Yoga is good for your Health

Yoga for your Health

After enjoying the luxurious Ayurvedic spa treatments, there is so much more.

I felt like discovering what else the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center had to offer.

Everything is about attempting to improve your health.

Their program includes three delicious organic vegetarian meals a day, accommodations,

DVD’s, lectures on health and the prevention of medical problems, yoga, cooking classes,

and planned activities.

The sign said, “Yoga Tonight” so I walked into the large living room which alternates as a lecture

room, a place for yoga, and a comfortable setting to relax and meet the other guests.

Since I do not have time to exercise in Las Vegas and have not participated in yoga before I

wondered if they had a beginner’s class and was very happy when I found out that Robin, the

instructor, tailors his class to each person.

Robin explained, “We do not use complicated positions or strenuous poses.

 You only need very light stretching yoga postures.

There are 12 different postures and can be performed easily at home, the best time

is before breakfast.

One is the very unique Sun Salutations.

The Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) posture is great because it tones every major muscle in

your body.  You only practice 5-15 minutes a day.

The Sun Salutation is a complete Ayurvedic exercise that simultaneously

integrates the whole physiology including mind, body and breadth.

It strengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups, lubricates the joints,

blood flow and circulation is increased throughout the body.

It is a cycle of 12 postures performed in a fluid sequence

one right after another.

Each motion should be synchronized with the breath.

By moving smoothly into each pose, breathing fully

and easily through the nostrils,

holding a pose for a minimum of three seconds, each cycle takes

about one minute.

These 12 poses will help you on every level of physiology.

Your mind will be clearer, yoga will increase your vitality, feel balance and more strength.

If you have a problem sleeping at night, yoga can help.

Yoga can also assist in eliminating many superficial imbalances that people have.

Yoga goes along with the Maharishi Ayurvedic program because they want to

the body and mind.

Everything we do at the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center is to balance the mind and body.

Yoga compliments the program.”
