Yoga – A Philosophy Of Body And Mind

practicng mantra for emotional clarityWritten By Anne Clarke

It is claimed that the practice of yoga is capable to satisfy virtually all personal, philosophical, and spiritual human needs. Between many professionals in this fine art of fitness, there is a collective understanding that yoga is philosophy, and science as well as an art form. Many people use yoga classes, home exercise instructions, etc. as a primary form of exercise.

Practitioners find yoga relaxing and refreshing, and it shapes your body while serving your personal physical needs. In addition, there are mental advantages of which you may or may not be aware. As far as the spirituality behind the art of yoga, it caters to the personal spirituality of virtually anyone. Perfect for relaxation, it is a great time to meditate or pray. Many people refresh their bodies, minds and spiritual strength every day with the scientific, philosophical art of yoga. Yoga is designed to cultivate a direct channel between the mind and body for benefits in your life and personal, overall well-being.

Yoga is a science, and it is claimed that in the practice of which a balance between the physical and the mental state of person can be achieved. Yoga experts teach that the art of yoga will develop a balance that creates a personal state of optimal health and well-being. In accordance with the philosophy of yoga, in order to have the very best health and exercise, you must have a natural diet, plenty of fresh air, and exercise, as well as a keen mental awareness.

More and more people are finding that yoga is key to a more blissful life. This is quite a compelling persuasion to begin yoga as a regular practice in your day to day routine. If you could have happier day-to-day experiences, a better physical appearance, healthier relationships, a heightened sense of confidence and spirituality, and be healthier in general all because of one simple, philosophical, scientific, and artistic physical practice – why not try it? When I began to use yoga as a major part of my regular morning exercise routine, I found I felt more refreshed, more lucid, and I was easily able to turn my focus to my tasks for the day. I even began to feel more productive. That is just one testimony from my own personal experience, but mine is by far not the only testimony of gratitude.

This is truly an art form of exercise that is much more than a fad. In whatever manner current yoga students, teachers etc. happened to stumble upon the wonderful philosophy of yoga – the philosophy of combining the sciences of a type of exercise which connects the physical as well as the mental components of the individual – their collective praise of it is virtually always consistent. This is a type of exercise that can truly improve your life overall! If you are trying to decide what sort of exercise will be best for you, consider yoga – and you may never turn back.
