With the lifestyle we have living in the cities, under the agglomeration and tendency to sedentarism life we are not use to move the body and our normal posture is sitting down.
So is normal that at the end of the day we feel tired and with sore body . Yoga practice allow us to strain the body and also to move some parts that we never use. We can stretch muscles and tendons of all over the body, we move the joints in all possible directions and always respecting the natural body alignment.
With the Asanas or yoga postures you can work the flexibility, balance, coordination, strength, will make you be more conscience of the muscles movements and which postures benefit you and which ones not.
You became conscience of our own body rhythms, specially the breathing. That consciousness of your breath will permit you to use the breath in a correct way, thats means use more and better your lung capacity and be able to calm down your body and mind.
The Yoga practice involve a physical part where difference asanas or postures are development. During this process the body release endorphins, “The happiness hormone”, which make us feel more relax and calm, it favor reasoning ability and reduces the tendency to react negatively to certain situations among other benefits.
There is also a spiritual or philosophical part in which one the Yoga teacher could explain in various ways the similarity of work and effort of the practice of the asanas with our life outside the yoga studio or “off-the matt”. Through asanas you can learn to stay focused and be aware of your body and your movements. This knowledge can and should be applied outside the yoga class for your own benefit.
