Dos and Don’ts for Yoga Sadhana

Yoga is one of the most beneficial practices and not just for your body but also for the heart and mind. Yoga practitioners are emotionally and intellectual more stable, calm and cheerful. Yoga is one of those regimes that keep you healthy as well as happy. No wonder, the whole world is falling in love with Yoga.
As more and more people start joining yoga classes or yoga training courses and retreats, we enlighten yoga enthusiasts about some Dos and Don’ts related to Yoga. Take a look –
Dos
1. It’s more beneficial if you practice yoga early morning. Evening time is also fine but doing yoga post meal times is not recommended. The basic rule is to practice yoga empty stomach.
2. Try to do Yoga outdoors as inhaling fresh air during asanas and pranayam would do wonders to your body and mind. For people living in cities, doing yoga outdoors could be a challenge so they can do it in a spacious well-ventilated room.
3. It is better to do yoga on a mat or carpet or blanket. Doing asanas like headstand on cemented floor could be dangerous; so avoid them.
4. Begin yoga practice with pranayam and stretching; end the yoga session with meditation.
Don’ts
1. Do not practice yoga in a hurry. Yoga is not about holding on; it is about letting go of all fears and anxiety so never ever do asanas in hurry because Yoga is different from gym exercises.
2. Do not force your body to stretch or do any posture against your body’s will. Follow the rhythm of your body and reach the level of perfection slowly.
3. Do not practice tough asanas or postures without expert guidance. If you do it wrongly, you might end up hurting your muscles or getting a sprain.
4. Do not take shower immediately after yoga practice. Make sure you give your body time to warm up and cool down.
Yoga is both an art as well as science. It is always better to take expert consultation while practicing yoga. You can email us your doubts and questions about yoga practice at…..

It is a commitment to yourself which includes not just doing some form of exercise or visiting the gym but also eating healthy food and being positive within. In simple words, all you need is a little time everyday to practice Yoga and Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is a science of life which tells what is good and what is not for a healthy life. It is one of the richest sciences that aim to cure the diseases and problems from within. It also tells us how to use foods, herbs, medicines, surgical procedures and other natural resources for staying healthy.
Yoga is a body and mind practice whereby one can achieve fitness as well as happiness by combining physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. For emotional health, a person can practice Chakra Balancing which is based on using asanas to free energy. So if you are experiencing physical, mental, or emotional imbalances in life gauged through symptoms like anxiety, lethargy, or poor digestion; Chakra balancing can help you immensely.
So one can gain huge benefits with Yoga, Ayurveda and Panchakarma because all these traditional techniques help you to balance & transform yourself naturally.

Know About Panchakarma ( Natural Detox )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Panchakarma as the name implies is about 5 therapeutic procedures that are meant to detoxify your body. So whether the culprit is your sadistic lifestyle or junk food love or too much work stress; whatever toxins you have accumulated in your body, you can get rid of them all with Panchakarma. Isn’t it a good and comforting way to feel hale and hearty? Yes it certainly is. Let us tell you a few more amazing things about Panchakarma –

1. Panchakarma is a tailor-made treatment where the expert Vaid will recommend you
different treatment and concoctions based on Nadi Pariksha and your body prakriti.
Panchakarma does not follow ‘One size fits all’ approach.
2. Abhyangam (body massage with Ayurvedic oil), Swedanam (causing sweating) and
Shirodhara (pouring medicated oil or concoctions over the head) are ancillary
procedures of Panchakarma which are commonly mistaken as main procedures.
3. In case, a person is suffering from some chronic disease, Pnachakarma treatment alone
will not suffice. Panchakarma therapies cleanse the body and get rid of toxins thus
making the body more receptive to Ayurvedic medicines.
4. Therapies like Vamana and Nasya bring a balance in case of Kapha dosha while Virechan
and Raktamokshana are recommended when the body has Pitta imbalance.
5. Raktamokshana is one of the lesser known Panchakarma therapies whereby therapeutic
withdrawal of blood is done to remove excess pitta-related ama from the blood. This is
very beneficial to treat skin or hair disorder.
6. Of all the Panchakarma therapies, Basti is considered the most powerful as it aims to
purify and rejuvenate the colon. Ayurveda focuses on the importance of colon as it
plays an important role in the absorption of nutrients.
7. Basti is very different from Enemas as it also nourishes the tissues and remove toxins
while Enema only cleanses the colon.
8. For availing the maximum benefit of Panchakarma, it is advised to take the treatment
for at least two weeks or maximum for a period of 40 days.

