How to Meditate Anywhere

By Guest Blogger Mary Ward

Meditation is what helps to keep many people centered and focused. This is the most basic form of relaxation and though it is simple, it can take some getting used to at the beginning. Many people have a spot in their homes that they like to meditate and that they are quite comfortable in. It usually takes a special designated spot to get started so that you can tune out the outside world and focus on your breathing. Initially it may seem that meditating anywhere but the quiet sanctuary of your own home is virtually impossible. However, once you get into meditation and understand how you can make it work for you and your mental well being, you will quickly see that it can be done anywhere.

It’s All About the Focus
The key to meditation and what makes it such an excellent relaxation technique is that you can focus. You can get in touch with your inner self and concentrate on nothing but your breathing. Once you determine and understand that it is truly all about the focus, the location becomes far less important. If you can learn to tune out the outside world, no matter how distracting it may be, you can master meditation from anywhere. This takes some time and serious discipline, but you will quickly find that meditation can take place from anywhere that you allow yourself to truly focus.

Make a Safe Spot
Whether you’re at a friend’s house for the weekend, at a hotel, or in an unusual destination, the key is to find an appropriate spot to meditate. A spot in which you can tune out the outside world, focus without outside interruptions or distractions, and do nothing but breath. There is always a spot to do that, even if it’s in a bathroom or hallway, and as you practice meditation you will quickly see just how easy it is to tune out the distractions of the world around you. Initially though, finding a spot conducive to meditation can be quite helpful.

Breathing Makes a Big Difference
Meditation is not only about gratitude, but also about the breathing techniques that you practice. Learning to breathe deeply and hold these breaths can come in handy in the most stressful situation. You will quickly see just how meditation can help with the stressful situations that present themselves in everyday life, and you may just find that you are meditating in the most unusual spot without even thinking about it.

Swami Vishnu-devananda was the first in the West to develop a training program for yoga teachers. He did this not only

with the vision to develop yoga professionals, but also to give sincere aspirants the skills of personal discipline and to

develop messengers of peace. The Course is a profound, personal experience, based on the ancient gurukula teaching

system, integrating the student's daily life into the yoga training. By the end of the intensive four-week course the student

will possess a firm foundation for teaching others, in addition to strengthening his or her own yoga practice with

self-discipline and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit. Upon graduation from the course, students receive a

certificate of qualification. The program has seen the graduation of more than eleven thousand students over the last

thirty years. Men and women come from all around the world take part in the training, which is given in English with

simultaneous translation into European languages, as well as Hebrew, Japanese, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.


we developed a program that teaches you everything you need to know to teach yoga AND run a successful yoga

business - and you can learn it from home, at your own pace.

I call it the "Yoga Teacher Training Camp" for Home Study Yoga Teacher Certification.
And with the praise I've received for the original camp-in-a-box, I've been inspired to create a full collection of home

study courses for popular and important Yoga Teacher specialities, such as Restorative Yoga Teacher, Kid's Yoga

Teacher, Chair Yoga Teacher, Pre-natal & Post-natal Yoga Teacher, Yoga Teacher Trainer (level II), Vinyasa Yoga,

Meditation Teacher, Yoga Anatomy and more.
Equally important, I've developed courses and tools to help Yoga Teachers run successful Yoga Teacher businesses.

After all, it's one thing to devote yourself to doing what you love (Yoga), but it's quite another to be able to support

yourself comfortably and securely while doing it. You won't learn these skills at a typical Yoga Teacher Camp.
Whether you're an experienced Yoga Teacher needing to re-certify or a beginner looking to become a yoga teacher -

you've come to the right place. Our Free Yoga Teacher Community will help you find what you're looking for.

value of these courses.

Yoga (Sanskrit, Pali: yóga) refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is

associated with meditative practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. In Hinduism, it also refers to one of the six

orthodox (astika) schools of Hindu philosophy, and to the goal toward which that school directs its practices. In Jainism

it refers to the sum total of all activities—mental, verbal and physical.

Major branches of yoga in Hindu philosophy include Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Hatha

Yoga. Raja Yoga, compiled in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and known simply as yoga in the context of Hindu

philosophy, is part of the Samkhya tradition.[10] Many other Hindu texts discuss aspects of yoga, including Upanishads,

the Bhagavad Gita, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita and various Tantras.

