PRANAYAMA & MEDITATION 

In this class, we will learn some Pranayama Fundamentals.

Breath is the main source for healthy physical and mental wellbeing. The circle of the oxygen we create from the Diaframma up to the brain is a powerful wheel of energy. 

We will go through some Meditation Experience.

Clean our mind from any heaviness and negative thoughts often do not allow us to think clearly a focus on the present and use the best of our energies to accomplish goals and projects. In order to succeed the best in our private life, family, the career we need to be able to have a firm mind and then focus on achieving what we desire.

Meditation can be the key. 

It can be difficult for the human mind to stay in the present moment. In fact, a recent study at Harvard found that people spend 46.9 per cent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they are doing. This kind of mindlessness is the norm, as the mind spends its time focused on the past (in regret mode), the future (in worry mode), and trying out should have’s and what if’s.

The study also found that allowing the brain to run on auto-pilot like this can make people unhappy. 

“A wandering mind is an unhappy mind,” the researchers said.

This is where mindfulness can help. Here’s an example of an informal mindfulness practice you can try at any time of the day, the 5 Senses Practice:

Any time you complete a simple task—like brushing your teeth or washing your dishes, tune into your five senses—sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. For each sense, name two to three examples of the things you notice as you complete the task.

For example, when you’re brushing your teeth, you may notice:

  • The flavour of the paste on your tongue.
  • The smell of the paste coming through your nostrils.
  • The cooling sensations.
  • The way the toothbrush moves over your teeth and gums.
  • The sounds of the bristles moving back and forth in your mouth.
  • Your reflection in the bathroom mirror and the lighting in the bathroom.
  • The tingling sensation of the paste on your gums and teeth.

This practise will help you tune into your surroundings and increase your present-moment awareness. If you practice this with everyday activities—even those you have done a thousand times—you will begin to notice new things about the space you are in.

As you can see, you are practising mindfulness during formal meditation, and a formal meditation practice supports and enriches your ability to be mindful in your everyday life. When you practice focusing on one thing at a time during seated meditation, it allows you to bring more focus, presence, and mindfulness into every other part of your life.
