Our body is the primary conveyor in this journey and keeping it in shape and optimum health is the objective of Hatha yoga. Since its inception, Hatha yoga has evolved and has gone through several tests to prove its efficacy. Today it is a very well established and scientifically recognised facilitator of human health.
Surprisingly, Hatha yoga can be adopted by everyone and can be modified according to individual needs and conditions. It provides substantial transformation in our tissues and cells, the way our body functions and the way we relate to ourselves and to the world. For sure, it has the ability to render our body, mind and soul a harmony that is much sought after in today's jet age lifestyle.
As we age, our body starts exhausting the resources of energy required for its functioning.
This happens because with time the integrity of our bodily systems is disoriented. When the functioning becomes improper, the body starts debilitating, losing strength and stamina. Movement decreases. Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayama are the integral tools of Hatha yoga that help get rid of these consequences of ageing by removing excess toxins from the body, retain the balance in the system, ensure efficient endocrine functioning, which is responsible for different body conditions, and enriched supply of oxygen to the tissues, enabling longevity and health.
The most vulnerable process in old age is the digestion, which frequently gets disturbed due to lack of proper enzyme production. In yoga, this is termed as mandagni or the lack of agni, the digestive fire. It restricts proper assimilation and digestion. It also causes inadequate nutrition, which itself is a major contributor to several disorders.
Here are demonstrated a few asanas, which can give vigour to the digestive organs and maintain the enzyme actions. These asanas are well modified, keeping in mind the advanced age of the practitioners.
Please consult your physician before trying the postures.
This is a good posture for the abdomen and digestive organs as it provides a deep massage and generates enough pressure for the blood to go to the deep parts, which are deprived of it due to static posture.
