Be smart. If the pace in this video is difficult, go slower. Always take care of yourself. If you're not sure if it's too much, then it is. Don't let your ego push you into getting injured, ever. Slowly, slowly is the fastest way.
Yoga is a powerfully effective therapy which fixes problems in the body and creates stability and peace in the mind. Every single body is crooked; one hip is higher or one shoulder rounds forward more. The more crooked a body is, the more it hurts and won’t function properly. But the more aligned a body is, the better it feels and functions. Yoga done correctly makes a crooked body straighter, which fixes pain and enlightens the mind.
Yoga therapy can assist with the following issues:
• Stress Reduction
• Heart Disease
• Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels
• Immune support and function
• Mental clarity
• Hormonal balance
• Chronic pain
• Mind-body awareness
• Physical/emotion distress
• Chronic Fatigue
In conjunction with the previous list, studies have also shown the benefits of using yoga to treat diabetes, types of cancer, hypertension and schizophrenia. Yoga is used as an all-inclusive treatment to get the body functioning properly once again.
Yoga has been proven to lower high blood pressure and to slow the heart rate. This lifestyle change is currently being studied as a key component to manage certain diseases, such as heart disease, and as an alternative to surgery.
Depending your physical abilities, taking part in a more active practice, followed by a relaxing one, can lead to a deeper state of relaxation than solely engaging in relaxing practices alone. As yoga cleanses the inner body, it also calms the mind, creating mental and psychological tranquility which is beneficial for treating depression, anxiety or the common overly-busy lifestyle.
