Effective Yoga Asana and Meditation Aasan

Yoga and meditation bring enormous benefits to your health and lifestyle, but are remarkably easy to get into. For anyone interested in getting started, you can easily try out a few of the simpler poses at home by searching online or Reading Yoga Asana Books like Gherand Samhita, Gorakh Samhita, Patanjali Yog Sutra, Hatha Yoga Pradipika- you should find many different articles on this subject. However, if you’re serious about getting into things, then by far the best way to get instruction on yoga and meditation is to turn to a professional, and take classes in them. Of course, since we specialise in training yoga and meditation teachers from all over the world, we will be happy to put you in touch with one in your area.

In terms of equipment, meditation requires virtually nothing at all- just a peaceful space, Aasan and somewhere comfortable to sit to practice concentration (Dharana) and  Meditation (Dhyana). Yoga isn’t much more complicated, as for most poses and exercises, you’ll only need a yoga mat and a yoga block. It’s a very small investment, and will allow you to take part in all manner of yoga poses and flows- so they will last you all the way through your yoga journey to even the most complex of techniques.
