“It is important to learn Ashtanga Yoga by the traditional method, according to which the next posture is added on only when the student has gained proficiency in the previous one. In this way excessive exertion, fatigue, and unwanted side effects are avoided. Proficiency in a posture can be assessed only by a qualified teacher. The importance of learning the method from a qualified teacher cannot be stressed enough. It is not possible to learn yoga from a book or video, because these media cannot provide feedback when the student engages in a posture poorly. If this should be the case, little or no benefit would be gained from the practice; in fact damage could be done.”
— “Ashtanga Yoga: Practice And Philosophy” By Gregory Maehle.
How Yoga Can Improve Mental Health and Wellness?
Connection between the mind and body is vital to overall health and wellbeing, and yoga is a powerful tool that promotes this connection.
Originating in ancient India, yoga combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation to enhance both physical and mental health.
Numerous studies have shown that yoga can have a positive impact on mental health. Practicing yoga on a regular basis has been found to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression, elevate mood and self-esteem, and even boost brain activity in regions associated with memory and learning.
This is largely due to yoga’s promotion of mindfulness and self-awareness, which enables individuals to better comprehend and regulate their thoughts and emotions.
