What is Yoga?


Yoga is a discipline in which one can balance and harmonize the body, mind and emotions. It is an ancient Indian philosophy that enhances the personal growth and well being. Yoga involves many different processes that require training from experienced teacher.

The nature of yogic practices can affect both psycho-physiological improvements in us. Those practices that stress on mental control are more psychological and those that stress on particular exercises (Hatha Yoga) are more physiological.


What are the benefits of Yoga?


Yoga is an excellent remedy to counter various problems that man is facing in his day to day life. As you know the number of circulating stem cells in the blood stream reduces due to age, acute disease, heavy dosage of antibiotics, pollution, injury, stress, lack of sleep etc.

Here is a list of some excellent yoga benefits! It is proved by studies that performing yoga and pranayama minimum 3 times a week provides glorious health benefits. The site Mitrapura gives very clear yoga benefits and also the connection between yoga and stem cell nutrition.

So …

How to start yoga practice at home


We often tend to browse through internet especially in you tube videos to get to know about yoga and finally end up thinking that they are very tough limb twisting poses, touching ones toes etc. Obviously, for a person who has no physical exercise regime in his daily activities would just run away thinking that yoga is not meant for him.

It is very wrong to think this way. Yoga is a very simple process of uniting your mind and body through simple poses first. Yoga can be practiced by any one irrespective of age, sex who is sound in health conditions.

Note: One should consult his physician in case of any injury, medical issues before start of yoga process.

So never mind if you are less flexible or less stretchable or you are starting late in your 40’s. Just forget all the myths when you are beginning to start yoga.

Find a local studio to learn yoga


For beginners the best way to start yoga would be getting the required practical guidance from a trained yoga teacher. Trained teachers can help you to perform yoga poses in the right manner with ease and preventing you from any injuries.

Never ever, make an attempt to practice yoga from books like ‘how to start yoga by yourself’, ‘how to start yoga at home for beginners’ etc.

Remember in the beginning you need to be closely assisted by someone who is qualified to train others.

There are many online courses, videos in the internet, but my recommendations are to opt for the beginner’s course in any well-organized yoga ashram that is situated away from the city. The objective behind this is that ashram environment will give you that energy and vibration more congenial for yoga practice.

Normally, any beginner’s course encompasses the attitude training practices (Yama and Niyama), steady poses (Asana), breathing control (Pranayama), seal and lock for energy (Mudras and Bandhas), internal purification techniques (Shat Kriyas), and meditation (Dhyana).

Attending a beginner’s course in a well-organized yoga center will support you even after the completion of the course duration, like organizing weekly follow-up classes to clear all the doubts you have had during home practice.

Secondly, this will also help you stay connected with the community to share your experiences as a beginner.


Practicing yoga learnt in studio in home.


Once you had learnt yoga in a studio, you can continue the same in your home. But there is a lot of difference between practicing in the studio and home. A studio helps you practice yoga in the correct manner without mistakes and injury under an expert guide, whereas in home you are your own guide and must create an atmosphere to enhance the efficacy of yoga.

Schedule your time

You are now on your own. So, allocate the best time in a day to perform yoga. Generally, morning times are ideal. You have had a full night’s rest and woke up fresh for the day, therefore your mind and body are also fresh so make use of this opportunity to do yoga. In case, mornings are not suitable find out alternative schedule.

Select a proper place to do yoga in home

Your yoga place should be so located that it is free from all disturbances. Ensure to keep this room clean, adequately ventilated, enough room to spread yourself in any yoga pose without hitting any sharp furniture ends. Switch off ceiling or table fans while doing yoga. Keep practicing seriously in this room and you will experience the positive vibrations when entering this room.

Select loose fit dress

Loose clothes are easy during wide stretches like in case of Sun salutation pose. Ensure that your undergarments are snug fit.

Practice yoga in empty stomach after clearing your bowls

Food and not cleared bowls pose obstruction while performing yoga. Accumulations of gases in the gut, stomach pain are the common result of ignoring this.

Introduce yoga to your family members and friends in home

Purpose of staying away from your family members during your yoga sessions in the private place should explained, so that you can get their encouragement and support.

Consume sattvic foods

Sattvic foods like fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, seeds and nuts provide two goals: quieting of the mind and governing of a person’s subtle nature of your own selves.

Get the right yoga accessories

A yoga mat is the first most essential accessory you will have to invest in. There are plenty of yoga mats in the market, but the most suitable for a beginner and professional yogi is a rubber mat which is natural. A rubber yoga mat helps you protect your pointy joints, grip between your hands and the mat and also firm grip between the mat and the floor.

