Why Should You Do YOGA?

There are many evidences in Hindu mythology that prove scientific theories existed in ancient times. These theories were later on proved by scientists.

For example.
The distance between Earth and Sun was proved scientifically in 1672.
A Hindu Prayer “Hanuman Chalisa”  written in 15th century, mentions this distance even without any scientific instruments.

“! जुग सहस्त्र योजन पर भानु, लील्यो ताहिमधुर फल जानू !”

This means that Sun (भानु) is at a distance of  Juug Sahastra Yojans (जुग सहस्त्र योजन- Distance Unit in Hindi)
According to following conversion practices that are in use as per Hindu Vedic Literature-

1 Juug = 12000, 1 Sahastra= 1000, 1 Yojan = 8 Miles
Thus 12000 X 1000 X 8 =  96,000,000  miles.
As per nasa this distance is 92,900,000 miles

This is just one of many example.
The question is how did these people knew so much??
Answer is –> Concentration and Connection of your body, soul and universe.

You don’t want to go this deep? Don’t go. Yet it is good for you in your day to day life.
Here is how:

Hearing the word yoga, people usually think of asanas or physical practice which offers benefits of body flexibility, strength and balance. But yoga offers much more than just an exercise for the mind and body. On a deeper level it is a union of body, mind and soul. Yoga gives you endorphins “The happy hormone”. Endorphins are neurotransmitters in the brain that have been shown to improve mood, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety .

Here are few suggestions for mapping mind and body connections :

DAILY PRACTICE : With daily practice we become more balanced and harmonious and our interactions with people and situations more calmer. And in regular practices our body tends to become more sensitive to each and everything in this universe.

MEDITATION : With meditation you’ll learn to harmonize breathing, movement and awareness, you’ll release stuck emotions which will lead to both physical and mental well being. In today’s fast paced life, closing the eyes and limiting the sensory input will immediately start to slow things in life. Deep breathe combined with meditative exercises will lower the brain frequency to more focused level of mind and helps discovering that the peace is within. Meditation is the easiest way to reset and balance our body and mind for long and happy life.
