In the present times, very few people retain their strength and vitality till the middle age. More and more people we come across look much older than they actually are. Talking about aging, there are several factors that leads to ageing (apart from age) - misuse of the body, over-exaggeration of the mind, non-nutritious foods, poor posture while working, sedentary lifestyle, and so on. However, you would be happy to know that our body has the unique ability to renew or regenerate at the cellular level. The best way to attain this would be by practicing yoga regularly.
Benefits Of Yoga In Anti Ageing
Practicing Yoga = Fit Body = Active Mind = Glowing Skin = Anti Ageing
Yoga acts positively in maintaining the health of the human body. One of
the most prominent benefits of Yoga is the ability to be young once
again. Apart from revitalizing the mind, Yoga rejuvenates the body as
well. People, who constantly practice Yoga, have found immense benefits
from it and feel better than what they felt in their younger years.
There is a very famous concept in Yoga philosophy. According to it, a
person's age is determined by the flexibility of his spine, not the
number of years he has lived.
Yoga helps in slowing down the aging process, by providing elasticity to
the spine, firming up the skin, removing tension from the body,
strengthening the abdominal muscles, eliminating the likelihood of a
double chin, improving the quality of loose arm muscles, correcting poor
posture and so on. Thus, of the numerous benefits of Yoga, anti-ageing
is an important one. All you need is patience (remember, there is no one
day benefit policy!!) and the determination (you need to be strong
willed to practice everyday) to practice Yoga.
Yoga increases the mental competence in a person, making him/her feel
younger. It possesses the power to fight the internal as well as the
external diseases and dangers. This is the key to help an individual to
live longer. There are various types of Yoga, of which Hatha Yoga
basically aims at making people live long. Some of the anti-ageing
properties of Yoga are long life, increased resistance to diseases,
increased vitality, and rejuvenation of glands, looking young,
improvement in vision and hearing and many other mental and emotional
Remember, there is no magic potion that can extend the longevity of
life. If there is any key to longer healthy life, it has to be Yoga. One
can successfully extend the period of life by constantly following Yogic
practices. Even the tiniest detailing of ageing, such as gray hair can
be dealt with Yoga. By practicing inverted Yoga postures, you can turn
back gray hair to its natural color. These practices also delay the
onset of gray hair, thereby making a person look younger. Even people
with the inability to get up on their own, can enjoy replenished
flexibility and freedom from joint pain, by practicing Yoga.
