33 per cent of the Indian population is suffering from hypertension. But more than two-third of them are not even aware of the disorder, says The Great Indian BP (blood pressure) Survey conducted by Cardiological Society of India.

It was a chance visit to the doctor, which revealed everything was not right with his health. “Your blood pressure is little raised,” the doctor told 26-year-old Manav Mitra, who had accompanied his younger brother for a routine checkup at his GP’s clinic. Little did he know that this casual visit was soon going to have a huge impact on his lifestyle.

“My elevated reading came as a shock. I do not smoke. I do not have a family history. So, I was least expecting the 150/95mm Hg blood pressure reading,” shares the IT professional. When he tried to look for the possible reasons, he realised where he went wrong. Young and ambitious, Mitra heavily depended on takeaways (fast food) due to his hectic work schedule and late nights. Ordering food was quick and convenient – speed dial, place the order, eat and keep working – hassle free and taste buds flattering.Continue Reading..

Are you a yomad?

It could be in the midst of a bustling piazza or against a gigantic mountain… home is where yoga nomads can roll out their mats.You know you have company on a vacation when you spot someone with their mat slung over the shoulder, sipping on kombucha and talking about the cosmos,” says blogger Anne in her post ‘Finding Yoga on the Road’. Anne belongs to the burgeoning tribe of yoga tourists, who travel for the love of yoga. When in a new terrain, they will immediately look up the best yoga classes, try out some new-age yoga workshops and only then think about other touristy things to do. “When I visit a new city, the first thing I do is find a yoga studio because I know that no matter where I am in the entire world, I can feel at home the minute I step onto my yoga mat,” says Meredith Meyer, an advertising professional who runs a yoga studio in Chicago.Continue Reading..

Ten Things You Should Know About Yoga

Zubin Profile image

1.Yoga is not a religion. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit root “yuj”, which mean “to yoke, to unite”. As such, Yoga is the union of body, mind and spirit: it can be practiced at a physical, mental and/or spiritual level, independently from one’s religious beliefs.

2. You don’t need to be flexible to do Yoga. You gain flexibility by doing it.

3. An adult breathes 16 – 20 times in a minute; by practicing Yoga asanas (postures) and pranayam (yogic breathing techniques) your breath rate can be slowed down – which helps slow down the ageing process, as slower breathes mean less free radicals from the oxygens.

4. If you are a serious sports person, Yoga can help you improve the quality of your performance in the sport you practice, being it an effortless swing of the golf club, or the underwater breath for a scuba diver, or the energy management for a rock climber.

5. If you are a “gym guy” your body will particularly thank you for doing Yoga along with your gym routine. Yoga improves muscle coordination. Moreover the conscious use of the breath used in Yoga prevents the creation of lactic acid and increases the overall muscle quality.

6. Yoga has therapeutic values and can integrate medical treatments; however, it suits as well people in good health who want to keep fit, decrease the level of stress and live a more balanced and healthy lifestyle.

7.Yoga can help you lose weight as it works on your endocrine system by balancing your hormones and improving the quality of your digestion. Focusing on awareness, Yoga will also introduce you to mindful eating and therefore help improve your eating habits.

8. A good Yoga Teacher is a must, especially as you approach Yoga for the first time. At the same time, encourage your own self to practice at home, making Yoga a part of your daily routine.

9. Yoga is not about competition, neither with others nor with yourself. Do what you easily can, listen to your body and understand your current limits as well as your potential to progress in the practice safely and steadily.

10. And by the way, since I have been asked this a few times: homosexuality is not a disease; it does not need to be cured, so Yoga can’t “cure” it.
