Yoga simply means a sum or unity of two entities. Here it means the unison of self with god, or the cohesion of body and mind. It has been developed and practiced for thousands of years by our sages and this is now known world over as a part of Indian culture. It was first presented in a formal and systematic written work by great yoga all that he gathered by word of mouth from various sources, was compiled to give a whole system in an easy form of discipline. The term yoga was defined by kapalabhati yoga and results in walking of our hidden potentialities. It provides us physical, mental and spiritual well- being with a long life. It is progressive in nature, since each of its step takes you nearer to a stage leading to desired goal. Take one step at a time without continuous looking at the goal. Keep in mind of the means by which it may be achieved, and continue which will break even your worst habits. Enjoy all you do to attain the consciousness.

Health through yoga:

A good health means that all organs of the body are working efficiently. The importance of the proverbs, health is wealth”,” if health is lost everything is lost “,is realised more in its absence than by its presence. Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind. The importance of health is more than education, money and other material comforts. Happiness is intimately concerned more with good physical and mental health than other outside factors. At this stage, we need to know the essential conditions to keep ourself healthy. Some of the external factors like environment, heredity, work, and sanitation could be discussed separately, but we need to discuss the role of yoga and exercises which is in our hands. The strenuous demands of work make us careless about health, but the body is the best indicator. It starts giving warning signals if you are neglecting your health and any sensible person wiil pay heed and get down to correction. Indian men are as lethargic as women in looking after their health. But fortunately, Indians have now begun to take of some outdoor activities or exercises after being woken up by the media to a new health awareness. One needs to be disciplined and controlled in reacting to situation which helps in fighting work-related stress and tension.

One needs to start his day with a spot of yoga. Those who follow this, firmly believe that this helps them to feel alive and energetic throughout the day. And yoga one must do, day after day, without a break. Conventional exercises and games are not feasible on regular basis and these do not give mobility to all the joints particularly to the spine. Moreover, these exercises lack effect on vital organs of the body.
