Yoga and Meditation: The Benefits

yoga and meditation benefitsI used to think that Yoga and Meditation were the same thing. In my twenties, I rolled my eyes at both, preferring the adrenaline pumping action of movement – any movement – to the quiet stillness of what I thought was wasted time.

    How often do you unconditionally self-love yourself every day?

    Not enough. I do meditation but I’m starting slowly–with 5 minutes. I’m scared that I’ll run into the “wall” of self-hatred that I’ve found myself running into before on longer meditations.

    Meditation and yoga are great ways to quiet the mind and improve focus. It’s important to note that miscommunication between the two sides of the brain can manifest itself as Autism, ADHD, or other neuro-behavioral symptoms. Early recognition and intervention can do so much for children to improve their outcome. I’ve been reading what the Brain Balance website has to say about improving rhythm and timing through learning and exercise techniques… it’s good info from a hopeful perspective and is worth a read.

    One of the stages in Patanjali’s classical yoga, is indeed meditation, the 7th out of 8 total limbs. The rest of the practice serves to prepare you for meditation.

    This sounds exactly like my story with Yoga!
    I always found it boring, I tried it in my twenties and was always left feeling like I wanted to go and do one of my kick boxing classes….
    I guess I was just looking for something else.
    Now…I love it and my daily 45 minute practice is the part of the day I enjoy the most. I feel more centres, relaxed I feel flexible and stretched all day I cannot speak enough about the benefits of yoga for mind and body.
    I am in love with Yoga!
    Thanks for the great article!
