Easiest Poses Against Neck and Back Pain !

When it comes to very nagging Neck and Back Pain, the full-blown Backbend yoga poses might be difficult, particularly for the very young and the aged. In that case I would suggest practicing easy backend poses, specially after being inflicted.

Here are some poses which might be of great help to us:

  1. Head Raising Pose(Bhujangasana/Cobra Pose): It is not always the fact that we can and have to practice always its full-bown pose. For example, we can look at tis one !
Parshwa Dhanurasana

It is Parshwa Dhanurasana where ‘Parshwa’ meaning ‘side’ or ‘lateral’. One can practice with one leg as well, only pulling only one leg while keeping the other leg normal and relaxed.

You just can change the sides and follow again.

2. This one is a great example how we can practice one pose in a modified and comfortable manner while getting all the benefits rather out of a full-fledged one!

Essy Version of Fish Pose

This modified easy fish pose can help us get good relief from neck and back pain.

3. Modified Shalvasan: Full-fledged Shalvasana is good, but might be difficult for many of us. But this easy pose may be quite enjoyable!

Easy Shalvasana(Locust Pose)

Moreover, Full-fledged Shalvasana(Locust Pose) can be restricted for heart patients.

4. Easy Bow Pose: It is suitable for many of us, the aged and the beginner.

Easy Bow Pose

This can be very enjoyable and can be fun as well, especially for those who are undergoing problems.

5. Sometimes the full-fledged is not the best. Just see:

Here this practitioner has just maintained a good spine posture which is comfortable and scientific for relieving neck and bank pain!

Ashtanga Yoga!

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a form of yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century, promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. He claimed to have learnt the system from his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. The style is energetic, synchronizing breath with movements. The individual poses (asanas) are linked by flowing movements (vinyasas).

Jois established his Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in 1948. The current style of teaching is called the Mysore style after the city, India where the practice was originally taught. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga has given rise to various spinoff styles of Power Yoga.

Ashtanga Yoga comprises the following. Ashtanga means ashta (eight) and anga(limbs). That means eight limbs yoga. Here ‘limb’ means part. The eight limbs are as follows:-

  1. Yamas (Behavioural must-practice observances – things you should do/to be done
  2. Niyamas (Behavioural restraints obligations, rules and regulations– things you should not do
  3. Asana (Yoga poses / postures)
  4. Pranayama (Breathing exercise techniques to control life force energy)
  5. Pratyahara (Withdrawal of the senses, i.e., self-control)
  6. Dharana (Concentration)
  7. Dhyana (Meditation)
  8. Samadhi (Transendance)

Ashtanga yoga can be practiced by the ones who are ashram-dwellers(monastery dwellers) following total spiritual life renouncing the world! That does not mean that no family man or anyone living in a family can not practice it. You are free to follow if you are capable of doing so.

Control Your Anger as a Yogi!

As Yoga practitioners, we must control our anger! This is important. Anger is at the root of so many evils. It is one major enemy (Ripu) of us.

In practical life, this anger can destroy all your plans in a fraction of a second when we lose ‘temper’. It is a great physical evil as well because it can lead you to sickness and heart attack if the person(s) are aged, weak, and having heart problems!

As a yoga follower one can control anger easily. We must be alert that anger can hurt our personal and social situation to a considerable extent.

Anger does also affect the relationship of a person with his own family members, friends, and relatives. It can put us in problematic situations from where it might be rather impossible to free ourselves!

Intelligent and rational individuals do not lose their temper. They rationalize and tackle situations with perfect control over their temperament.

With yoga your capability to control anger is inherent!

So let us be cool and composed always!

Today I Practice over a Six-Month Gap !

Today I Practice over a Six-Month Gap !

Today I practiced after more than six months at a stretch ! But I could practice yoga, cautiously, with less bends and stretches and felt uniquely awesome just !

For some unavoidable circumstances I could not follow yoga practices, although I maintained postures while doing sedentary works on regular basis.

I have no problems, but I remained careful about hurting my muscles and bones which have not received regular way of practices.

But I remained confident that my memory cells won’t betray my lack of practice !

Yoga is actually a skill like all other games and sports and can be resumed, with a bit of care and caution and back in shape again.

By saying so I am not playing down the credits and advantages of regularities. But we have certain times in life when nothing works.

But Yoga will be on our side all through and may appear before us as blessings of God !

Build Strong Willpower with this Pranayama !

Build Strong Willpower with this Pranayama !

Yes we have one such pranayama in our list which is just wonderful ! This is such a pranayama that will make you completely relaxed and confident. This is particularly useful when your sleep is not complete and/or when you can not sleep owing to stress and tension.  Because at the end of this pranayama you will automatically sleep for a minute or so. But you will feel that you have slept for a sufficient period of time ! After that if you need to sleep you can do so as per your requirement.

Yoga woman gray_shavasana

The most magical aspect of this pranayama is that after every spell you will sleep and wake up and feel your breathings have kind of ceased, that is to say that your not inhaling and exhaling. Complete retention of breath for some time. After some time when such condition ends, you will ‘start’ breathing normally, although quite slow and cool that will be.

Yo just look at the mirror to find your eyes and face filled with rest, happiness and bliss, perhaps with a touch of smile ! This is sheer magic !

How To Practice :

Lie down in a supine position, after completing a short session of warm-up exercises.

You can practice this at the end of all exercises. At the end of all exercises take rest so that your breathing become normal and muscles relaxed, just as they are before you sleep.

Yo can also practice when you are not in a work-out. But lie down relaxed for 3-5 minutes.

After you lie down in a supine position, keep your hands on the abdomen, just over your navel or pancreas gland !

Now inhale with both nostrils. After inhalation is complete, exhale slowly with both the nostrils, just a bit longer time.

Think while Inhaling: The vital energy stored in the air is entering into my body and is being stored in the Pancreas Gland ( Surya Gronthi )

Think while Exhaling: The vital energy stored in the Pancreas Gland is being spread through the entire body, to every gland, nerve, vein, arteries making them lively and removing all the obnoxious things and disease organisms from my body.

Let’s Fight Covid-19 together with some common “to-follow’s” which will make us highly capable to Fight off the Dreaded Demon !

Here are the Tips which you can give a Second Thought to !
  • Eat Well ! Avoid fast foods, eat abundant vegetables, fruits, meat etc. Don’t smoke. Follow ‘healthy food’ principles.
  • Sleep Well ! Lack of sufficient sleep and deep sleep without worries is basic to good health.
  • Be Tension-free. Enjoy and Relax with friends and family members maintaining Corona guidelines

    Walk in indoor spaces :

    Walk in  indoor spaces when you can not go outdoors ! Find some spaces in or around your house. You need not always walk rapidly. Let us walk even slowly and comfortably oft and on, when we are off from the computers, studies etc. Not that we have to walk at a stretch. You walk when you get time for a minute or so. You need not warm up, because you are not walking at a speed.

  • Have some activities everyday. At least engage in some domestic work to remain active.
  • Do pranayams while walking (Bhraman Pranayam). But you inhale with four steps and exhale with the next six steps. That will be better. This helps our lungs get more axygen.
  • Be Responsible socially. Wear masks, follow Corona guidelines keeping in mind your aged and young family members ! Because all age categories can be potential carriers.

Wearing Mask is the major mantra to Fight COVID-19.

Positive Attitude: With positive attitude we can fight the pandemic together as a responsible member of the society following health norms.
