    Therapeutic yoga exercises are very simple and with constant practice you can prevent and fight different types of physical and mental conditions.


    Breathing is one of the pillars on which yoga is based . A good breathing, deep and relaxed, make our body oxygenate much better, and as a result you get a great benefit to health in general.


    The stimulation of the vegetative nervous system facilitates the state of relaxation , which is ideal to act against many problems.

    Hi, my son 15 years old doing yoga with me.
    And seems is good not only for adults, but for teens as well.
    Yoga is invariably associated with the concepts of relaxation, meditation and rest from the reality surrounding us. The teenage period is often presented as a time when a person is full of energy and is in constant search for something new. However, if you look, it can be noted that yoga classes contribute to the development of young people who are in their infancy and are constantly under pressure from the outside. Pressure in the school environment, endless changes or even serious problems in the family - stress factors are enough for teenagers. The rhythm of life accelerates and leaves young people experiencing a period of formation, very little time to understand themselves and get used to significant changes. Meanwhile, yoga primarily represents a moment of respite during which the teenager is alone with himself. He gradually learns to feel various parts of his body. Then, well-being and peace are achieved, not to mention excellent physical fitness and flexibility.

    Ha, my daughter also doing and also 15. I am completly agree that yoga is so much usefull for them. Just what different for teens that yoga should be primarily focused on action, rather than thinking, that is, thinking should be the result of action in the medium or long term. This is an age for which the knowledge of one’s own body, new feelings and emotions is relevant. It follows that the classes should be more rhythmic and less saturated with theory - the instructor should adapt to the teenager, and not opposite. In no case should yoga classes be boring or cause pain. The teenager should not be overworked by holding a difficult position for too long or devoting too much time to stretching.

    It is better to start from childhood and it is the best time. Learning to be in control of the mind instead of letting the mind control us is the purpose of meditation. Meditation helps you learn-
    1. to focus,
    2. it also helps you learn to relax when necessary.

    Meditation has been proven to help students-
    1. improve their test scores,
    2. learning capabilities,
    3. social skills and
    4. comprehension skills.

    That's amazing. Meditation is healthy for everyone regardless of age.

    One example I would mention here is. I.e when you are very stressed all people feel head ache. As per accuponture when ever we feel stressed energy blocks in nerve's and which become pain in a long run. So in accuponture they realise that energy blocked with the help of needle's. I have been doing meditation and yoga. If I say you can get same relief of one night sleep in doing just 20min meditation.

    Yoga helps destress the mind and helps it find peace. It also helps reduce disorders like anxiety. It increases endurance, strength and flexibility of the body. Thanks!

    The benefits of yoga provide both instant gratification and lasting transformation. In the fitness world, both are extremely important. Too much time with too few results can be incredibly discouraging, and monotonous routines week after week can lead to stagnation. I love to yoga. It's good for health.

    Yoga can change your physical and mental capacity quickly, while preparing the mind and body for long-term health. Thanks!
