Explant Surgery Is a Necessary Step Towards Your True Healthy Self

Published

Explant Surgery Image

The need for explant surgery by women has been on the rise in recent times. Celebrities such as Crystal Hefner, Eden Sassoon, and Sharon Osbourne, have also joined the fray and have had their breast implants removed. In this article, I will discuss breast implants and the options available for you to have them removed.

Why Do You Need Explant Surgery?

You have to understand that the symptoms of breast implant disease vary from body to body due to personal differences, type of breast implants and the progression of the disease. However it turns out that some symptoms appear somewhat earlier and more consistently, such as cognitive dysfunction (clouding of mind, memory loss), fatigue/low energy, headaches, joint and muscle pain, recurring infections,hair loss, enlarged lymph nodes, skin rash, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, thyroid and adrenal gland problems. All these symptoms are your body’s indication that your implants are the cause of the disease and should be removed as soon as possible.

You see, sometimes we have breast implants for medical conditions say for example after a mastectomy, or for beauty purposes. However, later in life, explant surgery becomes inevitable for different reasons.

Health Risks

In addition to the above, implants pose serious health risks. For example, you can develop life-threatening diseases such as breast cancer and breast implant-related lymphoma.

Rupture And Leakage

According to studies, breast implant rupture and leakage are much more common than previously thought. It’s a very common fact that a rupture doesn’t show any symptoms that warned the women that they have a rupture.  Silicone from a ruptured implant can migrate into the breast and arms and into the lymph nodes under the arm; from there it can go to the lungs, liver, or other organs.

Toxification

Another fact you have to know about breast implants is that they are very toxic. The thing is breast implants cause toxicity in the body several different ways.

First, breast implants are large foreign objects that constantly affect the immune system, ultimately suppressing it and causing its dysfunction and failure. Immune system dysfunction leads to autoimmune symptoms and diseases. Immune system failure allows opportunistic organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites to grow uncontrollably. Bacteria and fungi can cause autoimmune diseases. Moreover, breast implants are essentially two large bags of aggressive cytotoxic, neurotoxic and carcinogenic chemicals that are highly inflammatory to our tissues, organs, and glands.

Secondary, you should know that breast implants contain heavy metals. Over the years, breast implant manufacturers have used a variety of heavy metals in their silicone recipes. Heavy metals confer on toxicity, disease, and the many diseases that plague humanity. You have to understand that basically, every chemical used to make silicone breast implants is toxic to our body.

Some people believe (and this belief is actively promoted by plastic surgeons who make money on women’s insecurities and men’s desire to objectify women) that saline implants can’t cause any health issues. But unfortunately, it’s not true. You have to understand that the shell on silicone and saline implants is comprised of silicone and over 40 other toxic chemicals such as zinc, tin, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, formaldehyde, talc, etc. Your immune system is constantly fighting these chemicals, leaving you vulnerable to other illnesses. The estimated time frame for these bags to start falling apart is 8-10 years, although some people experience problems soon after implanting and some much later.

Other Dangers

Other dangers associated with breast implant include infections that can cause internal bleeding, a build-up of calcium, diagnosis of cancer, liver and kidney dysfunction, toxic shock symptoms, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, leaky gut, symptoms of or diagnosis of lyme disease, and an accumulation of dead tissues around the implant, which can be fatal.

Explant Surgery Process and What to Expect

Yolanda Hadid Explant Quote Image

The explant surgery process is dependent on a number of factors. They include; the type of implant you have, the reason for extraction, and the size of the implant.

For instance, a doctor can deflate saline implants under local anesthesia and remove them after six weeks, unlike the silicone gel type of implants. Therefore, it is critical that you visit a qualified surgeon to administer the correct procedure.

The aftermath of an implant removal process would be conducting procedures such as closing up the spaces left by the implants, breast lifts and tightening of the breast tissue.

Recovery after Surgery

One of the essential steps you can take after surgery is to detoxify your system. This is because breast implants can cause toxicity that may tamper with your immune system.