The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj," meaning "to control," "to yoke"

or "to unite."[12] Translations include "joining," "uniting," "union," "conjunction," and "means." Outside India, the term

yoga is typically associated with Hatha Yoga and its asanas (postures) or as a form of exercise. Someone who practices

yoga or follows the yoga philosophy is called a yogi or yogini

Ayurveda is a holistic healing science which comprises of two words, Ayu and Veda. Ayu means life and Veda means

knowledge or science. So the literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda is a science dealing

not only with treatment of some diseases but is a complete way of life. Read More
"Ayurveda treats not just the ailment but the whole person and emphasizes prevention of disease to avoid the need for

cure."
Ayurvedic Medicine has become an increasingly accepted alternative medical treatment in America during the last two

decades.
Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicines
* By using ayurvedic and herbal medicines you ensure physical and mental health without side effects. The natural

ingredients of herbs help bring “arogya” to human body and mind. ("Arogya" means free from diseases). The

chemicals used in preparing allopathy medicines have impact on mind as well. One should have allopathy

medicine only when it is very necessary.
* According to the original texts, the goal of Ayurveda is prevention as well as promotion of the body’s own capacity

for maintenance and balance.
* Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic, so it can be used safely as an alternative therapy or alongside

conventional therapies.
* Ayurvedic physicians claim that their methods can also help stress-related, metabolic, and chronic conditions.
* Ayurveda has been used to treat acne, allergies, asthma, anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, colitis,

constipation, depression, diabetes, flu, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, inflammation, insomnia, nervous

disorders, obesity, skin problems, and ulcers.


Ayurvedic Terms Explained

Dosha: In Ayurvedic philosophy, the five elements combine in pairs to form three dynamic forces or interactions called

doshas. It is also known as the governing principles as every living things in nature is characterized by the dosha.

Ayurvedic Facial: Purportedly, a "therapeutic skin care experience" that involves the use of "dosha-specific" products

and a facial massage focusing on "marma points."

Ayurvedic Nutrition (Ayurvedic Diet): Nutritional phase of Ayurveda. It involves eating according to (a) one's "body type"

and (b) the "season." The alleged activity of the doshas--three "bodily humors," "dynamic forces," or "spirits that

possess"--determines one's "body type." In Ayurveda, "body types" number seven, eight, or ten, and "seasons"

traditionally number six. Each two-month season corresponds to a dosha; for example, the two seasons that correspond

to the dosha named "Pitta" (see "Raktamoksha") constitute the period of mid-March through mid-July. But some

proponents enumerate three seasons: summer (when pitta predominates), autumn, and winter (the season of kapha); or

Vata season (fall and winter), Kapha season (spring), and Pitta season (summer). According to Ayurvedic theory, one

should lessen one's intake of foods that increase ("aggravate") the ascendant dosha.

Yoga holds that a person’s health condition depends on himself. It lays emphasis on physical, mental and emotional balance and development of a sense of harmony with all of life. There’s nothing mystical about it.Nor is it external. Rather it is an inner faculty. Yoga endeavors to re-establish inner balance through a variety of ways, ranging from the gross to the subtle. Which is why it is considered a holistic art.Rather than prescribe treatments, yoga therapy encourages awareness. Through age-old yogic techniques, we get to know ourselves better.From that knowledge, comes the ability to more easily accept and adapt to change, resulting in enhanced well-being in body, mind, heart and spirit. Hence its applicability to almost all chronic conditions.

What approach does yoga therapy take?

Contrary to modern medical science that tries to identify the pathogenic factor (be it a toxic substance, a micro-organism, or metabolic disorder) then eliminate it, Yoga takes a totally different point of view. It holds that if a person is sick there must be a deeper reason behind it – that illness doesn’t arise by chance. It is the result of an imbalance, a disruption in the body-mind complex that creates the condition. Here the symptoms, the pathogenic factors, are not the issue. Yoga believes that the root cause lies somewhere else.

retreat yoga is more than simply poses and stretches, it focuses on calming the mind and strengthening the body. Therefore, instructors always ensure a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone – from beginners through to veterans. Rejuvenative yoga covers subtle techniques for creating an understanding of our body through releasing tension, mainly from the hips and shoulders. When practiced traditionally Astnaga Yoga is a 6 day a week exercise. Once introduced to the yoga, many find it inescapable and integrate it as a regular activity in their daily lives. Those who practise yoga will experience increased flexibility and toning of muscles. Yoga has also been proven to assist in preventing illness and supports an entirely healthy and invigorated mind, body and soul. It is important to realise we don’t need to buy something material to make us feel good. Yoga activists acquire a sense of increased physical strength and flexibility, in addition to greater concentration and general well-being. What could be better than treating your mind and body to an intimate practise that serves to benefit your well being?
The opening prayer for the practice of yoga reads as: “Because I want more peace of mind and stability in life, I faithfully practice yoga as it has been passed down by the gurus.” Yoga allows for the creation of peace as well as physical, mental and spiritual awareness and escapism.
