Health Benefits of Yoga in Daily Life

Weight loss, a strong and flexible body, glowing beautiful skin, peaceful mind, good health – whatever you may be looking for, yoga has it on offer. However, very often, yoga is only partially understood as being limited to asanas (yoga poses). As such, its benefits are only perceived to be at the body level and we fail to realize the immense benefits yoga offers in uniting the body, mind and breath. When you are in harmony, the journey through life is calmer, happier and more fulfilling. Yoga can help prevent most hearing loss conditions, you can also treat them with silencil.

  • All-round fitness
  • Weight loss
  • Stress relief
  • Inner peace
  • Improved immunity
  • Living with greater awareness
  • Better relationships
  • Increased energy
  • Better flexibility & posture
  • Better intuition

With all this and much more to offer, the benefits of yoga are felt in a profound yet subtle manner. Here, we can have a look at the top 10 benefits:

1. Yoga for all-round fitness –

As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar puts it, “Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” This is where yoga helps: postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation are a holistic fitness package. The benefits accrued by being a regular practitioner are numerous. Some very discernible ones are:

  • Improves health
  • Gives mental strength
  • Improves physical strength
  • Protection from injury
  • Detoxifies the body

Why do I do yoga? Well, reasons are many, shall we say –

  • Yoga – My personal fitness mantra
  • My weight-loss formula
  • My mind soother
  • My tool for better communication
  • My creativity machine
  • My doubt repeller
  • My time planner

2. Yoga for weight loss.

Desire of many ! Yoga helps here too. Sun Salutations and Kapalbhati pranayama help lose weight with yoga. Moreover, with regular practice of yoga, we tend to become more sensitive to the kind of food our body asks for and the time we take. This can also help keep a check on our weight.

3. Yoga for stress relief. A few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily – in both the body and mind. Yoga postures, pranayama and meditation are effective techniques to release stress. You can experience the calming effects of yoga in the Sri Sri Yoga Level 2 program.

4. Yoga for inner peace​. We all love to visit peaceful, serene spots, rich in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a mini-vacation to experience this any time of the day! Benefit from a small holiday every day with yoga and meditation. Yoga is also one of the best ways to calm a disturbed mind.

5. Yoga to improve immunity. Our system is a seamless blend of the body, mind, and spirit. An irregularity in the body affects the mind and similarly, unpleasantness or restlessness in the mind can manifest as an ailment in the body. Yoga poses massage organs and strengthens muscles; breathing techniques and meditation release stress and improve immunity.

6. Yoga to live with greater awareness. The mind is constantly involved in an activity – swinging from the past to the future – but never staying in the present. By simply being aware of this tendency of the mind, we can actually save ourselves from getting stressed or worked up and relax the mind. Yoga and pranayama help create that awareness and bring the mind back to the present moment, where it can stay happy and focused.

7. Yoga for better relationships.  Yoga can even help improve your relationship with your spouse, parents, friends or loved ones! A mind that is relaxed, happy and contented is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters. Yoga and meditation keeps the mind happy and peaceful, and watch how your relations with those around you blossom!

Exceptional Minds presents “Wrath of the Pocket God!”

Hey, everyone! This is an awesome animation from Erik Prothero at Exceptional Minds. It shows you just can’t be too complacent about the little guys in your iOS device. They may have ideas of their own!

Thanks to Erik and the folks at Exceptional Minds for their great work!

Episode 48, “Call of Booty,” available now!

And here it is! The Pygmies dive into an underwater world of menace and treasure in Episode 48, “Call of Booty!”

The gods, pleased with Teela’s inventiveness, have granted the Pygmies a special pair of waterwings. You may have to select them in the menu, but they’re available and ready to use. Drop the waterwings on any Pygmy, and he’ll dive into the water.

In order to swim, tap on either side of the Pygmy in the direction you want him to go. To change course, hold the tap in the new direction. To tilt upward, you tap slowly; to tilt downward, you tap faster. On top of that, the Pygmy, at rest, will float towards the surface. Be sure to dodge the various oceanic hazards, which include mines that will turn you to stone, face-hugging jellyfish, and voracious oysters.

Once you’re in the water, you’ll notice a helpful inset map of the entire swimmable area. In the map, a piece of booty will appear as a blinking yellow dot. After you grab the first one, the second one will appear, and so on.

Oh, yes. There’s one little detail about that first piece of booty. Once you’ve claimed it, the game is on. Your breathing time is limited, and the jellyfish decide that they desperately want to get their tendrils on some Fresh Pygmy in order to plant their eggs inside you! When that happens, it’s not pretty!

TIPS:

  1. The jellyfish are fast but they can be confused by sudden movements in another direction. So try swerving to buy some time!
  2. The game area loops. If the treasure is behind you, you can shoot forward and catch up with it from the other side.
  3. Watch that green bar under the map! If it shrinks to nearly nothing… you’re running out of air!

With 20 pieces of booty, it’s a supreme test of your awesomeness if you can get ’em all. Can you do it?

Last but not least… the Oyster God Idol beckons! If you active the Challenge of the Gods, Episode 48, you can collect this valuable piece of merchandise! Rise to the challenge and gain even more booty!

We’re very excited about this update, and we hope you will be too. By the way, the folks at TouchArcade have written up a nice piece about Episode 48 (Read it here), and don’t forget Dave’s State of the Island to see things from the programmer’s perspective!

Thanks to all our beachin’ Pocket God fans, and happy hunting!

Relax at Night with Yoga Before Bed

Nothing is more important or restorative to your body than a good night’s sleep. But sometimes, the day’s physical and mental stresses prevent your body from relaxing enough to fall asleep. A quick bedtime yoga routine can help your body unwind naturally and ready your body for a peaceful night’s sleep.

How it Works

Reduces Stress

Yoga can reduce anxiety and stress by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which sends the “rest and digest” signal. Yoga can also help lower your heart rate and ease the production of cortisol (the stress hormone). Check out the latest meticore reviews.

Promotes Physical and Mental Relaxation

By stretching tense muscles and pulling mental focus to an internal point of meditation while emphasizing breathing, yoga has the ability to immediately relax the mind and body.
