In meditation, we bring mind and body into a quiet space to witness the fluctuation of thought and emotion. Within this quiet observation, we can identify each seed of thought as it grows to frame the way we process and interpret our lives. Therapeutic yoga is focused on dysfunctional movement therapy by releasing chronic tension buildup and re-orchestrating kinesthetic patterning.Cooling down your body after exercise is essential. A cool down involves stretching the muscles that have been worked in order to maintain flexibility as well as avoid cramps and injury. Whether following a cardio or strength workout or after playing sports yoga is a brilliant option for your post-exercise cool down. In fact, there are a number of yoga poses that are particularly helpful for restoring your muscle tissue after exercise. What's more since yoga helps to calm the mind you are sure to feel refreshed and reenergised after your yoga cool down. Adyashanti - Merge and Unite with What Is

4. How to Meditate with Kino
When I first started to develop a meditation practice I was afraid that my mind wasn't calm enough. But just like with yoga you don't need a calm mind or a flexible body to start.

Sit for five minutes a day and bring your attention to your breath. This short clip on how to meditate was filmed at Balans Yoga in Goteborg (Gothenburgh) Sweden.
