The Effect of Yoga Exercises a Sports Injuries and Performance

Manjanna B. P. | Dr. Harish P. M.

Abstract: Yoga is the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India with a view to attain a state of permanent peace. The term yoga can be derived from either of two roots, yujir yoga (to yoke) or yujsamadhau (to concentrate). TheYoga Sutras of Patanjali defines yoga as "the stilling of the changing states of the mind". Yoga has also been popularly defined as "union with the divine" in other contexts and traditions. The word yoga means to unite meaning the whole body is working as one. The body (physical workout), the mind (visualisations and belief in your goals) and the spirit (the energy surrounding us) are connected by the breath. Yoga creates energy, vitality, strength, flexibility and focus the life. Yoga disciples use poses, or asanas, to prepare their bodies for meditation practicemuch as an athlete would prepare for a sports competition. The poses also serve to alter one's consciousness and mental focus in the spiritual quest for "enlightenment. " This spiritually transformative process is, in fact, the overriding purpose of the practice of hatha yoga. In essence, yoga is designed to bring body, mind, and spirit into balance.
