find presence within your body
T.K.V Desikichar describes concentration (dharana) as the "mind moving in one direction like a quiet river-- nothing else is happening." I find this is to be the the true result of of my mediation practice; not necessarily during the process but after, as I go about my day and watch my boys play, fight and argue, as I wash dishes, as I listen to my clients.
My approach to mediation is simple and applicable: I believe in short meditative breaks that focus one’s attention on a single object. Breath based focus practice is highly effective and popular among my clients, and they start off with 3-5 minutes per day. These breaks are cleansing for our mind and nourishing for our body and deeper facilities .
Like yoga positions, mediation techniques can also be modified to one’s physical and physiological needs to produce the best results in yoga therapy. I integrate meditation into all of my offerings, as the mind often rules (and sometimes not in the direction that is healthy)!
