Today Yoga is performed all over the world by people as a part of the daily routine.
People follow various different styles, forms & types of yoga like VinyasaKundalini, Hatha,Bikram, Acro, Ashtanga. Similarly, everyone has different goal or motives behind the regular practice of Yoga. Some do it for work, some for flexibility, weight management, stay fit, look young, and feel strong & energetic. Sometimes just to buy time from busy life and go for yoga retreat and yoga holidays But did we ever think, what is the best way to end our daily yoga class or session? How will that
impact the rest of our day? Example my motive behind the regular practice of Yoga during the early morning session is mental peace, to feel relaxed from busy life, noise, traffic, work pressure and to improve my focus. I end my daily Yoga class by repeating Shanti/Peace Mantra, this gives a peace message to my subconscious mind and doesn’t matter how difficult my day is, I feel mental calmness.
Here are top 11 ways to end your yoga sessions with their impacts on our daily life:

yoga
1. Shanti/Peace Mantra– this one is for those crave for mental calmness and peace in daily
life. Simply close your eyes after your session, sit is Sukh- asana(basic sitting posture, with
palms of your hands, facing towards ceiling ) and repeat this mantra at least twice:
Om Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah(Om, may all be happy)
Sarv santu Nir-Aamayaah(may all be healthy, free from illness)
Sarve Bhadraanni Pashyantu (may all see Auspiciousness)
Maa Kashcid-dukhna-bhaag-bhaveta (may no one suffer)
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Shanti(Om, peace peace peace peace)
2. Hug – simply hug your yoga teacher and all your yoga mates after the calls. Sounds crazy ?
but this one is to spread the clear message, to love humans, to love everyone. Love everyone
unconditionally, do not judge anyone for what & how they are? Unconditional love is an
antidote to stress and depression. Results will be you will be loved by everyone!
3. Clap your hands – at the end of your class, clap for 100-200 times with a gentle smile on
your face, sitting in such asana (basic sitting posture). This one is best for senior citizens. This
method of ending your yoga session has great benefits like enhanced blood circulation,
cleansing body, improves digestive disorders, relief from back & joint pains, prevention from
diseases like eye problems, hypertension, chronic headaches, cold, insomnia, and depression.
4. Sit down and stand by method – this method is the simplest of all and helps you to slow
down and feel connected to yourself. Simply close your eyes after the session, sit down in sukh
asana, open your hands towards the ceiling and place on your knees. Just relax and observe,
observe your whole body, the stretch you feel anywhere in your body, the relaxation or
whatever you feel? Observe your body and disconnect from the outside world. This is not
meditation, though it is the short technique of observation towards your body post-yoga class.
You should do it for at least 5-10 minute.

5. Shav Asana – this one is similar to point 4, close your eyes, and lie down on your mat facing
towards ceilings. Observe your body and breathe normally, do it for at least 10 minutes. Turn
towards right hand side, while lying down- take 3 deep breaths and now you come back to
sitting position. The Corpse pose or Shav asana has various benefits and help us to rejuvenate &
feel relaxed.
6. Ayurvedic Massage – this one is not possible for all but those who have Ayurvedic massage
facilities available should do it daily post-yoga class. Yoga-Ayurveda has a deep connection from
history and should be part of Dinchariya(daily schedule). Ayurvedic Massage type could vary as
per your Dosha.
7. Walking – this one is the simplest form of workout. It is preferred to do cardio workouts
before a yoga session. Though short walks post your yoga enhance blood circulation and
balance all energy in the body.
8. Meditation – Best way of ending your yoga session is to connect to yourself and do 15-20
minutes of meditation is sukh asana. The way you do meditation may vary & I do not want to
comment on this, rather I recommend this to be learned from your GURU. For me, meditation
is important than any other activity & it is my way of surrender to myself and connection to the
world inside me. If you are quiet enough, you will hear the flow of the universe. You will feel it’s
rhythm. Go with this flow. Happiness lies ahead. Meditation is the key- Buddha Quote
9. Pranayama(vital life force) – these are breathing techniques, which can also be done
before yoga class. Doing Pranayama of various forms post-yoga class helps to control and
practice your breathing patterns. Pranayama has various benefits and is the foundation of Yoga.

10. Bhagwat Gita Saar – The Spiritual way is the best way to end the yoga session for those
who understand and respect spiritual values of life. This method is used in various Yoga
Ashrams in India. Bhagwat Gita or simply Gita is a part of Hindu epic Mahabharata written in
Sanskrit. It teaches various aspects & lessons of life which we should follow in our daily life.
Some parts of these lessons are narrated and explained for 10-15minutes post-yoga class to
become a better human being.