For an effective detoxification process, after a professional surgeon correctly extracts the implant, stick to a healthy diet to heal your gut. Similarly, check for any infections and monitor your progesterone levels. Finally, support your immune and endocrine system by taking relevant supplements and minerals.

Getting Your Sexy Back

eden sassoon quote image

After a successful explant surgery, you need to love and appreciate your true beauty. But, how do you achieve this?

Get your spirituality right: Engage yourself in activities like yoga that prompt you to know your inner self. In other words, invest your time, mind, and soul in activities that can please your spirit. A spiritual mentor or group meetings can help you to learn how to appreciate your natural beauty.

Cultivate a positive attitude towards yourself: have self-love, and develop high self-esteem. In addition, do things that can please you and give you inner peace rather than trying to seek out unwarranted attention.

Eat healthily and exercise regularly: a balanced diet coupled with regular exercises can bring about a healthy body, mind, and soul.

Frequently Asked Explant Surgery Questions and Answers

Do breast implants need to be removed?

Yes, explant surgery is a critical step towards total recovery from any breast implant-related illness or any complication they might have caused.

Can you remove breast implants?

Your breast implants can be removed through methods such as total capsulectomy.

How much does explant surgery cost?

A number of plastic surgeons give a figure of between $5000 and $7000.

Does Medical insurance cover removal of breast implants?

Some of the insurance companies would consider your case if the initial idea of getting the breast implants was considered medically necessary. Others would not.

How long does explant surgery take?

The surgery can take between one and three hours under general anesthesia.

How long does it take to heal after breast implant removal?

It depends on an individual’s body. Majority of the women take between one and two years for them to heal completely. Others take less than a year and others more than two years.

Will I look the same as before after explant surgery?

You can look the same and even better especially if they perform a breast lift after the removal of the implant. Ideally, your surgeon can remove the extra breast skin that might remain especially if your implant was bigger than your natural breast tissue, and tighten the breast tissue to give them better support.

The Bottom Line

Have you finally decided to remove your implant? Visit the right surgeon, one who is experienced in total capsulectomy explant and can commit to extracting all the capsule tissue. This way, you have the best chance of full recovery.

And if you’ve been thinking of having a boob job done, hold that thought. Regardless of the situation, you need to learn to accept and love your natural beauty. A woman’s desire to be sexually objectified by men is not good for your mental health and spiritual development. Eventually, reality will catch up with you. Why have explant surgery ten years later when you can prevent that today?

Every Woman Should Consider A Throat Chakra Healing! Here Is Why

Published

on

Throat Chakra Healing Image

For women, the throat chakra is one of the most problematic areas. That’s why every woman needs to consider a throat chakra healing.

Why Do Women Have Blocks In Their Throat Chakras?

From time immemorial, women have never been welcomed to express their feelings, emotions, or opinions, – it has always been the prerogative of men. For women, oratory was considered a disadvantage rather than a virtue. The advantage of women was the ability to remain silent, to suppress the desire to speak and express themselves. Whether we like it or not, the block in the throat chakra is passed on to us, women, at the genetic level from generation to generation.

When the inner truth is not spoken aloud but is suppressed, the creative energy (CHA) cannot be manifested. And when the energy is blocked, it becomes a destructive force (SO).

Common Reasons of  the Blocks In Women’s Throat Chakras

no profanity image

I noticed that nowadays many women can’t discuss their true feelings, which undoubtedly leads to the blocking of the throat chakra.

Another reason for the imbalance or blockage in the throat chakra is dysfunction of the thyroid gland. The mental reason for this is the lack of creative realization, the inability, and fears of self-expression. This is why women have more frequent thyroid problems than men. Men are easier to implement themselves using a business that actually is their “creativity”.

The third most common reason for the throat chakra problem is criticism. Women tend to criticize themselves as well as others. This can cause a cough or even asthma.

Fear to express your truth, feelings, and emotions also can affect the condition of the gums and teeth. A suppressed desire to speak can cause pain and inflammation in the gums and the sensitivity of your teeth.

