I’m starting to put together a youtube page of meditation and breath work, and maybe a little easy to follow yoga asana…..
Meditation is a tool that can be used by anybody, regardless of age or physical ability. The benefits are many, it has been proven to reduce stress, improve our focus, and being calm and kind. to ourselves and others. The key to meditation is to be able to sit and focus on the breath, or another given such as a mantra (phrase) or following sensations in the body. It is not to stop thinking, but rather to focus your thoughts on one thing. Thoughts will come, and that’s OK, the objective is to bring the focus back to the breath and not let the thoughts take over.
Pranayama, or working with the breath is another way to work with the breathe consciously, with awareness, and with intention. The benefits are also to work towards calmness and release tensions and stress. By using your breath you can activate your parasympathetic nervous system, and in turn slow down your heart rate and lower your blood pressure—creating a feeling of calm.
