How to Awaken The Dormant Forces in Your Body With Yoga

Aug 20, 2008
As I was learning about Yoga I read that Patanjali said: "Dormant forces are awakened and you find yourself to be a better person than you ever imagined." I thought that this was a great statement and I really wanted it to refer to me.

These are some of the things that I found that awakens the dormant forces in your body. In Yoga you stretch and breathe deeply and your airways are opened up as more oxygen gets into your brain. The life blood of your brain is the oxygen in the blood stream that feeds all of your brain cells and cells in your body. So it makes sense that if more oxygen gets into your brain cells it can help your whole body system. So Yoga is a great way to energize your day. Think about it!

From the foundation of adding oxygen into your body, Yoga is a way to protect against injury, as it releases tension, clear blockages and allows energy to flow freely through your whole body. As you perform your Yoga you have a sense of vitality and well-being along with better health and the feeling that you are connected with life. You know your body is changing. You become toned as you practice the various positions. Your muscles feel stronger and you find that your athletic performance improves. Not only do your muscles feel better and stronger but you also feel a difference in your bones, organs, glands and breathing system. You feel down right healthy from top to bottom.

The great thing about Yoga is that is accessible to anyone of any age, strength and flexibility level. It doesn't matter if you are completely healthy or ill. Our muscle connective tissue has a natural tendency to shorten as we get older. This can make us feel stiff. Some people as young as 25 years of age get these same symptoms. One of the great benefits of doing Yoga is that it helps to relieve this problem and in many cases completely eliminates it. The alternative medicine doctors, as well as the conventional medical community, have become major proponents of Yoga today. They have found that it not only helps with flexibility and eliminates stiffness but it also has mental benefits that include the increased ability to concentrate, relieving stress, depression and anxiety. That is a lot better than taking pills and a lot less expensive.

There are reports that Yoga has helped people with diabetes as an adjunct to diet and medication. It can help reduce symptoms of asthma, creaky joints, digestive issues and poor posture. Incorporating Yoga into your daily life is seen by many to be a great advantage in improving your health, your emotional well-being and your overall mental clarity.
