Meditation is one of many good yoga exercises that sharpen your mind and calms you.
Yoga means bringing in balance. It is wrong to limit yoga to balance only in the body, to a training system that keeps the body young and smooth, and eliminates tension and stress. Yoga is much more.
Yoga is a balance at all levels:
Yoga is a science of the mind and human nature that is not based on beliefs and dogmas, but the personal experience is the only authority.
In the East, there is not the same distinction between body and mind as in the West, although we have the saying of a healthy soul in a healthy body, it is rare that this comes in practical terms. But in yoga this is taken seriously, and the physical and mental occur simultaneously in an inseparable whole.
In this whole, there are different areas of yoga:
In meditative classical yoga we are not primarily concerned with the individual exercise, but how the range of exercises forms a whole and builds up to meditative reconciliation at the end. Here the mind is completely released; You get a few minutes of spontaneous meditation that refreshes mind and body.
With the emergence of some Eastern body traditions in our part of the world, the meditative in training has been introduced as a thought. This applies in particular to yoga.
The effect of meditative yoga can be there in the daily life. It is a training form that fits all bodies throughout their lives. In addition, some yoga before meditation is a good help for better meditation. On retreat where you meditate long and a lot, meditative yoga can be a very good help and support for the inner digestive process.
