What is Yoga and Mindfulness?
The art of mindfulness is the returning of your awareness again and again to whatever is there for you in the present moment, non-judgmentally.
It is a way of directly experiencing the body and our inner sense of self. By listening and attuning in this way we can re-establish a whole new relationship with our self and bring unity to the body and mind. We can find a way of being at peace, of discovering a renewed sense of compassion and empathy for our self, and others.
“It helps to make the point there is nothing particularly mystical about meditating or being mindful. All it involves is paying attention to your experience from moment to moment. This leads to new ways of being in your life because the present moment whenever it is recognized and honoured, reveals a very special magical power; it is the only time that any of us ever has. The present is the only time we have to know anything. It is the only time we have to perceive, to learn, to act, to change, to heal. That is why we value moment to moment awareness so highly. While we may have to teach ourselves how to do it through practicing, the effort is its own end.”
