If you have a medical condition for which you are receiving treatment, yoga should be considered an additional therapy, not a replacement. Talk to your health care professional if you have arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia fibromyalgia
Chronic syndrome that is characterized by musculoskeletal pain, often at multiple sites. The cause is unknown. A significant number of persons with fibromyalgia also have mental disorders, especially depression.
or other serious medical conditions. Many places offer special classes designed just for people with these conditions.
Even if you don't need a specialized class, you need to be aware of certain warnings before starting a class. For instance, high blood pressure, glaucoma glaucoma (glôk?`m?), ocular disorder characterized by pressure within the eyeball caused by an excessive amount of aqueous humor (the fluid substance filling the eyeball). or a history of retinal detachment Retinal Detachment Definition
Retinal detachment is movement of the transparent sensory part of the retina away from the outer pigmented layer of the retina. In other words, the moving away of the retina from the outer wall of the eyeball. or heart disease may mean that you should not perform certain exercises or positions (the ones than turn you upside down, like a handstand). Again, talk to your health care professional first.
For the vast majority of women, yoga is an ideal way to improve overall health. It requires little advance preparation, so once you find a class, you can jump right in.
What To Expect
Wait at least two hours after eating before starting your yoga workout. Don't worry about the "proper" outfit. Wear something comfortable that will allow you to move--leotards or yoga pants are good choices, but you can wear a T-shirt and shorts, too. (Some instructors, however, may not want you to wear baggy clothes because they want to be able to watch your form as you practice the postures. Also, baggy tops tend to fall up over the head during semi-inverted poses.) Most people practice yoga in their bare feet.
The session will probably start with gentle warm-up exercises, probably a series of breathing exercises and gentle stretches. From there, the instructor will take you through several postures (asanas). You may hold these positions for a few seconds or a few minutes. Depending on the specific posture, you will start from a seated, standing or prone position.
You may already know some of these movements--for example, the cross-legged seated Lotus position. Others will feel like the shoulder rolls or stretches you may already do. Some will be unfamiliar, though.
Don't worry if you can't do each posture perfectly--as long as you keep it safe and mindful, the pose is always perfect. Yoga is about the process itself. You don't have to do everything the class does. Go at your own pace. Eventually, you will perfect your form. Remember, the point isn't to push beyond your limits.
During the process, be sure to breathe slowly and deeply from your diaphragm and move gently. Take breaks as often as you like, and never do anything that causes any genuine pain or discomfort.
The class will probably end with some sort of relaxation exercise, perhaps meditation.
Classes generally last 60 to 90 minutes, and you may attend class once or several times a week. It's important to develop a daily practice. This means doing yoga on days you aren't in class--shoot for about 30 minutes. If that sounds daunting, start with five or 10 minutes and work up. If your schedule doesn't allow for daily practice, try for four times a week for about 45 minutes.
Aside from your regular practice, you can work on some of the seated postures during the day while at the computer. And you can practice the deep, diaphragm-based breathing techniques anywhere.
The time of day you practice depends not only on your schedule, but on your goals. In the morning, a yoga routine may energize you and prepare you for the day. That's the preferred time of day for many folks. In the evening, relaxing poses can lead to better sleep.
Many yoga classes offer a gentler workout. While yoga is not like an aerobics class, it will still be challenging. There is a great increase, too, in the number of physically strenuous, faster-paced classes on schedules these days. Regardless of which experience you choose, when you finish, you shouldn't feel exhausted. You should feel refreshed, relaxed and energized.
There are no negative side effects Side effects
Effects of a proposed project on other parts of the firm. to yoga, but as with any exercise program, it's always possible to hurt yourself, especially if you try to explore advanced postures before you are ready. While you are practicing yoga, always listen and respond to what your body is telling you. One of the fundamental concepts in yoga is nonviolence or "ahimsa ahimsa (?h?m`sä) [Sanskrit,=noninjury], ethical principle of noninjury to both men and animals, common to Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism. Ahimsa became influential in India after 600 B.C., contributing to the spread of vegetarianism. ," and it begins with the self. This mindfulness will help you reduce the chances of injury, and it's really at the heart of yoga.
At first, it's natural to feel a little sore, especially if you haven't been exercising lately. But if the soreness is severe or persists, talk to your instructor. If you feel pain in your joints, talk to your instructor right away. A reasonable amount of muscle soreness is normal, joint pain is not. If the joint pain persists, talk with your regular health care professional.
