Mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening right now. It is about the awareness and the non-judgmental acceptance of ‘What Is’. Simply put, being mindful is all about being present in that very moment without separating them as being good or bad, it is just being aware of any feeling or emotion that you’re going through in that very moment and accepting it as is, without judgment or reaction. Yoga is a practice, a philosophy that helps you understand the world and your place in it. Yes, yoga is a physical practice and consistency develops your stamina, strength, and core. But yoga is also a mental practice where you work through your emotional distress and psychological challenges. To help you understand the practice better, TRM Master Nishtha Bijlani guides you toward a journey of well-being and mindfulness encompassing the idea that yoga and mindfulness are not an exercise but a way of life.
Deeply rooted in spirituality, many postures of yoga go deeper than simple stretching and strengthening of muscles. Mindfulness and yoga go hand-in-hand seamlessly because both aim to achieve that higher order of awareness or connection between the body, mind, and spirit. Both yoga and mindfulness guide you to quieten your mind and form a connection with a deeper understanding of yourself and your surroundings. Practicing mindfulness helps us better our yoga practice, as it helps us get better control of our breathing and mind. It also helps us make a higher connection with our body and helps us better understand it.
