Everyday, we are burdened with old and new concerns, responsibilities. Our worries affect our moods, and invariably have an effect on the people we interact with. When we practise yoga, we draw our minds to the present moment. We hold the asanas (poses) by focusing on body parts that we are activating and channeling our attention to dristhis( gazing points), at the same time, observing slow, deep and regulated breaths (pranayama). These bring a deep sense of calmness and clarity to our minds. As we weave in and out of asanas, we synchronise our breaths with our movements, developing a meditative state of mind. As we assimilate into our yoga practices, we experience the tranquil and therapeutic effects of yoga. When was the last time you felt such a sense of serenity after your yoga session?