Why Is the Throat Chakra So Important?

Vishuddha (throat chakra) is responsible for communication with other people and for creative self-expression. This is where inspiration and personal development begin. This chakra also gives us the ability to listen and hear – not only other people but also our own inner voice.

Vishuddha Chakra Test Image

The throat chakra is located in the larynx, at the base of the neck.

These are the signs of imbalanced Vishuddha:

– difficulty in expressing thoughts;
– fear of public speaking;
profanity;
– grumbling;
– lie;
– criticism, condemnation of yourself and others.

Now let’s talk about how to do a throat chakra healing.

7 Ways To Do A Throat Chakra Healing

1. Mantra Chanting

The throat chakra is associated with sound through speech and music. Any word that is spoken aloud creates vibrations in the surrounding world. These vibrations can be beneficial or harmful. It all depends on the intentions and desires with which the words were spoken.

Vishuddha chakra mantra sounds like “HAM”.

When you’re chanting the mantra you need to feel the vibration in the area of your throat chakra.

To perform HAM mantra for your throat chakra healing you need to:

  1. take a deep breath;
  2. at the moment of exhalation, open your lips and sing the beginning of the mantra: “ha-a-a…»;
  3. close your lips and sing the ending: “m-m-m-m»;
  4. then take another breath and repeat the cycle.

While singing the mantra feel the expanding of the throat chakra. Visualize that the neck and throat are filled with pure blue light. Continue for at least 5 minutes.

At the end of the exercise, you will feel the energy pulsating in the neck area. It is a sign of the throat chakra activation.

2. Yantra Meditation

Yantra is a unique mystical symbol used for meditation. Yantra for Vishuddha chakra is a triangle pointing downwards. Inside the triangle, there is a circle. For your throat chakra healing, it is very powerful to do a Vishuddha yantra meditation.

Vishuddha Yantra Meditation

For performing a Vishuddha Yantra meditation you need a picture of Vishuddha Yantra. You can draw it by hand, print it, or use a video animation.

Take a pose for meditation. The spine should be straight. Place the picture of the yantra next to you so that you can see it well.

Start studying the yantra. The three sides of the triangle represent the past, present, and future. It is important to remember all these times in order to remain in the present, to awaken to the life of an Eternal being.

The circle inside the triangle indicates the dormant psychic abilities in each of us. We get our freedom when we manage to open the throat chakra. However, your main attention should be focused on the continuation of spiritual development and the acquisition of Divine consciousness.

Now it is time to also think about ways to communicate with others. What kind of atmosphere do you create around you?
Are you ready for a deeper communication with others?

In the following days, watch your behavior. What and how do you say? What do you bring to the surrounding space — goodness or disharmony?

After completing your thoughts, sit still for a couple of minutes.

3. Writing

Writing notes image

Writing a diary is another powerful way to do your throat chakra healing. It is very helpful to write down all your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, especially if you don’t feel comfortable sharing them with others. Writing will help you remove the block from your throat, especially if you will read what you wrote out loud.

4. Aromatherapy

Essential Oils For Depression Image

Using aromatherapy is another wonderful tool you can use for your throat chakra healing. Essential oils can actually remove the block in your Vishuddha. For this purpose, you can use sandalwood and lavender oil (aroma lamp, inhalation, etc.).

5. Clothing

heart chakra meditation image

Did you know that the clothes that you’re wearing can actually help you with your throat chakra healing? For this purpose, when you’re choosing your clothes give preference to blue color. Ideally, it would be wearing a blue scarf around your neck. The vibration of blue color will resonate with the vibrations of the throat chakra and strengthen it.

6. Crystals

Another powerful tool for opening your throat chakra are crystals. It’s very good for your throat chakra healing to wear a necklace with lapis lazuli, blue calcite, aquamarine, turquoise, sodalite, amazonite, or blue tourmaline.

7. Nature

Mindful meditation image

The element of the throat chakra is ether. That’s why spending time outside under the open the blue sky is already a healing itself. Spend more time in nature looking and meditating on the blue sky.