Rubber mats also work well during hot yoga as it instantly absorbs the sweat. Take a look at this yoga mat review which can help you decide the right one to buy.

There is no need for any other accessories for beginners.

Remove all metal ornaments from your body before starting yoga

Wearing of any metal objects like ring, bracelets, necklace, anklets, hairpins, slides, chains, spectacles etc. may cause disturbance of the energy flow in your body. People should also remove wearing spectacles during asana. Accidental hitting of the glass, frames are the normal dangers while performing yoga. Moreover, you also tend to shift your concentration to your glasses during performing asana.

Start your yoga practices doing warm up exercises

Doing warm up exercises gives you sufficient energy to shift from the state of rest to movements. You might have heard of ‘inertia’ in physics. It is the tendency to do nothing or lethargy. You need to break this tendency and move briskly to start your asana. This is what warm up does. Rotating your shoulders individually clockwise and anticlockwise, similarly rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise to remove stiffness if any.

During asana stretch your limits gradually

If you are doing 5 sets of Sun Salutation every day make it a point to increase one more set and then stabilize on it for a week or so. Then increase one more set till you are comfortable. Doing asana this way will generate an enthusiasm to perform even better the next time.

Be a regular yoga practitioner

In order to get the full benefits of yoga mentally and physically you need to do yoga for at least 4 – 5 times in a week. The objective is to set a rhythm in your body and mind. Once this is done then every work that you perform will be a quality work.

You can improve muscle strength, good posture, balance, and help flexibility. Yoga can also strengthen your immune system due to release of more stem cells in your blood stream to repair, renew and rejuvenate damaged stem cells thereby reducing your risk of symptoms related to chronic health conditions.

Keep a track of the days you perform the asana. This will help you to know how many times in a week are you doing yoga. Maintaining consistency is one of the key aspects of asana to derive the full benefits. I keep a note in my calendar and then review every month.

Relax at the end of yoga session

After one complete session of yoga poses lie down in Shavasana (Corpse Pose). It is a deep relaxation process consciously of the body and mind. This process helps you to consolidate and conserve the energy acquired during the yoga poses. You are fresh mentally and physically to prepare yourself for the following Pranayama and Meditation.

As far as possible do yoga in an natural atmospheric condition

Never switch on the ceiling fan or any other air blowing equipment while performing yoga. This will stiffen your joints and you will not enjoy doing yoga. Ensure that you sit in a well-ventilated room free from any odor.

Avoid consuming cold water during and after yoga asana

Yogis practicing Hatha yoga, meditation, pranayama or Kriya should avoid drinking cold water during or after asana. Because, the practice of yoga asana adds heat to fire centers that help the smooth functioning of mind, organs, tissues and especially the whole process of digestion.

By drinking cold water after yoga asana can smother the Agni (fire) inside you, thereby diminishing the digestion process of breaking down the sugars, fats, proteins and the whole metabolism of the body.

There is no specific water temperature or timings to consume water after yoga asana, however individuals having kapha dosha, should drink warm water 20−40 minutes after asana; individuals with vata dosha should drink lukewarm water 15−30 minutes after asana; and for pitta dosha consume water at room-temperature 15−30 minutes post-asana. This is broad recommendation for all yogis.

Pause after every asana

The objective of pausing during transition from one pose to another is to allow your mind and body to be aware of the effects of the previous pose. Enjoy the moments and the quality of your practice. You can then focus on the next pose and prepare mentally and physically before you start the next pose.


Practicing Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation)

Beginners must necessarily practice Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) and master this pose. This is the most powerful asana and one can derive various health benefits mainly because this asana is a combination of 12 different poses.

This pose was practiced by ancient yogis and sages to pay special respect to the Sun around which all the planets revolve around. Sun was considered as an object having the highest energy in the universe, which is useful to all the living creatures in the earth.

By regularly practicing Surya Namaskar one can enhance the solar plexus situated behind your navel. This is the internal sun and is the third chakra responsible for crystal clear decision making, confidence, creativity, and leadership skills. This is why yoga guru’s recommend you should practice Surya Namaskar right from the first class.

The various stages of Surya Namaskar are as under.

1. Pranamasana

This is the pose we normally do during offering prayers to our almighty. Position yourself correctly in the top edge of the yoga mat with both your feet closed to each other and hands in the sides. Stand upright on your mat with your both feet closely aligned. Inhale deeply, expanding your chest and relaxing your shoulders.

