They are not film stars, mere idols of adulation. They are great inspirational figures whose example is there to be followed. They act as our role models today.

Questions Beginners Often Ask Before They Learn Yoga

What benefits can I get from doing yoga?
Yoga offers you rejuvenation and improved health, more energy and joy in life. Greater flexibility, sound sleep, improved digestion, peace of mind, clearer concentration, better balance and more smiles.

These are just a few of the gifts that await you. A regular practice of Yoga will influence all aspects of your being; it is far more than physical fitness. It is a profoundly integrated experience of health and renewal.Feel your body heat up;  muscles starting to release their grip on your bones. Shoulders and neck begin to relax, you become one with the rhythm of your breath and the day melts away.

Can I do Yoga if I am not flexible? Yoga is not intended to be a practice to get you ready for a Cirque Du Soleil try-out.  Yoga is about accepting your limits and respecting the boundaries of your own body  Since we all have different body types and some people have been doing yoga for decades it can take a long time to do the full- expression of the pose.  Yoga is ultimately about awareness of our selves and restraint.  We can honor the limits of our bodies when we do not push ourselves past our edge.  When we reach our physical or mental limit, can can simply be aware of that.  Yoga is about open-ness and feeling connected on a deeper level to our own bodies, whether that is touching our toes or never touching our toes. 

Ultimately, Yoga is about acceptance and detachment to results.  The poses will not be accessible to all body types due to fitness level, bone structure, past injuries, height, age and weight.  Being aware and present in our bodies is the ultimate gift we can give our bodies.

Is Yoga just an exercise practice?  Yoga is a set of mental and physical practices that lead to self-realization.  In the West, Yoga has been associated mostly with physical postures that can lead to a more supple and toned body as well as stretches that are relaxing.  Yoga includes follow many mental and physical restraints such as non-greed, non-stealing, and detachment to material possessions, status and results. 

It does require a high level of discipline, commitment, awareness and self-restraint in order to be in compliance with the many limbs of Yogic Philosophy.  Meditation was one of the the original practices that helped to cleanse the mind of ego-based wants such as these in order to gain self-mastery and awareness.  Poses were later added in order to help with the breath work so that one could sit more comfortably for a long time in the meditative poses.  Yoga encourages leading a clean lifestyle with an emphasis on eating foods that are clean, nourishing and leave us feeling full of vitality.  Evolution and enlightenment is a possible result of a life of contemplation, compassion, awareness and purity.

Is yoga a type of religion? Yoga is not a form of religion. Yoga is a more internal path and it is not necessary to do certain lifestyle practices in a group or even at certain times of year in a ritualized fashion. One is frequently encouraged to question and to do a deep process of self-inquiry.  Yoga also holds that our consciousness is closely related to our subconscious in such a way that by exerting superior control on the conscious states, we can control our subconscious one in which are contained deeply ingrained values, beliefs and behaviors that may not be healthy or positive or beneficial for humanity.  Since we often think and act in ways that we know are not positive or healthy, we often feel powerless to change.  Various yogic practices help to gain the necessary awareness that gives us access to our subconscious.

Is yoga just a set of poses and stretches? Yoga is not just a set of physical poses.  Yoga does not refer just to the poses as is commonly thought in the West.  Yoga is a series of lifestyle practices that include diet, hygiene, yoga philosophy, breath-control techniques, meditation techniques relaxation techniques, awareness techniques, self-mastery techniques and physical poses that lead to self-realization, compassion and evolution.  Yoga philosophy emphasizes non-judgement, acceptance and compassion at its core.

Meditation Techniques Beginner’s Guide

Meditation Techniques: Beginner's Guide

Our soul, just like our body, needs food to grow and perform efficiently. We try to get our hands on every possible luxury of life so that we can lead a comfortable life. But besides the availability of several material resources we constantly face cacophony because we fail to pay proper attention to our soul which results in dissatisfaction and frustration. Meditation teaches us to strike a balance between our internal powers and external environment. A person practicing mediation is in a strong position to control his thoughts and emotions to use them positively for his wellbeing.

Though meditation is a healing process of internal structure but it's not something that must be postponed until one observes the signs of aggravation and agitation in him. You can devote a certain part of the day for this spiritual exercise. Meditation reveals the strengths and weaknesses of your inner being and introduces you to a mechanism that can bring peace to your fast-paced life. Confusion and uncertainty about your own self and regarding fellow beings diminish, which can practically help you to maintain social contacts more confidently.

On contrary to the general perception that people hold regarding the complexity of meditation, beginning is fairly easy. In this era of urgency and rush, you have to find time for your inner self. To empower your awareness and realization capability, you can initiate this soothing process easily. You'll notice a revolutionized life once you get to know the power of meditation and the way it can enlighten your intricate problems.

You don't have to join a healing centre for this. Try this at home and reap the benefits of self-realization. Find a corner in your house where you can sit peacefully and will not be distracted by noise or any other activity. If you have a large sofa or a chair where you can sit at ease with legs crossed, sit there in a comfy posture. Otherwise sit on carpet. Try to forget every appointment and engagement that you have for the upcoming days.

You have to disconnect yourself from the outer world in order to listen to your soul. Close your eyes and all other receivers that can possibly distract you. The moment you close your eyes, you move one step closer to your inner self. When you save your energy and dedicate it solely to meditation, a new sense of unveiling your deep down realities surrenders you. Focus on what your soul shows you.

Try to bring peace in yourself. Examine your thoughts that come through your mind and pay attention to internal mental activities. Thoughts that were pushed to subconscious begin to clarify and more explicable. You must indulge your thoughts into some kind of rhyme. A Sanskrit verse is suggested 'amaram hum madhuram hum' which reinforces bliss and immortality.

After this spiritual process, don't spring to world abruptly rather make a slow end. Touch your face with your hands to provide warmth. Make meditation an integral part of your routine and try it twice a day, especially at the beginning and ending of the day.
