Yogic Shvsan Ang Sanchalan (Yogic exercises)
Our body parts are made up of combining many cells together and our body is made up of combining all these parts together. If, we want to keep our body healthy then we have to make our each and every part healthy and if we have to make our each and every part healthy then we have to make each and every cell also healthy. Like when we don’t use our vehicle then all the parts in the vehicle gets rusted. Rusted vehicles either do not move at all or move with difficulty as normal.
Our body is also like this vehicle we have many systems in our body and many parts. These parts should keep getting new energy and peace at a regular basis. If these parts do not get energy on regular basis then they will stop working in normal way and they will start getting rusty and will get stiff and painful.
If our body parts are not working properly then it directly affects our body, mind and life. If some parts are sick and are not complete then our life also becomes incomplete. Our Yogis and Rishis have said if we do yogic Ang Sanchalan then our body parts will get healthy and energetic and in turn will lead to healthy body, mind and senses.
When we do Ang Shanchalan then besides our body parts our joints also get stronger and get more energy .This energy gives us new hope and happiness. With these exercises our joints, blood and all body parts get more flexibility besides energy. When the flexibility increases in the body then it gets easy to do yogic Asana and pranayam, etc. and we get better results. Body gets free from stiffness, tightness, soaring, weakness and pain.
Yogic Ang Sanchalan is a very important part of yoga practice and we should include this in your practice and make full use of it.

Let me show another face of India and the life in the ashram. The way you look at India depends on the perspective. If you want to see colors you will find it, if you want to listen to music you will find it and if you want to find yourself you will definitely find thyself.

After a chilly winter …..spring is back in action. Paramanand Ashram is back with numerous flowers. This post is for everyone to take a break and checkout how ashram looks in Spring. I don’t know about you but for me even watching these flowers is a kind of meditation too. Perhaps now is best place and time to do Meditation.

Most of you would have thought about Sanskrit but that’s not what I am talking about. I know that all the Yoga scriptures were originally written in Sanskrit then got translated into several languages but that doesn’t mean it’s only for Sanskrit speaking language. In fact there are a very few people alive who can converse in Sanskrit.
As per my observation and research the only language which can help in truly understanding Sanskrit is BODY LANGUAGE. It’s your body which tells you which asanas you can do, which asanas you should do, which asanas may cause injuries or which asana may heal you.
Now isn’t just about asanas right, so what about meditation? well here you not actually required to do anything. Just concentrate 🙂
Well these were just my thoughts hope you will like it. 🙂
ONE WORLD ONE LANGUAGE!
