A great Yoga
class can definitely eliminate stress and make you feel
a whole lot better than before you came in. Then over
time stress starts to build up again and we do another
class and open up that valve of the pressure cooker once
again and release some more stress. Yoga class is
a wonderful tool to manage stress but if
we want to go a little further, we can use Yogic
mindfulness to eliminate rather than just
manage the stress.
We hear a lot about mindfulness these
days but what does it really mean? Letís look at the
The practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of
heightened or complete awareness of one's thoughts,
emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis.
Let me ask
you this? If you had two people making a very important
decision for you, who would you pick out of this choice:
1) A dear but very emotional friend who is heavily
invested in the outcome of the situation, or 2) an
acquaintance who is not emotionally invested in the
situation and can weigh the pros and cons in a very fair
and concise manner.
pick the acquaintance because they are not making the
decision based purely on emotion. Mindfulness training
is like that. It helps us to sit back and chose to be
the acquaintance instead of the emotional friend because
we begin to see situations for what they really are
rather than from the emotional charge or attachment.
can help us to start to see our stressful thoughts in a
completely different manner. We will start to see that
these thoughts rarely materialize in the physical world
the way we imagined. They no longer will be thoughts
that we torture ourselves with day in and day out. They
will no longer be thoughts that manifest in the body
leading to stress related illnesses that harm the
physical body and the mind.
believe that we can only really truly control one thing
in life and that is how we think about what we are
experiencing. Mindfulness techniques will help you
examine and re-contextualize thoughts that are causing
you stress so that you see them in a different light and
release the stress that was only really a mental
construct in your mind to begin with. The true job of
Yoga philosophy is to release blockages in our minds
that are keeping us from being happy. The Yogis say our
birth right is pure happiness, but the stress we carry
is akin to dark clouds that keeping us from enjoying a
beautiful sunny day.
