YOGA – A GUIDE TO INFORMATION RESOURCES (PART 2)
Integrate Yoga Into Your Lifestyle
My desire to integrate Yoga into my lifestyle has existed for a while. Although, initially, I learned a lot about yogic practices, by accessing different resource guides and organizations, I gained a lot of information that will help me understand all types of yogic practices and styles that are very beneficial for my health and wellness. The reason for creating this guide is to help those who want to understand Yoga, its different types and practices that include both physical and mental techniques, and how it can impact the health and well-being of an individual.
The guide is divided into different sections (Read part 1), including guidance resources. You can get read a wide range of books, articles, blogs, associations, foundations and non-profit organizations, ayurvedic treatment, institutes dedicated to offering yogic therapies, and sources to access the power of healing yogic music. The resources cover a wide range of aspects like yoga practices and styles for beginners and pros, where you can find experts and teachers, how yogic practices help in maintaining a mind and body balance, along with how you can integrate yoga into your kid’s lifestyle along with its practices for parents as well.
Writing this guide gave me great pleasure in sharing information with other people interested in Yoga; however, the most challenging part I encountered was determining which resource to include and which to leave because of the large volume of valuable information available. Several resources offered similar services, and selecting one resource that perfectly fits this resource guide was quite a difficult task for me. Another significant problem I encountered in preparing this guide is analyzing and summarizing every resource so that it not only presents information about the resource but even explains how it can help the target audience. My point was to present resources in such a manner so that those who are interested in Yoga can easily understand why the given resource is helpful for them.
Moreover, I wanted to present the resources covering every aspect of Yoga, whether practicing on your own through tutorials or becoming a member of different associations and organizations. Another area I could have done better in preparing the resource guide was that many resources targeted a specific region or area, which I consider narrowing the field. I intend to include resources that provide helpful information for people worldwide, not for a particular site.
The time duration involved in preparing the resource guide was longer than expected because of the huge amount of information available. Selecting and filtering resources from a widely available database has been challenging; however, it opened new venues for me to increase my yogic knowledge.
Creating this guide was an exciting task for me as it took me back to my old days when I was looking for resources and guides to understand more about Yoga. I have included as many resources as possible covering nearly all elements of yogic practices and techniques so that the reader finds it a complete guide. Every moment I spent preparing the guide was worthwhile as I have developed a feeling of providing helpful information to people who want it. In this way, I intend to help them understand how they can balance their physical and mental health and live their daily lives more brilliantly. My creation will serve as an excellent guide for your requirements. I have included links to every resource so you do not have to do much work searching these resources online.
