Yoga Meditation And Stress?
Stress is something that is grasping more people today than it has ever done in mans history. It seems like as we move forward, and technology moves forward, that we have to work and move faster which ultimately causes stress. Can an ancient practice called yoga and yoga meditation be the cure and reliever that so many people need today?
It is quite strange how the two can mix. How can today’s people do yoga, most people would say, however, more and more people don’t hold such a view. Our views are changing and it is perhaps the most important change happening in the west and globally.
For the last few centuries, the field of science and medication is focused primarily on the physical and forget other aspects of us. For example, a doctor heals problems physically. He provides tablets to fix this, that and the other, but never looks at causes. Instead the doctor focuses on the effects.
This view has been held by the public also. And most people will look at holistic healing methods with a sense of none belief at its validity. In fact most methods are methods which doctors and scientists can measure. Instead they will measure the effects again. Even though this is the case, many studies have confirmed the benefits of yoga, and yoga meditation at creating stress relief.
Yoga, and other practices put there thought on holistic methods of healing; that is looking at the whole person rather than simply there body. This includes mind, body, and soul. And here is where science has for so long neglected.
Whereas simply meditating primarily works with the mind aspect, and bringing balance in your mind, it also creates balance in your body. It synergizes you with all your aspects, and allows peace of mind.
Doing meditation, whether that is yoga meditation or any other form of meditation does indeed produce effects on the body. For example relaxing, taking deep breaths and meditating makes your muscles relax. Yoga meditation allows blood to flow freely in the brain, which makes more of a relaxed body.
Here now, we have balance, and when all 3 aspects of you become more balanced, more peace of mind follows. We take the world with delight, and the things that seemed to cause aggravation and stress before, can now dissolve and seem easier to accomplish.
Yoga meditation is not the only way to create this peace of mind and balance. For example Yoga also looks at your diet, and also the well known of Yoga – the gymnastic style exercises. Even though they may seem complicated, there are many postures that are easy to perform, and will give your mind, body, and soul that balance it needs.
Stress can be a big burden. Yoga is simply one way to create peace of mind and relaxation. Some links that you can visit, and can help you are:

Synchronizing yoga sound meditation with breathing helps focus the mind. Do complete yoga breathing if possible, filling your lungs from the bottom to the top. Inhale first to your abdomen, letting it expand; then bring the breath to your middle and then your upper lungs to complete the inhalation. As you exhale, release the air from your upper lungs first, then your middle, and finally your lower lungs, contracting your abdomen slightly as you complete your exhalation. You’ll find the slow, deep breaths very relaxing. I will show you how to do this now.
