Breathing in an asana practice

When I started meditating I was intrigued to notice the role the breath played in attaining concentration, awareness and peace of mind. A few years later, when I took up yoga, this was a familiar element to me and focus on the breath became one of the essential and important aspects in my practice. Coming back to the breath helps me to keep the development of my personal practice in perspective and cultivate greater concentration and relaxation.

The sacred syllable Aum

Most people in the world will have come across the symbol Aum one way or another – it has been absorbed into western culture from the east as a symbol of unity, piece and spirituality, has enjoyed high visibility in any New Age related context and has been tattooed onto bodies and chanted throughout yoga classes across the world – often without further explanation of its meaning.
