Yoga is a vast ocean encompassing several aspects of the human body. It has something for everyone, be it a child, adult, pregnant or elderly. It can’t be limited to a single style but is more precisely described as a combination of different yoga poses, breathwork, meditation, and lifestyle practices that enhance the quality of life by manifolds. However, it is very crucial to get the poses and timings right while practicing the poses and so it is highly recommended to seek help from a trained expert before going solo on the yoga mat.

ಹೌದು, ನಾನೂ ಯೋಗದ ಲಾಭ ಪಡೆದವರಲ್ಲಿ ಒಬ್ಬಳು. ಕಾಲೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಓದುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾಗ ಋತುಚಕ್ರದ ದಿನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊಟ್ಟೆ ನೋವಿನಿಂದ ಬಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದೆ. ಆಗ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಲೇಖನದಲ್ಲಿ ಆ ನೋವಿಗೆ ಯೋಗಾಭ್ಯಾಸ ಮದ್ದು ಎಂಬುದನ್ನು ಓದಿ ಹೊನ್ನಾವರದಲ್ಲಿ ಡಾ.ಕುಸುಮ ಸೊರಬ ಅವರ ಬಳಿ ೧೫ ದಿನಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಯೋಗಾಸನ, ಪ್ರಾಣಾಯಾಮ, ಜಲನೇತಿ, ಸೂತ್ರನೇತಿ ಕಲಿತೆ. ನಿತ್ಯ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಒಂದು ತಾಸು ಮಾಡುತ್ತ ಬಂದೆ. ಒಂದೇ ತಿಂಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊಟ್ಟೆ ನೋವು ಮಾಯ. ನಂತರ ನನ್ನ ಹಲವು ಆರೋಗ್ಯ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಪರಿಹಾರ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದು ಇದೇ ಯೋಗ. ಮೆನೊಪಾಸ್ ನಿಂದ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳಿಗೂ ಪರಿಹಾರ ನೀಡಿದ್ದು ಇದೇ ಯೋಗ. ತೂಕ ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗದಂತೆ ನೋಡಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದು ಇದೇ ಯೋಗ. ಕಚೇರಿಯ ಟೆನ್ಶನ್ ಇದ್ದರೂ ನಿರಾಳತೆ ಮೂಡಿಸುವುದು ಇದೇ ಪ್ರಾಣಾಯಾಮ.

Very nice article sir. Good to know that great Universities accept and lauded our Yoga for different issues of the body.
I do practice Yoga ies, Kriya Yoga since 4 years. As you rightly said Yoga is a vast ocean! encompasses body, mind and beyond!
In 2015, I was fortunate to meet one of the great Yogis of Himalayas; became His disciple. Many Scietists and researchers dumbfounded about His age. He is beleived to be living morethan 500 years!!! Through His prime disciple Dr Ramesh Singh Chauhan, I was lucky to learn Kriya Yoga. Dr Ramesh is a world famous Oncologist and great Scientist (designed a machine, which produces electricity by chanting Purusha Sukta).
I, along with many Sadhaks, successfully completed four levels of Kriya Yoga. Through continues practice, we get amazing results regarding body and mental health. In many instances, I saw cancer patients become very healthy and are living very normal life. Through Kriya Yoga, we can arrest any diseases and restrict them from spreading throughout the body.
I am seeing, people with great sorrow come to Babaji and Dr Ramesh and go with great releaf!
That’s the power of Yoga!!!
