Yoga for mindfulness is merely allowing yourself to take a moment to breathe and genuinely be present amidst yourself and your surroundings. Sometimes you go around your day and have so much jabber going on in your mind. You feel stressed over your work, life, and family, but you need to rest your mind from all the chatter and chaos going on around you. Take a deep breath, unwind, and dedicate some time to your well-being to achieve a state of peace. 

There never is, or was, or will be anything except the present. (Allan Watts)

Rehearsing mindfulness yoga poses will help you stay in the present moment and bring peace to your inner self. You need to let go of the negative energy taking over your head and heart and learn to bring in positive and amicable energy. Simmer down, be present, and take a deep breath and just relax. 

Yoga poses for Mindfulness.

A simple 15-20 minute self-time out whether in the morning or evening or at night will help you rebalance your mind, body, and spirit. Grab your mat, grab your water, and get on started.

Hero’s pose: 

It is incredible to stretch the thighs, highest points of feet and ankles, and extend the spine. It’s also beneficial for sitting in after the main meal to stimulate better digestion or improve your posture while relaxing your nerves.

Lateral Bend: 

Expanding the side waist and extending the intercostal muscles serves to be an incredible method to de-stress, improve digestion, and increase your breath limit. It is also well-known for increasing back strength and enhances flexibility.

Child’s pose: 

It works great for providing ease to the tightness and aches of the lower back. It also works for opening the chest, inner thighs, and groin. It benefits from relaxing your body and reducing fatigue from the stress and tension built up on your muscles. 

Sit forward fold: 

With this simple pose, you will experience meditation while further increasing the breath limit. It will help lengthen the spine and side waist and stretch the shoulders, chest, and intercostal muscles.

All these poses not only help you relax your body but also help you to know about your body and be more present in the actual moment.