Conclusion

As you can see Throat chakra healing is very important especially for women. Learn to talk about your feelings and express yourself! Many women are afraid of looking weak, silly and even judged. But the thing is – it shouldn’t matter. This is the ego that wants you to stay quiet and in your “comfort zone”.

7 Effective Tips On How To Heal Your Most Debilitating Core Wounds

Published

on

Core Wounds Image

Core wounds can be thought of as your deepest traumas and experiences in childhood or adulthood. When severe trauma occurs, the wound is stored in our cellular memory and stays with us until we are willing and able to face the pain and clear the trauma.

Obviously, nothing can undo the original trauma but we can heal from the wounds and get to a place where the trauma and pain actually serve our highest purpose. We can re-write new, more loving experiences into our reality.

Our core wounds tend to have a great affect on our entire existence and how we receive others, how we think, act, love, relate and how we see the world.

They can literally affect our entire lives and every single relationship that we have, personal and professional, so you can see how vital it is to begin the inner work of healing and creating brand new beautiful experiences that help you on your way to healing.

By transmuting the trauma through facing it, we can get to a place where we are able to look at the pain as a blessing that came to strengthen and reveal our true power. We can go from depressed and anxious to grateful and humble. It is possible to achieve a true sense of peace and resolve.

When your pain no longer causes your voice to tremble and your light to be dimmed you know you are on the path of healing. Your brightest days are ahead and you can use your experiences to now serve the higher good of all by empowering others to know that they too can heal.

So let’s talk about how we can get there and where to start.

Tip 1: Acceptance & Acknowledgement

Bali meditation image

It is vital that we face and accept the trauma that caused our wounds.

We have to be willing to be brave and take small steps towards acknowledging our pain and experiences and how they made us feel at the time and how we feel in the present. We cannot heal what we are not willing to see.

A lot of times just acknowledging the trauma will begin to diminish the fears we have around the experience. Anytime we are able to face our fears and sadness the power it has over us is greatly lessened.

Denial and avoidance only fuels strengthens and lengthens the severity of our pain. Anything we run from eventually catches us. All pain kept in secrecy develops into dis-ease.

To begin to peel back the layers, acknowledge the pain and accept that you can not change what happened to you but that you do indeed have power over how you show up and respond to your core wounds.

Tip 2: Forgiveness

forgiveness image

This is one of the most important parts of our healing journey. We must truly, from our heart, release hatred, blame, resentment, anger, and vindictiveness. This part can be tricky because most often times these are the natural feelings that arise within us when we’ve been hurt and victimized.

It’s completely fine to honor these feelings, but then we must move into a space of compassion towards ourselves and yes those who hurt us. This may seem so foreign and difficult at the beginning but the forgiveness is not only for those who hurt us, it’s for us. For us to heal our hearts so that we can create a harmonious life and take back our power.

This is how we stop allowing the trauma and core wounds to control us. This is how you take the power they once had over you and become victorious.

Now we are moving into clearing and releasing.

Forgiveness is one of the most powerful, transmuting expressions that we have. We can not underestimate the beauty of forgiveness. It’s a gift that we can freely offer to ourselves and those who hurt us.

If you find yourself struggling with forgiveness this most likely means that you are attached and still holding onto the core wound and that your ego is blocking your heart from opening to see that all things come to serve our higher good, even though we cannot see or feel it on the front end.

Hurt people tend to hurt others. Most often the ones who do harm to us are in a world of pain themselves and this under no circumstances excuses their behavior, but it does offer an explanation into the psychology of the perpetrator and may offer a glimpse of understanding that will allow you to choose forgiveness over resentment.

Tip 3: Healing Modalities

Sound Healing Image

We live in a time where there are more healing modalities available than ever before. I recommend researching and getting involved with things that speak to you and resonate with your heart. This could mean support groups with others that have gone through similar traumatic experiences.

There is sound healing with vibratory effects that assist in literally vibrating your cells to clear and transmute painful memories from your aura. There are light therapies available to assist your brain, and body to heal.

