About the Yoga and Health

An overview- Yoga and health concepts are not generally perceived correctly by public today. An analytical look at the goal of yoga shows that it is a holistic way of life leading to a state of complete physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being and harmony with nature. This is in contrast to purely economic and material developmental goal of modern civilization, which has brought social unrest and ecological devastation. Yoga is a mind and body practice with historical origins in ancient Indian philosophy. Like other meditative movement practices used for health purposes are various styles of yoga typically combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga is in fact means union of individual consciousness with the supreme consciousness. It include yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. Intense practice of these leads to self-realization, which is the primary goal of yoga .Yoga can provide relief from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Health too is not a mere absence of diseases. It is a dynamic expression of life –. “Without health, none of the other dimensions of our life mean anything to us. Our work, family, wealth, possessions will mean nothing if we have no health.  Yoga has been the subject of research in the past few decades for therapeutic purposes for modern epidemic diseases like mental stress, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Yoga harmonizes our body, mind, and spirit. Basic Yoga poses correct body alignment, breathing techniques, and relaxation, develop strength, flexibility, endurance, and grace. It helps in reducing clinical concerns such as wrist, knee, neck and back pain, and stress etc.Practice of Yoga addresses the requirements of physical health and inner peace. Yoga, which has its roots in India, has evolved over the last 2000 years. . Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being; yoga helps in promoting a balanced development of all the three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being. They have little to do with the development of the spirituality. As we all know that stressful life is a universal problem now a days that have detrimental effect on mental, physical and psychological health of individuals. In this perspective this very significant topic is selected for discussion and debate on national platform. Actually our whole life and our day to day work can become yoga. Yoga is the science of modern living and should be incorporated into daily life.
