My personnel experience with yoga

10 year ago, when I was a college student, I and my friend usually goes to jogging in to a park and do physical exercise there. It was our daily routine at the morning as we were very health conscience. In that park we usually watched some people doing yoga by seating in a group. One person was seating in front of them and was playing role of a leader, giving them the instruction and also doing yoga by himself.

At that time my thought was that the yoga is basically done by old people and by those who do not believe in hard physical exercise. The knowledge of mine and my friend was very little about yoga.

My friend was a very curious guy, in his curiosity one day he went to the group leader, as he had just finished his yoga session and asked him what is yoga? And why should a person do it?The answer he had given changed our mentality about yoga. He said a person who is a physically healthier ,strong and have good muscles may not be mentally healthier or strong and a person who is mentally strong may be not physically strong , by doing regular yoga a person will be remain fit in both sense, yoga is art of living.

After hearing such words from him, I became regular practice nor of yoga and join their group.

Some of famous asanas

Sputa Balasana, Ardha Bhekasana, Ardha chandrasana, Anjaneyasana, Bhujangasana,Dhanurasana, natrajasana.

Some measure you should take

1. Never try yoga yourself, you should have instructor or guru or trainer.

2. You can try yoga at anytime of the day but morning and evening is the best time.

3. Choose a peaceful or open area with lot of oxygen available there.

4. Use mate using it, the energy which will be generated doing yoga will not be observed by the ground on which you are sitting.
