We’ve often heard that yoga is the practice of listening to the body. The practice of yoga begins with the feel and listen to your body sensations while performing asanas (yoga postures). We learn to read the reaction of the body of any movement or posture while holding silent.
When we do well, your body will invite the mind to enter deeper into the posture. But when we’ve reached the limit, the body will react and look for the most comfortable position. Once we get used to listening to our bodies, the practice of yoga becomes natural. We can move with supple and injury can be avoided.
However, communications with body exercises can also be done in two directions. We can talk with your body to get into the posture, hold the posture, and out of yoga postures. It is like practicing affirmations to achieve positive results. For example, when doing poses Warriors (or Warrior), we can say to myself, “I’m strong like the warrior.”
Say the sentence a few times and we will become a formidable fighter.
