Meditation

Meditation – A Good Idea To Incorporate Into Your Daily Life:

Meditation is an inherent part of yoga practice, as a matter of fact, the purpose of doing asana’s (Yoga Postures)  is to settle the body and focus the mind in planning for meditation.

Many people feel like you have to be an accomplished yogi or Buddhist Master in order to even practice meditation effectively, but you do not – You can meditate while walking, while sitting in any chair, doing chores around the house or pretty much anywhere you want to as long as you want to!

To Meditate is to Clear the Mind and Focus on YourThird Eye” (the point between your eyes) and let go of all emotions.
