Questions and Answers About Yoga

What is Yoga? Yoga is an ancient philosophy that came from India that promotes personal health, grown and wellness. It doesn't conflict with any religion but has impact on our spiritual path. Yoga is not just lying around relaxing, a religion, contortionism, staring at a candle and breathing incense, and not just for young people who are thin and supple. It does need concentration, focused breathing, and discipline. A greater union of mind, body, and spirit is the result of practicing Yoga and anyone regardless of age, experience, body type, or physical abilities can practice Yoga.

Hatha based or alignment Yoga has been around for over 5000 years and becomes increasingly popular with many medical practitioners and therapists as a treatment for a large variety of illnesses. The benefits of Yoga practice are many and include more flexibility and strength, cardiovascular health, helps in healing from injuries, creates mental clarity and focus, and creates emotional balance in your body.

More importantly, it's an all in one practice. There are many different types of exercise. There are various exercises for different health benefits. These exercise options can be ended when you start practicing Yoga.
1. Weight training for strength.
2. Jogging or aerobics for cardiovascular workout.
3. Tai Chi for developing a sense of balance and harmony.
4. Stretching exercises for flexibility.
5. Meditation for relaxation and peace of mind.

Yoga is more than stretching and relaxation techniques, it's the perfect challenge for your mind and body.

Who should practice Yoga? Anyone from the people who currently get no physical exercise at all to Olympic athletes can benefit from Yoga. Purna Yoga is a careful alignment of your body as you hold poses and leads to growth physically, emotionally, and mentally. Yoga does require work, determination, and practice. If you are looking for a quick fix or just temporary relief of surface symptoms, then you will probably want to look at another form of exercise. If your goal is to regain vitality, health, and vigor; and feel stronger and younger, consider Yoga as your exercise of choice. If you are looking for a form of exercise that is balanced and can be started by anyone over seven, Yoga may be for you. If you want a program that gets more challenging as you advance, can start no matter what condition your body is in, Yoga should be your choice.

You can start looking for a Yoga studio, but first you need to become familiar with the different types of Yoga, so you will know which one to ask about when you begin phoning studios. Remember there is several different types of Yoga and different styles have been developed over the years. You can choose your Yoga practice according to your fitness level, which are just for exercise and which is for the union of the physical with the spiritual.

Therefore, whatever your reason for looking into the practice of Yoga, be assured that you will benefit from the discipline, breathing techniques and the physical exercise you get in practicing Yoga.

For Some People, Learning Yoga on CD-ROM is a Stretch
Dec 26th, 2010 by Aldouspi

For Some People, Learning Yoga on CD-ROM is a Stretch

As if to lend weight to my contention that your computer can, in theory, teach you anything, along comes a pair of CD-ROMs called Wellness Yoga and Shiatsu Relaxation.

Lithe young women demonstrate these ancient Eastern techniques while mellow-voiced narrators speak over somnambulant music, the better to relax you and make you all well.

Most of us are familiar at least with the concepts of yoga, its slow stretching exercises and its often almost unattainable physical positions. Wellness Yoga is a nicely designed program that packages 74 asanas, or positions, into several packages such as the Quick and Easy Course, the Beauty Course and the Health Course.

The program consists largely of what it calls procedure screens, in which each position is demonstrated in one window while described textually in another. A narrator reads that same text aloud. In addition to the usual tape-recorder buttons to pause, stop and restart the action, there is a graph that displays the approximate duration of each segment of the routine.

The practical difficulties of using this CD-ROM are fairly obvious. The manual, dragged kicking and screaming into English from its Japanese roots, advises the user to First practice forming the pose while watching the screen and try memorizing the whole procedure.'' This, unless you have a 24-inch monitor or keep your monitor on the floor, is likely to be difficult. Clearly the actual learning of the poses could be more readily done with a videotape.

On the other hand, you can hunt around in the CD-ROM, choose from the positions you want to learn, and collect them into personal groups. And maybe you've got a really big monitor, and a cordless, long-distance mouse.

This is a nice program, well-made and instructive. My only complaint is that it does not emphasize clearly enough that unless you are as slender as the model executing the poses, you are not going to be able to do many of them -- the Crow, the Heron and the Frog, for instance -- correctly. On the other hand, we can all do the Corpse.

Shiatsu Relaxation, which teaches a massage technique clearly related to acupuncture, is another kettle of fish.

The theory is that rubbing, kneading or poking specific points on the body, called acupressure points, will make other parts of the body feel better. I am not prepared to argue that premise, but the entire procedure seems shiatsu yourself is not clear, either; the program initially suggests you find some of your own more accessible pressure points, but they are not all available to your own hands and all the demonstrations show one person ministering to another.
