Top foods to help fight depression

Your choice of food could be a better option than popping anti-depressants. Not just alternative therapists, but enlightened medical practitioners too appreciate the huge connection between your mind and the food you eat. Thoughts are neurochemicals. They are manufactured in the body, supported by several factors that are biologically intertwined. Our lifestyle, our cultural background, our orientation towards healthy living, and even our self-esteem have much to do with our food choices. Those ...

Get fit without going to the gym: 5 alternatives to get in shape

Working out with machines has become very popular. Gym ‘packages’ are cheaper than club memberships (for special games), coaches, or training for games or other forms of training. Some gyms are open 24x7, or are open for longer hours than grounds for sports or other kinds of physical activity. You can even buy your favourite work-out machine and do it in your own space and time. So, while the advantages of working out with machines are many, Shameem Akthar, yogacharya trained with ...

B K S Iyengar: The tapasvi's amazing yoga

'His personal turmoils on the yoga journey, instead of deterring him, propelled him on with even greater passion towards yoga and make what he has offered to the world rather special. In fact, not many teachers have done what he has done to yoga practice -- emboldened it, brought it out of its timid closet where it was and (is often even today) confined.' Yogacharya Shameem Akthar is awed by the guru's unparalleled intuitive knowledge of yoga. When yoga was still a blip in my life's radar and ...

Beware: These popular workouts can actually hurt you

Watch out for injuries when using these machines/workouts. The enthusiasm for working out is a good thing. But the downside is that unsupervised workouts are rather haphazard. It’s not just a matter of buying equipment and following the pamphlet that comes with it. Or attending a short gym session and believing it is okay to do that on your own. Many offices are now equipped with gyms. Many housing societies also have their own gyms. This means there is plenty of opportunity to work out ...

Are you making these post-workout mistakes?

These mistakes can actually prevent weight loss. In an era of self-prescription, fitness mantras are the ones most commonly passed around. Some of these can be misleading, passed on by fly-by-night “fitness experts” who have obtained certificates dished out indiscriminately to those looking to make a career in this field. Even well-established names in the fitness field succumb to this temptation of churning out “experts” in a field where learning can never really stop, ...

How your body clock affects your health

...And how you can reset it! Shameem Akthar, yogacharya trained with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, takes you through some major bio-events in your daily life pattern that may help you lead a more controlled and powerful life. There are several sciences that have borrowed from the idea of the bio-rhythm. Chronobiology, for instance, is a new alternative therapy which gives you a chart individualised and based on your birthday, and uses the idea of 23-day/28-day/33-day cycle. This is still ...

Are you guilty of these pre-workout mistakes?

There is a lot of enthusiasm for 'working out' and 'building tone', but there is an equal lack of awareness of the mistakes that can sabotage one's efforts, says yogacharya Shameem Akthar. Different work-outs require different preparations in terms of energy/fuel consumption and warm-ups. There are so many workouts possible, that one experiments with different types without fully understanding the basics.  If you are learning online, the instructor could have omitted some key aspects ...
