Inner and outer harmony
The flexibility, balance and alertness that you gain from doing yoga naturally reflect in your attitude and actions later on during your days and become a way of life with time. The following are some benefits that you get from doing yoga.
- Practicing breathing through some difficult and uncomfortable postures can allow you to develop some skills and let you breathe through some difficult times.
- Stretching and straining your muscles while performing the different yoga poses upto your limits without evaluating your capabilities with another can help you develop an attitude that will make you deliver best and let go. Such an attitude greatly helps in overcoming pressure and stress.
- Possessing physical flexibility enables you to achieve mental flexibility. As a result the vice versa situation also applies and these two flexibilities act together to reinforce each other.
Spirituality imparts inner strength
For me, spirituality is all about living a happier life in the moment, responding to situations rather than reacting, de-programming and connecting with my Self to come with a fresh response to situations that repeat. Yoga and meditation give me just that! – these are the words of Sylaja Kannan, a successful IT professional from Bangalore, India.
The practice of meditation and yoga have proven to be a very powerful combination and a large number of fitness enthusiasts like to finish their yoga sessions with meditation. When the unfit body becomes stronger and the unstable mind becomes calmer and relaxed, medication can impart an intense and deep sense of peace and relaxation.
Spirituality is a source of inner strength that is essential in order to be able to manage difficult situations and to be able to keep smiling. Getting established in the Self, the inner peace spreads around and it makes you a much more responsible person full of sharing, caring and love.
