"History of Yog"
PVAF is sharing today this knowledge sharing news which is summarized
above because the word "yoga" in western civilization has been adopted
from the original
sNskRUt language word "yog"
occurring in the corpus of sNskRUt language texts of life-creation
sciences called vED....
"yog" in vED is a spiritual and physical concept of
relationship between one's Creator and oneself in human form...whereas
in western civilization the adopted word "yoga" means everything
physical in human existence....but a lot of "yoga" concepts are based on
the vEDik "yog"
fundamentals of physical creation, sustenance and existence of the
entire diversity of human beings....the diversity of race, tribe, colour,
nationality and belief systems....
This in reality it proves vED is eternal even if it exists in
partial and/or modified understanding of any belief systems among the
diversified humanity that exists today.....And as always vED is
eternally available for all human beings for living life-travels for
continual progressive prosperity, well-being and welfare without
breaking the rules of regulations of
is the basic algorithm
for design-sustenance-recreation of all creations for a peaceful and
of every form of life....

sharing of the current diversity of lifestyles compared to vEDik
lifestyles...which lived today will empower the humans to have a happier
lifestyle than non-vEDik lifestyle....

Yoga for children is taking off in studios, hospitals and schools across
the country, as parents look for new activities that can help motor
skills development and even behavioral problems.
Yoga isn't just good exercise for adults. A growing number of schools,
hospitals and studios say it can also be a boon to kids, helping them
relax and focus, and improve their flexibility.
A 2003 study by California State University, Los Angeles found that yoga
improved students' behavior, physical health and academic performance,
as well as attitudes toward themselves. That same year, Leipzig
University reported that yoga reduces feelings of helplessness and
aggression, and in the long term helps emotional balance. The benefits
of yoga are particularly strong among children with special needs,
'A Different Language'
Now thousands of schools across the country—as well as yoga studios and
hospitals—are adding programs that teach children to do the exercises.
Breathe Deeply: Yoga class at
Paul Ecke Central Elementary School in Encinitas, Calif.
In January, Paul Ecke Central Elementary School in Southern California
added yoga to its curriculum for 650 students at $20,000 a year.
Principal Adriana Chavarin says she has seen how calm and centered
students are after practicing the techniques. At a recent assembly,
students were getting restless as they sat on the floor. Then a few
sixth graders spontaneously led the rest in yoga poses and breathing
"Every kid in the audience quieted down," says David Miyashiro, the
district superintendent. "It's a different language they all speak now."
Before statewide testing in May, Paul Ecke's teachers plan to lead
students in yoga to help them concentrate and stay calm. Mr. Miyashiro,
meanwhile, is working to expand the program to the entire Encinitas
Union School District.
Nearby, the San Diego Center for Children received more than $1.3
million from California's Mental Health Services Act Innovation grant in
February to start a wellness program, which includes yoga.
psychiatric unit at the Children's Hospital of Colorado uses yoga with
children ages four to 20 who suffer from issues such as mood disorders,
eating disorders or autism, says Michelle Fury, the hospital's yoga
Getting kids to stretch and bend often takes a bit of creativity. Donna
Freeman, a yoga instructor in St. Albert, Canada, builds classes around
With a beach theme, for instance, she'll tell a simple story by
going through a variety of poses that suggest seaside scenery or
activities, such as a tree pose to suggest looking at palms, then boat
and fish poses to represent being out on the water.
During the Chinese
New Year, she taught a class around animals in the zodiac, such as the
rabbit or snake.
Yoga "helps to improve self management," Ms. Freeman says. "Children
learn where their body ends and where it begins."
Still, not all parents are on board with the practice. In some cases,
parents have raised religious objections to yoga, saying that it's a
form of worship that conflicts with their beliefs. So, some instructors
avoid certain phrases and exercise positions that have spiritual
connotations. Or they substitute others: At Chabad schools in New York,
for instance, children say "shalom" instead of the traditional "om."
Some doctors, meanwhile, agree that yoga for kids can be beneficial—but
they say it's not as revolutionary as its boosters argue. Kathi Kemper,
a professor at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the Wake Forest
University School of Medicine, says children's yoga helps with
cardiovascular fitness and cognitive development. But she says you can
get the same benefits from other common exercises, such as ballet or
weight lifting, by focusing on your breathing while you're working out
and setting aside time to breathe deeply and relax afterward.
Yoga "might be helpful for people to manage emotions and thoughts," Dr.
Kemper says. But "people can exaggerate the benefits of just about
