Step #8, Asana – Day 1 What does it take to align with joy? Engagement with your surroundings? Engagement with your emotions? Engagement with your mind, your body, your heartspace? Yes, and more.
Energy follows thought; this is factual. As we marry the body, breath, and mind through gentle guidance, we can create altitude and poise that supports every aspect of our being. This allows for presence. Proper physical asana allows the body to be comfortable for your time in meditation. Proper emotional asana generates equanimity, or calm. Proper mental asana generates clarity. All of this supports receptivity. Receptive to what? The possibility of joy.
