Health cannot be defined simply by the shape of one’s body, as it covers many other aspects. Good health is an individual’s well-being that constitutes his physical health, mental health, emotional and spiritual health. To enjoy the bountiful gift of life, we must be healthy, and strong. A diseased mind or a sick body suffers from being unable to relish the myriad experiences of life. This is why we need to nurture and care for our own well-being. This includes taking care of all the different aspects of mind, body and spirit. 

Through the help of yoga we can be physically fit, mentally alert, emotionally balanced and spiritually blissful. This is the ancient and divine science that takes care of our whole being. When we are filled with positive energy, we can radiate good vibrations, and handle the day with calmness. A reflection of our healthy mental and emotional state is the ability to remain calm, restrained, and aware. Here are 3 asanas, practising which, can benefit all these facets of your being.

Yoga is a practice that gives innumerable benefits to the practitioner’s physical, mental and emotional state. The various aspects of yogic practice include asanas that can strengthen and tone your body, and make it flexible. Pranayama is regulation of breath that adds vitality to your life; it also helps as a detox mechanism. Meditation techniques provide a sense of calm that soothes your mind and wards away stress. The beauty of yoga and spirituality is that it needs no expensive equipment or props. With all these different factors nourished, we can find ourselves in alignment with our highest goals and purpose.
