Gaining Posture with Yoga

Yoga focuses on posture, which its practices include the thunderbolt, easy, and chair posture. Of course, it is your choice if you want to create your own poise while sitting, preparing for yoga. Asanas (Sanskrit Posture) teaches on to adapt to his or her environment.

The motive behind few yogic practices is to teach one to master refinement and balance. In yogin terms, posture is the connection between the mind and body. According to modern philosophers, the posture is the temple. The modern philosophers are close to the truth, since the bible tells us that the “Body is the temple of God.” In summary, the posture is a position, which the body uses to express.

Posture is a strong connection, since it enhances communication. For instance, when one fold his/her arms firmly over the chest area, the message one sends is confident, or strong, yet the wall behind it demonstrates fear. In summary, this poise is a sign that someone feels threaten. In addition, the body language shows traits of nervousness, negativity, and/or a defensive attitude. When a person sits cross-legged, the posture is said to send a signal of tension.

I have to continue studying posture before I agree with the theorist, opinionates, philosophers, experts, etc that claim what signals are behind body languages. However, yogic methods teach us good posture, which the concept behind yogin languages is to use the body to express self, while using the mind to demonstrate strength.

The best postures are seen in high-ranking officials. These men and women often walk with their head high, chin out, and one palm gripping the other behind their back. The posture signifies a symbol of confidence and superiority.

Military men and women, often walk with their stomach, chest, throat, etc, out, which is a sign of fearlessness. Yoga helps one to reach this level, which when Yogini or Yogi meets yoga’s destination, thus he adopts such gestures that stress relaxation, confidence, authority, etc

We see additional examples of superior or confident people when we see one with palm-in-palm and the hands on the hips. The moral of this story is that yoga teaches you to boost confidence, hope, faith, power, strength, etc.

To help you see how yoga works to enhance posture, let’s try a few steps. The first step you will need a chair. The chair-sitting position starts with an armless chair. Make sure the chair will support your weight. Now, sit on the chair, with the buttocks toward the front edge. Do not lean back in the chair. Place your feet flat on the ground, and place your hands on your knees. Place the palms down and close your eyes. Continue by rocking the spine. Do this a number of times. At this point, you should be slump forward and arching back. You want to focus on the complete range of movement.

Next, sit upright in a comfortable position. Make sure your body is halfway flanked by the dual extremes. Next, raise the chest. Do not overstate the curves in the lower back as you balance your torso and head. As you, practice yogic methods, be sure that the hips, shoulder, and ears are aligned.

Next, repeat the process. As you repeat the process, this time pay close attention to your posture. Allow your senses to connect with your body, and notice how you feel afterward. You can continue this step daily to work toward advanced yoga methods.
