A Manglik has to marry a Manglik only or otherwise the spouse dies. 2.A person can be a Double Magnlik 3.A person can be Triple Manglik 4.A person can be a Quadric-Manglik 5.Mangal dosha if prevalent , vanishes at a certain age, mostly 28 years 6.Mangal Dosha dalays one’s marriage 7.Presence of Mangal in 1/2/4/7/8/12 houses from Ascendant makes one Manglik. 8.Manglik Dosha is also seen from the lunar chart. 9.There is no remedy of Mangal Dosha, if it is found later that one of the spouses is a Manglik. 10.It shall be OK to solemnise a marriage between a non Manglik female to a Manglik male.

Mangal or Mars is intrinsically a cruel planet but it also represents for vigour, vitality, energy etc in ones horoscope. In a female horoscope it is the karaka of the menstrual cycle. Mangal has the lordship of two Rashis namely Aries or Mesha and Vrishchikka or Scorpio and they are the 1st and 8th respectively a combination which is not considered good in Vedic Astrology. Mangal, in addition to where placed, influences other houses through its aspect ( Dristhi) as well and those are the forth , seventh and eighth from it placement. As intrinsically it is a cruel or not forgiving planet its placement in certain houses was not considered good and the native was termed as Manglik even if the planet was considered good for the horoscope due to its lordship. This Manglik term has been coined in modern times and there is no mention of this Dosha in our ancient texts. This clearly shows that this Dosha was seen at par with other Dosha and was not hyped as it has been done in the modern times. The present day Astrologers term a native Manglik when Mars is placed in 1,2,4,7,8,or 12th house from the ascendant and to make the matter even worse some astrologer even see it from the lunar chart.

Let us shed away all the fears Mars carries on its shoulders.

1.It is not necessary that a Manglik marries a Manglik. If a person has to die after marriage it will due to the influence of his own planet and not due to wrong placement of Mars in his spouse’s horoscope. The death inflicting tendencies will be in the natives own chart. The matching of chart has to be done correctly to check the probability of this occurrence. 2.Like wise double Manglik is also an imaginative prospective coined by greedy astrologers. Ketu , who intrinsically is like Mangal can have the potential to make a person double manglik but even here its placement in the house has to be properly studied, as it behaves and results in the manner of the lord of the house where it is placed. 3.As described above triple manglik is a not existent thing in Vedic Astrology. 4.Similarly Quadric Manglik is also an imaginary yoga created by virtue of greed of the astrologers. 5.If a person happens to be a Manglik then he remains so and it does not get washes away at any age. 6.Mangal is in no way responsible for your late marriage. If it has happened there is some other combination which has failed to attract you and your astrologers. 7. Mangal influences three houses in addition the house where it placed and if we will find that if Mangal is situated in other house than the manglik houses then also it will put a considerable effect on the manglik houses. For example if Mangal is placed in ninth house of the horoscope of an individual, then it will be spoiling the 12th and 4th house by forth aspect and 8th aspect respectively. Therefore placement of Mangal in ninth can also be described as a Manglik position, like wise other non-manglik position can bring the same results. That means we all have misunderstood the concept of Mangal and created a thumb rule to describe the ill effects of Mangal for those people who do not wish to understand the basic concept. Without understanding its placements, its constellation and other finer points no one can be described as a Manglik. 8.Mangal Dosha is never ever seen from the lunar chart. If we combine both, no one in this world shall be a non -manglik. 9.There are various methods propagated in Vedic Astrology, which can lessen the effect of Mangal Dosha, but the correct method should be chosen with caution, only after a good verification of Horoscope /kundli or otherwise the effects may not be lasting. 10.Never ever pack off your non- Maglik daughter to a man who is a proven Manglik without making their charts match as it can fetch long lasting effects.

If you often experience digestive problems including constipation, irritable bowel, acidity, heavy stomach, acid refluxes, gas, or stomach pain, yoga may just be the perfect fix for you!

Yoga is one of the most popular alternative medical treatments which are growing rapidly around the world. For people who are looking to get away from over the counter drugs, yoga offers an alternative with its holistic approach to health.

Yoga has proven itself in providing a wide variety of health benefits both physical as well as mental, including alleviation and even prevention of digestive distress. Therefore the goal of yoga is joining together body and mind into a state of balance and harmony.

There are many poses that youll find in yoga that stimulate and motivate organs such as the pancreas, intestines, and stomach. Due to this, these organs become incredibly strong and healthy. Here are some of the great benefits of doing yoga; It can add to the circulation of the gastrointestinal function, help you to increase the absorption of sustenance, reduce the level of acid in your stomach, helps to make a larger amount of mucous, help to decrease the pressures of gas, and can completely remove any constipation problems.

Part of doing yoga is learning the myriad of different positions that affect the body. The idea is to put your body into the position and hold it for a set amount of time. The theory is that each position can have a different impact on the body. For example, some postures restrict the flow of blood into certain areas of the body. Thus when the position is released, a rush of blood and oxygen enter that part of the body. This can be very effective in the digestive process.

