Adopt Yoga for Healthy Living

Yoga is the most ancient method with a 5,000 year old of tradition. It deals with the physical, psychological as well as spiritual growth of our body and mind. Regular practice of it also enhances your body’s immune system. Here is how. Our immune system is made up of lymph nodes, the thymus glands and the channels that carry lymph throughout the body. But the lymphatic system does not have a heart to pump the lymph through the channels. For this, Yoga is ideal as it helps to squeeze lymph and detoxify the body. An additional benefit of yoga practice is learning how to control the breath. Creating more space in the body with postures, allows deeper breathing which acts an as internal massage of sorts. As you become a more experience breather, you will be able to handle stressful situations and subsequently fight off your illness more competently. Yoga if practiced along with Therapeutic massage can double up the relaxing effect. Massage is a fantastic way to reduce the effects of stress on the body, the aches and pains from improper breathing, poor posture from sitting in front of a computer or even driving for long period of time. As the therapist uses long strokes along the arms and legs creating circulation of lymph, it brings instant relief. It also boosts your immune system.
