I read it somewhere that ‘‘health is not the absence of disease. Rather its dynamicity of life.’’ Yoga and Ayurveda practices help you to have such dynamicity and synchronization in life
Days, when some of us use to smirk at people carrying yoga mat and practising yoga, are gone. Yoga is on the top of list recreational practice along with hiking, swimming and running. Data collected by research institute Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung reveals that about 3 million Germens are regular practitioners of yoga. A huge number of 90% are women. Not only these survey reports show that a large population in intended to start yoga practice. Yoga practice is trending in Germany. There are more than 300 yoga practice studios in Berlin and approx. more than 70 yoga studios in Bremen.
Yoga practice basically originated in India in 17th century and comprises of physical and mental exercise, meditation and deep breathing. The purpose is to align the body, mind and spirit together in harmony and synchronization to improve mental and physical health and performance.
Yoga and Ayurveda- a traditional system of healthcare, shares a similar origin and goal. Both help in improving health and performance and a stable state of mind. Both are closely associated and it’s better to say that both are part of each other. For instance, yoga involves physical and mental practices. On the other hand, abhyanga- an ayurvedic massage helps in detoxifying the body and relaxes the muscles.
Yoga and Ayurveda have significant health benefits both for physical and mental health. Practising yoga helps you have control over your body-mind. A stable state of mind ensures improved intellectual abilities and work performances. Here are some major benefits of practising yoga and ayurvedic practices that you will help you decide why you should choose yoga and Ayurveda over other exercises.

A person’s age is one which appears on his face. Many of us look quite younger than their actual age. One the other hand, some look more than their age.
