Dhayan (Meditation)

Yoga is a journey toward self-awareness. On this journey relaxation skills help us gather the disparate energy of the body and the mind and focus them internally. Then mental distraction intrude with less intensity and a sense of inner flexibility and calmness develops. Relaxation also prepares the personality for a still more interior practice. Through meditation we can safely enter the quiet and inward place of the mind & heart.

Yoga relaxation exercises quite the sense and lead us beneath the restless surface of the mind. Through relaxation we restore a sense of inner harmony.
