What is Yoga?
This is a serious question, and there are a lot of variations of answers. Firstly, the meaning of the word "yoga" is not always clear. Someone believes that this is sports, someone think that it is a healthy way of life, while others consider that this is a spiritual practice.
The number of answers, as well as questions, can be countless!
In fact, it is important to know only three things:
The first task is clear and simple: you need to learn how to interact with consciousness and subconsciousness!
Consciousness means the brain, the subconscious is all that is not consciously (the body). The body is a great tool! You don't need to buy it!
The main thing is to understand the principles of work and interaction!
Second: it is important to understand that we are all engaged in yoga gymnastics!
When they say: "I do yoga" (the meaning is the one described above). To be honest, to practice yoga, you have to be a yogi.
Transform not only your body, but also speech and mind.
Yogis are so clever and cunning that they were able to create an approach in which ordinary exercises gradually transformed into meditation. Third: meditation. If it is difficult for you - yoga is what you need. The side effect is a healthy tone, a strong body and a calm mind.
Of course, there are integral programs for achieving any purpose and this is absolutely normal. Water, for example, is not always used for drinking.
Therefore, when you hear about the stretching in yoga, think... Wise yogis with great experience of practice sat and meditate: "It is necessary to pull the muscles and get on your head ..." This is absurd! None of the texts have such words, and any adequate man can understand the main idea.
And the idea was to transform your mind! For such as we are, with the help of our body!
