Have you been wanting to incorporate meditation into your yoga practice however, are unsure of where to begin? The beauty is, within your practice the tools are already there. As you begin your journey, study, practice, it will become easier.
We have discussed this before but, being present is key. Often times the difficulty in clearing your mind and stepping back, is that the mind will not stop going. Practicing yoga prior to your meditation can aid in this. I find no matter how anxious I am, if I flow first, I can calm my mind. Slowly, I begin to move through my flow without thought, simply going with what feels right for my body.
When my body is content and my mind has quieted down, I am ready for my mantra. Perhaps this is just me however, after my practice I feel euphoric. This is what makes it so easy for me to move into my meditation.
I encourage you to give it a try. Even if you feel you cannot stand it because your mind is racing, challenge yourself to 5 minutes of yoga. See if this does not help you move into your meditation easier. You are already there, presence is key.
What are some of your favorites ways to move into your meditation? Yes, waking up is a great opportunity however, what about after you have been effected by the day.
This is actually a pretty intimate shot I wanted to share. As you all know, I love to practice with Coco for numerous reason. When I finished meditated, this is what I opened my eyes to. Perhaps she is the other reason I am able to clear my mind. She is amazing, and I will just leave it there.
Namaste amazing people 🙂
