There are specific yoga poses or asanas that target increasing height, reducing weight from the waist or hips, improving circulation, resolving digestive and respiratory problems, normalizing blood pressure levels and keeping them under control, enhancing cardiovascular efficiency, and increasing physical strength and endurance, to name just a few.

Beyond the more apparent physical aspects, there are numerous spiritual aspects of Yoga. At a basic level, Yoga improves concentration and mental clarity. At an advanced level, it enhances thought control, mind control, and has been shown to help develop psychic powers. At a higher level, Yoga unites one’s self with the environment and the people around us. It helps us understand and experience how we are One with nature. It is a form of enlightenment that makes us feel in harmony with the universe. We become more aware of the lives of people around us and how they are intertwined with our own.

The realization of our spiritual self makes us a better person.

The three main components of Yoga practice are: breathing, concentration, and posture, also known as asanas. All three components work together to achieve specific goals.

One of the most commonly practiced asanas is the Sirsha asana or Headstand Pose. To perform this exercise, first kneel down and place your hands flat on the ground. Interlock the fingers of both hands. Place your head between your fingers, flat on the ground. Raise your back from the kneeling position so that you are on your toes, with your head still on the ground. Slowly lift your legs from the ground so that they extend upward, keeping your body aligned and balanced. Breathing techniques used during the exercise enhance the overall effect.

Breathing practices, known as pranayama, aim to bring more oxygen into our system, thereby improving the efficiency of our body. Breathing techniques are incorporated with various asanas.

Yoga has immense use in our present-day life. From relieving workplace stress to de-stressing ourselves on long journeys, to making us a better person in today’s highly competitive and divided world. It brings harmony to our precariously unbalanced lives and emotional stability to our personal lives. It’s remarkable that dedicating just a few minutes each day to practice this art can bring us immense benefits.
