Yoga (union) is a physical and mental discipline based on the belief that the universe and human beings form a single entity, and that the welfare of the people depends on their relationship with their outer and inner worlds. Through a series of physical exercises and breathing, the practice of yoga can restore and maintain the balance of the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions.
A yoga session can be approached in very different ways, but the aim must always be the same: the elimination of mental disturbances. The session must follow a clearly defined structure: toning, asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing) and relaxation. Each and every one of these components fulfills its mission and must be therefore scrupulously respected.
Yoga works on the Chakras, which are energy centres that are located in certain parts of the body. Working on these centres, you can harmonize the area and allow energy to circulate and flow. Consequently, you will experience a pleasant feeling of wellbeing.
Stress, insomnia, lack of concentration, back pain, allergies, back pain, migraines, constipation... These are just some of the disorders or diseases that may find relief in yoga. However, it is important to stress the idea that yoga is not only a crucial ingredient in the recovery of health, it is also responsible for maintaining and increasing the physical and mental wellbeing of the individual.
Regular practice of yoga helps reduce the adverse effects of the habits of modern life, such as stress or anxiety. Thanks to yoga, our soul is relaxed, calm and serene, allowing us to solve problems from a more positive outlook. It also increases body strength and retards aging. Muscle tone is increased, which leads to greater flexibility and better looks. All these benefits help to increase confidence and courage to face the toughest challenges.
The risks associated with the practice of yoga are the same as those linked to muscle stretching exercises. In the specific case of yoga, depending on the condition of each individual, some postures will be performed more carefully or will even be completely avoided.
It is not recommended to practice yoga on an intensive basis during an illness or an injury recovery period.
We must approach yoga as a tool to improve our lives. We should avoid the competitive approach of sports if we want to achieve positive results and prevent injury.
