To do yoga is to train your free mental attitude by working with breath, bodily movement and bodily awareness. The breathing is the most vital part of the emotional expressions of your body. A free-flowing breathing during your yoga movements is like applying a free mental attitude to the repetition of your meditation sound in Acem Meditation. You teach yourself not to be forced by inner "achievement ghosts", not to strive where you need not strive.
Yoga is a way of exploring and training your human attitudes and your compassion, through a direct encounter with the way you treat your own body.
Yoga is about becoming more flexible, lighter and happier. It provides you with relaxation and deepening similar to a meditation practice. You come closer to yourself, and your body, mind and strengths are coming more in harmony with each other.
We recommend you buy and bring the book Meditative Yoga - integrating body, breath and mind - or you can buy it on the course.
