Fit in Mind and Body

Are you in good health physically and mentally? Or do you feel the effects of stress and unhappiness in your life? Read more about how yoga can guide you to better health and a better way of living. Mike Rogers reports:

A - Hatha yoga

Yoga is a very old tradition of maintaining and restoring physical and mental health and leads to happiness and peace of mind. There are many different kinds of yoga, but they all work to develop techniques for relaxing the mind and body. The most popular form of yoga in the Western world is Hatha yoga. Hatha yoga has a long history and concentrates on body postures or positions, that allow the muscles to stretch and relax. It also focuses on controlling breathing so that the body and mind grow calm. Although it is a very gentle activity, Hatha yoga is actually an ideal form of exercise, especially for people who do not like to work out with weights and machines. A regular program of Hatha yoga is the perfect way to stay in shape, put your mind and body at ease and get rid of the day's stress.

B - Astanga yoga

Astanga yoga is similar to Hatha yoga except that it is more energetic. Astanga yoga uses the body positions and breathing exercises of Hatha yoga and adds greater motion and movement to it. Astanga yoga classes are more like aerobics classes with a lot of movement and physical energy. The goal, of course, is always the same - to improve health through careful exercise and concentration. People who participate in this kind of yoga generally want a more thorough workout than Hatha yoga gives them. This kind of yoga often attracts younger people who have lots of energy and want to exercise as well as find a little peace of mind at the same time.

C - Mantra yoga

Now, this is serious yoga and not for the very active types. Mantra yoga focuses on mental concentration, Participants sit in a yoga posture and focus their minds on one peaceful idea or image. Then they repeat a single word. This is called their ‘mantra’. The most typical mantra sound in yoga is ‘om’. People repeat this word over and over again as a way of clearing their minds. The goal of Mantra yoga is to find inner strength through control of the body and relaxation of the mind. Mantra yoga is an excellent choice for people who want to avoid too much physical activity but are searching for better mental health. If you're looking for lots of activity, this is probably not the yoga for you.

Read the passage and answer the questions.

Last weekend, the seventh grade went to New York City and watched The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. It was our school's first-ever trip to Broadway and was a really fun time.

The music was very well done. The actors were talented singers and very good dancers. The set itself was artistic and amazing. Being at a Broadway musical was a very unique experience. We had really good seats in the theater, so we could see everything perfectly. Plus, our seats were really comfortable.

After the musical was over, we went to eat pizza. New York pizza is very famous and it was delicious. At the restaurant, we had to wait a long time to sit down and eat. While we were waiting, we went outside of Central Park. There was a group of acrobats putting on a show for everyone to watch. They jumped and flipped so high and fast. It was almost as impressive as watching The Phantom of the Opera.

After we had pizza, we went to our hotel and had an awesome night together as a class. We played games in the hotel's recreation room. It was so much fun going to New York, and we are sad that our trip had to end. Next year, the sixth-graders will be going to New York to see a Broadway show. We hope they get to see The Phantom of the Opera, but we are sure any show they watch will be great.
