In hatha yoga, a physical moving meditation, you may get more benefits if you get into each posture and hold it. Try it – get into a place where you know you can hold the posture, and don’t tweak – don’t critique – don’t try to go further – get out of your head, stop listening to your yoga teacher’s queues, and hold yourself in stillness. You may find a deeper calming here, a way to let go of the chatter in your head, in your place of stillness, paying attention to your breath and your body. When I can do this, simply get into my pose and hold still – I find a deeper connection with my meditation – my purpose for being in the yoga room. I feel much more relaxed, calm, peaceful, centered, and well-equipped to be the best person I can be for the remainder of my day.
