THE YOGA WAY ON INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY!
Do you feel groggy, without motivation or purpose? Do you feel like your body doesn’t move like it used to and when you attempt to workout at the gym your muscles don’t support you? Well, your solution may well be yoga. Yoga is a multilayered exercise and mindfulness system. The style uses the stretch and pull of certain poses to stress on the balance and strength the body holds. This process affects both the physical and mental aspects of daily life, giving you freer movement and clearer thoughts. Yoga Day is here, and we at RDX feel calm and encourage you to join in to benefit from the 10% discount on all our yoga products to help you get in the right headspace.
A Brief History Of Yoga.
Yogic meditation and physical exercise have been around for a long time. Somewhere around 350 BCE the first scripts of Buddhist, Hindu and Jainist texts detail controlling breath and further the essential energies of the body. They outlined these in their religious beliefs and mantras of the time: focused movements, deep meditation and reaching for the inner higher consciousness each individual possesses.
What Is Yoga?
Yoga and meditation are often spoken of side by side in a historical context. Finding or discovering yourself through the art of being a yogi is considered to be a parcel of that process. In the form of a consciousness exercise stretching and meditating teaches a lot. This can include keeping a calm, stable mind despite the stress of stretches and muscle pain. That we celebrate healing and physical mastery on International Yoga Day.
The original form of yoga may require more corepower and flexibility. We recommend you start out slow, get basic stretches and breathing down first. Those basic exercises would include the cross legged position, the downward dog and the tree pose. Others that could help you include the bridge position, the warrior positions, seated forward stretch and the reclining twist. A variety of basic twists to expand your human flexibility. Balancing on one foot and equalizing the weight between both legs and balancing straight. But mostly simple stretches are your best ways of entering the Yoga world and maintaining Yoga everyday.

How To Get Started In?
Some consider it important to find yourself a teacher or yogi. A yogi can help and give guidance to you through not only the movements but also the mental aspects of the art. The modern day internet variant of meditative exercise truly can be done without as well. Yoga like any other fitness exercise is dependent only upon your dedication and commitment to the art form. In return it can provide you with balance, stability and mental relaxation.
The art form can be done anywhere and everywhere, be it a park, a beach, a forest or a rooftop. Furthermore, it requires mental isolation and focus on one’s own body during the allocated time. That way Yoga can provide you solace in the fast paced city life and further your connection to yourself alone on a mountain. So it isn’t surprising that the yoga circle is growing on a daily basis globally.
