PostSubject: Yoga - The fitness guru   Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:28 am

Friends not to forget the yoga practices that our country provides to the world for physical and mental fitness. I guess many of us would have practiced it during our childhood. I still use this fitness tool. No time to discuss in my own language. Just select the pose you want to practice and check out in the following website for directions: http://www.a2zyoga.com. Hope this is useful.

Akarshana Dhanurasana - Pulled Bow Pose
"Akarshana" means "pulling" and "Dhanus" means "bow" in Sanskrit. In
this posture, the big toes are pulled up to the ear (alternately) as an
archer pulls back the string of his bow and gets ready to shoot an
arrow.



Anantasana
This is a pose named after the sleeping position of Lord Vishnu.



Ardha Halasana - The Half-Plough Pose
"Ardha" means 'half' and 'Hala' means 'plough' in.









Ardha Matsyendrasana - The Half-Spinal Twist
"Ardha"
means "half" in Sanskrit. Since the full posture is difficult to be
practiced, the half-posture, which is easier, is followed widely. This
posture was first promoted by the great Yogi Matsyendranath, one of the
founders of Hatha Yoga, and hence the name.



Ardha Padmasana - Half-Lotus Pose
"Ardha"
means "half" and "Padma" means "lotus" in Sanskrit. Those who are
unable to assume the full Padmasana posture using both legs as
described above owing to the stiffness of their legs or bulky thighs
may begin practicing with one leg at a time alternately until they are
able to develop the full posture. With the practice of this asana
daily, they will be able to take that posture for a long time without
discomfort and switch on to the full Padmasana posture after sufficient
practice.



Ardha Shalabhasana - Half-Locust Pose
"Shalabha"
means "locust" in Sanskrit. The final position of this asana resembles
a locust when it lowers its head to eat and raises its tail. Hence, the
name. 'Ardha' means 'half' in Sanskrit.
Baddha Konasana
"Baddha" means "locked-up" and "kona" means "angle" in Sanskrit.





Baddha Padmasana - The Locked Lotus Pose
"Baddha"
means "bound' or "locked-up" in Sanskrit. The limbs of the body (both
arms and legs) are firmly 'locked-up' and immobilized in this posture
so as to give it steadiness. In this posture, the big toes are grasped
by the fingers with arms crossed from behind.





Bhadrasana - The Locked Lotus Pose
"Bhadra" means 'beneficial' in Sanskrit.





Bhujangasana - Cobra Pose
"Bhujanga"
means "cobra" in Sanskrit. This asana is called "Bhujangasana" as the
raised trunk, neck and head while practicing it resemble a cobra
rearing its hood and about to strike, while the joined and stretched
legs resemble its tail.
Chakrasana - Wheel Pose (Standing)
"Chakra" means "wheel" in Sanskrit.





Chakrasana - Wheel Pose (Supine)
"Chakra"
means "wheel" in Sanskrit. In the final position of this asana, the
body is arched backward and resembles the rim of a wheel. Hence the
name.




Dandasana - Stick Pose
"Danda" means "stick" in Sanskrit.



Dhanurasana - Bow Pose
"Dhanus"
means "bow" in Sanskrit. In the final position of this asana, the body
takes the shape of a bow, drawn tight to shoot an arrow. The stretched
arms and lower legs resemble the taut bowstring, while the trunk and
thighs resemble the wooden part of the bow.



Gomukhasana - Cow-Face Pose
"Go"
means "cow" and "Mukha" means "face" in Sanskrit. When this asana is
performed, the final position of the legs resembles the face of a cow.



Halasana - Plough Pose
"Hala"
means "Plough" in Sanskrit. This posture is called 'Halasana' because
in the final position the body resembles the Indian plough.



Januhastasana - Hand-to-Knee Pose
"Janu"
means "knee" and "hasta" means "hand" in Sanskrit. The hand is made to
rest near the knee in this posture, hence the name.




Janusirasana - Head-to-Knee Pose
"Janu" means "knee" and "Siras" means "head" in Sanskrit. The head is made to rest on the knee in this posture, hence the name.
Makarasana - Crocodile Pose
"Makar" means "crocodile" in Sanskrit.





Mandukasana - Frog Pose
"Manduk"
means "frog" in Sanskrit. The arrangement of the legs in this posture
resembles the hind legs of a frog. Hence the name.





Matsyasana - Fish Pose
"Matsya"
means "fish" in Sanskrit. If a person lies steadily on water in this
posture, he can keep floating on it easily like a fish without the help
of the hands and legs, as the name of the asana suggests.




Naukasana - Boat Pose
"Nauka" means "boat" in Sanskrit. The final position of this asana resembles a boat. Hence the name.




Oordhwa Pada Hastasana - Hand-to-Raised-Feet Pose
"Oordhwa"
means "raised", "Pada" means "foot" and "Hasta" means "hand" in
Sanskrit. You have to touch your raised feet with your hands in this
posture.



Padahastasana - Hand-to-Feet Pose
"Pada" means "foot" and "Hasta" means "hand" in Sanskrit. You have to catch your big toes with your hands in this posture.





Padmasana - Lotus Pose
"Padma"
means "lotus" in Sanskrit. "Padmasana" means sitting in the "Lotus
Pose". This posture is called Padmasana because the arrangement of the
hands and feet resemble a lotus when seen from a distance. The two feet
placed upon the opposite thigh resemble the leaves while the two hands
placed one over the other resembles the lotus in full bloom.





Parvatasana - Mountain Pose
"Parvata"
means "mountain" in Sanskrit. As the arms are raised high and the
fingers are joined together above the head in this posture, the body
resembles mountain peak and hence the name.







Paschimotanasana - Posterior Stretch
"Paschima"
means 'behind', 'back' or 'posterior' and 'Uttana' means to stretch out
in Sanskrit. "Paschimotana" means stretching the posterior regions of
the body.





Pavanamuktasana - Wind-releasing Pose

means "wind" and "Mukta" means release in Sanskrit. As the name
suggests, this asana massages the digestive organs and gives relief
from excess wind in the stomach and intestines.

of the body are kept in such a way that they stand divided into two,
hence the name Samasana.

relaxation of all parts of his body and remove tensions, both physical
and mental.
