Did you know that you can engage in a yoga posture and a meditative state in almost any situation; while taking a meeting, shopping, working out, or socializing?
Here, we define a yoga posture as any position that enables deeper awareness, embodiment, and connection.
This practice needs no yoga props or special conditions. It only takes a decision to perform, and a skill, which can be learned and cultivated.
In today’s world, the majority of people are stuck in states of contraction (tension) caused by stress, strain, overthinking and overwhelm.
Unchecked contracted states eventuate in illness.
Contraction diminishes your life-force by cutting you off from parts of yourself.
- Physical contraction cuts one part of the body off from another.
- Psychological contraction cuts off self-awareness which creates anxiety.
- Emotional contraction cuts off feeling and connection with others.
- Spiritual contraction cuts you off from cosmic energies, which causes alienation.
Your feeling states, contracted or relaxed, also create a powerful impression which others can sense, for better or for worse.
