Meditation Can Change Your Brain | KarmaTube

How can a yoga posture or time spent watching your breath change the way you feel? Our brains are plastic, and engaging in a behavior over and over again leads to changes in our brains. Neuroscientist Sara Lazar shows us, through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brains of study participants, that yoga and meditation are effective in reducing stress, reducing symptoms of diseases such as depression, insomnia and anxiety disorders, and, interestingly, increasing quality of life – people report that they are happier.

DOING YOGA SAFELY

Yoga-Quotes101

 

Go slowly – respect your body’s limits and listen to its innate wisdom. The more you do Yoga, the more you’ll have access to that intuitive sense of what is good for YOU and what isn’t.

Do your practice with awareness – Much of this is common sense…if something hurts, don’t do it! If a pose becomes uncomfortable, come out of it.

A big part of keeping yourself safe with Yoga is tuning in to how you feel both during and after practice.

Don’t try too hard – Students often push to achieve the outward form of a pose – trying to emulate their teacher or a photo from a magazine – even when their body and breath are telling them they aren’t ready yet. This is not a balanced action, not tuning in.

Staying safe in class – Whilst nobody wants to feel like he/she can’t do what everybody else is doing, Yoga is about tuning into your inner landscape, and not worrying what others will think.

Your Yoga is all about you – It is a personal journey, so be present and relaxed with yourself and avoid comparing yourself to others in the room
