Even during isolation, the pace of life continues at a rapid speed and intensity, without the opportunity for downtime in the form of catching up with family and friends, sports, movies and other social events. To help manage change and expectation, the wonderful practice of yoga provides self-care, as well as building strength, flexibility and many other health benefits. It is not about turning yourself into a pretzel but moving consciously and carefully to gain the many mind-body benefits on offer.
Egg of the Universe (a long time favourite of mine) have generously provided a few short videos to give you the chance to finally give yourself a chance to practice both meditation and yoga. Not sure what this is all about, check out the introduction video from EOTU or a ‘how to’ chaturanga to get you started.
Meditation comes from the Latin word ‘meditatum’ which means ‘to ponder’ and has a long history of practice dating back to 5,000-3,500 BC (BC ≠ Before COVID) to reduce stress and provide relaxation.
