart conditions, for example.

  1. Tantra yoga adds a visual or spoken dimension to yoga. Tantra yoga strives to represent the invisible consciousness through words, diagrams, and movements. Kashmir Shaivism states that everything in the universe has both masculine and feminine characteristics, in fact, the belief is that these characteristics are so strong that they can never be separated. Emotion instead of intellect is the basis for this yoga.
