The myth is that many of these holy men used to spend years doing yoga and during that time they did not eat or drink anything. No one knows if these stories are true but one thing you have to admit that yoga has some kind of magical power. From the moment you start doing yoga you will see a vast improvement in your body. Yoga is also a great way to lose weight and tone up your body. Breathing yoga asana is known to cure diseases like diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure and many other life threatening diseases like that. Certain yoga can also reduce the effect of chemotherapy on the body. Not just that, there is a asana which if you practice every day will help you with your eyesight, many people reported that they stopped wearing glasses after practicing the asana every day, because their eye sight improved a lot.
But do not start yoga without knowing the side effects properly; all asana are not suited for everyone. So be careful. Here is a step by step guide of how can you start doing yoga safely at home.
When you are starting yoga as a beginner it is important that you do the practice in the morning and in an empty stomach. This will be more effective. If you ate something then wait for at least two hours before you start doing yoga. Otherwise you may suffer from unwanted cramps.
Always start doing yoga at a open place, when you are little expert you can do yoga in your room, but as a beginner it will be better, yoga is all about breathing, so when you are doing the yoga in the morning at a open place the clear and cold air will enter your lungs and you will feel refreshed and the change in your body.
My suggestion is that you start doing yoga with breathing asana for one month and then you can start doing the body toning yoga, even here you need to first start doing stand up asana as they are easier to do. After you become little used to these poses move the exercise to the mat and start doing the more complex poses slowly. Do not try doing a lot of complex poses at once. It will harm your body.
There are lots of different kinds of yoga that you can do these days. All these yoga benefits our body only if you do them properly, so the best way to do yoga is enroll under an expert. If you are part of a yoga class then it will help you keep your focus and the master will teach you the right breathing technique so you can get the best benefits of yoga. I want to finish this article by saying that all people should try doing yoga, as it improves the overall health and helps us live longer.
