Yoga is a very popular discipline for achieving a sense of personal well-being and peace. It is often practiced in conjunction with meditation or with a meditation retreat.
Yoga is often regarded as a physical practice that would engage the body in stretching, breathing, and movement. However, it can also be viewed as a mental exercise that also uses the mind to control the body. In doing so, yoga allows the mind to relax and relaxes the body.
The various poses of yoga include standing poses, lying down, sitting, bending, kneeling, walking, running, dancing, and of course, the basic forward and backstretches. All these positions require the use of the entire body. Each pose requires specific postures, breathing techniques, and postures of alignment.
Stretches are all about the muscles. They vary from pose to pose and therefore, different people will find different stretches suitable for them. For instance, most people find that flexibility exercises are difficult and that most stretching is restricted to an extension. This is because the stretch is a mental exercise and therefore you should stretch yourself mentally as well as physically.
Different positions are beneficial for different people. They differ in the way they work out different parts of the body. This is one of the reasons why yoga is often practiced by many people who do not think they need it. Some positions do more than just ease tension; they stretch the muscles and bones to improve them and have greater flexibility.
Poses that involve more than one joint is called “multi-joint.” These include the rope pose, the swing and bridge, and the plow pose. Multi-joint poses allow each joint to move according to its own ability. They also allow more flexibility because each joint is able to move independently.
Poses like these, the inverted triangle, the triangle of power, and the three-point pose are considered the best when working on your core. The benefit is that they strengthen your core muscles and correct muscle imbalances in the spine. When you strengthen your core, you feel stronger and more flexible.

Remember to breathe. Breathing while performing the poses is vital to how you perform them. This is especially true if you are using the muscles of your arms, shoulders, or chest. The breath can be a guide in balancing yourself and easing tension.
