I learned yoga from my mom. She is 55 years old but looks more beautiful than any other young woman. Mum never had any health scares that comes with the her age and she owes it to yoga. People like her are perfect examples of how yoga improves one’s life. It not only brings a good change to the person practicing it, but also beautifies the surrounding he or she lives in.
It will spread your positive vibe towards your friends, family, kids and even society. A happy person can make the entire family cheerful. Such families can make a happy society. I’m an advocate of yoga and I strongly believe that it not only helps you maintain your physique but also provides you with a happy living.
Yoga affects each and every aspect of your body; be it waist, thighs, face or internal body organs or mechanisms. It is highly effective and you don’t have to waste any money by enrolling into those expensive gyms.
If you are starting with yoga, make sure you start with a basic asana.
It is perfect in shaping your upper, inner thighs and buttocks. If you want to target these areas then try it out. This stance strengthens your core by stretching on the sides of your tummy, it also burns off those flabs.
Steps to follow:
- Stand on a yoga mat with your feet joined together.
- Put both hands above the head and join your hands together.
- Stretch your hands as if you are trying to reach the ceiling.
- Bend sideways from your hips by slowly exhaling, make sure to keep your hand clasped together the whole time.
- Keep your elbows straight and do not bend forward. Try to feel the stretch in your fingertips and thighs.
- This stance will also affect your stomach and back muscles. Try to hold this pose for a good amount of time then inhale and restore the original stance. Now repeat these steps with the other side.
If you are comfortable with this asana, you can move on to others.
Please note : This particular asana should be avoided by individuals with spine injury, high blood pressure or digestive disorders.
