Meditation Yoga Postures

Meditation Yoga Asana/Postures

Many people speak of asana practice as just being a way to prepare the body so you can sit comfortably in meditation. There are particular postures practiced for different types of meditation, or by different people depending on their preference/setting/religion.

These postures all aim to bring balance, and hold the body comfortably with good posture. They may not all be accessible straight away but when you have sufficient flexibility they will become comfortable and calming. These postures can be practiced in sequences or on their own for individual benefits.
