The Four Letter Sanskrit Word: YOGA

The word Yoga seems to come up quite a bit in conversations these days, at least you know someone that practices it. So, what’s the hype about Yoga?

Historically, it was more than just a practice – it was a way of life, which originated from ancient India. To date, Yoga has become a very popular physical exercise, varying in practices and methods.

Sanskrit terms of doing the asanas (poses) to the breathing techniques of pranayama have made Yoga intriguing. Yoga is more than just a physical exercise, it is also a mental one.

From Child Pose to Tree Pose, from Chair Pose to Half Moon Pose. From Warrior Pose to Hero Pose. And the list continues...

Being put in all kinds of weird and wonderful positions can be challenging, but is all worthwhile!  In recent studies, science has provided evidence on yoga’s positive effects on health matters, including;

  • Prevention of back pains and joint breakdown
  • Protection against injury
  • Weight reduction
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved respiration i.e. Asthma
  • Lowers blood pressure, stress levels and much more...

In addition to improved health benefits, yoga has led many to travels to different parts of the world simply to practice with fellow yogis. The island of Bali has become an increasingly popular destination for those seeking to practice yoga for improved overall well-being.  Sun, sand, sea and clear blue skies are the ideal accompaniment for yoga.
