By combining yoga (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama) and mindfulness, we will add a moment of zen into daily life at the office.
Asanas are physical postures, meant to purify the body from toxins and optimize health. There are several types of asanas, both stimulating the flow of energy through the body and calming the mind and body.
By practising asanas we stimulate the blood flow in the brain, create discipline, improve focus and concentration and improve our ability to sit still.
Asana is the Sanskrit word for ‘seat’.
Pranayama is a variety of techniques that control the breath, which affects our body, mind and clarity of thinking.
Mindfulness is the practice of consciously steering your attention, teaching us to distance ourselves from thought patterns that are unhelpful. This helps to silence the noise and clear the clutter, allowing you to be more alert and focused and experience mental relaxation.
