Meditation – The Mental Benefits of Yoga
Posted by Administrator on 6/10/2011
Yoga is not just a form of exercise. It is also a state of mind. This is what Patanjali, the man widely known as the founder of this philosophy, had envisioned for the discipline. It was meant to be a path to God and enlightenment through the unification of the mental, physical, and spiritual states of being. That is why there are many meditation poses and breathing exercises, to help practitioners reach the highest level of mental awareness, which is the act of self-realization.
