Yoga is a journey of the self, through the self, to the self – The Bhagwad Gita Since ages, Yoga has been proven as the rightful convergence of the psychological learning and physical fitness. The idea that one can come in control of one’s self in a 24×68 inch mat is amazing in itself. And although it might feel mystical to a lot of people, the careful indulgence of the physical postures with controlled breath and aligned dedication – one can take control of their self!
Sharmilee Agarwal Kapur, Founder- Director at Atmantan Wellness Centre says, “While Yoga is beneficial for everyone who does it – for women it holds a special significance. Due to physiological changes during the puberty, hormonal imbalances with pregnancy, reproductive health issues and menopause – a woman’s body goes through a lot. Yoga can be the ultimate support to balance the difficulties and make the most of health for women.”
Supports physiological changes
As the girls start hitting the age 14 (sometimes before), they experience bodily changes and development. This happens with a lot of hormonal and emotional developments in the body. It can be depressing for the teenaged women to bear the new physical changes, pain and emotions. Yoga helps balance the hormones, build up strength, agility and flexibility in the body to aid better living. It helps the teenagers learn about their physicality, accept their being and control their emotions well.
