A life more healthy and balanced requires a change of habits, as well as practicing the physical activities regularly and eating healthily. But, when the search for harmony in all aspects of life, it becomes a practice and philosophy, it is possible to go beyond simple changes and live in harmony with the purposes, based on health care and well-being. Between these philosophies and practices, the highlights of the yoga: a state of consciousness, more light, full, and attentive, which encompasses all aspects of life – body, mind, and emotions.
According to the yoga terapeuta Tuane Abreu, in the philosophy of yoga there are practices that work the body postures, the direction of attention and concentration, as well as the songs that help to focus and calm down. But not just that. “The truth is that you perform yoga in coexistence with people, in the way that you lead your affective relationships, at work, with friends, in the way you eat. It is all related to the way how you look at life. This is the philosophy,” he explains.
Contrary to what many think, yoga is not considered a physical activity, but a mental practice, carried out from the physical body. “Any practice of yoga will stimulate and change the body, but not as a physical activity. The body work is there because it is a firm body that sustains a firm mind, since the goal of yoga is the mind,” adds Tuane.
Yoga + Food
When the subject is yoga and power supply, also applies to the maxim “you are what you eat”. After all, the philosophy of yoga is based on the quest for lightness and harmony of body, emotions and mind and, therefore, the power play is the key. Fatty foods and heavy will inevitably leave us physically and mentally more slow and loaded. Therefore, it is important to maintain a healthy diet. “A healthy diet is always favourable and, when combined with the practice of yoga, it enhances the benefits, because food is more light and natural to bring more life.Therefore, it is important to eat healthy foods and that have a good energy, such as fruits, seeds, salads and whole foods,” he adds.
Also in accordance with Tuane, the function of food goes far beyond nutrition physical, because if you understand that everything has an energy, even the food. As the philosophy of yoga is the search for balance and lightness, consume foods that are lighter and more healthy without a doubt can help you reach the goal. “The power supply interferes in the mind, therefore, the ideal is to give preference to foods lighter that, inevitably, will be more energy healthy for the mind and the body”, explains the yogaterapeuta.
The practice of yoga is ancient and originated in India, within the religion we know as Hinduism, although this yoga is not considered a religion. The goal is the search for a balance in all areas of life through practices such as asanas, which are postures, pranayamas are the breathing techniques that help direct attention and concentration, mantras, which are the songs that help maintain focus and calm the mind, among other practices that also help to discipline the mind and the senses.
In the west, the most popular style is Hatha Yoga, which works more on the bodily postures. There are multiple lines and some are branches of Hatha. “The philosophical basis is the same, but the targeting also, what differentiates one from another is the way in which they are performed. There are practices of yoga, for example, that do not work with the asanas,” explains the yogaterapeuta. “So, for those who want to start, it is recommended to take classes and experiment to see which style suits best with your pace and with what you are looking for at the moment”.
Who can practice yoga
According to Tuane, yoga is a practice for any person, at any age, because there are adaptations for each age group. “For children, for example, the practice has to be more fun and for adults, more vigorously. As for pregnant women, and people with more advanced age it is necessary to be more lightweight, as well as for those who have a disability and need an adaptation,” concludes the yogaterapeuta.
