is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind" Patanjali.
In the western part of the world, it can seem that yoga has become all about physical
fitness, but the physical (asanas) is only a small part of yoga. Yoga meaning union, connecting mind body and spirit, and also self-compassion, and compassion towards all living beings, including the whole world. The physical yoga (asanas) were invented
to prepare the body for longer periods in seated meditation. Yoga arose in India many thousand years ago and started to grow in popularity in the western world around the sixties/seventies. These days, yoga is everywhere in
all shapes and forms, and has become immensely popular throughout the world.
Yoga with Vibeke: (MyMindfulTime)
I want you to enjoy yoga without thinking about having to achieve any particular goal (unless that is very important to you), or forcing yourself into yogaposes that doesn`t feel right for your body. Do yoga
with ease and don`t take it so seriously. The most important thing, is to go with the flow of your own body. Always be mindful when practicing yoga, It is important to have self-compassion and to give yourself time to get to know yoga and
the way your own body wants to do yoga, this is one of the beneficial things about yoga-online videos, you can pause the video whenever you need to have a break, or if you missed something the yogainstructor was saying, just rewind and
do the exercise again, in your own tempo. It is a good idea to watch and do one particular video again and again. I recommend doing a flow-video and then a seated meditation-video afterwards for full holistic effect. In some videos there will be a mix
of flow and meditation.
Personally i love flow and movement, with allowance
and space for discovering my own creativity and freedom in the poses and in the moves, not being restricted to "only one way of doing yoga" because all bodies are different and unique. I hope and wish to offer you a space where you can
discover your own creativity and freedom in your practice.