It's always advisable to check with your health care professional before embarking on any exercise program, particularly if you are out of shape, over 65 or have serious health problems. You definitely need to do so if you have high blood pressure, glaucoma, arthritis (particularly rheumatoid arthritis rheumatoid arthritis
Chronic, progressive autoimmune disease causing connective-tissue inflammation, mostly in synovial joints. It can occur at any age, is more common in women, and has an unpredictable course. ), spinal disk injuries, a history of retinal detachment or heart disease, or if you are pregnant. And be sure to inform the yoga instructor, too. If you have any of these conditions, it may be a good idea to begin your journey with one or more private sessions so you can better understand how to tailor the practice to accommodate your needs.
You may notice that your general health improves as you continue to make yoga a regular part of your life. But no matter how good you feel, don't stop your regular treatments. Continue to take any prescribed medications until your health care professional advises otherwise.

OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced vívokí (veevo-key) -- a small, lightweight and water resistant (10m) all-day activity monitor designed to improve employee wellness and inspire those individuals to make healthy habits stick. Vívokí seamlessly integrates into corporate wellness programs to provide motivation and accountability for participants. Vívokí records steps, distance, calories and intensity of exercise. Five LED lights indicate the user's progress toward a personalized daily goal. The new device and wellness solution will be showcased at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in the Digital Health and Fitness area (South Hall #26300).
"With vívokí, Garmin now offers a complete portfolio of wellness and fitness devices that are suitable for an entire workplace population, no matter how big or small," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. "Thanks to a simple wireless uploading process and a robust online activity database, employees and wellness providers can easily view their progress and set new goals."
Users' activity data is sent wirelessly from vívokí to a wellness partner's site via a wireless access point and requires no effort from the user. These access points can be installed by a company's IT department, allowing for hassle-free data uploads from participants' devices. Participants can then view their progress on the wellness partner's site or from the Garmin Connect(TM) mobile app.
Vívokí adds to the robust lineup of Garmin fitness devices such as the popular Forerunner® and Edge® series and the new vívofit(TM). These devices may all be used with corporate wellness programs through the use of the Garmin Connect API. This allows corporate wellness programs to engage employees who are already using Garmin fitness devices, because now they can validate their activities through the free online community, Garmin Connect-- where users have logged over 4 billion miles to date.
"Integrating with the Garmin Connect API was an essential part of our fitness device integration strategy," said Russell Benaroya, EveryMove CEO. "Garmin Connect was one of the most requested services by our users and Garmin has been a great partner to work with."
Garmin has been providing fitness monitoring devices for over a decade, and today offers a broad range of activity and fitness monitors to engage an entire workplace population. Garmin partners can access the API and these trusted products can be used within a company's corporate wellness program, providing motivation and validation for the efforts of participants.
Garmin users have access to Garmin Connect, a free online community where members can review their workouts, share activities, consult training plans, engage in leader-boards and explore new places to exercise.
Wellness members, in participating plans, can choose to share their fitness data from Connect with their wellness program -- a simple, one-time process. Then, every time a user uploads an activity from their device, participating wellness companies automatically receive a summary of the workout, providing objective information to recognize the member's active lifestyle.
"It's been great working with the Garmin team to create a seamless experience for our members that provides them with all the benefits of Garmin Connect and Vitality incentives in recognition of their efforts," said Stephen Mitchley, The Vitality Group chief operating officer.
Today, program participants are able to share fitness data from a growing list of wellness companies, including EveryMove, Redbrick Health and The Vitality Group. For more information on becoming a Garmin partner or affiliate, or to start using the Garmin API, visit www.garmin.com/corporatewellness.
Vívokí will be available spring 2014. Vívokí and the Garmin Connect API are the latest from Garmin's expanding fitness segment, which focuses on developing technologies and innovations to enhance users' lives and promotes healthy and active lifestyles. Whether it's running, cycling, or other athletic pursuits, Garmin fitness devices are becoming essential tools for athletes both amateur and elite.

By Chris Vellacott and Jemima Kelly LONDON (Reuters) – Britain's insurers will lose control of a market worth 15 billion pounds ($25 billion) a year under a surprise pension reform announced by the government, and will struggle to make up the hit to profits any time soon, according to analysts. This dismantles a captive market for annuity providers such as Legal & General and Resolution, which will now have to compete for pensions business against other investment products. Their shares dropped sharply on Wednesday, and analysts see little prospect of a rapid recovery. “This radical piece of legislation will destroy ...read more Source: Yahoo News – Health
