The Body During Yoga
While you are doing yoga, muscles are contracted and stretched at a cellular and biochemical level. Lipids and proteins reorganize optimally to allow for better circulation. Joint mobility and range of motion is increased and strength is built by the use of gravity. There is compression and extension to the thymus, spleen, and appendix. Lungs are stretched out and flushed by the increased blood circulation and endocrine glands are encouraged to secrete hormones. Toxins and waste are eliminated through the organs of elimination.
Blood and Circulation
During yoga, blood and calcium are brought to the bones that are being strengthened as they work against gravity. Red marrow is boosted and cholesterol is regulated in the blood. Lymph nodes are massaged and lymph is pumped throughout the body. White blood cells are distributed through the body as the lymphatic system works more efficiently.
The nerves are stimulated for improved communication with the systems of the body. The brain is also stimulated in yoga by improved circulation and varying blood pressure during the practice.
In a three-year research project at the Tokyo University Hospital, Bikram helped doctors prove that this yoga practice regenerates tissues. As a result it helps cure chronic ailments. View Bikram Yoga research results at non-profit organization, Pure Action Yoga, by clicking link below.
