When I started practicing different yoga postures, I was not expecting to like it at all. I thought it would be some tough workout that I would have to put up with in order to be let in the front door of the “yoga house.” As it turns out, I really like it. Some of the asanas have changed but not my opinion of it.
And that is exactly what I am going to share with you today. The few things that I have taken away from my yoga training. Things that I feel changed my opinion and my practice. So before discussing different yoga postures let’s go through these in order.
Number 1: POSITION
Don’t worry about your position. You are doing a difficult (yet relaxing) workout that will create a balance between the body and the mind. Your position is actually not important.
Your “mind’s eye” is what it needs to feel relaxed. This is a key point in my opinion and the place where a lot of people lose focus. I found that the mind’s eye was more important than the chosen position.
Number 2: COMFORT
Be comfortable when doing different yoga postures. I know it may seem cliche’ but this was something I was amazed by. I went to multiple classes and didn’t feel out of place.
In fact, I felt very confident and in control of my practice. The way the positions were designed to make you feel was a key factor for me. In fact, I just feel more contented when I am in an uncomfortable position.
Don’t worry about your position. You are doing a difficult workout that will create a balance between the body and the mind.
You are not supposed to have an intense focus on the position as your mind’s eye will be more important than your position. Your position is actually not important. Your position is actually more important than your position.
Number 3: ATTIRE
It doesn’t matter what you wear. You can wear what you feel like. I was impressed with this one. It is more important than what you think of. It doesn’t matter what you put on.
Have comfortable clothes that you feel comfortable in. I made the choice to wear a thong which I felt funny in the first class but I felt fine in the rest of the classes. I think a thong is fine but maybe it’s just me. I have found that I feel fine in yoga pants and loose-fitting tee shirts.
I don’t feel good in leotards or spandex. I didn’t feel good in the hi-tops and tank tops. I don’t feel good in tight clothing.
Number 4: MIND CONTROL
Don’t take the focus off of your body while performing different yoga postures. Use your mind’s eye to get you in and out of the positions. Your body is there for the challenge, for exploration, for fun. Your mind’s eye is there to be fascinated and to take you to new places. Use it to take you to new places. Don’t push the boundaries of your mind’s eye to look away.
Number 5: HANDLING STRESS
For the positions, try to go into them with the least amount of stress. If you go in with a lot of tension it is more important what your body feels like and what you think about in the position rather than the challenge your mind’s eye gives you.
I find that the easiest way for me to enter a position is to just really relax and lie down with my back in the ground and my feet resting on the floor. I stay in that position for a few moments. And then I just do the position. Don’t get drawn into trying to change the position. Just do the position.
There are different ways to enter a position. You could do it sitting down, standing down, kneeling down, etc. And then get into the position after you have made sure you are in the right position.
For the techniques, there are different approaches. Just start doing the positions and relax. You will get the stretch, the relaxation, and the fun out of the asanas. And you will get the challenge out of doing the positions in the right way before you even get started.
Relax all the muscles. Just relax. Relax when you start getting into the position. Don’t worry about trying to get in the position faster. Just relax and get into the position.
And make sure you go in and out of the position a few times just to be sure you are not going to be off-balance. And then you are going to be relaxed during the game.
