If you thought that yoga was all about bending and twisting your body in odd shapes, it’s time to rethink. It is much more. In very simple words, giving care to your body, mind and breath is yoga. This means that the century-old practice includes yoga postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayamas) and meditation. Through these, the body, mind and breath come in harmony with each other and that very moment yoga happens.
Yoga is based on five basic principles .
- Proper relaxation
- Proper exercise
- Proper breathing
- Proper diet
- Positive thinking and meditation
