10 Yoga Techniques For Advanced Fitness Buffs

Sep 9, 2008
Fitness is an evolving field. The emergence of several approaches to trim down is sometimes too much to contain. The more choices of health programs, the more an individual gets confused which the best for him is.

Effectiveness in fitness programs is not questionable. It's a matter of whether or not such program works on you if it does make an impact to others.

Among the weight loss programs, the most commonly used are cardio exercises such as running and aerobics, dancing, outdoor sports playing, body pump, bench press cardio and elliptical training.

For the more up-to-date health buffs, they have started appreciating the effects of taekwondo-kickboxing combo, boxing, Pilates and Yoga. The last two programs are more or less related as they use mind-body-spirit alignment to burn fats and strengthen muscles groups. These steps might help you:

1. Before doing the 10 Yoga steps, it's important to note that you should not allow your head to turn while your neck is under pressure. Pose with a supported headstand. First step in this technique of doing Yoga at home is to kneel down gradually. After that, your hands must grasp your elbows as if enclosing them both. Your forearms are the ones that carry on the weight of your body.

2. Take your hands of your elbows and bring them toward your front. Your fingers must be together closely. Your elbows should be straightened.

3. Still on a supported headstand position, you can place your interlocked hands at the back of your head. Your head's top must be aimed on the floor. Your hands and elbows should make a trivet or support that allows a solid foundation of your reversed body. Imagine standing on your head, you are turned upside down.

4. This time stretch your knees straightly and lift your hips.

5. Now, get your knees to straighten steadily while you bring your feet closely to your head. Draw your hips toward the back with your neck unbent forward or backward. Instead, your neck must be aligned with your spinal column.

6. Bring your bent knees toward your chest and raise your feet away from the floor. Drawing your hips backwards is to be done along with it. Hold this position and halt before trying to bring your knees a little higher.

7. Still bending your knees, you bring the upwardly toward the roof and feel the contraction in your abs.

8. You can now gradually stretch your legs straight. Your body's weight is mostly felt on the forearms this time. Move on and off the position gradually and controllably. To stretch your spine, you have to lengthen your legs up.

9. Tone down by doing steps 5, 6 and 7 again.

10. Rest as if you're sleeping and do six breaths deeply.

When doing yoga, it's important that you execute steps gradually. It's the art of stretching and breathing deeply where your mind, spirit and body align harmoniously.
