MINDFULNESS Being Aware

Keshav Mohta, Meditation guide suggests some key asanas to help you on your path to mental wellness.

Mindfulness is all about being fully present and aware in the present moment. Seeing it for what it is, without being overwhelmed or reacting strongly to anything. It also attempts to make you aware of the internal processes of your body and mind.

The effects of mindfulness can be multifold - relaxed physical and mental states, being more present, increase in concentration, ability to sense and manage emotions better, a deeper understanding and hence better management of situations which cause pain and suffering.

The Practice of Mindfulness

The asana is an important tool for mindfulness. Mental and emotional patterns are stored physically in the body in the form of sensation. The body is used as a tool to focus the mind via the breath. The asana is used to investigate different pockets of the body, and to release unhealthy patterns through the breath. As concentration deepens, it is possible for the breath to clear mental and emotional blockages from regions in the body.

Mohta suggests that you try to do a routine, which begins with Suraya Namaskar followed by any of the asanas relevant to you, one breathing exercise and end with yoga nidra. However, any of these can be used as a stand-alone also.
