WHAT IS TRUE ONLINE YOGA

By admin | June 24th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

There is a lot of misconception or incorrect understanding about Yoga especially among online yoga resources. Therefore, it is as important to know what is not Yoga:

1. Only asanas, kriyas or pranayama are not Yoga. We mistakenly believe these to be Yoga. The physical aspect of Yoga is probably only 10% of Yoga. 

2. The following are NOT YOGA even though they may make use of yoga postures, breathing techniques or concentration techniques:                                                                

- Being made to do any intense physical postures while ‘pushing’ too hard.

- Asanas or postures done with speed.

- Asanas or postures done in a sequence without a break.

- Quick sessions done in a group twice or thrice a week.

- Practices done in artificially created extreme climactic conditions like extreme heat, cold or moisture.

- Any rhythmic coordinated activities or practices done with any kind of music.

- Any practice which leaves you tired or breathless or sweating or leave you feeling like you have done a workout.

- Any activity which increase your heart rate and blood pressure.

3. Yoga is not an alternate therapy. Great health is a side effect of Yoga or asanas. However, if there is any ailment, it cannot get cured just by practicing some asanas or kriyas for a few days.

4. Yoga is not a sport nor is it competitive in nature. In fact we should not have any physical or breathing goals, nor should we compete even with ourselves.

5. Yoga is not about twisting, turning, bending. More is not necessarily good for a true Yoga practitioner.

EYE YOGA FOR CHILDREN

By admin | June 12th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Children today are spending less time outdoors and more time indoors in front of computers and smart phones. Eye yoga for children, therefore is important because gaming, studies, social interactions and entertainment have all gone ‘online’.

The entire new generation is growing up in front of a computer. Apart from the obvious physical impact of not getting enough exercise and sunlight for growing children, the other consequence is impaired eyesight.

In a recently conducted study it has been found that 9 out of 10 young adults and children in South and South East Asia are getting impacted by short sightedness. There is a complete lack of physical activity even for the eye muscles. This is primarily due to increased desk bound and schooling activities. There are four solutions which parents need to implement:

  • Get children to spend more time outdoors. They also need to take time out and spend some time in outdoor activities.
  • Play games and sports and spend time in and around nature. All of these will ensure adequate ‘working out’ of long and short distance vision muscles.
  • Spend at least an hour at home doing things other than doodling on your smart phone or tablet. Get them involved in hobbies like craft or cooking.
  • Buy our eye care program and practice regularly for healthy eyes.

BEST STRESS BUSTER FOOD

By admin | June 4th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

When you are stressed, try chilled fruits sprinkled or drizzled with some honey or very little powdered sugar (only if you do not have diabetes) and some cardamom powder. This is one of the best stress buster foods and will actually help you to relax.

We normally tend to opt for comfort foods when we are feeling stressed. This leads us to eat sweets, pastries, coffee and junk food which will only serve to increase the problem. Fruits do not figure on out list of things to do when faced with anxiety. But eating them as explained will help you.

They taste delicious and actually satisfy even junk food cravings. The next time you feel like having a pastry, cut a fruit of your choice, chill it in the refrigerator for a few minutes, sprinkle some seasoning of your choice (if you like) and eat it slowly. So you not only beat stress but also get healthier.

Chilled fruits work even better if they are fruits packed with Vitamin C. These would include citrus fruits, berries and papaya. Vitamin C helps to prevent physiological stress by strengthening the immune system. Taking adequate vitamin C helps to strengthen the bones and muscles and helps to improve iron absorption. More iron means better blood quality. Other good sources of vitamin C are fresh citrus fruits, dark green vegetables and strawberries.