While you inhaling, raise your arms from the sides. And during exhaling, join your palms together like greeting someone (Namaste). This is the first salutation towards the sun.

2. Hastauttanasana

Here you should breathe in and lift your arms from the previous pose up and bend backwards slightly. Ensure to keep your biceps close to your ears during this time. No change in the position of the feet in this position.

3. Hasta Padasana

Exhale, and bend forward from the waist. Keep your knees straight bend down and touch the ground. Your palms should be straight touching the ground.

4. Ashwa Sanchalanasana

Next breathe in, and stretch your body parallel to the ground. Keep your hands to the side, and bring your right knee towards the right part of the chest and let your left leg stretch behind. Look up.

5. Dandasana

Next as you inhale, position your right leg also backwards aligning your entire body parallel to the ground. This is the stick pose.

6. Ashtanga Namaskara

This is important pose and it represents the salutation pose using eight parts of the body touching the floor (two hands, two feet, two knees, chest and, chin are the eight parts of the body). From the Dandasana pose, gently bring down your knees towards the floor and exhale. Slowly rest your chin on the floor, keep your hips elevated in the air.

7. Bhujangasana

This is called the Cobra pose. Slide forward and raise your chest, support with your hands on the floor. Raise your chest as much as possible and look upwards. Keep your legs and mid-section flat on the ground. Make sure you use your hands to support your body and do not transfer your entire weight onto them.

8. Adho Mukha Swanasana

Raise your hips as you exhale and your head down so as to rest in an inverted ‘V’ position.

9. Ashwa Sanchalanasana

Next breathe in, and stretch your body parallel to the ground. Keep your hands to the side, and bring your left knee towards the left part of the chest and let your right leg stretch behind and look up. Note: This time, we do the opposite of what we did in the 4th step. Procedure- Bring your right foot forward, while resting the left foot behind, at its original position.

10. Hasta Padasana

Next slowly bring your right foot forward, next to the left foot as you exhale. Rest your palms on the floor, your nose touching the knees.

11. Hastauttanasana

Next inhale, raise your hands upward, and bends backward with hips pushing forward.

12. Pranamasana

This is the last pose, exhale and stand in a relaxed manner in the Namaskara mudra. Feel the positive vibrations in your body. This is how you complete one repetition of Surya Namaskar. Twelve repetitions of this holistic exercise are said to yield maximum benefit.

Above sequence is shown in diagram below 
Surya Namaskar sequence

Practicing self-massage after yoga asana



Muscle soreness after yoga asana occurs when you have over stressed yourself too much the day before. The remedy for this problem is self-massage. Self-massage after asana helps both minimize muscle soreness and also improves the positive impact asana in your body.

Self-massage and yoga is the perfect health practice to be followed by yogis. Not only will self-massage help good blood flow and prevent muscle soreness, but self-massage also improves the lymphatic flow, that is beneficial for deeper meditation practices.

As per the ancient scripts of Hatha yoga, every yogi sweats after the strenuous yoga asana. The sweat consist essential elements/oils of the body which should be rubbed by the yogi himself in order to absorb them through the pores of the skin. Otherwise, these essential elements will get destroyed if it is allowed to dry in the air or by towel.

The process of self-massage is clearly explained in the following video.


Final words about yoga



Just keep practicing!

Concentrate in your practice with an open mind and heart. Everything else will fall in place gradually. Check out Yoga Journal to get any clarification on yoga poses. Be very regular and start tasting the benefits of starting yoga in life.

Point 1: introduction


Matcha Green Tea Powder
Image credit: koumei-matcha.de
Matcha is a superior quality special type of powdered green tea that is grown and produced in Japan (in most cases). It is considered superior due to its cultivation and production processes. Most of the matcha cultivators employ manual expert hands t to pluck the youngest, greenest two leaves at the tip of each new shoots. Nothing beats the trained eyes and soft touch of this centuries old tradition. It is, in fact, the only way to ensure the highest quality matcha tea. Obviously, not sacrificing the quality the cost of production is higher. Tender leaves plucked are once again screened to absolutely ascertain the quality which makes ceremonial grade matcha green tea powder so special. Subsequent to leaves plucking a series of operations are carried out till it is finally packed and shipped.

  Truly, the superior matcha quality must possess the following characteristics:-

• Color – brilliant spring green
• Taste – pleasant savory taste
• Froth ability – light green velvety texture froth

Unlike other types of teas, the matcha green tea powder is not steeped before consuming, so you are consuming the entire leaf, making Matcha more potent than other tea varieties. Matcha tea is brimming with powerful nutrients that help natural calmness and helps you feel more relaxed while actually promoting a keener mental focus and cognitive ability. In fact, only 1/2 tsp is needed to brew a traditional cup of Matcha.

