Making Your Yoga Practice a Moving Meditation

20120811-223317.jpg

From interview of Ashtanga yoga pioneer, David Williams, in Guruji:

More and more over the years, I work to make my yoga practice a moving meditation, and then at the end of my practice, when I get up and walk away, I continue that meditation into my life, all day long. So I consider the practice to be the foundation of a twenty-four-hour-a-day meditation.

High Vibrations Yoga DVD by Jo Tastula

I’ve been practicing yoga pretty regularly lately with YogaGlo and one of my favorite yoga teachers on the site is Jo Tastula. Besides having a great Australian accent she teaches a pretty darn near perfect vinyasa flow class. I always feel inspired, focused, and in the moment afterwards. Most of her classes on YogaGlo range between 30 and 60 minutes–enough time to get good and sweaty–, but I recently discovered she also has an excellently produced DVD, High Vibrations Yoga, which consists of five short meditations and five sun salutation practices. Any combination of the practices can be completed in less than 20 minutes. Great for those moments when you don’t have a lot of time, but want to reconnect with and realign your body’s energy.

  1. Yoga is the way out in this busy world I myself am a great yoga fan.

  2. Fantastic quote. I am working towards what David Williams speaks of. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love that idea. What better way to meditate than to do yoga, or go for a walk, and be out in the world. Living a life of ease, and centeredness where ever you are!
