I've been dealing with health and fitness over the past decade and I've been writing the subject over the last decade.
One of the interesting areas I met again and again is yoga. he was not too surprised recently, reading an article on a number of things anyone could do for good health, yoga was mentioned.
The surprising fact is not for me, but perhaps for you, the value of exercise, nutrition and stress management, the article of yoga was the subject of its own separate section.
You see, over the years I've learned that yoga has so many potential health benefits and occupies so many health issues that you have to talk about it.
In many other cultures, such as the United States and Europe, and for many people, Yoga is more like a fitness routine … it's a way of life. As such, it includes mental and physical training, meditation, diet and stress reduction. Even the most prominent practitioner of yoga not only enjoys the superficial health benefits of yoga, but seems to absorb other aspects through some form of psychic osmosis.
To a certain extent, they decide to accept yoga practically because of many other health benefits of yoga.
As an independent training program yoga is able to combine both strength and aspects of cardio. Even though there is no heart in the running or similar aerobic exercise, proper movement of the movements requires proper breathing. The body and mind learn how to bring oxygen into the body more efficiently and effectively spread it throughout the body.
If properly and regularly performed, yoga can create a state that is similar or the same as meditation. Meditation and exercise (see previous paragraph) both help reduce stress. If you are the twelve people on earth who do not know, stress is likely to be the most dangerous and most common health risk for almost any health problem you may encounter.
Proper nutrition is also an important factor in good health. While those who really "get in" yoga go to their restaurant, even those who want to use a physical fitness system tend to change their diet for better health. This is probably due to the aforementioned "osmosis" effect. Moreover, it is not uncommon for a person to accept one aspect of a healthier lifestyle to accept other aspects.
Stress is also a factor in over-consumption and bad digestion. Practice in general, and yoga specifically helps to alleviate stress and encourages people to make better choices about their diet and eating habits. The regular practice of yoga also seems to help in the digestive process.
So while exercising a healthy lifestyle regularly, relieving stress and eating properly is a good thing, and all three are in a pack of yoga exercise … which is easier than most people think.
