International Yoga Day 2022: Heres How To Plan Your Jeevan Chakra For A Disease Free & Energetic Life

International Yoga Day 2022: Pranayamas improve overall health

If you wanted to start your life from scratch all over again then how would you be able to cultivate that level of perfection in your health?  All the yogic techniques and practices that exist only aim to sharpen you and develop your brain power. If you want to lead an energetic and disease-free life then you must begin the practice of yoga. The problem however is that even though most of us start on this healthy routine not everyone is able to keep up and sustain this habit.

Diagnose your health condition

This certainly requires a level of commitment and discipline from our end. Transformation is a process that needs time and investment if you want to be able to achieve success. The first step towards achieving this level of health is to diagnose yourself. You can schedule a full body check-up to find out what your internal health is like. When you have a clear picture of your sugar levels, blood work, thyroid, and other related factors then you will know how to proceed with your yoga practice.  

Siddha Walk 



Siddha walk is an ancient yogic spiritual practice. It has the power to not only accelerate your physical health but can also elevate your mental and spiritual development. It is a dynamic system based on a scientific approach that can drastically transform the human body and mind. In Siddha walk, the shape of 8 or infinity plays a very important and powerful role. Each loop (south to north and north to south) should be done for at least 21 mins, adding up to 42 mins at a time.

Pranayama

Take care of your diet

Eat wholesome food as this provides your body with the many essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Eat a balanced portion of protein and avoid carbs. One of the best things you can include more fruits, vegetables, salads, and natural foods. When you do this, you can eliminate unnecessary sugar, added fats, and processed food.
