Happy Freestyle Fridays! It has been a while since I have had a guest post. Today’s post is by Noelle Page. She “is a passionate blogger. She works on behalf of Ehic.

Yoga practices can awaken the body and bring the feeling of wholeness. It awakens the greatest potential within those who practice them making their bodies to acquire good immune system. Having a regular yoga routine can be very beneficial to your body. These physical, mental and spiritual practices are found to be very vital in transforming your body to a healthier one. There are many different types of yoga that will benefit your mind and body once you figure out the best for you I have to admit that my constant practice of yoga is the sheer secret to my perfection and success as a yoga performer. Hatha type of yoga is good for the beginners as it gives basic poses and relaxation techniques that are not complicated. It relieves stress, improve the breathing and gives physical strenght too. This type of yoga recommended for those who want to try out yoga and learns its basics.

After hatha, I embarked on Vinyasa which is a bit similar to hatha though it covers basic poses combined with breath-synchronized movements. It emphasizes on the sun salutation which is a series of twelve poses that will require you to match your movements with your breath at the same time. This will absolutely improve your spiritual self, help you to lose weight, release your stress, strength and stamina. If you wish to get in touch with the spiritual side, this is the best yoga for you to deeply sink yourself  into It.

Taking on Ashtanga will also improve your spiritual self as well as improving your body coordination. It is physically demanding because of the involved synchronizing breathing with endless series of posture making the body to produce intense internal heat. To give you a free piece of advice, if you can practice this type of yoga consistently then you will have a very elegant story to tell about your flexibility, stamina, strength and circulation. This is not recommended for beginners.

Bikram Yoga is one of the yoga practices that are a comprehensive workout including all the components of fitness. If you have ever thought of building your muscular strength then this should be one of your preferred yoga options. It will also ensure your cardiovascular flexibility and weight loss enhanced very well It has one crucial aspect which is the 95-105 degree temperature which tends to promote your body flexibility, detoxification and help you prevent injuries. It is sometimes called hot yoga because it uses heated environment and that is what it specializes in.

All the yoga performers would want to increase their speed in recovering from an injury and also bring their body into alignment. This is possible when you practice the lyengar type of yoga that will increase your body stamina as well I can recommend this to the beginners learning correct alignments in their poses. It is also good for balance issues and some chronic medical conditions like arthritis.

Anusara yoga can also help you at large by opening your heart and try connecting it to divine in yourself. To recapitulate, I would strongly urge you to practice yoga as it will help you build your immune system, help you lower stress, refresh your mind and so many health benefits. Yoga has been around for several years and still will be there to help people physically, mentally, and spiritually. It will surely help you if you start practicing duly.

  1. my experience with yoga has been very different then this. Although there are many different styles and the history is extensive Yoga is basically about the same thing. to yoke unify. Think of it as a big tree and there are different leaves. People come to yoga classes for the above reasons…sure- getting into shape etc, but they stay for other things…they usually find a spiritual practice, and learning a practical way of being that you can take off the mat. The best way to find out what Yoga class works for you is to take classes, and keep an open mind about them with little expectation of outcome. Remember that the practice is just that a practice meaning there is never perfection in yoga-it’s a harmful way to approach asana practice. we are not looking for that, that goes against yogic philosophy of attainment. What we find is that every time you step on your mat you are different and your practice will be as well, we learn compassion for others by learning to practice that compassion towards ourselves.
