Letting Powerful Yoga Principles into your Life

Yoga Principles

I am so happy that thanks to my workplace I was able to meet the real YOGA instructor in my life – Aman Banwait from Innergy Corporate Yoga Inc. I tried yoga before, but it never touched me so much, never brought that much peace and relaxation inside of me and, I honestly think, I’ve never did any of the poses correctly, before starting classes with Aman. Together with Yoga Principles they have a powerful positive influence towards me. 

When every pose is disassembled into molecules and you came into it through the correct transitioning points the outputs are magical. All that brought more interest towards Yoga into my life and I found an amazing book in Kobo store named Yoga Basic Knowledge” by Nils Horn

If you are a beginner trying to figure to the purpose of Yoga and main poses, believe me, that’s the book you may wish to start with. 

I’d like to share 10 Yoga Principles with you today. Found in this book and re-read by me weekly:

  1. No violence = Be meek. Be peaceful. 
  2. Truthfulness = Live in truth. Be honest with yourself and others.
  3. Righteousness = No stealing, No cheating. Seek for fair trade instead of unwarranted advantage.
  4. Wisdom = Live in spiritual focus (in the light). Do not serve the money but the inner happiness. Be centered in your inner happiness and peace.
  5. Simplicity = Be moderate in external enjoyment and consumption.
  6. Worship of spiritual goal
  7. Sacrifice the ego = Purification/Cleaning. 
  8. Self-discipline = A clear goal, a clear life plan and clear way of practicing. 
  9. Reading = The daily reading clears the spirit, enlightens the path.
  10. Contentment = Satisfaction with what one has

I try to follow 5 Yoga Principles of Health presented in this book as well:

  1. EAT HEALTHY. Healthy eating consists of vegetables, fruits, cereals etc. It is advised to eat little or no meat and much raw food (fruits and vegetables)
  2. AVOID DRUGS, SMOKING AND ALCOHOL. That causes many diseases and usually shorten your life significantly. Too many sweets, lots of salt and lots of meat are also unfavorable. You live longer if you eat less (but not too less). Hear your Body.
  3. DO SPORTS. Go walking, jogging, cycling, swimming once or twice a day (one half to an hour), to keep your body strong and healthy. 
  4. RELAX SUFFICIENTLY. Stress should always be put away by adequate recovery periods, yoga or meditation. For the inner happiness it is important to live in the right proportion of personal activity (work) and rest (relaxation).
  5. THINK POSITIVE. Avoid negative thoughts. Positive thoughts lead to positive feelings and positive emotions have a positive effect on your body. Motivate yourself with positive phrases and ideas. 

It is important to re-read often these Yoga principles, I sourced from Yoga Basic Knowledge by Nils Horn. There are tons of other valuable information I found in this precious book.

Have and amazing day, evening, week, month, year, life of yours!

Namaste,

Nina

    The only area where I need to work is # 4- Relax sufficiently. In today’s fast paced world, it seems impossible to do that.

    I have tried yoga several times and fail every time. I really want it to work for me but I struggle with the balance. Thanks for the share. I may give it another try.

    The 10 principles of yoga is awesome and I hope to re-read to me daily too. I alway put no 10 on my heart. Contentment – be happy with what we already have and stop comparing what we dont.

    I love doing yoga. Although I don’t get to practice regularly anymore because I moved to another place. As for the yoga principle, I’m still working on contentment and thinking positive. 🙂

    You’re right…I also agree that we should re-read such powerful principles to always remind us of staying put. I haven’t tried yoga at all but you can be sure that I’d gladly keep the principles.

    It’s actually so simple isn’t it? It’s just reminding ourselves to actually do it! I’m trying to be a lot more mindful about even the more mundane things I do, to slow down and enjoy the processes.

    When I was climbing Kilimanjaro last summer, #7 and #8 were my life, especially on the incredible difficult Summit Night. I left my ego on the mountain, because the mountain always wins and without the discipline of training for an entire year to climb Kili, I never would have made it.

    I tried yoga twice and on different locations. I wish I stayed doing yoga, I did enjoy it. Also having an instructor that can help you with your poses is key. You share great points. They make a huge difference in our daily lifestyle.
