In terms of a Yoga class, a practice that weaves together specific pranayama techniques into a flowing sequence of challenging Yoga asanas will demand a student’s complete attention. As the mind settles into one-pointed awareness, the ability to rationally analyze every moment will diminish and the tactile, intuitive part of the mind will become more dominant. In this way, creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems will arise from within.
These types of kramas or Yoga asana sequences certainly do help to boost students’ metabolisms, burn calories and expedite weight loss. However, it is also important to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of your students through a regular practice of pranayama exercises, in order to facilitate mental well-being and hormonal balance.
