But then i realize, staying in India why i am not using the knowledge treasure of India it’s not only ancient Indian knowledge but a way of life to be stress-free, happy and engaged, No drugs Needed!
Benefits I am getting to be a Yogini
- Auto-focus our mind
With all the jittery action in our brain due to our chaotic work atmosphere, several times, we have a tendency to lose focus on the tasks at hand. If you keep thinking of irrelevant things in the middle of important task then you’re not the only one. Brain requires discipline just like we do and I assure you that being a yogini and meditation will help achieve that.
- Reduce anxiety
Being a Yogini is not just about leaving all worldly needs and attaining enlightenment. It is also about alleviating emotional, psychological and physical trauma. In today’s fast paced world, we need to take some time off and relax. Yoga is not only a structure of relaxation but also a mean to find peace and complete harmony. If an apple a day keeps the doctor away then defiantly my take is “a few minutes of yoga a day will keep stress away”.
- Makes you fit
Whiles practicing yoga, deep, rhythmic breaths help in increasing blood flow and oxygen to each part of the body. This helps in dropping cardiovascular and circulatory system illnesses. It trim down the risk of heart diseases as well. Yogic postures lengthen muscles, stretch joints and actually reverse physical effects of ageing, arthritis, stiff joints and body aches.
A study about “Yoga or Aerobics” carried out by Neha Gothe, a former graduate student at the University of Illinois and now professor of Kinesiology at Wayne State University, and her colleagues. There were 30 undergraduate female students that participated in this study.
“It appears that following yoga practice, the participants were better able to focus their mental resources, process information quickly, more accurately and also learn, hold and update pieces of information more effectively than after performing an aerobic exercise bout,” Gothe said. “The breathing and meditative exercises aim at calming the mind and body and keeping distracting thoughts away while you focus on your body, posture or breath. Maybe these processes translate beyond yoga practice when you try to perform mental tasks or day-to-day activities.”
