Each breathing exercise, yoga set and meditation technique below is a link to the article with all the details you need.
Health & Wellness Yoga Meditation Program: Each day do the following…
Section 1: Breathing Exercises Section (Pranayama): Total time 1-5 Minutes
- Kapalbhati Yoga Breathing Exercise for Optimum Health & Healing: Start with Kapalbhati Yoga Pranayama, which is one of the best pranayamas for health and healing. Start with 1 minute and work up to 5 minutes. Take rest between rounds as required.
Section 2: Yoga Section: Total time 15-30 minutes
- Fountain of Youth Yoga Set: This set is comprised of all the best hatha and kundalini yoga exercises to promote health, wellness and longevity. Making the exercises in this set a part of your daily yoga practice will go a long way in helping you live a long life. Start with the minimum times for each exercise and build up from there.
Section 3: Meditation Section: Total time 10-25 minutes. Ok so this section is not just meditation, but contains one more key yoga pranayama as well :-D.
- Chakra Balancing Breathing Exercise (Anuloma Viloma Pranayama): Anuloma Viloma pranayama (or Alternate Nostril Breathing) is excellent for preparing your mind for meditation. It will calm the thought waves and make it easier for the stillness to emerge. Start with 1-2 minutes and work up to 5 minutes.
- Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen): Perhaps the best meditation one can do for building the Witnessing Consciousness, as well creating the ideal state for self healing to take place. Start with 5 minutes and build up to 20 minutes.
Health & Wellness Yoga Meditation Program Guidelines:
Following are the guidelines which I suggest to follow…
- Please post all comments, questions and feedback in the comments section of this post. This way all will benefit from the discussion. Feel free to ask questions or discuss issues, as that is one of the main reasons for this particular class format. Of course, you are free to email me as well if you would like the discussion to not be public.
- If you like, you can indicate with a comment that you have completed your daily session. Could be as short as "did it", or of course could be questions, issues or more detailed feedback. The hardest part with a daily yoga and meditation practice is establishing consistency and regularity and I think having to acknowledge that you completed your daily sadhana (spiritual work) will help in facilitating that. In addition, your comments would inspire others as well.
- I will post all information regarding the class in the comments section below as well, so please check periodically for updates.
- Before starting your daily yoga and meditation session, take a moment and tune in to your higher self for guidance and protection. At the end of every session, visualize yourself and the world as you would like it to be.
- Do the best you can and modify the class as you require. It is more important to do something, than be overwhelmed and not do anything at all.
- I wish you all a wonderful learning and transforming experience and of course a Killer Body by the end of the program :-).
