Health Benefits of Yoga – Both for Body and Mind

Posted on April 30th, 2010 by admin in benefits of yoga | No Comments »

Yoga has been practiced by ancient mystics and philosophers for thousands of years. Most people who hear the word yoga immediately think that this particular activity is simply a way to increase flexibility. In reality however, yoga offers so many more health benefits. Aside from its weight loss properties, yoga is also known to offer certain preventative medicine properties.

There are different kinds of health benefits of yoga. Usually, the benefits received from a type of yoga depend on the kind of yoga a person is practicing. One of the kinds of yoga that is gaining in popularity thanks to its health benefits is laughter yoga.

Yoga is often credited with physical benefits such as better flexibility, stable heart rate, toned muscle and increased stamina. In yoga sessions and class, people are taught to stretch their muscles so that they can be agile and flexible. But for new observers, the benefits of yoga only seem to be physical. Yoga offers more than the benefits to the body. Studies have shown that Yoga also provides key benefits to the mind.

Yoga is the coming together and oneness of body and mind. It is the consolidation of the movement (positions) and the breathing that makes the body tense and relax leading to the calmness of mind and spirit. Effectively done, it makes your whole being refreshed and rejuvenated. Yoga also gives you the ability to shut the noises of the world and get yourself into a trance of silence and solitude.

One of the most profound benefits of yoga is stress management. Imagine a stressful day at work or at home. The fast-paced environment requires you to be constantly worrying about the next thing. With yoga, you can benefit from relaxed breathing with a reasonable degree of control. Such activity allows your body and muscles to relax and think about peaceful thoughts, diverting your focus on stress. Even flexing activities could help a stressed person by loosening the tight muscles. Often when someone is stressed, the muscles are as well.

Many people feel that practicing yoga on a continual basis helps not only physical well-being, but also mental and psychological well-being. Yoga helps to calm the mind, allowing practitioners to feel a sense of inner peace and balance.

Another benefit of yoga is its power to ease muscle and joint pains. Through performing the various poses, you will increase circulation to all of the parts of your body. You will also stretch out tendons and muscles. The combined effect is a decrease in soreness and reduced joint pain. This is especially good for arthritis sufferers and those who suffer from back aches.

One of the most profound benefits of yoga that happens is the capability of putting your internal mind as well as your body into a state of harmony, mainly through the use of meditation. Meditation gives you the ability to clear your inner mind and provides much needed inner peace. The meditation aspect of yoga can assist in taking away stress that is unhealthy from both your body and your mind. There are negative aspects of stress that effects your endocrinal, emotional as well as physical systems.

The Balanced Body Pilates Miracle

Posted on March 28th, 2010 by admin in yoga pilates | No Comments »

A balanced body Pilates workout is ideal for general strengthening and achieving better overall balance. Pilates is known for its benefits when it comes to balance and coordination. There are several reasons why a balanced body Pilates workout helps with these key areas.

Joseph Pilates designed the exercises after studying dancers. And who has more grace and balance than a dancer? A dancer’s movements are always controlled and strong by their very nature, so Pilates movements that mimic some dancer’s moves offer those same qualities.

To give you a balanced body, Pilates designed the Reformer. The Reformer is also known as the Pilates machine, a machine designed to “reform” your body and your muscles. This machine is a precision instrument compete with straps, pulleys, springs and a sliding platform that helps you achieve balance and strength.

A Pilates machine uses your own body weight as resistance. Many pieces of exercise equipment are made this way today, but they’ve taken their cues from the Pilates Reformer, as it was the first with that innovative and effective design.

To help you achieve a balanced body, Pilates doesn’t just provide a workout; it ensures that muscles are worked at every angle and with every inch of movement. You won’t just get the benefit, for example, of a bicep curl that works the bicep muscle alone. In a movement like that, there’s just as much resistance coming out of the “curl” so that the opposite muscle is worked equally.

This method of resistance that targets both the flex and the relax movements makes it possible to get an excellent workout in fewer moves with more benefits, and unlike using free weights or doing other types of exercises, it allows you to achieve a balanced body. Pilates also achieves balance, not just in the size and shape of your muscles by toning them evenly, but it gives you more balance.

Because of the nature of the Pilates movements, people who do it regularly find that their general balance improves. The focus on the core muscles—the muscles in the abdomen and lower back—helps give overall body strength and balance.

This balance isn’t just achieved and used while doing Pilates workouts, either. Most people report that they feel more balance and strength while going about their everyday activities. When the core muscles are strong, they support the spine and back, and can make every movement easier and more balanced.

Along with a balanced body, these exercises can also help you achieve a balanced mind. Like yoga, Pilates seems to work best when it’s done consciously, with awareness. Each movement should be focused on and done with a deliberate intensity. There’s also a focus on breathing, just like in yoga, that helps with the workouts.

These conscious movements and stress on breathing at the right times, deeply and evenly, make it a very meditative exercise. So not only will you get a balanced body, Pilates can help you to achieve a calm and balanced mind, and help to ease stress.
