7 poses from yoga to fight insomnia

7 поз из йоги для борьбы с бессонницей

Yoga (Dev.) - a concept in Indian culture, in a broad sense, meaning a combination of different spiritual, mental and physical practices developed in different directions of Hinduism and Buddhism and aimed at managing the mental and physiological functions of the body with the goal of achieving an individual spiritual and mental state. In a narrower sense, yoga is one of the six Orthodox schools (darshan) of Hindu philosophy. The main directions of yoga are raja yoga, karma yoga, jnana yoga, bhakti yoga and hatha yoga. In the context of Hindu philosophy, yoga is understood as a system of raja yoga, set forth in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and closely related to the fundamental principles of Sankhya. Yoga is discussed in various Hindu scriptures such as the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Siva Samhita, and Tantra. The ultimate goal of yoga can be completely different: from the improvement of physical health and to achieve moksha. Outside India, the term “yoga” is often associated only with hatha yoga and its asanas - physical exercise, which does not reflect the spiritual and spiritual aspects of yoga. The one who studies and practices yoga is called a yogi or yogi.
