Dear friends I came across article in a mag which I would like share with you Do not try to learn yoga fro books/mags.An authentic yoga practice is one in which physical postures,breathing practices and meditation are incorporated into a daily routine.Approach your practice with a sense of curiosity.Learn from a teacher who is a yoga practitioner and follows authentic traditions.Do not believe Gurus who promise miracles or cures that are not backed by scientific evidence. Yoga vs gym Yoga is simplified and needs no equipment. It is suitable for all age groups. It can be done anywhere Gym exercises have temporary effects ,but yoga is long lasting and has deeper benefits. Yoga balances the mind and body. It is curative and prevents ailments of mind and body. Yoga improvesand balances body circulation and hormone secretion resulting in excellent metabolism.
