We all admire Yoga and love to do it. From physicians to fitness experts, the credibility of Yoga has been taken a very large space in recommendations to get away from many of the health problems. But, somehow the actual meaning and the benefits of yoga is still inherent under the myths and misconceptions of people. Whether you are new to yoga or you have knowledge about it from others, society would try to put many of the stereotypes thinkings on you regarding this. But in reality, yoga deserves more attention and should be out of all the glitches or myths which are hindering our health.
Hence, here are some myths about yoga we all should know so that the actual meaning and benefits of it can be exposed:
Myth 1: You should have a flexible body to start yoga
If you think that you are not flexible enough now, then imagine yourself after 10 or 20 years. You might feel difficulties while practising yoga in your initial days, but you should understand that flexibility doesn’t come easily. You have to build it like muscles. Yoga is the only one which will help you to be more flexible. So, it is absolutely wrong to preserve such stereotypes.
Myth 2: Yoga is a separate religion
It is absolutely wrong. Yoga is a tool of spirituality and a promotion of being kind, loveable and compassionate towards own self and others. The most important part of yoga is it does not promote any religion. It even restricts us to judge any religion. Everybody is a human being. No religion barrier can limit yogas.
Myth 3: It is not a work out:
Yoga has various types. If you are a beginner, it would not be possible for you to get too much into hard yoga asanas. It is all about your body capabilities. If you want to try more vigorous and hard work outs then go for power yogas. This type of yoga will help you to increase strength and burn calories. Work outs also do the same with our health.
It is too much time consuming:
If you are doing yoga deductively, it would help your health to stay better. Even if you are doing yoga for 10 minutes. It depends on you how much time you want to dedicate to this. However, it is true that yoga does not start reacting immediately. It takes a little bit more time. But every session of yoga helps your body.
Yoga is not for men:
Just because women are too much into yoga and pilates, it does not mean yoga is just for women. It first invented by men and practised by them since thousand years ago. The popularity of yoga is growing again amongst men. In fact, there are many yoga poses which are absolutely designed for men body. All you men out there, if you still feel that gaming is the only option for you then we would like to say, you are missing a great experience of your life.