Daily affirmations and mantras that reprogram your subconscious mind with high vibrational messages to serve you in your daily life and help you create a healthy mindset.

Tip 4: Daily Prayer And Meditation

Daily Prayer And Meditation Image

Daily prayer and meditation will allow you to still your mind, listen to your higher wisdom, and receive light energies that also transmute density in your energetic field.

Medicinal ceremonies and gatherings. Cacao and kambo to mention a couple and various other guided medicinal sacred experiences that offer tremendous release and clearing are also available. I highly suggest that you reach out to those who have had success with these types of modalities and only seek those that have been proven to be safe with competent and heart centered practitioners. Use your discernment.

Find a spiritually inclined therapist or mentor that can walk with you on your journey, hold space, support and advise. I say spiritual because although a medically inclined therapist can be very helpful, we are spiritual beings having a human experience and we need someone who understands/innerstands this aspect because most trauma can not be healed by typical western means. We have to address our spiritual bodies for true healing to take place.

The placebo effect is scientific proof that we have the ability to heal ourselves. Our thoughts are powerful enough to bring things into existence.

Tip 5: Detox

healing journey image

It’s vital that we detox from all things that may hinder our healing. These can include foods, alcohol, drugs, people, places, relationships, unhealthy sex, and even jobs.

When we are embarking on a healing journey the commitment has to be solid and disciplined. Medicating and numbing the pain only suppresses our wounds. Every emotional imbalance we have wants to be healed and loved.

Our physical, mental and spiritual bodies are consistently trying to heal themselves but when we aren’t present to the messages and signals we remain in a state of pain and disillusionment.

Mind, body, and spirit work together and if we are full of junk food, mind-numbing substances and resistances we continue to be clouded, depressed, anxious and discouraged.

Detoxing and creating healthier habits is a life long commitment.

This can be extremely difficult for some and the part that makes most people give up and remain stuck in their wounds.

The initial start of detoxing is the most uncomfortable but if we stick with it even for just 30 days of clean eating, affirmations, sober living, exercise, and support you will literally be stunned at how much lighter and confident you become.

The next 30 days become easier as you gain more inspiration, insight, and encouragement to keep going. What’s 30, 60, 90, even 120 days of committed efforts towards your lifetime of healing and clearing? Once we get past those hard hurdles our spirit begins to soar and we start to become clearer.

We begin feeling like we can actually heal, our physical body starts to feel more energized and our daily attitude becomes hopeful, we feel recharged and ignited.

If you start feeling like it’s too much, remind yourself of the life you have envisioned for yourself, being happy, healed and healthy in contrast to your wounded self. Choose healing. If you fall short, start again!

Tip 6: Boundaries

healthy boundaries image

Learning how to put healthy boundaries in place will be beneficial and is required in order to fully heal.

Setting boundaries may look like the following:

  • Set a boundary for what you do not want to see, hear or do.
  • Decide limits – what you will and will not tolerate.
  • Don’t allow others to control how you spend your time and energy.
  • Pay attention to people’s reactions, if your boundaries make someone mad, then that person is abusing you.
  • Don’t spend time trying to change others.
  • Do not work harder on someone else’s problems than you do on your own.
  • Don’t allow someone to hurt you over and over.
  • Let people know when you’ve hit your emotional and physical limits.
  • Don’t over-give without have your needs reciprocated.
  • Speaking your truth with grace.
  • Choosing peace over drama.
  • Not participating in gossip.
  • Being clear about what your needs are.

Putting boundaries in place are the essentials for healthy living. When we first learn to put boundaries in place it’s usually uncomfortable and scary, but with practice, like anything else, it becomes second nature and you will wonder how you ever survived without them.

Tip 7: Compassion And Self-Care

self-care image

Showing ourselves compassion and giving ourselves the love we are seeking. Our inner children are always looking for acceptance and approval. We can freely give this to ourselves without requiring others to give it to us.

Be gentle and patient with your healing process. Be disciplined but flexible, some days are going be harder than others.

