In the modern world is all too easy to become worried about all kinds of things. Technology has brought us closer together; yet, at the same time, has brought new stresses. Coupled this, with the normal worries of work and family, and we get recipe for disaster. That is why is important to consider the yoga practice as space where one leaves behind all those things, and for at least one hour one should simply relax and experience the moment.
A yoga practice should be the moment of the day when a person can switch off their mind, and just be. No expectations, no questions, no worries. Simply let go of it all; it requires no effort, and no action. In the same way as turbulent waters cannot be made calm by splashing more water; one cannot ease the mind without letting go.
This will allow the mind to take a breather, and as result one becomes more centered and relaxed. Remember, a person who talks all the time cannot hear what others have to say. Likewise, a mind that is constantly worrying cannot hear what the spirit has to say. Thereby, the importance of trying to let go; even if it is for just one hour.
At first this may be difficult, but with practice it quickly becomes a habit.; thus, making every class a moment to unwind. Also, one will obtain new insights on the body and soul, because the mind will no longer focus its attention on the same old stress. This is one of the core principles of our classes at Yoga Retreats Malaga. Providing a strong foundation to all participants so that they may continue with their yoga once they get back home.
To worry is to be alive. It is just a part of life. However, this doesn’t mean there is nothing we can do about it. To take a moment and simply be; therein lies the answer. Even if it is for just an hour; the results are effective and insightful. So why not try it? The more you do it the easier it becomes.
