Quieten your mind with Yoga:
Normally, it is considered by a common person that yoga is just a physical exercise. For those who think the same way I would like them to know that its not just physical exercise but it keeps your mind quiet. Yoga is not all about body or physique. It is the connection of mind and body. There is inter-relationship between body and mind. If you are feeling pain in your body your mind cannot be at peace and vise versa.
The most part of yoga lies in breathing. The quality of the breath reflects the quality of the mind. There is a connection between our mental, emotional, and psychological states and the pace and depth of our breath. For example, when we are frightened, we take short, quick, shallow breaths. When we are deeply relaxed or asleep, we take long, deep breaths. Yoga helps in controlling the breath and makes you feel relax and good. Accepting yoga in your daily life will not only give you perfect body but it will also provide you great sense of peace or tranquillity.
Yoga is all about knowing and controlling the breath power. While our mental state influences our breathing pattern, we can choose to change our breathing pattern and thereby change our mental state. When you relax and slow the pace of the breath, the pace of the mind is similarly calmed and quieted. Over time, you begin to act and think from a state of peace. The more time you spend in this place, the more likely you are to act with patience, understanding, and compassion.
