The search for elixir of everlasting youth and vitality has been sought after by civilizations all around the world, both oriental and occidental. Thus far nothing conclusive has been achieved by such pursuits. We have only heard of failed alchemical stories where people unwittingly used mercury and other metals and semi-precious metals to concoct their own elixirs, only to attain fatal poisons.
But, who needs all of that when there is a better, time-tested and truly effective alternate avenue to youth and vitality? And, interestingly, you can find this alternative at best resorts in India. We are talking of Yogasanas or Yogic poses which arrest the production of free radicals and prevents signs of ageing. Yoga is also beneficial in maintaining your posture and lean muscle structure which prevents you from looking old before your age.
The best way to benefit from Yoga is to enroll at one of the best yoga resorts in India. These places have expert masseuses and Yoga gurus to take care of you and give a holistic Yoga treatment. But the beauty of these messages is that there isn’t a lot of technicality involved and you can easily do these at your home at your own comfort. So let’s get started with the list.
This is a very simple position. Just lie flat on your stomach and raise your upper body from the waist and prop yourself with your elbows. Stay in this position for a few seconds and lie back in your initial prone position. Repeat this a few times for optimum results. The pose will help in strengthening your back and promote blood circulation in your back and neck area.
Saggy abdomen is one major reason why people look older than their actual age. This is the best yoga asana for a toned abdomen. Lie flat on the ground and using your arms and toes prop yourself up until you reach a near-parallel position. This will put a lot of stress on your stomach and upper body. Maintain the position for as long as you can. Initially this will be very straining on your abdomen, but with practice you will gain strength in your core area and your belly flab will start decreasing.
Virabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)
The two poses mentioned before deal exclusively with the upper body. Warrior pose or Virabhadrasana helps you get a strong lower body with stronger gluts, calves and knees. Hold your breath and extend your arms. Slowly exhale and bend your left knee, stretch out your right leg out. As you do that, toes of right feet should be pointing towards the heels of the right feet. Inhale as you return back to the normal position. Repeat with the other leg.
These three yoga asanas will give you an overall toning of the upper and lower body. Practice these every morning for a few minutes and you will see a change start to happen in a few months. For best results and a holistic yoga experience book a stay at one of the best yoga resorts in India.
