Ideal locations are technology-free havens, blocking out mind-distracting sounds. Natural light-filled spaces are favored over flickering electrical lighting.
Choose locations with minimal synthetic materials, opting for wood floors treated with natural oils and waxes for less static electricity and better yoga meditation.
Avoid feeling drowsy or distracted during meditation by scheduling it a few hours after a meal, when you're comfortably settled and not too hungry.
Enhance your meditation experience by warming up your body for better focus and flexibility. Prioritize core and back exercises, including light twists and bends. Sukshma Yoga exercises offer additional benefits.
Achieve good posture for meditation by sitting on the floor or a chair. Avoid rigidity and feel free to choose a comfortable position. If crossing legs, alternate which leg is on top during each meditation session.
Practice alternate nostril breathing by placing index and middle fingers between your eyes and the remaining fingers around your nose
