The word Yoga means, among things, combine or connect.

Modern Yoga combines two aspects of well-being: mindful and rhythmic breathing, and stretching of the body in different postures that allow for better blood circulation and harmony among organs within the body.

One of the reasons Yoga helps in healing the body is that it helps reduce cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is the hormone released by the adrenal glands when the body senses stress be it psychological or physiological stress.

Several studies have shown that even a single session of Yoga brings down cortisol levels in the body. It has further been proven that prolong intervention, such as a month's worth of daily yoga sessions brings down average cortisol levels in the body.

Yoga brings the body back in balance. Lifestyle problems such as poor nutrition in the food you eat, poor meal timings, the wrong type of food, poor sleeping habits all work to bring about modern-day imbalances. This ultimately affects health. Today's system of medicine typically tends to address symptoms of a disease or condition rather than the source of the condition.

Yoga, since it heals holistically, helps addresses a multitude of problems in the body.

If you think about it, it is obvious at one level: when your passions are up and you experience some form of stress, your breathing tends to become irregular. Yoga not only heals from inside but also regulates breathing. By inference, when your breathing is regulated, your thoughts too are and you enter a zone of peace and calm.

Practicing yoga regularly can be a great way to reduce stress, stay in shape and calm the mind. But when it comes to stress relief, not all yoga poses are created equal: Seated postures like a child's foetal pose can induce feelings of calm and help put the mind in a meditative state, while empowering positions like standing forward in an eagle pose can calm the mind while also energizing the body.

Our offering will give you a unique selection of yoga positions that promote relaxation, tension relief and restfulness, all of which can be used by beginners and advanced yogis alike. Watch this space for more.

Have you ever observed your breathing when you are going through different emotions?

For example, when you are angry or going through a moment of passion, you breathe in short bursts. Rhythmic breathing is a mark of a calm mind; laboured breathing is symptomatic of the opposite state.

Over prolonged periods, poor breathing habits can affect the way our organs function. After all, a normal breathing cycle is required for supply of oxygen to the body; breathing also impacts the functioning of the heart which is responsible for blood circulation through the body.

Ask yourself this question: when you breathe in, does your tummy expand, i.e., inflate, or does it go down? It should expand; and it should deflate when you breathe out. Some of us get this wrong, especially if we are trying a few breathing exercises and tend to focus on the breath.

Most of our stressful moments come about when the mind wanders without control. The mind is never at rest except in deep sleep. When awake, the only way to quieten the mind is to give it single-pointed focus.

Here’s an analogy – when a domesticated elephant is taken through the streets for an exhibition and alms collection (common in India), it is common to let it carry a stick or similar object in its trunk. For, without it, it is prone to examine other objects on its way – be they items in road-side shops or household items in houses that it passes by. Likewise, when the mind has something to focus on, it lets go of other unnecessary or disturbing thoughts.

So, merely watching your breath – goes in and out, in and out – is a great way to get your mind off the frenzied running about. Watching your breath means just that – no regulation of breath, no breathing in for two counts, and holding on for a few more counts. While those are useful exercises, watching one’s breath is a great first step to calmness.

Ancient wisdom tells us that by changing the way we breathe, we can change not only our thoughts and emotions but also all consequent action, behaviour and results. Watch this space for more. Soon, we will have on offer a set of simple and effective breathing techniques that you can practice at your convenience and reap immediate benefits.

Have you ever wondered why? It’s a no-brainer that keeping fit is a great way to keep healthy. And, a healthy body is always a great place for a healthy mind to tenant.

Here’s why: While good health is the end-goal, exercising helps reduce cortisol levels – and hence stress levels – on your way to great health.

Research has proven beyond question that exercise does help reduce cortisol levels (Cortisol is the hormone that your adrenal glands release when your body is under stress, be it psychological or physiological).

It also enhances the release endorphins, the feel-good hormones. So, after a round of gentle jogging, if you feel good, it’s not merely psychological, it’s in the body too!

Also, exactly what you do and how you exercise should be determined by how healthy the rest of your lifestyle is. For example, if your job is very stressful, then your exercise regimen must constitute exercises that are gentle and include postures or exertion that you enjoy. Competitive sports should form second priority for such folks.

Keeping fit also increases your immunity. If you have had a lethargic lifestyle, you are probably prone to those seasonal coughs, colds and fever onset.

Once you have a regular exercise regimen, there’s a good chance that your usual illnesses are kept at bay. Ask around and you’ll find your fit friends probably the least susceptible to these common viral attacks.

However, there is always a danger of over-doing the exercise bit. Your body tends to respond well to the optimum levels of exercise. Anymore, and the results show a reversal. Extreme exertion can also lead to excess release of cortisol. After all, such exertion is only another form of stress on the body.

We are readying an offering that would give you a one-minute exercise - every day, for 30 days! Follow these, and you will be on your way to some great health!