Eat well, sleep well, keep a clean, organized environment. This will help you maintain an energetic field clear of debris which will give you easier access to mental clarity and optimal health.

Empathy does not equate to feeling sorry for yourself, make sure you aren’t practicing martyrdom/self-victimization.

This journey will require every ounce of resilience, conviction, desire, hope, and inspiration you can muster, but it will all be returned tenfold with love, honor, joy, peace, prosperity, and freedom.

You will eventually get to a space that you can hardly remember the pain and trauma. It will no longer have a hold on you.

The Bottom Line

In conclusion, I want to encourage you to begin wherever you are. I am a living testimony that you can heal your core wounds and create the life you dream of. You are worthy! Get started living your best life!

Reach Anatomical Perfection With Iyengar Yoga Practice

Published

on

Iyengar yoga image

Today Iyengar yoga is considered one of the world’s most popular kinds of yoga. It is practiced not only in India but also in other countries. And there are reasons for that.

Iyengar yoga is an amazing tool to give your body anatomical perfection, get rid of emotional and physical stress, improve health, prolong youth and beauty.

The founder of the teaching is Bellur Krishnamachar Sundarārāja Iyengar (better known as B.K.S. Iyengar) who did everything to enable everyone to practice yoga, regardless of the level of physical shape, age, gender, flexibility and plasticity of the body.

In this article, we will share with you what Iyengar yoga is, what its features and benefits are.

What Is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar yoga is a kind of Hatha yoga, which, however, has many fundamental differences from the basic teaching. The main feature of this kind of yoga is a long and careful alignment of the asanas.

The performance of the asana is static. A practitioner “freezes” in a pose, continuing to work continuously on taking the most correct position for this pose. The performance of each asana in the teachings of Iyengar is subject to strict rules. Moreover, the asanas should be performed in a specific sequence.

The uniqueness of Iyengar yoga is an individual approach to each practitioner. Exercises are selected individually, depending on the state of health, the level of physical shape, body characteristics, the endurance of each practitioner.

Therefore, this kind of yoga can be recommended to both beginners and advanced yoga practitioners.

In his teaching, Iyengar developed a system of exercises using different props, which is especially important for beginners, as well as for people with health problems.

Iyengar yoga practitioners usually use such props as:

  • Belts;
  • Blocks;
  • Straps;
  • Blankets.
  • Bolsters;
  • Pillows;
  • Chairs.

The use of these props reduces the load on the muscles or joints, helping to build the correct posture.

This type of yoga is suitable for anybody, even for the elderly and people with health problems.

Regular Iyengar yoga classes often give a therapeutic effect – help to treat joints problems and the musculoskeletal system diseases.

Iyengar Yoga Features

Iyengar yoga practice image
  1. The main tools of Iyengar yoga practice are asanas and pranayamas. One of the distinguishing features of this type of yoga is that asanas are performed statically. That is, when taking a certain pose, it is maintained for a long time, during which a practitioner seems to freeze. Ligaments, muscles and all internal organs undergo therapeutic effects of asanas.
  2. Asanas should be performed strictly according to the rules and in a certain sequence. This is the only way to achieve the proper healing effect.
  3. Iyengar yoga is suitable for both beginners and those who have a yoga practice experience. The uniqueness of this yoga style is that depending on the level of training, health and individual characteristics of a practitioner, suitable asanas are selected for him or her. Even people with a low level of flexibility and physical endurance can start classes, gradually increasing the load.
  4. Iyengar yoga has 200 asanas. Each of them was personally tested by the founder of this yoga style.
  5. Since everyone has different degrees of training, individual physiological characteristics, and some even have health problems, Iyengar suggested using different props. Pillows, chairs, blankets, belts and other tools allow you to give the body the optimal position for performing asanas.
  6. In practice, a special place is given to yoga healing therapy. Iyengar yoga can help alleviate the condition of the practitioner with colds, colitis, gastritis, problems with the musculoskeletal system (various deformities of the spine, stoop) and other diseases. B.K.S. Iyengar tested the effectiveness of this method of healing on himself. Asanas helped Iyengar to get rid of his own diseases. Therefore he believed that yoga it the true path to health.
  7. In this yoga style, attention should be paid not only to asanas and pranayamas but also to the study of the philosophy and moral and ethical principles of the teaching. To achieve these goals, to cure diseases, to get rid of negative emotions, it is necessary to change your worldview, rethink your system of values and views.
  8. Another unique feature of Iyengar yoga is the development of a separate program exclusively for women. Due to the fact that the female body has unique physiological characteristics, and the emotional sphere of women is more sensitive than men, the Iyengar program for women is based on a special asana complex. By practicing these special asanas, a woman will learn to listen to her inner feelings and desires. In addition, she will be able to preserve the youth of her body and skin as long as possible.
  9. This yoga style pays special attention to inverted poses.
  10. Iyengar yoga uniforms relaxation and stretching of the body during staying in asana.
  11. During yoga class, the yoga teacher usually provides a detailed explanation of each asana.

