Mental State

Dernière mise à jour : 20 mars 2020

"According to Maharishi Patanjali, asanas should be performed with the mind free from desire, anxiety, anger, or fear. Practicing asanas when the mind is unstable, worried, anxious, or upset may ca use injury or even more agitation. For a fruitful practice, you should train your mind to let go of any emotions and thoughts as you step onto your mat. Bring the awareness to your body and breath and postpone any thoughts to after your practice. By the end of the practice some of the negative emotions might have lifted already. You might have a new perspective on the same situation, without having spent your mental energy worrying or bickering. Keeping your mind set tightly on the goal of the practice will help to keep your mind stable. Important, however, is that the goal should be free from competition, approval, or display."

This is a quote from "Are you practicing effectively" by Ram Jain & Kalyani Hauswirth-Jain. A wonderful book about principles for a proper hatha yoga practice. It's written in a knowledgeable and easy to understand way, suitable for practitioners and teachers. The authors are Founding director and Creative director of Arhanta Yoga Ashrams, where under their management over 3000 yoga teachers have been trained from all over the world.


Enjoy and free the mind !
