To be healthy is incomplete without focusing on body, soul and mind. To keep body healthy there are various options, through exercises, practices, and food plays a critical part in keeping the body fit and healthy. Our lifestyle, food habits, practices contributes to our physical wellbeing.
I had been to this park on a weekend for a Walkathon hosted by our organization. It’s fun as always, and then got an opportunity to explore the greenery with fresh morning breeze and discovered that it’s one of the most happening places during weekends in the early morning. With friends we decided to visit the park every Sunday morning and since then, till date it’s been a practice. But then, off many forms of healthy practices or exercise techniques what people follow there, Yoga is something that appealed to me the most.
“Yoga is the practice of the science called Ayurveda.” There is no single definition of Yoga. Yoga Online defines it as “an ancient art based on harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit.”
On the other hand, Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word, by definition is a "Science of Life" or "wisdom of life" dealing with nature whose origination dates back to as old as 3000 years. This ancient art asserts necessary aspects of healthy living.
Ayurveda is recognized by The National Health Institutes/Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NIH)/ NCCAM) as an Alternative Medicine, a complete medical system (http://nccam.nih.gov).
Yoga trains us to be mindful and at peace with our body and soul. There are many types of Yoga ranging from leisure to vigorous styles, to keep you fit in your way. It’s not just an exercise for your body but also for mind. Practicing Yoga not just improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems but above all healthy and stable mind is a complementary gift that you could enjoy.
Benefits of Yoga

Regular practice of Yoga helps cure several aliments of/associated to sleep. Dr. Rubin Naiman, PhD, an internationally recognized leader in sleep and dream health, On The “Yoga of Sleep”, integrates effective sleep science with time-honoured sacred perspectives, providing us in depth understanding of sleep and its value.
I have personally seen many of my friends switch to Yoga and Ayurvedic practices in combination with Organic diet to address the various issues related to body weight maintenance. Either you are looking to lose your weight or add on kilos by increasing your appetite, it’s always a right choice.
Stress Relief and Creativity
Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation. And when your mind is relaxed, you tend to think more creatively and add value to whatever you do. Practising being relaxed, you can make stress, your positive strength as mentioned by Kelly McGonigal, health psychologist in her TED talk.
Metabolism is directly proportional to your performance throughout the day. The modern lifestyle and the competitive world, expects you to be always positive, energetic and active. And with so much on your mind to excel and perform, metabolism plays a critical and important role. With regular practise, Yoga serves great way increasing your metabolism.
All Round Fitness
How great does it feel when you are described as most lively, energetic, active and a glowing personality? Yoga can help you ‘tone and sculpt’ your body just about as any exercise, but you are only truly healthy when you are not just physically fit, but also mentally and emotionally balanced.
“Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
