Waking up doesn’t have to consist of pouring coffee down your gullet to shock yourself alive. If a woman wants a healthy way of life devoid of any strain and stress, she should start her day with yoga.
Your approach to fitness and well-being and to life, in general, should be a nonviolent one – working smoothly with concentration and determination at your own pace without competing with anyone else. Don’t be ruthless with yourself, and you won’t be ruthless with other people.
Your routine should ideally center on 28 postures drawn from the 5,000-year-old technique whose name comes from the Sanskrit for sun, moon, and join together. The exercises should range from deep breathing to pretzel-like stretches. Yoga is strenuous, but not painful, and it gives every inch of your body a terrific workout.
First things first, when you roll out of your bed, sit onto a mat on the floor and hug your knees to your chest. Then raise your legs in the air and stay bottoms up until your head clears. Next, stand up and drop your forehead to your shins until you feel ready to tackle the toothbrush and get on with your day.
Don’t space out during workouts. Use that time to have a private conversation with yourself: ‘How do I feel physically, mentally.’ ‘How are my balance and coordination today.’ ‘Is there something I should pay special attention to?’
Yoga helps you maintain flexibility, build strength and muscle definition, and even. Try spending 60 to 90 minutes on your yoga routine, before breakfast, five to six days a week. By following the basics mentioned here, you’ll surely have a healthy and balanced life.
