What is Yoga according to you?
An exercise, an alternate for gym or Asanas. Yoga is an emotional integration elevation with a touch of the mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something beyond all imagination. From an ancient Indian practice to a beloved fitness practice all around the world.
Some physical concepts of yoga are associated with eating healthy. For instance, yogic practices give you an easy way to measure how much you should consume every day. Your hands are called the “measuring cup”, and the amount you can cup together in them is your ideal diet for the day.
In Ayurveda, this amount is called ‘anjali’. The Indian practice of eating with our fingers is also rooted in the idea of physical well-being. It is said that the act of bringing the fingertips together to gather food represents uniting the five elements in our body, activating Agni or digestive fire.
