If you had to take a moment and look at some of the yoga poses, you might think “but I could meditate while in that pose” and you would be correct. There are many yoga poses which are perfectly suitable for your meditation yoga practice, and slowly people are realizing that they can successfully combine their meditation and their yoga practice into a meditation yoga practice.
There are also a variety of yoga poses which focus on stretching the muscles and focusing your mind, these are great to use for your meditation yoga before you sit down so that your muscles are relaxed, which will ensure that you do not cause any unnecessary injury to body.
If you have never done any yoga before you should find a yoga class in your area, go to a few lessons and learn how to listen to your body and how you can adjust the poses to help you as an individual, once you have attended the yoga classes and feel that your body is less rigid you can start practicing the yoga poses at home and combining them with your meditation practice.
Remember that the aim of meditation yoga is not to cause injury to yourself, but to get closer to yourself, to get a deeper understanding of your own mind and body, this is a journey of enlightenment, it is not a quick fix or a simple hobby that will take an hour a day and miracles will happen, it is something that you will work on for each specified time that you dedicate to your meditation yoga practice, allowing yourself to enjoy your meditation yoga poses and learning about yourself, although your goals might be to change your negative mind sets or to experience deeper levels of understanding and compassion, these results will only start to be evident after you have diligently practiced your meditation yoga poses and meditation yoga.
You can also do this all by yourself in the comfort and security of your own home as there are many different websites with full instructions on what to do for each meditation yoga pose, although we do advise that group classes for your meditation yoga poses and the yoga exercises that are best before you start with your meditation will be more inspiring than doing everything alone at home.
Enjoy your journey and the additional benefits of adding your meditation yoga poses to your practice!