If you want to improve your digestion, you can try some yoga pose such as Bhadrasana (the Gracious pose), Danda Mayurasana (the Peacock pose), Shashankasana (the Moon pose), Moola Bandhasana (the root lock), Uttana Mandukasana (the Frog pose), Virasana (the hero pose), Bhujangasana (or Cobra), Ustrasana (the Camel pose), and Supta Vajrasana (the Supine Diamond pose).

Another important part of yoga is yoga breathing exercises. Yoga breathing increase the blood flow to the digestive tract stimulating the intestinal action peristalsis making digestion more efficient. Yoga even calms and relaxes digestive system leading to effective elimination of toxins. Various forward bends increase the spaces in the abdomen facilitating the release of entrapped gases.

A basic breathing exercise begins by simply watching your breath. Sit down, close your eyes, and pay attention to each inhalation and exhalation. Place one hand on your stomach and feel it move as you inhale into your belly. Breathe gently and begin to inhale and exhale on a count of four. You can then increase this to inhaling for four and exhaling completely on a count of eight. Continue breathing in and out of your nose for at least five minutes, or longer if you wish.

Yoga has a lot of benefits including making you feel better about your body as you become stronger and more flexible, toning your muscles, reducing stress and improving your mental and physical well-being.

As we practice yoga poses we want to do also inversions. Most common inversions are the Headstand and the Shoulderstand. But there are not only those two poses which are the inverted asanas.

Any posture in which the head is below the heart is called an inversion. Whether you stand on your head, bend forward or bend back, if your head is below your heart, you are performing an inversion.

This also means that Downward Facing Dog, Standing Forward Bend and Fish pose are also inversions; although those poses are mild in comparison to a Headstand. The Camel pose can also be an inversion if you bend back far enough.

Remember – inversions are not for everyone!

Your intentions should be clear when you perform any yoga posture. If the risks may outweigh the benefits there is no logical reason why you should practice any pose which can harm you.

Contraindications for practicing inversions:

If you have any of the following conditions, please omit inversions or work with a qualified and experienced teacher who will never put you at risk and tried to modify your practice.

Anyone who has high blood pressure, heart related problems, eye issues, neck problems, epilepsy, previous stroke or sinus problems should never practice Headstand or Shoulderstand, and omit other mild inversions or be adjusted by the yoga teacher.

During any stage of pregnancy yoga should be practiced in a prenatal yoga classes specifically designed for that purpose or privately with a qualified pregnancy yoga teacher.

During menstruation Headstand and Shoulderstand preferably should be omitted and other milder inversions should not be hold for long, but because of the controversy about the inversions during menstruation it is your personal choice. Let your body guide you.

If you are a yoga teacher explain to your students why the inversions can be dangerous for them if they have any of the condition mentioned earlier.

Why not stand on your head when you have pain in your neck or neck injury? What first thing will come to your mind as you there? Ouch … my neck! Can my small neck carry my whole weight as I am inverted?

Most students put lots of weight on their head and neck instead of shoulders. Use your common sense and listen to your body. Intuition will never let you down.

Why omit headstand if I have high blood pressure? Because the danger is when your blood pressure increase from 100/60 mm Hg while standing on your feet to 150/110 mm Hg or even higher when you go for headstand.

Ashtanga Yoga is the type of yoga which was created and established by a master named K. Pattabhi Jois. Due to it’s theory containing eight different limbs, or components, it is also known as “Eight-Limb Yoga”. It doesn’t imply that the practitioner has a double set of limbs, but master Pattabhi Jois showed that the optimum path of purification is made up of the eight spiritual practices.

The basic idea is that these limbs only can be kept in balance by the appropriate application of the Ashtanga Yoga method.

The first four limbs that symbolize Ashtanga Yoga, and are considered externally correctable are (original names within double quotes):
– Moral codes or “yama”
– Self-purification or “niyama”
– Posture or “asana”
– Breath control or “pranayama”

Then there is the other set of limbs which are the internal practices:
– Sense control or “pratyahara”
– Meditation or “dhyana”
– Concentration or “dharana”
– Contemplation or “samadhi”

K. Pattabhi Jois declared that practicing these Eight Limbs as well as its sub-limbs of the external practices which contain the niyama and yama is impossible. In doing so, the body should be strong so that it can technically perform the methods well enough. If the body is weak, and the sense organs are not functioning well, practicing will never be productive at all.

This is a primary philosophy that K. Pattabhi Jois has applied, it is of prime importance for the Asthanga practitioner to learn and understand this way of thinking. This will make you confident in that the body will significantly improve and become stronger and healthier.

Vinsaya and Tristhana are performed in Ashtanga Yoga.

