Yoga

 

Yoga is all about “controlling the mind.” Yoga has originated from India over five thousand years ago.  Today yoga is very common all over the world. It’s a good type of relaxation in many ways. Some of the ways it helps you relax is through stretching, breathing, and freeing your mind, body, and spirit. There are also many different yoga styles which include Ashtanga, Viniyoga, and Bikram Yoga.

Ashtanga yoga was created by K. Pattabhi. It is a rather intense type of yoga that is not suggested for beginners.  It is not the typical relaxation type of yoga. Ashantga yoga focuses more on strength and building. It is generally more of a  “Power” yoga.

Viniyoga yoga focuses on deep breathing. The purpose of this type yoga is to help an individual through stress, just as any other type of yoga. Meditation, pranayama, and concentration.

Bikram yoga is probably the most intense yoga of all. It involves doing yoga in extreme hot temperatures. The high temperature will prepare you to sweat and sweat. Founder Bikram designed it for the muscles to relax.
