What Happens To Your Body When You Start Doing Yoga!! This ancient practice is on par with aerobic exercise as one of the best things you can do for mind, body, and spirit. You can do Yoga many places For decades, aerobic exercise—the type that raises your heart and breathing rates, such as running or cycling—has been touted by scientists as the gold standard in terms of the number of health benefits it brings. More energy, improved mood, lower risk of heart disease and certain cancers, better sleep, better thinking, better sex, and on and on. But as it turns out, there may be another form of exercise that does even more for you: yoga. And weight control may be at the top of its long list of yoga benefits. In 2010, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Nursing published a comparative analysis of 81 studies that examined yoga's health benefits and the health benefits of aerobic exercise. The researchers found yoga to be especially effective at reducing stress. This may not be news to those who practice yoga, but even die-hard enthusiasts will be surprised at the number of other health benefits yoga can confer—often to a larger degree than aerobic exercise. The researchers found that yoga outperformed aerobic exercise at improving balance, flexibility, strength, pain levels among seniors, menopausal symptoms, daily energy level, and social and occupation functioning, among other health parameters. Yoga does more than calm you down and make you flexible. "We were a little surprised by the results, " admits lead researcher Alyson Ross, MSN, RN. "We played around with the studies, making tables grouping the studies in a variety of ways (disease condition, health outcomes, and so forth). When we sorted them by exercise and yoga side-by-side, it became apparent we were on to something." What to keep in mind: It's Not Either Or: You don't have to choose yoga or aerobic exercise—by no means does this research suggest that you toss out your walking or running shoes for a yoga mat. Aerobic exercise remains a fun, simple, inexpensive, highly effective form of exercise that confers all sorts of important benefits. And it's important that we all be active every day if we can, taking breaks to move around so we don't spend all our time sitting. Yoga Is Exercise: What is clear from this analysis is that yoga should no longer be seen as something even remotely "fringey, " or even as something that’s only good for improving flexibility. Rather, this research makes it clear that yoga deserves a permanent place at the health and fitness table, alongside other forms of exercise that may be more familiar to most people. To put it another way, if you like yoga, don't feel like you're missing out if you're not also putting in time on the treadmill or exercise bike. “Yoga seems to be able to provide many of the physical benefits of exercise—and then some, ” says Ross. "It behaves as both exercise and meditation." Yoga May Help With Weight Loss: Ross and her colleagues see an especially intriguing role for yoga in the area of weight control, with the key mechanism being yoga’s stress-reducing power. “Evidence suggests that chronic stress leads to changes in food-seeking behavior, including increased consumption of foods high in sugar and fat, which may eventually lead to obesity, ” says Ross. "As yoga provides many of the benefits typically associated with exercise, and is also so effective at reducing stress, ” she continues, “it’s possible that yoga might be a particularly useful weapon in the arsenal against obesity.” Beginners Should Find A Teacher: If you’re considering giving yoga a try, rest assured that you don’t have to be a contortionist to do it. But it’s best to find a class with a teacher, as starting on your own with a video can be tough. It’s important to learn how to do the poses correctly, at which point you can supplement your class time by doing yoga at home. On the topic of frequency, Ross says, “the scientific literature has shown that the health benefits of yoga can be obtained with a single weekly class, but most studies have used a bigger ‘dose.’ So it is logical to assume that the more you put in, the more you’ll likely get out.” Best Yoga Center in Kanpur | Top Yoga Classes in Kanpur | Best Yoga Teacher in Kanpur | Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Kanpur

WHY OUTDOOR PRACTICE IS A BETTER YOGA WAY Indian wisdom is deeply aware that nature/ सृष्टीमाता, has a mind and a spirit of her own. Nature always helps us to remain in the embrace of unity. Universe does not know the separation. Purusha and Prakriti are always one. She certainly knows how to calm our turbulent minds when we trust ourselves into her embrace. Practicing yoga outdoor is a good idea and feels relaxing. Since our bodies are made of the panchmahabhutas the rudimentary elements of nature itself. There is always great healing when practicing in natural elements. Yoga in the open nature, in the mountain region or by the sea brings our clay bodies to its native realm. We learn to let go and recover our deeper rhythm. The open space lures our souls toward the widening our horizons and broadening our perspectives. Yoga by the water falls or on the banks of the river claiming neither shape nor place invites us to become nomads. Zen like presence of the rocks and stillness of the brooks inviting us to get immune to all desires. “Nisarga lives in the womb of the Ishwara, pulsing as one heartbeat.” This oneness of Nisarga and Ishwara invites us to forget out tight schedule, chores and uncertainties fall away and we begin to realise the magnificence of being here and now. The open space introduces us to the unknown mystery of cosmic temple-church-masjid-Gurudwara. Spend one yoga hour in the nature and get everything free: music by the birds, cool breeze and soothing music by the waves at the sea, free oxygen, and many more surprises which nature bestows on us. We become the recipients of the sense of the appropriateness of approach to the unknown, which the sages were well versed with. Nature is always anchored in unified prayer; hence, we with our open heart and mind experience the peace in the open space. Open space helps us save the electricity, and greenhouse emissions, thus helping us live and let others live with minimum and not to fall victim of hoarding the things at the cost of other’s death.
