Success with Yoga and Meditation

yoga meditationI found success with yoga and meditation.  The health benefits have been clear to me for a long time. The implementation into my life has been difficult for me.  One morning I woke up and did the Sun Salutation.  Success came from there.

Finding time for yoga and meditation in my life has been a challenge for me.  I find it difficult to have uninterrupted time for these two activities that need lots of focus.  I usually wake up earlier than everyone else, so I do yoga and then meditate before anyone else is awake.  It helps me focus more on what I can do during that day not mulling over my problems.  The same is true for bedtime.  To keep myself from rehashing the days events, I do the Moon Salutation and then meditate until I fall asleep.

I’ve started adding a morning yoga sequence and one to promote sleep at night.  In the future I plan to add a yoga sequence to correspond to my exercise routine.   I’m looking for yoga sequences that target the upper body, core and lower body.  For now, I’m happily enjoying the benefits of my current routine and looking forward to the future.

It calms the mind.

I miss it.

Its been too long.

I must find it again.

It saves me.

Yoga Morning and Night

I truly want to start doing yoga when I wake up and before I go to bed. I want to reap all the benefits yoga has to offer.  I want a simple, easy to follow, beginners routine.  I love how these two sequences are illustrated using an imperfect body shape.

Meditation gives me the ability to see and cherish what I already have.

My treasure is worth more.