Geeta

11. Hasyayoga(Laughter Yoga) – invented in 1995 by Madan Kataria, a doctor in India. End
your Yoga sessions/class by Laughing aloud in a group or alone. Laughing has various health
benefits and has logic backed by science if you do laughter yoga daily.
Key benefits include: stress relief, regularize blood circulation, better cardiac health and lot
more

Yoga of faith– Union with Self

Shraddha/Faith – the antidote for failure

The human connection with faith is Yoga with Faith!

Power of faith:

Today everything in this world is based on faith and belief. Every one of us might have different theories for all aspects of life, including religion. These theories again are based on faith.

Our ancient Yogi gurus say religion is not only based on experience from past, as no man can be religious until he has some perception himself.

As per Raj Yoga, the aim of all sciences is to find a unit out of which all this manifold is being manufactured. Yoga proposes to start from the internal world, to study the internal nature of human, and, through that, control both the internal and external world. It is a very old attempt. India has had its special stronghold, but it was also attempted by other nations. In India for various reasons, it fell into the hands of persons who destroyed 90 percent of the knowledge and of that portion which remained tried to make a great secret.

It is true India is still considered the best place to learn & practice yoga and meditation due to India’s rich spiritual, cultural yoga values, flora & fauna which is best suited for Yoga. Every year millions of yoga enthusiast, beginners, yogis, experts, trainers and people who want to practice or learn yoga from scratch travel to India from all parts of the earth. India has thousands of teacher training schools, academy, ashrams, ayurvedic study colleges & is world’s best destination for an affordable yoga retreat.

Yoga is still known as the practice of good for 5000 years, it helps to calm your mind, rejuvenate, detox, feel fit & young, healthy and stronger. Whether it is traffic, noise, busy life, work pressure, failure in relationship, worries of future, the stress of past, irresolvable issues, lack of focus, lack of flexibility in body, over/underweight, medical problems, depression, lack of confidence or faith there is just one solution YOGA

 

Practice yoga and meditation with faith –

Patanjali yoga sutra talks about doubt, doubt which arises in a yogi about the practice

An unshakeable faith in the result of Yoga and its methods for its successful practice. Such faith is needed in achieving success in any line of endeavor. In the divine adventure which we have undertaken the objective is unknown and there are no clearly defined standards by which we can judge and measure our progress.

Doubts of various kinds are therefore liable to arise in our mind.

  •    Is there really any reality to be realized or we are merely pursuing a mirage?
  •    Are the methods we are using really effective?
  •    Are those methods the right methods for us?
  •    Do we have the capacity to go through all the obstacles and reach the goal?

It is at these times that we need Sraddha(faith)— unshakeable faith in our objective, in our self and in the methods which we have adopted. It may not be possible to avoid these periods of depression and doubt especially in the early stages but it is our behavior and reaction to them which show whether we have true faith or not. If we can ignore them even though what we feel about them, we come out of the shade into the sunshine again and resume our journey with renewed enthusiasm. If we allow these doubts and moods to interfere with our Sadhana(practice) and relaxes our efforts, they acquire an increasing hold on our mind until we are completely side-tracked and abandon the path altogether. Hence faith is the base for practicing yoga or simply to connect to yourself.

Faith with meditation –

The power of attention of our mind, when properly guided, and directed towards the internal world, will analyze the mind, and illumine facts for us. The powers of the mind are like rays of light being dissipated; when they are concentrated they illumine everything.

Bringing of mind into a higher state of vibration starts with Samadhi, the super consciousness.

The state of Samadhi is achieved by regular practice of meditation, there is no rule or guidance or steps which we can follow to reach Samadhi while meditation, in fact, it is the faith, faith to our inner world, faith to our belief system, faith to lord we worship. It is a complete surrender to our self, to the God in us

The state of Samadhi comes through faith, energy, memory, concentration, and discrimination of the real.

To start practicing is to find a quiet place in our home or anywhere in our world.

One of the best ways is taught by Swami Vivekananda

Sit in a straight posture, and the first thing to do is start with a powerful mantra; mentally repeat:

“Let all beings be happy;         Let all beings be peaceful;  Let all beings be blissful. So do to the east, south, north, and west.

The more we do that the better we will feel our self. We will find at last that the easiest way to make ourselves healthy is to see that others are healthy, and the easiest way to make ourselves happy is to see that others are happy. After doing that, those who believe in God should pray — not for money, not for health, nor for heaven; pray for knowledge and light; every other prayer is selfish.

Then the next thing to do is to think of our own body, and see that it is strong and healthy; it is the best instrument you have. Freedom is never to be reached by the weak; throw away all weakness; tell our body that it is strong; tell our mind that it is strong, and have unbounded faith and hope in our self.

Yoga is faith in our self and our faith is yoga!
