MIND & BODY


questions or situations you’ve struggled to resolve. Finally, keep track of the benefits that you notice from incorporating meditation into your yoga practice. These will become incentives to continue!


Recognizing Your Success How do you know if you are actually meditating successfully? Different people describe this meditative state in different ways. Some see a single source of light, some see themselves from a dis- tance, while others see images or even sense colors. Some people simply see or feel nothing that they can express with words. Often times you will experience a wonderful state of “beingness,” an inner glow of warmth and peace. All of these experiences are successful. Just as there is no “right” version of a yoga pose, there is no “right” way to meditate.


As you begin to explore meditation and the meditation tech- niques remember that every day is different, every practice is different, and we are constantly faced with new struggles and challenges. Yet, our inner truth remains the same; we only need to look within. Whatever your meditation practice looks like, be sure to embrace the essence of YogaFit and let go of all judgment of your personal experience.


Featured YogaFit® Pose


Triangle Pose (Trikonasana) When: After a warm-up (Mountain 2) Why: To both stretch and strengthen the body


How: Standing with your feet roughly four feet apart, heels are aligned and pointed perpendicular from each other. On an inhale stretch sideways, hingeing slightly from your hip while length- ening through your side waist. Feeling your pelvic floor and core muscles engage, open your arms while maintaining strong stability.


Tip: Remember there is nothing special about the floor! Maintaining core strength is essential to this pose.
