Yoga, one of the world's oldest forms of exercise, is experiencing a rebirth in our stressful modern world. You wouldn't think that a revered 3000-year-old exercise would hit mainstream. But, yoga is now accessible to everyone of any age. Most significantly, the practice is now being prescribed even by some medical practitioners to combat a range of health ailments and illnesses, as a stress reliever and to complement other fitness programs. Talk to anyone who practices yoga and they will quickly give you an endless list of benefits. It seems beginners quickly become converts. They believe it is the key to good health and happiness in today's world _ a common goal for most people. But probably the greatest advertisement for yoga is the fact that it seems to have graduated from the weird and alternative ranks into a position of fairly wide community acceptance. Housewives, businessmen, sportspeople, teenagers and the aged are all practising a variety of yoga positions, meditation and associated breathing exercises. For many, yoga becomes a way of life _ often giving a more spiritual side to people's lives, although not necessarily linked to religion. One school of belief maintains that chronic and accumulated stress is the reason for many of our modern illnesses. Proponents of yoga argue that it has a multiplicity of techniques to counter that cause and, unlike drug therapy, attack the cause, not just the symptoms. It offers, they say, a holistic approach to health and fitness. Many professional athletes, looking for the edge have turned to yoga as a supplementary form of training. They have found that yoga aids their state of mental and physical relaxation between training sessions, and their crucial build-up to big meets, where a competition is usually won or lost in the mind.Experience The Wonders Of Yoga With This Handbook And Be Ready To Learn The History Of Yoga, Dynamic Yoga, Online Yoga Videos And The Innumerable Advantages Of Yoga!
