The Five points of Yoga (Sivananda Yoga)
Proper Exercise: Yoga exercises focus on the health of the spine, its strength and flexibility. By maintaining the spine's flexibility and strength through exercise, circulation is increased and the nerves receive their proper supply of nutrients and oxygen. The exercises also affect the internal organs and endocrine system.
Proper Breathing: Yoga teaches us how to maximize lung capacity and how to control the breath. This increases vitality and mental clarity.
Proper Relaxation: By learning how to deeply relax all the muscles of the body, you can thoroughly rejuvenate your nervous system and attain a deep sense of inner peace. Yoga teaches us how to achieve this state of complete relaxation.
Proper Diet: The Yogic diet is a vegetarian one, consisting of pure, simple, natural foods which are easily digested and promote health. The Yogic diet will help you attain a high standard of health, keen intellect and serenity of mind.
Positive Thinking and Meditation: We become what we think. Through methods of positive thinking you will learn how to entertain positive and creative thoughts which contribute to vibrant health and a peaceful, joyful mind.
