What is yoga? (Text partly taken from the Passeport Santé website)
Yoga is the practice of postures, breathing exercises, meditation, which aims to bring physical (strengthening, relaxation) and mental well-being. However, it is first and foremost a way of life whose foundations and possible application in all spheres of our lives can be found in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, written about 200 years before our era.
Even though classical postures have proven themselves and have remained the same for millennia, yoga continues to evolve. There are many styles of yoga that combine postures, breathing exercises and meditation in a more or less energetic or gentle, lively or calm way.
Yoga provides a number of physical benefits including muscle relaxation (yoga postures are varied to stretch all major muscle groups). Some postures help to strengthen muscles, while others work on balance.
With regular practice, we can correct posture errors developed throughout our lives, which greatly reduces chronic back problems.'
Yoga also helps reduce stress. A Boston University study published in 2010 showed that yoga was effective in relieving anxiety. During the session the attention is entirely directed to the body and breathing, we are in the 'here and now', which is a form of meditation. On the mat, we are invited to take time to listen to the body, the attention is constantly brought back to the breath, thus developing the capacity for concentration.
The first part of the class is often devoted to meditation, breathing and warming up, then we move into the intensity of the practice with the sequence of standing and balancing postures. In the last part of the class, stretching is emphasized in sitting and lying postures. We close the session with the dead man's posture or 'Shavasana' which consists of lying on your back and relaxing all the muscles of the body.
The practice of yoga does not require a lot of equipment, a yoga mat and possibly a blanket, a strap and two blocks.
In conclusion, yoga is an art of living and a complete physical activity for body and mind. The practice of yoga brings real benefits by improving strength and flexibility but also by reducing stress and anxiety. »
