    How To Do Fish Pose (Matsyasana)? Matsyasana or Fish Pose is one of the best yoga poses for beginners as it is a ‘backbend asana’ that strengthens the upper back and the back of the neck and stretches the muscles of the front of the neck and the muscles between the ribs. The term Matsyasana is a combination of the words ‘Matsya’ (the Sanskrit word for fish) and ‘asana’ (meaning posture). How To Do Fish Pose (Matsyasana) Some Steps Are:- 1. Sit in Dandasana (Staff Pose), with your legs extended in front of you and your spine long. 2. Slowly roll onto your back. Press your palms down and lift up to the top of your head. 3. Walk your fingers toward your feet until your arms are straight—your elbows should be off the floor. Again press down firmly with your palms, and tuck your shoulder blades into your back; this will lift and open your chest and support your neck. 4. Keep your legs and feet strongly engaged. If it feels like there’s too much pressure on your head or spine, see the modifications on page 32. 5. Place your attention on the sensation of your breath right at the edge of your nostrils. Don’t think about or visualize the breath, but actually tune in to the feeling of the wind energy passing in and out of your body. Let your mind settle into this practice of close attention. If you want to learn yoga then you can join 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Program (YTTC) which is conducted by one of the best and Registered Yoga School (RYS), Yoga Vedanta at Rishikesh- Yoga capital of the world.

    YOGA IMPROVES BALANCE AFTER STROKE Each year too many people suffer a stroke, which may be serious, long- term disability for most of them. Whether stroke impacts speech, coordination, balance, vision or even breathing, there is no question that recovering from a stroke is a long and difficult process. Fortunately, a doctor suggests a number of ways to the stroke patients so that they can recover soon, it turns out that something as simple as yoga may have significant benefits for stroke victims. Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability in the world with more than 4.7 million stroke victims alive today. Many people don’t fully recover from a stroke and functional recovery plateaus after five months. According to a new study, however, yoga therapy helps to recover the stroke victims easily and in short span of time. CAUSES OF BALANCE PROBLEM AFTER STROKE When a stroke occurs on one side of the brain, it will affect the opposite side of the body while the other side remains mostly unaffected. This means that as you walk, which involves an equal use of both sides of the body, one side of your body isn’t cooperating as much as the other. This will create issues with stability – a post stroke side effect that you can absolutely fix! Yoga can be a therapeutic addition to your stroke rehabilitation regimen. But don’t worry, we’re not talking about morphing your body into any crazy poses here. Instead, we’ll focus on the gentler, healing side of yoga that helps foster your mind-body connection. These healing yoga practices involve savasana, mindful walking, and pranayama. Let’s dive in. Savasana Savasana, also known as corpse pose, is everyone’s favorite pose because all you have to do is lie on your back with your arms relaxed at your sides. Well, the benefits go a little deeper than you’d think. The restorative effects of savasana take place as you begin to clear your mind. Through this simple pose, you can quiet your internal chatter and let go of any negative and frustrating thoughts that often come up during the rehabilitation process. While savasana might sound easy, it can get very difficult to quiet your mind. But once you begin to practice this restful meditation daily, you’ll find that you have less negative thoughts and a clearer outlook on life. TYPES OF THERAPY TO RECOVER STROKE PATIENTS Depending on the severity of the stroke, prior to yoga, patients will probably need to start with the following. Physical therapy -- Teaches walking, sitting, lying down, and switching from one type of movement to another. This should start the first day after a stroke. Occupational therapy -- To relearn eating, drinking, swallowing, dressing, bathing, cooking, reading, writing, and toileting. Speech therapy -- To relearn language and communication skills. Often, non-verbal alternatives are encouraged until speech returns. Psychological/psychiatric therapy -- To help relieve some mental and emotional stresses (such as depression) that often accompany a stroke. These feelings may be due to the location of the brain damage itself or may be a reaction to the stroke. In severe cases, this often requires relearning everything one does. Because part of the brain can be damaged, the patient has to reprogramme the surrounding area of the brain to pick up the duties the stroked area used to perform. The restoration of cognitive function following stroke most likely occurs by neural adaptations in the surrounding brain tissue that allows it to take over the function of lost neurons. Not much is known about the specifics of how cognitive function is restored, however most likely what is happening amounts to a re-routing of information processing functions into healthy brain tissue. This reprogramming is immensely tiring for a patient as physically and mentally much work is involved. During the initial stages, this will be very stressful and the patient will sleep a lot but later on it will be very beneficial for the person. The patient requires an experienced yoga Guru to perform yoga to improve balance after stroke. You can join Yoga Vedanta, a yoga center at Rishikesh- the yoga capital of the world. Here you get the chance to practice yoga under the guidance of experienced yoga teachers. For more information, you can visit at- http://yoga-vedanta.in/

    Yoga Asanas Poses And Postures Yoga Asanas is not about just standing on your head means yoga is not only about learn different Yoga Asanas poses and postures it is about to increase your Yoga Asanas physical and mental strength. Yoga gives a perfect posture to your body. "Yoga is not just physical exercises, It's emotional integration, spiritual elevation, with the touch of a mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something which is beyond all imagination." ~Sri Ravi Shankar Yoga is a complete science; it unites body, mind, and spirit and also the universe. It brings peace and bliss to every individual. It also creates a significant difference in one’s behavior, thoughts, and attitude. Daily practice of yoga increases our tranquility, sensitivity, intuition, and awareness. What is yoga asanas? Our mind is like a pendulum; swinging from past to future, regret, and anger to anxiety and fear, happiness to sorrow. It is ‘Yoga asana’ that enables us to maintain equanimity. Yoga asana is not a mere workout or exercise! As described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra -“sthira sukham asanam”–it means Yoga asana is a balance of effort and ease. We give effort to get into the posture and then we relax. Yoga asana brings that balance in every aspect of our life. It teaches us to put effort and then let go, gets detached from the result. Yoga asana increases our physical flexibility and expands our mind. Yoga has to be done with the breath, and with awareness. When we lift our hands for yoga, first we become aware of the arm and then we slowly lift it, synchronized with the breath. It is as graceful as a dance, gliding into one posture from another. The key is to stretch a little more, in each asana, than what we are comfortable and then relax and let go. This little effort to take the body beyond its agreeable limit expands our mind. Another Yoga Sutra by Patanjali says “prayatna shaithilyaananta samapattibhyam”–Again it reiterates the same philosophy. Give effort and then let go and by doing so Infinity dawns in our awareness, our awareness expands! some more Yoga Asanas Poses And Postures:- 1.