The Vinsaya is a style that makes Ashtanga and its fundamental principles different from the others. Vinsaya basically means the movement and breathing which is used effectively together in order to cleanse the body. Each movement done is accompanied by only one breath. Sweat is the most important product of Vinsaya. When you produce sweat, it only indicates that you are successfully applying the method. When you perform the Asanas, or postures, the body produces heat which causes your blood to “boil” and excrete the toxins outside of your body. The contaminations are found in your sweat. So the more sweat you produce, the more toxins are released. This is the natural way for the body to get rid of unwanted substances.

The poses are used to fully develop the physical strength and health of the body. It is the sequence of practices that make this possible. There are three postures used in Ashtaga Yoga.

The three are grouped on different levels:

– The first is the Primary Series which aims on aligning the body and also detoxifying it.

– The second is the Intermediate Series opening and cleansing the energy channels which comes to the process of purifying the Nervous System.

– The last series would be the Advanced Series from A to D. In this set, the grace and strength are assessed.

The Tristhana is another yoga principle which symbolizes the close union of the three places of action and attention. First is the posture, second is the breathing technique ad last is the Dristhi of the Looking Place. All these three should work altogether to perform a function.

The breathing is always controlled and synchronized with the movements, in such a way that each movement is accompanied by breath. Ujjayi Breathing is the Yoga Breathing Technique used in the implementation of Ashtanga Yoga. Applying this ancient technique is something that you should work on gradually in your daily practise. What you need to master is holding your pose longer at the same time hold your breath. This is an amazing breathing exercise that will intensify your internal fire and will toughen the Nervous System.

Both Ashtanga and Tristhana deal with the series of Dristhi. The Dristhi is defined as the point on which you acquire your focus or concentration while doing the Asana. This allows your mind to be purified and stabilized clearly.

Clearing your mind (that is sometimes compared to an over active monkey) and cleansing it is the ultimate goal in the Eight-Limb Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga.

How many times in the past few months you have said to yourself, “from tomorrow on I really start working out and nothing and nobody can stop me?” How many times did you make your statement come true? I am positive that you did start exercising every day, and the reasons for that was that you were lazy. Laziness and tiredness are the main 2 enemies of fitness

Is it a sin to be lazy?

I believe that there is not a single person in the world who would honestly say that he/she has never been lazy. Even people whose whole lives are surrounded around sports tend to get lazy sometimes. It is simply in our nature to get sluggish, and honestly it is very hard to fight this feeling. However, it is reasonable if you get lazy once in a while but it is very irresponsible if you let it become your lifestyle.

Many years ago in Christianity laziness was viewed as one of the top seven deadly sins. Although over time the nature of this concept has overcome a big change, today it is still perceived negatively. Psychology defines laziness as a mental problem, medicine as a medical condition, and biology defines it as an instinctively behavior of saving energy.The only positive effect that comes out of laziness is that we can relax by doing nothing. Doing nothing sometimes is a pretty good feeling but we definitely do not want to make it our habit.

What causes laziness?

The major cause of laziness is the excessive consumption of carbohydrates. On one hand, if you consume a big quantity of carbohydrates at once you would start feeling lazy and sleepy. If you get used to consuming a lot of them on a daily basis this would lead to a permanent unwillingness for your body to move. On the other hand, if you do not consume enough nutritional products you would cause a delay in your metabolism which would also result in a lazy behavior.

Active athletes, who overestimate their physical abilities, suffer from laziness, caused by lack of proteins. When this is combined with overtraining they tend to get into the so called “sports depression” (frequent and painful muscle pain). That is the main reason why you need to watch what you eat. Never eat too much but never skip meals as well. Eating various nutritional products on a daily basis is the key to success.

Laziness or exhaustion?

It happens often that laziness is confused with the symptoms of exhaustion. The laziness you could experience after being sick for a couple of days, after a lot of exercising, or because of a stressful situation at work, are all classic symptom of exhaustion but not of laziness. The best cure for all the situation above is to relax until you start feeling better.

The victims of fatigue

Fatigue is a mental or a physical exhaustion. Although its main cause is the lack of sleep, sleepiness is just one of the symptoms for this condition. Other reasons are: headache, general weakness, muscle pain, difficulty concentrating, slowed reflexes, and irritability. Tired people lose track of the level of their exhaustion and do not realize that if they do not take any action their condition will get even worse.

Fitness against laziness and exhaustion

It is a widespread myth that if one wants to be healthy, get in shape and lose some weight, one has to exercise a lot. As a result of this belief people started looking at fitness as a job that would only make sense if practiced to a level of exhaustion. If you start exercising to exhaustion, what do you think will happen? You will for sure overtrain. Now, the emphasis of exercising is placed on the physical activity, rather than on its intensity. It is proven that even light exercising, if done in the correct way, can definitely get you in shape and make you look better.

Remember that regular exercising reduces stress, increases your energy level, helps you sleep better at night, and keeps your body and mind in good shape.

Now, let’s get started and achieve the body shape you have been dreaming about.
