Beginners Yoga: Early Steps to Art of Health

Yoga is an amalgamation of physical and mental practice which originated from India 5000 years ago, the word is derived from a Sanskrit word yuj which means union. In the recent times, there have been numerous transitions distributing Yoga in different forms but these have a few common techniques intact: breathing techniques (prayanama), meditation (dhyana), postures (asanas), and flexibility. The common trait of the incorporated techniques is the mental and spiritual contentment that you achieve while practising yoga.

Unlike other exercise forms, Yoga doesn't occupy a major time zone in your daily routine. You don't need to hit the gym regularly or become a vegetarian in order to obtain the benefits. You can practice yoga as per your norms; the frequency can range from once a week to twice a day. Although it is suggested to practice this exercise almost every day as yoga increases the connection of the mind with the human body, improves flexibility and enhances body strength. Yoga can be practiced by everyone; even a four year kid, if trained well, can perform this art with utmost ease. People who are new to Yoga can adapt the different techniques by practicing the initial steps that familiarises the body with the various forms.
