adopting posture according to student 
Today I am writing to you to sharing this important information with you to avoid any injury while doing yoga.  To avoid any injury in yoga you need to develop a self respecting awareness. If you ignore signs of pain you may be harming your muscles,nerves or spinal discs. Unless you had years of experience and knowledge exactly what you are doing pushing yourself in to a painful stretch will not only court injury it will also create a state of fear and anxiety. Kindly consider Pain as a positive sign to know something is not right. Kindly analyze the nature of problem.

Here at our yoga school we are always concern about the safety of our valuable students and providing best of our knowledge and teaching. We use holistic approach of teaching yoga in our general classes or teacher training courses in Rishikesh.We believe with regular and consistent practice make a lot of changes then pushing or forcing our muscles to attain certain desired postures/asana. we need to develop right attitude towards Hatha yoga practice rather then coping some one else. yoga is more about mental flexibility  then physical.









Note:-We are yoga teacher not a doctor or therapist and we are not claiming any kind of medical assistance. This article is only about an awareness  that  how you can avoid injuries it does not provide any relief from pain. We are not yoga therapist.


 If you have any concern or wants to know about courses or activities please feel free to write me any time. 
Thank you

Sunday, July 17, 2016


Hatha yoga focus on purification .for this there are 6 methods today i share one of them, 

Many of us suffer colds and have sinus or allergies problems, Yoga offers simple but effective way to prevent these problems. In Hatha yoga tradition there is a term known as     Kriyas (internal purification) ,
One of the kriya known as Jal neti (use of warm saline water) It is very useful for sinus/ allergies/ & other respiratory sickness. It clean and purify the nasal passage and brings its natural strength back.
Jal neti is an ancient technique to wash out nasal passage and to prevent cold and allergies. The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of our body’s first lines of defense against invading microbes. Neti kriya naturally cleans, refresh and protect these passages. It is all natural, non addictive and have no side effects.
With regular practice of it you can minimize the adverse effect of pollution on our respiratory system and it can be beneficial for those suffering with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. It helps to clean sinus and it is an aid to prevent headache.

Ingredients

Tilt your head to left side and insert neti pot tip to your right nostril.(if right nostril is blocked do this process  from other side first) open your mouth for breathing purpose and allow water to flow from other nostril. In case water goes on your mount try to find out correct angel so that water does not travel to your mouth. Practice it till pot is empty then refill pot and do it again from other side. This is one round.
After finishing it make sure to dry your nostril with repaid exhale. And then rest for a while.
