A number of people practice yoga in order to achieve harmony and balance, and perhaps relax for even just a few moments in their busy lives. But aside from going to classes, following the instructors’ advices, and doing all the positions, is there a way to make our yoga practice more successful and meaningful?
No matter which kind of yoga you prefer and practice, it is quite normal that you would want to be sure that your training is both strengthening and regenerative. It is easy to get stuck in a comfortable and easy practice, but doing so is missing the true potential of yoga, which is to grant you a half-hour or more of serenity.
Alternatively, if your yoga practice is too boring or challenging, you will not make time for it. To better take advantage of your allotted time for meditation, it may be helpful to comprehend what “spiritual muscles” you are reinforcing as you practice.
A worthwhile meditation practice develops three basic skills. Although these may not be clearly emphasized in classes and a number of teachers do not acknowledge these, you can assimilate these in your own personal practice. Doing so may well be worth your time and effort, and make your meditation practice more productive and successful.
There are two kinds of meditation you can choose from. You will be able to practice both or either of these because each achieve related goals.
