By taking a break from your daily schedule, putting out of mind everything bothering you, taking deep breaths and focusing on the flow of your inner energy, you leave room to listen to your actual needs that you may have been ignoring.
To get close to that sublime natural state of consciousness and communication with your true self, you can use various techniques: Poses (asanas), breathing (pranayama), energy locks (mudras & bandhas), cleansing techniques (kriyas), chakra (energy center) meditation techniques, mantras (sacred sounds and vibrations) and the study of sacred texts. Through specialized practices and different yoga systems, you can achieve awareness and acceptance of yourself, your priorities and needs, while also looking after your physical body.
Consistently applying yoga’s beneficial techniques, you restore energy flows to mind and body, achieve inner and outer transformation, acquire energy, self-confidence, calm and balance, bringing a different quality into your daily life on all levels.
“DO NOT KILL THE INSTINCT OF THE BODY FOR THE GLORY OF THE POSE.
DO NOT LOOK AT YOUR BODY LIKE A STRANGER,
BUT ADOPT A FRIENDLY APPROACH TOWARDS IT. WATCH IT, LISTEN TO IT,
OBSERVE ITS NEEDS, ITS REQUESTS AND EVEN HAVE FUN.
TO BE SENSITIVE IS TO BE ALIVE.”
