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.
