The Ultimate Peace: Yoga
Today, there are no age factors that determine heart ailments. People in their 20s are also being prey to heart problems. What is the reason? Is it because of our dietary choices or lifestyle?
Let’s take an oath on this World Peace Day. We will not just provide oxygen to our hearts but peace too!
Ayushakti on International Peace Day.
Have you ever thought about cutting down the daily chaotic noise around you?
Just enjoy the SILENCE!
Yoga is that silence that you are looking out for!
We need a balance between body and mind in our regular hectic life. Yoga is the science of wholeness that establishes the fullness of life.
As a rule, normal factors that influence the heart are carelessness and an absence of mindfulness. Put forth a mindful attempt to keep a relaxed mind and sense of calm. Triggers, for example, depression, anxiety, an unhealthy diet, lack of nutrition and an unpredictable way of life, should be kept away from or eliminated from our day-to-day lives to keep our body and mind healthy.
Add yoga to your everyday schedule to perform a functioning attempt toward keeping your heart sound. It won't just simply improve your actual physical health but deal with your psychological prosperity, adding to a better heart.
Ayurveda’s Take on Heart Health
According to Ayurveda, improper diet and lifestyle aggravates the Tridoshas with the formation of Ama. Heart vessels become narrow due to Kapha and Ama which settles in the vessels and form cholesterol.
Vata vitiation reduces the elasticity of the vessel. Ama get stored inside and around the coronary arteries and heart in the form of plaques. There is pressure on the heart to pump blood through these narrow vessels. This development in the heart and the vessels cause diminished blood flow. It will lead to Heart Disease.
The Mountain Pose (Tadasana)
You can begin your journey to a healthy heart with the easiest of all yoga poses - Tadasana. In addition to the fact that this is the best yoga asana for a healthy heart, it reinforces your lower back too.
How to do it:
- Stand straight with your feet together and keep your back straight
- Bring your palms and interlock them
- Breathe in and stretch your arms up with your palms looking lower
- Look up and then gently drop your head back on your shoulders
- Hold for around 5-10 seconds and repeat 1-2 times
The Chair Pose (Utkatasana)
The Utkatasana is known to deal with your breath rate, which helps your heart's well-being. Subsequently, it is one of the most fantastic heart-opening yoga poses that extend your chest and stimulates the respiratory system.
How to do it:
- You can begin with the Tadasana and gradually bend your knees and move your hips in reverse as though you are sitting on a chair.
- Lift your hands upwards. Contact the ears and relax the shoulders
- Hold the posture for 5-10 breaths and have a go at extending upwards if possible
- Release your hands and return to the original position
The Tree Pose (Vrikshasana)
Like the Mountain Pose, this is also one of the simplest yoga types that anybody can do. It works on your shoulders and allows you to work on your posture. The Vrikshasana is one of the easiest heart-opening yoga poses.
How to do it:
- Stand straight and put your arms along the side of the body
- Bend your right knee while lifting your right leg
- Put it on the inner thigh of your left leg
- Now, raise your arms over your head in a 'namaste' gesture.
- Keep your back straight and stand firm on this footing for a couple of breaths.
- Breathe out and get back to the initial position
- Repeat this same process with your different leg on your inner thigh.
The Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)
Regarding yoga for heart health, the Uttanasana is the ideal yoga pose. It is a relaxing yoga pose and requires some adaptability. You can perfect the Uttanasana by regularly practising, allowing you to experience its calming benefits well.
How to do it:
- Start with the Tadasana
- Take a full breath and bend forward; you breathe out
- Bend your body at the midsection and put your hands on the floor adjacent to your feet
- Expand the stretch, push your torso forward and lift your tailbone
- Stand firm on this position for a couple of moments and afterwards release to the initial position.
The Corpse Pose (Savasana)
Although this yoga asana is broadly used as the last pose in yoga classes, it is, without a doubt, supportive of your heart health. The Corpse Pose allows your body to unwind and deals with your feelings of anxiety as well. This makes it one of the most mind-blowing yoga asanas for heart health.
How to do it:
- Rests on your back with your arms on the sides.
- Keep your legs stretched up and close your eyes
- Relax up your body and inhale slowly.
- You can proceed with this pose for a couple of moments.
Performing yoga daily will eventually result in better concentration and a sense of inner peace. Yoga helps you calm down, and you will notice how calmness is no longer just a part of your practice but has become a way of life.
