WHY YOGA EXERCISE?
There are lots of different forms of yoga, that are practised today. Most systems have been around for 100's of years, and others are just modern versions of these.
Some involve dozens of complex movements, and others just a few key stretches. But, whatever the differences, every system states that yoga practise can improve your health, fitness, and well-being.
Why choose yoga, and not some other system of exercise?
Well, many forms of exercise can be of benefit to your health, if practised in the right way. A 20 minute exercise routine, 3 times a week is the minimum that most experts advise. This has to include warm-up, stretching, strength, endurance and stamina training, etc.
Over-training will cause more harm than benefit!
Some people become obsessed with exercise, to the point where it is like a drug to them. You can see this in many competitive sports where people push their bodies beyond their limits. This often leads to a variety of injuries and massive disappointment.
Some exercise routines are designed to develop useful skills like martial arts. These teach discipline, respect, confidence, and self defence, along with the health benefits of training regularly.
But, again, there is the risk of over-training, which does not benefit your health. Training too hard, in any system, is likely to do more harm than good. After all, the real aim of exercise is keep you in good condition.
I recommend a simple form of yoga, practised every day to exercise the whole body, mind, and spirit. Yoga has the added benefit of exercising the inner organs, and balancing the energy centres (chakras). This is what makes it one of the best exercise systems available.
So, what system of yoga will you practise?
It all depends on how much time you have available. You may want to go to yoga classes and practise with others, or like me, practise alone. By practising in a class, you have the benefit of an experienced teacher to adjust your movements and improve the form.
But, by practising alone, you have the added benefit of deciding when, where, and how you exercise.
Personally I practise a simple form of Tibetan Yoga, which takes around 10-15 minutes a day.
In fact, my daily routine takes around 60 minutes and includes... tibetan yoga, aiki exercises, chi kung, and sound meditation. I designed this routine to exercise every part of my body, mind and spirit.
Actually, any one of these activities will achieve this.
WHY USE A SIMPLE
TIBETAN YOGA ROUTINE?
A simple form of Tibetan Yoga is easier to remember and perform, which help you relax more and stops your mind from being too active.
Just five simple exercises are needed to develop flexibility, exercise your muscles and inner organs. You'll also balance your chakras, which are the energy centres that control your body, mind, and spirit.
The system I use was brought to the attention of the world by Peter Kelder in 1939 in his book The Eye of Revelation.
It told of a retired British army officer who was taught the routine by monks in a remote Tibetan monastery in the Himalayas. After a while, the officer noticed that his body looked and felt younger, and he believed that the tibetan exercises caused this rejuvenation.
Tibetan Monks have used this method for thousands of years They offer a key to living a long, vibrant and health life... Tibetan Yoga
HOW CAN YOU POWER UP
THE BENEFITS OF TIBETAN YOGA?
First of all, practise the 5 exercises every day. Each exercise is to be performed 21 times, which may take you a few weeks to achieve.
It is recommended that you start with just 5 repetitions of each exercise, and then add a few more each day.
This ensures that you don't 'over-do it', when you first begin. If your enthusiasm causes you to do too many, then you will strain your muscles and they will ache... which may put you off ;)
What can you do to improve on the benefits?
Well, there are several things that are essential. The main idea here is to treat your body and mind as a 'Temple'. In other words, treat it with respect, and only put in pure air, clean water, good food.
Also stop negative thoughts and feelings by focusing on positive ones. I go into all of this in detail in my Optimum Health Secrets
