What preferably comes to your mind when you hear the term Yoga? I am certain that it is bending or twisting your body with impossible poses.

Yoga is about tuning your body, mind, and soul. And thoughtfully nurturing your overall health and well-being to lead an eccentric life.

Even though yoga is an ancient wellness practice, it is one of the most trending health and well-being topics today.

Some of the widely practiced Yoga Sadhanas include Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana (Meditation), Samadhi /Samyama, Bandhas & Mudras, Shat-karmas, Mantra Japa, etc.

In today's era, being mindful is crucial. And to become aware is to improve and practice physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual health and wellness activities.

Meditative exercises or relaxation techniques involving physical and mental activity are much needed to overcome today's work-life stress. Yoga works on the different levels of one's body, mind, emotions, and energy. It is not only a workout activity.

Ignoring common health and wellness signs at the workplace can further lead to health issues, like lack of sleep, financial situations, poor nutrition, physical, mental and social imbalance, etc. In fact, practicing yoga at the workplace will help bring consciousness back into life and modify old and unhealthy habits.

Make sure you regularly find some time to exercise, meditate, cook healthy food, read for a walk, indulge in healthy talk, and indulge in yoga.