The above-mentioned features of Iyengar yoga speak about the individual approach to each individual person during the classes, which makes this practice, in comparison to others, more accessible.

What Are Iyengar Yoga Benefits?

Bikram yoga benefits image

Compared to classical yoga, Iyengar yoga has some advantages. One of the most important is that this type of yoga allows you to quickly achieve the correct performance of asanas (thanks to the props), relieving excessive stress from the body.

Other benefits of Iyengar yoga relate mainly to the effects on the human body, among them such as:

  • wellbeing;
  • strengthening the musculoskeletal system;
  • the improvement in cardiac performance;
  • normalization of the nervous system;
  • strengthening of immunity;
  • getting rid of back pain and other muscle aches;
  • stabilization of a hormonal level;
  • increase of endurance, concentration, flexibility.

In addition to the above, this type of yoga increases stress resistance and helps to eliminate bad habits.

Iyengar Yoga Levels Of Difficulty

Depending on how experienced a practitioner is, this type of yoga uses different programs with appropriate levels of difficulty:

Introduction Level

This level is designed for beginners. Practitioners learn to practice relaxation, asanas in a sitting and standing position. Introduction level prepares practitioners to the inverted poses.

Basic Level

This level includes a more thorough practice of asanas in sitting and standing positions and also inverted poses. Then there is a transition to more complex exercises – headstand and shoulders stand. Practitioners prepare for the practice of pranayama.

Intensive Level

The most difficult asanas and pranayama are performed on this level.

Meditation Technique

According to the Iyengar method, a conscious approach to the world around us is continuous meditation. This means that entering into a meditative state you need to live in it constantly. Exactly the same approach applies to Iyengar yoga. According to Iyengar, meditation is not the end of all asanas, it accompanies all asanas, helping to free the mind during the yoga practice and through the purity of consciousness to achieve awareness.

Iyengar Yoga For Women

Yoni Yoga Image

There is a separate school of Iyengar yoga for women. Its author is B.K.S. Iyengar’s daughter – Geeta S. Iyengar. Since her childhood, she attended yoga classes, conducted by her father, and was well versed in both theory and practice.

Geeta Iyengar identified important cycles in a woman’s life, such as:

  • puberty;
  • menstruations;
  • pregnancy;
  • menopause.

In accordance with these periods, she selected special asanas for yoga practice.

There is an assumption that too intense yoga classes due to the impact of yoga practice on the hormonal background lead a woman to early menopause. For this reason, Geeta Iyengar advised practicing yoga gradually, without overloading. Also, she found it necessary to choose the right asanas in special periods, such as conception or pregnancy. She said that some asanas can prevent conception or can even cause a miscarriage.

The Bottom Line

Due to the fact that Iyengar yoga is available to almost everyone without restrictions, it is currently one of the most popular types of yoga in the world. Iyengar yoga classes are a great opportunity to develop physical endurance, improve your body, develop coordination and flexibility. A very important result of Iyengar yoga practice is getting rid of various negative emotions, depression, and anxiety. As a result, mental balance and positive emotions are acquired.
