Yoga is originated in ancient India. It consists of postures, breathing exercises, and meditations. It is the best practice for physical, mental and spiritual healing.
As Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, “Yoga is not just exercise and asanas. It is the emotional integration and spiritual elevation with a touch of a mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something beyond all imagination.”
I love yoga exercises. It helps me to control body and mind. I have my full body yoga workout which includes yoga practices for head to toe and from mind to soul. Today, I have decided to list down some of them and share with you all.

This pose is usually performed at the end of the yoga practice but I perform it in the beginning as well. This pose is achieved by lying on the back with the legs spread as wide as the yoga mat and arms relaxed to the side. The eyes are closed and the breath is deep. The whole body is relaxed and feels each breath.
It rejuvenates the body, mind, and spirit.
