Mend Your Body, Bend Your Mind – Yoga &The Five Rites Tibetan Rejuvenation Secrets
It goes without saying that many of us are like very rigid containers. We are stiff, to put it mildly. When we are so restricted, our quality of life takes the backseat. Yoga can help bring your life back on track, gently.
By Rajgopal Nidamboor
Those who practice yoga regularly are so flexible that you think they are amorphous.
Interestingly though, some of them, at times, become mentally and emotionally ill-at-ease. This is mainly due to fascial limitations that rob the relaxed nature in you and lead you to areas of feeling and consciousness that are off-limits.
Fascia is a complex of connective tissue casing that surrounds and envelopes the muscles.
To highlight an example — a collapsed, closed chest protects the heart from harm; in so doing, it can shut off communication and compassionate exchange too. In the course of time the bones, which are dynamic and continually reforming themselves, remodel around the position we have established.
You look rigid.
This may be self-created — to an extent. Sometimes more; sometimes less.
Yoga is an all-inclusive and graceful approach to freeing yourself from such a trap.
If you are the do-alone type, take a yoga class. If you are already into the practice, forget about the guidebook, and get down to ground realities.
Remember — yoga works slowly and gently. It is only when you slowly move a little beyond each time into the asanas can you stretch your fascial planes bit-by-bit. This will, in turn, expand your range of physical positions that you can get into. You will gradually find yourself walking differently, and moving more comfortably and freely.
It also suggests that you have not only expanded on your range of mental and emotional spaces you entered, but also achieved relaxed control in the activity.
The same idea holds good for meditation. If you are able to sit for meditation and have the flexibility to move your mind into new places of your consciousness, it denotes that you are in tune with yourself. If not, you only express blocked-out memories.
Remember — if the body cannot move freely, the mind cannot either.
Loosen Up, Lightly
It is only through the consistent use of a few basic yoga postures you will be able to loosen your physical and mental limitations, and open up new possibilities in either plane.
The best thing to do is to introduce an abridged routine — maybe, a bend forwards, a bend backwards, and a twist. After you go through the practice, lie down quietly and observe the effects of each posture.
This ain’t all. It is also said that the positions that are most difficult to practice provide the best recompense — mainly because the tightest limitations are hiding the most!
It is, therefore, imperative for each one of us to understand that the fundamental nature of yoga, or any other exercise, is dual. One, it helps you to bounce back from your limits, opening new experiences. Two, it helps you reconnect to the spark of openness and being alive fully.
The more you use your yoga exercise sessions as a time for exploring yourself, the better effects you will experience.
However, for all this to happen, you need to bear in mind yoga’s cardinal principle — you should be attentive to your mind, body, heart, and spirit.
