The human body is designed to move twist, spin, excel, slow down and relax. It is our ship in the sea of life and helps us experience everything around us. This is why we need to realize that we must take good care of it in order to really take care of ourselves. Almost every road to finding relaxation, finding out who we truly our or achieving enlightenment involves hard and continues practice and care for our bodies.
Each of us moves around during the day, at least a little, and some will even stretch their hands and backs, but most of us do our stretching and bending forwards, when instead we should be doing a back bend.
At first you may think that it is logical to stretch forward and bend forward to relax, but almost every activity we do during the day involves moving our body forward. We tie our laces, we put on our trousers, we wash the dishes etc. Even when we are sitting down to chat on our PCs or watch TV our body is twisted forwards.
This is what we forget, the other half of the puzzle to keep our back healthy. Hatha yoga asanas are all about taking care of your spine. These asanas will relax your back and neck, relieve the stress from your shoulders, elbows and improve your posture. There are numerous benefits to something you could easily fit in your daily routine to make sure you are taking care of your spine.
They will make your body more flexible, improve scoliotic deformities and stimulate the sympathetic nervous system. Studies have shown that back bending helps to eliminate constipation, improves the work of the kidneys, improves digestion, helps the vertebrae, and realigns the spine.
This practice releases endorphins and opens the fourth chakra. The positive effects on your body will also have a positive influence on your mood. You will feel much better, happier and exhilarated. After you improve the circulation of your vital organs and free your body from back pain and neck pain you will understand how Hatha yoga asanas have helped you release emotional and psychological tensions which very often reflect on the spine.
Hatha yoga asanas are considered as a way to unite the opposites. They are the place where the sun meets the moon and they could be thing to help you achieve balance.
