how to choose the right yoga mat?

I’ve purchased a lot of yoga mats in my life. Some were great for just for short periods of time, but others were terrible from the get-go or fell apart soon after buying them. If you’re looking to buy a new yoga mat, I’ve collected a few tips and pointers

when it comes to choosing the right one for you. With your own health, wellness and comfort in mind, it’s hard to go wrong especially if you consider the following:1- Material : Blue or purple colour is better since I don’t like yoga mats with too much foot slip “because

they are like problem solvers”. Purple colour is so smooth and soft to touch, but it’s not good as blue colour when you sweat a lot during hotter days. Also, yoga mats have many grooves and channels where your feet can sweat, so slip will be a major problem when

using a smooth one. For me personally blue colour is more firm and stable than purple one (better to have flat feet vs.. narrow feet when doing Warrior pose). This is because, during the summer time the temperature is too hot (40 C degrees), so you should use a flat

rubber under the yoga mat to avoid slip such

what is namaste in yoga?

The word Namaste comes from two Sanskrit words, “Nama”— bow and “Asmi”— I am. So it literally means, “I bow to the divine in you.” It is a traditional Hindu greeting or a way of showing respect. This is not just a warm up stretching or breathing exercise.When you perform

this exercise, you should feel that your body is merging with mother Earth, thus becoming one with Nature. One can feel the universal energy through this exercise.Even today, as per its origin, this exercise is performed as prayer, in order to tell “Sun-Deva” about their respect for Him. And hence

in most Indian homes, Namaste Pose is still practiced before beginning Sun-Deva Prayers.During practicing it, there is no need to gain any physical benefit. But a spiritual boon will be derived, resulting in the peace of mind, towards a higher level of consciousness and a better conscious angel.Bhagwat Gita, chapter

VIII verse 18, tells the Yogi or its followers to shun bitter feelings and emotions towards those who have hurt them (eleven times) or made them angry.

can yoga build strength?

The sheer power of the breath literally puts new muscle behind every movement that you perform while doing yoga. Traditional yoga rarely uses weights, with the exception of a few poses that utilize ankle or wrist weights, so you aren’t likely to be tempted to just lift the weights and

work different sets of muscles instead of breathing. Iyengar® yoga emphasizes proper use of joints, so your interaction with resistance bands (and your own body) helps train your body for balance and flexibility.Yoga uses 12 to 20 muscle groups in each exercise and can markedly increase muscle strength. Physiologic arousal

during yoga poses—with increased heart rate and blood pressure—improves the cardiovascular system, while prolonging the duration of deep breathing expands the lungs and engages the cardiovascular system more fully. Breathing and muscle movement classically increase metabolism, something that most people who are suffering from overweight want to encourage.Iyengar® yoga also

employs meditation to release deep-seated emotions. Hence, in addition to building strength efficiently, it may also help you learn how to use this strength when you need it, as well as how to get rid of it when you no longer do.Can yoga help prevent disease?
