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
We all wish to live in harmony with oneself and others including the environment. But the fact remains that in present demand of our lifestyle we constantly give up on these and succumb to demand of the hour resulting in physical and mental tension such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression and many more issues. This is when yoga is needed. It is not just a physical exercise but also rejuvenates the mind and soul.
Do you know that your own self or words can create distress in mind, and that is when yoga helps. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 80% of yoga users reported reduced stress as a result of practicing yoga. Do you know why?
Yoga is derived from Sanskrit word “yuz” which means to join. Yoga creates the balance between body mind and soul which helps awaken our hidden powers. The human structure is like a ring route, what affects the mind, affects the body and vice-versa. It is the only effective practice that makes our body, mind and soul stronger.
