Yoga
Introduction: Yoga aims to bring harmony to the mind and body. It is a highly subtle science
that focuses on bringing peace to the body and mind. A healthy lifestyle is defined as the
science of living well. Pranayama, or controlling one's breath, is an example of a yoga technique
that promotes calm and relaxation. Physical postures, or asanas, maintain physical and mental
health over time.
What is yoga?
The practice of yoga is widely practiced as a form of spiritual and ascetic discipline, involving
breathing control, meditation, and body postures. This practice is known as yoga, and it is
believed to improve flexibility, balance, and strength while reducing stress. Practicing the
practice also improves breathing, posture, and circulation. The postures practiced in yoga are
believed to open up energetic pathways in the body, allowing for the release of tension and
blockages.
Modern principles
Yoga evolves with all beings. A great deal of new principles have been incorporated into the
practice of yoga in recent times. Modern yoga is based on these four basic principles.
1st principle: Human bodies consist of many interrelated dimensions that cannot be separated
from each other, affecting one another as a whole.
2nd Principle: Every person and their needs are unique, so their care must be tailored
accordingly to acknowledge their individuality.
3rd Principle: Students are responsible for their own healing. As the student plays an active role
in their journey toward health, yoga promotes healing from within instead of from outside, and
a greater sense of independence is achieved.
4th Principle: Healing is dependent on an individual's mental state. Positive minds heal faster,
whereas negative minds may take longer to heal.
Besides being a way of life, it is also a practical science based on five principles:
1. Exercising properly (Asanas)
2. Breathing correctly (Pranayama)
3. Relaxation is essential.
4. Nutrition and diet are important
5. Practicing meditation and thinking positively