Point 2:Why should you take organic ceremonial grade matcha green tea?


Ceremonial grade matcha green tea has innumerable health benefits. The nutritional value of this tea is such that, one cup of matcha tea is equivalent to consuming of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea. This is because when you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf. Matcha tea contains antioxidants 137 times more than regular brewed green tea.

There are many grades of matcha in the market, but this grade of matcha is different from other grade green teas.


The following parameters determines the grade of matcha:-

• The color of the tea
• The texture, quality, and density
• The quality of the product – is it stem or is it leaves?
• The fineness of the powder
• Whether there has been any prolonged exposure to oxygen
• How it was ground up
• Treatment prior to processing

Therefore, it is the purest and concentrated green tea powder prepared carefully under the strictest quality assurance standards only in Japan. While matcha is produced in many parts of the world, the matcha from Nishio city in Aichi and Uji city in Kyoto are both generally considered the top producing areas, accounting for 80% of all the matcha produced in Japan today. Japanese Agricultural Standard for that matter is very strict in ensuring that tea cultivation in Japan without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or manufactured fertilizer. JAS will certify any agriculture product if it is produced using organic methods. This finally adds to the potency of ceremonial grade matcha green tea.
Obviously, maximum health benefits one can derive from this grade. The main health benefits are as follows:-

• This grade is abundant with antioxidants called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG)
• Burns calories and increases the metabolic rate
• A effective natural detoxifier
• Improves brain functions by maintaining calmness and relaxes the body
• Rich in fiber, chlorophyll, and vitamins
• Prevents tooth decay and bad breath
• Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

One of the important points to be noted is that matcha has a relatively high caffeine content, however, the impact of caffeine found in matcha is quite different from that found in coffee. Caffeine in coffee absorbs very quickly into the body hence, coffee caffeine is well known for its quick energy spikes. On the other hand, matcha caffeine is absorbed much gradually into the body (6-8 hours) and gives a slower release of energy. Therefore, matcha caffeine is not associated with the well-known negative side effects that coffee caffeine is associated with.

Point 3:How Much Does the Best Matcha Green Tea Powder Cost?


A good quality matcha will cost you anywhere in the range of $25 - $50. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Especially, Considering the health benefits, that one can derive from it consuming just ½ spoons per day. Please note that matcha ranks in the top as far as the ORAC values are concerned. This means that matcha is truly the powerhouse of antioxidants.

Point 4:What is a good matcha?


Taste and color are the two main characteristics that can tell us whether the matcha is of good quality. Matcha reviewing is, like most food-type reviewing, quite subjective. One type of matcha may taste good to an individual but may not be as good to another individual mainly due to the different taste sensing power of both individuals, however, the physical appearance like color may not differ from individual to individual. For the same variety of matcha, taste variations can also occur in the method of preparation of the matcha drink.

Common preparation problems that can cause variations in the taste are as follows:-

The matcha is very bitter ...

This could happen if the water was too hot (> 75 degrees) or too much matcha, or the matcha not whisked efficiently. Matcha needs to be whisked until a thick froth with many tiny bubbles floating on the surface. If the froth is discontinuous, that reveals the liquid underneath, or big bubbles visible on the surface, the flavor profile of the matcha will be poor compared with one that has been whisked correctly.

The matcha does not froth very well

This is due to insufficient whisking the matcha thoroughly, but mostly due to not using enough powder and/or using too much water. If that is the case, you will need to either increase the powder amount or decrease the water amount.

There are clumps of powder in the prepared matcha when drinking

This occurs simply because the matcha not sifted.

Color - Generally, while selecting the best matcha green tea powder, the color should be bright, vibrant spring green. This indicates that the matcha was made from the top tender leaves on the tea plant. Taste - The best matcha green tea has a very pleasant, slightly grassy, green tea flavor. It is not bitter or offensive in any way.

Point 5:How to store matcha?


Matcha should be stored in a cool, dark place. The important thing to remember is to keep your matcha away from light, heat and especially moisture. No refrigeration is required to store matcha. By storing matcha in a cold refrigerator can cause condensation and that is the last thing you want is in your matcha. Preferably, consume matcha green tea powder within one month of opening. This is the main reason matcha comes in small tea metal containers often of 30 grams weight. Manufacturers want to ensure that the tea consumed fast once the container is opened.

Point 6:How to prepare matcha drink?


The process of matcha drink preparation is different from the usual green tea preparation. This is what makes matcha a special drink.

