3.Who can be a Yoga Teacher
Yoga is all around the place across the globe.People want to learn,practice and become yoga teachers.what are the qualities one need to have to be a Yoga teacher.
Age from eighteen to eighty or more.
Minimum qualification from secondary school certificate to graduation and more or none.
A healthy body is required.
Addiction free being.
If anyone interested in physical exercise and being good at performing Hata yoga.
Able to listen to lectures and read and study yoga texts.
Able to participate in discussions on various yoga topics.
Being proactive,open minded and positive attitude.
Being a teacher demands lot of patience and perseverance.
Having an Attitude is a must.
Being able to help others around you in the light of yoga.
Observation,Awareness and involvement are needed.
Teacher should be a guide and a mentor.
Posture or Bhangima or Asana has very important place in Hata yoga(physical yoga).
But to master the posture it takes lot of effort,practice and dedication.
It is not the age but sheer grit and determination makes one good at performing posture well.
Flexibility improves with regular practice.
As a yoga practitioner for the last 34 years since 1987 I have some perception regarding Asana Siddhi(Posture perfect).
Sequential steps to master the posture.
Step 1 : Able to perform the posture corectly
Step 2 : Alignment and symmetry
Step 3 : Balance and control over the posture
Step 4 : Posture should be firm and has to be performed in relaxation
Step 5 : Able to reach a state of Kevala Kumbhaka (Natural cessation of breath happens)
Step 6 : Now the posture becomes effortless,breath becomes steady,body and mind or in union,in this stage meditation happens naturally and the mind is calm.
These are the steps one has to go through and finally reach a state of Dharana(attentiveness),Dhyana(meditation) and Samadhi (A state of nothingness i.e Silence)
This the ultimate purpose of posture.Posture may be started as physical but ends up in mental and moves beyond.
5.Stress Management and Yoga
Is Stress the killer?
Father of modern medicine Hippocrates pronounced eighty-five percent of diseases originate from the mind two thousand five hundred years ago. Now doctors say ninty five percent of the diseases originate from the mind. Mind has become a havoc to our existence personally.
The stress,tension,speed in daily life killing people as psychosomatic diseases. Deadlines,targets and over ambitions and everyone wants to prove to the world that he or she is something.This is making us to run faster and faster.But body is not able to run faster like mind.Body is taking its toll.Body has its own intelligence.It wants to work on its own,our monkey minds are not allowing the body machine to go on its pace which is made for hundred years.
Tiredness, stress, body pains, irritability, frustration, getting upset easily, getting sick often very easily.This is our daily life.In every household kilos of medicines we can find lying to be eaten every day. Diabetes, Hypertension, Backache, Thyroid, obesity(indiscriminate eating),heart problems,women’s health issues at the young age of thirty, forty.
Heard someone saying, out of every five marriages two divorces.What is happening to human relations. What is happening. Have we looked into all these things. STOP. Look into all these things, think, reflect and give a serious thought my dear friends. Why this disturbance in human life like never before in human history. Success, good jobs, earning in lakhs , living in villas, travelling around the globe, roaming in big cars, more fashionable, looking beautiful and handsome ,children are getting educated in international schools.
what is happening.Science,communication,information,internet,knowledge,comforts,medical care,ultra modern life style.. why have we disturbed the life.. not able to sleep well ,always charged up and tensed up, cannot talk to another human beings with open and whole heart for a few minutes ,but always fiddling with smart phone, whats app, you tube,mails,calls. We don’t mind our eating, sleeping and rest. We want more and more money,more show off ,we want to be in elite, living in false prestige, insecurity, fear, conflict, disharmony and forgot the meaning and beauty of love.
Shabby relationships, street smartness, everyone is thinking others as fools and they are clever. Is this the life we have to live. Life is relaxation. Life is patience. Life is Love. Life is care. Life is awareness. one life to live and one life to love. Let us live a healthy, happy and peaceful life. let us control, cut and remove stress from our daily life. Yoga has all the answers to above pointed things.
