How to practice mindfulness: Instruction & Inspiration
In the eBook version of my book Five Keys to Well-being. Essentials of Effective Yoga I state that yoga promotes “every aspect of practice helps develop the whole, and the whole supports development of every aspect, in an endless, uplifting feedback spiral”.
Key Five is Integration, or mindfulness of yoga particle into lifestyle. These Essentials of Effective Yoga are uncomplicated, yet involves much detail – just like mindfulness practice.The techniques in the book captures the simple, practical mechanics of yoga in a clean, clear and concise guide. Mindfulness meditation tends towards long term development, but at least signs of its potential usually represents straight away when practiced with good posture and effective breath awareness. This is why The Five Keys begin with Posture & Breath, adds mobility and stress release/relaxation and ends with Mindfulness.
