Be in the present moment by calming the mind
Do you want to live a life you do not need a vacation from? A life in which you can actually experience the present moment without having any regrets later? Then Yoga is the answer.
It will get you out of your mind and into your body. For me – someone who lived almost only in her mind for decades – it was such a revelation. I started to see the world from a whole new perspective. Basically, I started to live in the only moment that matters: the here and the now and I have felt no regret ever since.
Nice Side Effects
Of course, apart from calming your mind, the physical yoga practice offers you so much more. We all know that going to a yoga class helps us reducing stress and gives us the relaxation which we all need in our overly active lives nowadays. Besides, as a workout, it gives us strength, stamina, flexibility and improves concentration. So if you are not convinced to train your mind and become calmer than please still go for all the nice side effects as over time the actual aim will evolve by itself.
I will try to explain in words how Yoga can give you this. Of course with a big disclaimer that Yoga is actually hard to describe. It is something you should experience yourself to really understand. Nevertheless, I will give it a shot.
Nevertheless, most of the modern forms of yoga emphasize physical, mental and emotional health which of course are nice side effects, but it is not what yoga is.
Yoga – in its most simple form – is nothing more than training your mind to be in the present. It is a way of making your mind calmer and by this more clear. There are several methods for attaining this clarity of the mind. For example by mental control (Raja Yoga), by chanting as a form of devotion (Bhakti Yoga), by knowledge through studying the philosophy (Jnana Yoga) or by bodily control through physical practice (Hatha Yoga). All designed for the differentiability of people, but all with the same destination.
