Yoga that Actually Does Lead to Meditation

candle-royaltyfree_pixabayIf you’ve been reading my blog, you know that my practice centers around doing yoga in a way that really does lead toward meditation.

How many times have you heard that old truism that the purpose of yoga is to prepare the yogi for meditation? Many times, right? And how many times have you been in a yoga class that actually incorporated more than maybe 3 minutes of seated meditation? Not too often, I’m guessing.

I’m not saying that’s necessarily wrong, although as someone who is dedicated to both forms, it does feel like a bit of a disconnect. If you’re like me, you may be wondering how you can integrate meditation into your yoga practice, or vice versa.

I’ve got some tips for you in a recent article I wrote for elephantjournal.com called “3 Ways Yoga Can Help Us Sit More Consistently.” Click the link to read the rest, and enjoy!
