Yoga is an ancient philosophy that has been around for thousands of years. Originating in India approximately 5000yrs ago its aim is to achieve spiritual enlightenment through the union of one’s mind and body (Better health Vic.Gov).
No equipment is specifically required to practice the art of Yoga; you can strike a pose almost anywhere in or outdoors. However due to the fact that many of the asanas (poses) do take place sitting or lying down, a yoga mat would be more comfortable to practice on.
There are many different types and styles of Yoga. Some of the most popular styles include Ashtanga, Bikram, Hatha, Vinyassa, and Kundalini (MedicineNet.com). Each of the styles is comprised of asanas (yoga postures or poses) and consists of a variety of lying, sitting, standing and inverted, or upside down poses (Better health Vic.Gov).
The practice of yoga is made up of two systems, exercise and breathing and has many health benefits for the individual. Primarily yoga asanas develop your strength and flexibility but they also have a flow on effect for other parts of your body. Yoga has shown to have a positive effect on the cardiovascular, digestive, musculature and nervous systems through the improvement of blood circulation (Better health Vic.Gov).
There is a lot of information regarding the history of resistance training but it is believed that it originates from ancient Greece (6th century BC). According to legend, Resistance training dates back to the great athlete wrestler Milo of Croton, who carried an ox each day from birth on his shoulder, As the ox grew in size so did his strength.
This principal used by Milo of increasing the weight or resistance to build strength has been proved in modern times today as an effective tool in the development of strength and weight control in people of all ages. britannica (2013). weightlifting. [online]
