Ashtanga Yoga – Is it right for you?

Ashtanga Yoga is the type of yoga which was developed and founded by K. Pattabhi Jois. This type of yoga is known as the Eight Limb Yoga which has revolved in Pattanjali's enormous idea. It presented that the path of purification is made up of the eight spiritual practices. The first four limbs that represent Ashtanga Yoga are – yama, niyama, Asana and the Pranayama. These are considered cleansing practices which are externally correctable. The other set of limbs which are the – pratyahara, dhyana, dharana are the internal practies.

The Five Traditional Branches of Yoga [Infographic]

Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are. ~ Jason Crandell Since ancient times, yoga has been compared to a tree with different branches. These branches epitomize a unique aspect of life. However, these branches go beyond the physical practice of yoga postures and breathing techniques. Most people are acquainted with asanas and pranayamas and assume it is all about that. But within the realm of these branches, yoga extends beyond the obvious. Hatha, which is the branch that deals with postures and breath control, is just one of the five branches.

Top 6 Yoga Poses To Help Eliminate Back Pain

by Good News Network Fifteen years ago, I was not acting my age. Since I would recoil from any form of exercise, as well as any green foods, I was overweight, inflexible … and debilitated by back pain. The 40 extra pounds on my frame — plus tight, shortened back muscles and weak abs — left me moving like an 80-year-old version of myself. I started reading up and realized a shocking number of people who suffer from back pain, partly from hours of sitting in a way that flattens the low back curve. (BTW, a Balance Ball Chair System, the very one I’m sitting on as I write this, is a great tool to help build core strength and re-align your spine.) Then, I found yoga. Over time,...

After 60 minutes of yoga, volunteers' levels of the feel-good brain chemical GABA increased by 27%. This short, beginner-friendly plan was developed by Susan Winter Ward, who...
