The Big Questions you may like to know
1. Is meditation a part of yoga

Throughout the history of yoga, meditation has always been a primary part of yoga discourse.
When looking at yoga philosophy, there are 8 limbs of yoga.
The journey through the limbs is a journey towards enlightenment, or pure consciousness, Samadhi.


To reach this point requires steady focus developed through sensory withdrawal, breathing and meditation techniques.
Meditation can be approached as a stand-alone practice too. Quietly sitting, breathing, and focusing attention with mindfulness.

2. What is mindfulness

One of the greatest gifts of meditation is its ability to elicit a sense of deep peace, relaxation and awareness of the present moment.
This attention to the present is what is known as mindfulness, attention to the present, to emotions and experiences.


On a more scientific level, the focus on slow, deep, full breaths helps to activate the nervous system, healthfully slows down heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure, thereby lowering anxiety and stress.

A meditation practice only needs to be a few minutes each day to have a powerful positive effect on your life and those around you.


3. What are the benefits of yoga and meditation

Endless methinks. Both are powerful tools for wellbeing, and scientific studies have shown that including a yoga and meditation practice into our lives offers a number of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits.

A meditation practice with yoga has been proven to increase immunity, improve sleep patterns, improve pain management, lower blood pressure, increase fertility, improve digestion, lower stress and anxiety levels, and contribute to a calm and focused mental and emotional state.




4. How do I learn meditation


No matter where you are in the world today, learning is accessible to you. 

The influx of yoga studios ensures that teachers are more available than ever before.
Studios offer a range of classes for all levels of meditation, from beginner to advanced practitioners, and this supportive space is the ideal first step towards developing your own mindfulness and refining your meditation technique.


Even just five or ten minutes of meditation a day can elicit these powerful benefits. Think what a difference an actual stay on a wellness could make with all that time to practice.




You can explore and practice more through online yoga classes, meditation apps, audio recordings, live yoga lectures, and websites, where you can learn everything from mindfulness techniques to the best place to embark on a retreat.
