Benefits Form Yoga
Yoga is a healthy way of life, that originated in India. Now, it is believed to be a form of science accepted all over the world. Western culture is also accepting it as a healthy form of scientific exercise.
Although the origin of yoga is obscure, it has a long tradition.
Yoga for a common person contains the practices of Yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, kriya, and meditation, which are helpful to keep oneself physically fit, mentally alert, and emotionally balanced.
This ultimately prepares the ground for the spiritual development of an individual. The main emphasis of the present yoga curriculum for school-going children is to develop their physical fitness, mental development, and emotional stability.
Posture or asana form an important basis of this curriculum. These have, therefore, been given more weightage. Though other yogic activities have also been included in the curriculum.
What is Yoga?
The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root Yuj which means ‘join’ or ‘unite’. This may be taken as the union of body, mind, and soul, and is used in the literature both as an end as well as means.
As an end, yoga signifies ‘integration of personality at the highest level. As means, yoga includes various practices and techniques which are employed to achieve the development of such integration.
Good health is the right of every human being. But this right depends on individual, social and environmental factors.
Along with environmental or social factors to a large extent, we can develop a better immune system and a better perception of ourselves so that other conditions do not affect us adversely and we can achieve good health.
Health is a positive concept. Positive health does not mean merely freedom from disease, but it also includes a jubilant and energetic feeling of well-being with an amount of general resistance and capacity to easily cultivate immunity against specific offending agents.
