Good Morning Greenviters!
Another month to meet here and share some secrets about food, sport practices and healthy habits! What are we going to talk about on today’s #GreenVita blog? Stay around here and stay until the end to receive a surprise.
If you are a follower of our social networks, you know that at #Greenvita we are in love with yoga and all the branches that derive from it. Therefore, in a couple of minutes, we are going to discover everything you need to know about this healthy world.
Many of our readers practice yoga, they know it or it just sounds familiar to them, but… What is yoga?
Yoga is an increasingly used discipline to overcome mental and physical health problems that, related to stress, produces our living rhythm. In this discipline we work, through exercises, on flexibility and resistance of the muscles.
‘I have heard that yoga provides a balance between body and mind! Can we do it only with physical exercises?’
I’m glad you asked that, because right now, I’m going to talk a little more about combining yoga with other approaches such as meditation or mindfulness.
Perhaps the concept of mindfulness does not sound as familiar to you as yoga, but in a moment, we will clarify it and explain it to you.
Mindfulness or meditation are psychological techniques that consist of focusing attention on the present, on a specific activity and have always been used in yoga. (Who does not remember that of ‘focusing attention on breathing’?). Their constant practice and mastery can save us from the consumption of many medicines and, therefore, in combination with yoga, they are an explosive beneficial mix.
‘So, now is it fashionable to call meditation mindfulness?’
Well… you are ‘only’ a bit right! Meditation and mindfulness are not exactly the same. While meditation is a technique for the mind to travel to the present, observe and let everything that arises around, mindfulness goes further, being a complete lifestyle that uses meditation to deal with daily problems and control our emotions.
Well friends, that’s al for this week…
Just a moment! I almost left you without the surprise! Did you like the blog? Are you already looking for tutorials on how to combine yoga with mindfulness?
At #Greenvita we will make it much easier for you! This SUNDAY AUGUST 2, at 8 AM, we are going to have a class of this discipline and, if you like it, there will be more soon! We are waiting for you in the yoga class on Sunday!
Time to say goodbye! See you soon #Greenviters!
