The Yoga is a therapy and a traditional, natural, and alternative ancient technique that provides a number of benefits, virtues and therapeutic properties for the health of those who practice it regularly.

It is a technique that, together, tries to work the union of the body with the soul and the mind, and in turn both with itself and with the universe. For this, the Hindus clearly define what division is for them: a simple fiction, “the illusion of reality.”

That is to say, it is a unique technique that works together with the body, mind and spirit of the person who practices it regularly, helping us to maintain an adequate practical and intuitive knowledge, and it is especially useful to help us discover what we want in our life, what is our purpose and where should we go.

As we indicated at the beginning, we are faced with an ancient discipline, originating from India. There is historical evidence that it has a tradition that reaches 5,000 years, although depending on the place where it is practiced, we find different and different variants.

In fact, there is archaeological evidence dating back to 3000 BC (found in Sarasvati) and the Indus Valley, consisting of carved stones that reproduce some positions that are practiced in Yoga.

In this case, there are many benefits of Yoga, at the same time that it can even be practiced by the little ones to help them calm down when they are very hyperactive, to study better, or even to be able to rest much better.

For example, it helps to improve muscle tone, flexibility and the state of our body in general, in addition to producing an energetic change in our body and harmonizing the body and mind.

But did you know that yoga helps you lose weight? It is a useful technique to help us lose weight when we follow a weight loss diet, which also allows us to achieve our goals because mentally we work on harmonizing the body with the mind. In this way, it is not so difficult for us to follow a strict diet while, for example, we change our habits and start practicing physical exercise.

The Matsyasana or Posture of the Fish helps to regulate the functioning of the pineal, pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands, being also useful to eliminate the stiffness of the cervical, lumbar and dorsal regions.

The Viparita Karani Mudra exercise, or Inverted Pelvic position, is a posture that among other things helps to regulate the thyroid gland, in addition to the sexual ones. On the other hand, it is useful to regain vitality, which is why it is known as “the posture of youth.”

You will observe how the feet begin to project towards the ceiling. Remain in this posture, inhaling and exhaling continuously, concentrating on the breath. Try to stay like this for a few minutes.