9. Pnachakarma gives holistic benefits when you spend some time on doing meditation
and yoga in the days you take Panchakarma treatment.
10. When done under expert supervision, Panchakarma treatments also strengthen you
emotionally and intellectually.
In case you wish to know more about Panchakarma or enrol for the best Panchakarma
training program in Rishikesh, you can enrol with Ayuskama Rishikesh, the most trusted
name in Yoga and Ayurveda training in Rishikesh.

Why is Panchakarma gaining popularity all over the world?

 

 

What do junk food, cigarettes, negative emotions and sadistic lifestyle do to your body? They create toxins which get accumulated over time and so the body experiences dis-ease. Panchakarma is the best, natural and so very distinct way of detoxifying your body. And that’s why people all over the world prefer Panchakarma treatments.

Panchakarma is age-old natural Ayurveda based process which uses 5 methods to detoxify your body and help it heal. The five treatments are Vamana which means therapeutic emesis, Virechana implying therapeutic purgation, Basti which is therapeutic decoction & oil enema, Nasya therapeutic nasal administration, and Raktamokshana, a method based on blood letting. All these five treatments impact in different ways. And you will be surprised to know that from hair loss to migraine to obesity to poor eye-sight and even poor digestion… everything can be cured with a well-planned Panchakarma treatment.

Talking in Ayurveda language, our bodies have three doshas – Vatta, Pitta and Kapha. Dominance of any one or imbalance in these three invites ailments. But you can balance the doshas in your body and help you body heal itself with Panchakarma treatments.

Most people have this misconception that Panchakarma is just about body massage or Shirodhara. The truth is Panchakarma involves oil baths, and medicated nasal administrations as well that help to release toxins which are called ‘Ama’ in Ayurvedic terminology. No everyone is prescribed an oil massage under Panchakarma as you may think. Panchakarma is done only after an expert Vaid has done your Nadi Parikshan and diagnosed the imbalance in doshas.

Panchakarma treatment is highly customized and it is prescribed according to your body type, dosha, age, and immunity level and in sync with seasonal variations.

In fact, Panchakarma is the most natural way of healing for the body as it does not involve any drugs or medicines; it is based on the principle that body heals itself once it gets rid of all toxins.

The icing on the cake – Panchakarma affects not just the body, it calms your mind as well and helps your soul to connect with the universal energy.

If all this excites you and gives you a hope of healthy life, all you need to do is enrol with Ayuskama Rishikesh to experience the goodness of authentic Panchakarma treatments.

5 effective tips for Yoga beginners

Importance of ayurveda

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The key to master any art or science is to begin very first. This article is a must-read if you
aspire to learn and reach expert level in Yoga. The team of Ayuskama Rishikesh shares most
effective tips that will help yoga beginners a lot –

1. Try to set a particular time for Yoga practice – For the busy bees of today’s
world, setting one particular time is difficult. But to sustain Yoga practice in long
run, you must set aside a particular time every day. Start with 30 minutes and
increase the time to at least an hour daily. Having a ‘Me-Morning’ is the best way
to commit yourself to Yoga. You can give your day a perfect start doing yoga in
the morning.
2. Space does matter – People say you can practice yoga even in your room. Well,
try practicing yoga in an open space, in your home garden or a nearby park
where you can inhale fresh air. You will notice the difference in your energy level
when you choose a cleaner and greener space to practice yoga.
3. Bending takes time – Most of the people feel disheartened initially as they are
not that flexible. They feel Yoga is not for them as they find it difficult to touch
their toes or bend backwards or go flat. Remember, body takes time but
eventually it does flow with the rhythm. So even the most rigid bodies become
flexible with regular yoga practice. Keep doing yoga, and more yoga if you wish
to achieve supreme flexibility.
4. Mark 1 new aasana for each day – Use your personal diary or a Smartphone to
write 1 new aasana which you will practice every day. Do not continue to repeat
same aasans. Make sure you try out new. You can always Google or check our
website to find what new aasanas you can practice at home.
5. Breathe yourself to good health – Yoga is the only fitness form which impacts at
all levels – body, mind and soul. It is important to follow up your daily Yoga
sessions with breathing exercises which will not only detoxify your system but
also cleanse your mind of baseless negativity and worries.

If you are an enthusiastic yoga practitioner and wish to master this traditional art, you can