What you require to prepare good matcha...

• Organic Matcha
• Matcha Bowl
• Bamboo Matcha Whisk
• Bamboo Matcha Scoop
• Linen cloth
• Matcha sieve
• Measuring Cup.

Step 1

Preheat the matcha bowl by filling it to 1/3 full with boiling water. Then place the whisk facing down into the water to wet the edges of the prongs (not the entire whisk). Once the bowl has completely preheated, empty out the water and dry the bowl out ideally with a linen material. Set the whisk aside then measure 70ml of boiling water into a cup and allow the temperature to reduce.

Step 2

Use the bamboo scoop to take the matcha powder, correctly two scoops and place it into the bowl. (Note, sieving the matcha before adding water is better to get rid of any clumps of powder.)

Step 3

Once the water that was measured in STEP 1 drops to 70°C -80°C pour it into the matcha bowl.

Step 4

Take the whisk in one hand and hold the rim of the matcha bowl along with your different hand. Whisk the matcha briskly in a ‘W’ motion with your wrist till the matcha develops thick froth with many little bubbles on the surface.

Point 7:What is the recommended amount of matcha per day?


Generally, people consume matcha on a drink 1-2 servings daily. If anyone consuming for the first time, it is best to begin Consuming one serving daily.

Point 8:Chemical Composition of Matcha


Organic matcha has many vitamins, minerals and trace elements useful to our body. The main ingredient in matcha tea is Epigallocatechin (EGCG), L-Theanine and flavonoids. While EGCG and flavonoids work in our body to neutralize the effects of free radicals, L-Theanine a very vital amino acid that helps improve brain functions in our body. The benefits derived from these antioxidants found in matcha in its natural state without any side effects enhances the need to include this magic potion in our regular food intake program in order to maintain a healthy body and mind. Here is a list of the chemical composition of this unique natural food called matcha.

Point 9:Where to Buy Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder?


Genuine Ceremonial grade matcha green tea is available in plenty in the market, but you need to select the best in quality and pricing that suits your pocket as well. The best place to buy ceremonial grade matcha green tea powder is Amazon.in. You can get matcha at various prices ranging from Rs 420/- ($6.6) to Rs 21/- ($0.3) per gram here. This place is best to suit all levels of customers.

Amazon is the world's largest retailer. They are responsible for the products that they sell and they do not want to associate with products that don't live up to their claims. Following are the reasons why you should depend on a quality retailer like Amazon.in.

• Buy always from a retailer that you know and trust! Anyone can start a website with their own brand name on the product and make any claims that they want. Therefore, there is every chance that the customers can get deceived. Hence, we recommend the best place to buy matcha green tea is Amazon.in Amazon is the world’s largest retailer. They have a reputation and you can rely on them because hundreds of health conscious matcha drinkers have reviewed the matcha that you want to buy.

• Buy from websites that make shipping and returns easy. Amazon is the only online retailer that has made clarity on their return policy, which is very simple and provides assurance to the purchaser. Not to mention that all returns include free shipping! The bottom line is customers can buy matcha that is from Japan, at Amazon, without paying tons of extra money, and waiting several extra weeks for their matcha to be delivered.

• Buy from websites that have a detailed product description. It is easy to provide a nice, aesthetic description, but consumers must also have the item specifics. For example, the exact weight of the product, and dimensions if applicable, the precise ingredients, any necessary allergy warnings. Without this information, customers cannot make an informed decision to purchase. All Amazon products always have a detailed item description.

• Buy from a website that has verified customer reviews. Most respectable online businesses have verified customer reviews, both positive and negative, to provide their customers with information on their products. This helps customers to take a decision about a product before they order it. Not all customers give a positive review. Therefore, a transparent retailer would capture both the positive and negative feedbacks. While it is not a bad sign to have happy customers, it is usually too good to be true for a retailer to have a 100% satisfaction rating. It is, however, important to look for online stores that have a majority of positive reviews and/or ratings listed with the product information. Almost every single product available via Amazon has a long list of verified purchase reviews.

• Buy only from websites that have secure payments and ordering systems. Amazon has such system. Amazon assures you that your information is completely protected and that your purchases are safe.

I think I have explained clearly of where to buy matcha green tea powder. It goes without saying that consumers want to ensure they are getting the value for their money on a quality product, from a trusted source. I believe that Amazon is the best place to buy matcha green tea powder for obvious reasons. Mainly there is a great deal of variety in regards to brands and grades. When purchasing matcha, there is only one place to shop, Amazon!
