Yoga is a miraculous practice to keep you moving healthily, and investing just 10 minutes into the practice can change your life.
“The nature of yoga is to shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of the body.”
- Jason Crandell
All of us are extremely busy in our lives these days and it becomes hard to stay on track with our health needs. Justifying fully to the term ‘human race’, we are actually running to meet all the commitments and responsibilities of those 24 hours that each day brings to us. And in the end, we are stressed, tired, overwhelmed, exhausted, and left with absolutely no time for pampering or taking care of ourselves.
To get relaxed, we party, reward ourselves with a new pair of shoes, or meet friends to chill out; all this is for a moment of happiness. But investing 10 minutes of your day for the holistic practice of yoga could transform you completely in more ways than you could imagine.
For the better transformative experience, go for yoga teacher training in Rishikesh- the yoga capital of the world, and immerse deeper into the mystical layers of the holistic practice.
What is yoga and why to Practice?
A holistic practice of the body, mind, and spirit that originated ages ago in the divine land of India, Yoga aims at unifying the being with the universal consciousness. Known as the ancient science of life, yoga puts a holistic approach to the healing of the body and brings life to balance. It is a wonderful practice of asanas, meditation and pranayama that makes you aware of the present moment, keep the being healthy, and prepares you for the ultimate goal of liberation.
10 Minutes a Day
Though initially, it seems difficult to take out time to stretch, move and bend, but gradually your body gets in the way. Yoga is for those who want to acquire complete wellness at once and make a big change in life just by investing 10 minutes of their 24 hours. It is advised to practice yoga in the morning to tune your entire being for a fruitful day. Even during yoga teacher training in Kerala or at the other yogic lands the schedule begins early in the morning for a rejuvenating start to the day.
Where to get started with?
The 10 minutes of the yoga practice needs to be crafted well to imbibe all the essential practices of yoga, so start with:
Stretch Away the Laziness: The first thing of your yoga regime is to wake up early in the morning like by 6 am. Then stretch the body to send the laziness away and activate the internal body functioning. Clear the bowels to get yourself ready for the 10 minutes of yoga session.
Start as you Intent to Continue: Change in routine is difficult, but if you’re ready to go through this transformation, begin with the intention to continue. It is about retraining your brain and amidst the process, you can see the damage from the top.
Imbibe Positive Energy with Pranayama: Pranayama session takes around three minutes, and you end up feeling positive and energised day long. Practicing deep breathing makes you aware of the breath and you sync it with the movement for greater benefits. Breathing rightly calms anxiety, lowers blood pressure, makes you mindful, brings the consciousness of the present movement, and reduces stress and uplift mood.
Asana Set for Quick Practice: Invest three minutes practicing revitalizing Sun Salutation, for enhanced body capacity to absorb and use the vital energy from nature. Then practice easy and quick yoga poses including Balasana, Tadasana, Badha Konasana, Matyasana, Trikonasana, Vrikasana Adho Mukha Savasana, Dandasana, Savasana and more.
Relax with Meditation: With three minutes of meditation practice, end the session with a feeling of relaxation and happiness. Practice meditation at any time of day when you feel stressed, anxious or low in mood or energy. Along with that, consume balanced and healthy food, as it complements the yogic practice.
Squeeze in just 10 minutes of yoga practice a day, and trust us it turns to be worth investing your time.
