Differences between Exercises and Yogasana


Body Exercises Yogasans
The body becomes stiff due to unnatural pressure. The body becomes elastic.
Glands are not evenly influenced. The glands secrete their juices in regulated manner.
The waste matter is not dispelled by the arteries completely. The entire waste matter is excreted by the arteries.
Breathing activity becomes erratic. Owing to the control over the breathing activity, we reap many benefits of inhalation and exhalation at the physical and mental level. Moreover our lungs become strong.
Outward muscles are exercised. Internal organs are as much influenced as the external.
Very often, our digestive system becomes weak because the supply of blood does not reach those parts of the body due to the brisk activity in other parts. The regular blood circulation in our entire body systematized the digestive system in total.
It is only the physical body that is influenced. The astral body is influenced along with the physical. More importantly one gains control over the mind.
There is a possibility of an awkward development of the body. The all round body development in a regulated manner enhances our beauty and health. The body becomes sound and comely and face lustrous.
One does not develop any kind of seminal control. The practice of Asans results in the preservation of semen and its upward movement.
The physical exercises can never ensure a complete cure of diseases. Ailments dare not come near and longevity is a natural consequence.
Intellectual development that sublimates human life can never be possible. Yogasans are instrumental in the development of such invaluable virtues as tolerance, steadfastness, self-restraint and self-confidence.
Lack of concentration and proper judgment in practical life. Concentration and introversion reform practical life. Positive thoughts replace the negative ones.
Physical exercises causes fatigue. Asanas relieve the fatigue and make the body light and active.
Both time and our vital energy are wasted away. Lesser energy is spent in lesser time. As a result not only more benefits are reaped and vital energy is also well preserved.
Weak and old people are incapable of doing every kind of exercise. The weak and old also can perform asans with the permission of and in consultation with a specialist. Every person belonging to any age-group from the age 5 to old age can practice yogasan.
Open space and many things and gadgets are necessary. Only a little space as much as the length of a practicant is needed. There is hardly any need of any of other kind of paraphernalia.
Sport and exercises cannot be possible in journey. Yogasan can be performed even while travelling.
