Yoga. My experience and impressions of practicing Hatha yoga
My first attempts
I want to familiarize you with yoga, more exactly with Hatha yoga. Yoga is a miracle! I have been doing yoga for 7 years. I used to do my yoga six times a week. Unfortunately, I have moved to another house, and it takes a lot of time to come to my work since then I have been doing my yoga three times a week. I had been a really unlucky guy and an unhappy person before I started practicing yoga. I had many diseases at that time. I had a heartache, problem with my prostate gland and other. Before that time I had tried to start doing yoga maybe twice but gave up doing my exercises in a month. Only the third time, I started doing yoga more or less regularly. Thanks for my friend who brought me to the Teacher.
Miracle of yoga
I started practicing my yoga at a studio and reading books of the great teachers of yoga – Bellur Krishnamachar Sundaraja Iyengar, Swami Sivananda, etc. But the main thing is practice. Ones again yoga is a magic! I do not how it works, but it works.
Here are my impressions:
I do not know how to explain this, but yoga transform your surround – not only people but your space.
As for me I started visiting a foreign country, my income increased, and everything at my work went excellent – I had a promotion. Yoga is like a pillow, which protects you in bad situations.
I solved many health’s problems.
I felt better, my stomach began to work better, my kidneys are not ill more (before I started doing yoga I had several little stones in my kidneys). I reinforce my muscles. Once, I have injured my knee, and my doctor told me that it was not serious, but it hurt, not so much but it was exhausted. And when I started practicing Virasana (yoga asana) my pain went away. At that time I did ultrasound research and found my prostate gland was a little bit increased. In one year I repeated the research and everything was good. My spine became more flexible.
A causeless feeling of happiness.
Usually, in order to be happy, the average man must have a reason – big car, good pone, a vast house, much money. But what if the reasons for your happiness suddenly disappear? I will start finding another cause and trying to achieve it. And repeat this cycle again and again. Yoga can give you the causeless sense of happiness.
Yoga increased the level of my mindfulness.
When I do yoga, I direct one’s attention to my body and breath. I acquired the skill to stay conscious of my body, to pay attention to my close people, to nature and animals.
I was really astonished when I started noticing my intuition.
I have heart slightly noticeable thoughts in my mind how I must act in different situations. Of cause I did not listen to my intuition very often. It was even not clear thoughts, but some strange feeling what I must to do. Honestly, I cannot explain these feelings clearly.
I suppose I have become more generous, kindness man.
To sum up I strongly recommend you to start doing yoga for your health, your mind, your soul.
