I get asked a lot if I can teach someone to meditate, or if we do it in our yoga/asana practice. I often hear people saying that they just don’t get it, but as time goes on it changes to “I get it now “. So what changed?

Sometimes I say to people it’s possible that they need to work on breathing properly before trying to meditate, and the looks I get..! Breath is definitely underrated, and people think you don’t need to consider it.

Learning to really breathe is hard, and if we feel our breath first, we loosen. This, along with yoga/asana practice, eventually allows us to sit and meditate.

The asana is the moving part of yoga practice, and this ultimately prepares the body to sit in meditation.

Remember meditation is still yoga; just a part of it. There’s actually lots to yoga! More for another post!
