What is meditation and how to do it? Oftentimes just the word "meditation" is intimidating. We have images of either ascetic and skinny Indian men sitting motionless in a cave or we have beatific images of a rotund Buddha sitting contentedly under a tree.
For me, as I travel my own yoga journey, meditation has come to mean true mindfullness in every moment. That moment can be during a sunset dance meditation on the beach, or a quiet moment with my horse.
Being aware of each breath I take and being sensitive to my own emotions for me defines a large part of my yoga practice. Meditation is part of the practice and the goal of the practice.
There is no sudden arrival at your Yoga, or Union. You experience it every day. As BKS Iyengar said, yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory, do it and all will come.
