Why Does Yoga - Yoga Meditation Work?

Jun 18, 2008
It is like life is going at a fast pace today. Technology, faster cars, airplanes, and all forms of transport, and life in general are going faster. It seems hard to keep up, and Yoga, and Yoga meditation with its techniques as old as 4000 years claims to bring peace and harmony today. So, why does yoga and meditation work?

Technology got such a big investment, because it was and is believed that it will allow us to live more easily. The dishwasher stops woman and men everywhere from having to spend hours washing dishes. An airplane makes a vacation and not a pilgrimage. A van is there to help us from carrying heavy things without having to do it ourselves!

However, even with all this added technology, life still has gotten to a faster pace. It seems like every time the computers increase in speed, the world has to move just a bit faster.

Yoga is truly an ancient technique; a gift to man that applies just as well from when it was handed to us, as it is today. But, why does it work? Yoga has more and more people becoming interested in it. More and more people are meditating, and it is no longer a taboo to say you meditate or do yoga.

I remember some time ago hearing about how we breath. We have to options, one is breathing from our chest, while the other is breathing from the stomach. The interesting point is that babies breath from there belly, whereas as we become adults we tend to only breathe from the chest area.

Breathing is a fascinating topic, and one which most people don't think about. By simply changing breathing from a fast pace to a slower pace, we automatically relax more. As we close our eyes, and do meditation, we relax more.

It seems like all the troubles of the world disappear, and when we open our eyes again, we have new vigor. We have a sense of peace. And if you have not meditated before, then it is something to consider.

Meditation brings peace of mind. And with the added benefit of other parts of Yoga, the diet, the exercises, postures, and positive thinking, it can truly bring us into harmony, even today.

Scientific research has shown the benefits of yoga and meditation. The peace of mind it brings you is simply amazing. Even in a world that can seem chaotic, meditation and yoga can truly bring peace to you.

Looking at people who have done meditation for a while, and regularly, you will see that they can handle more things with a relaxed state of mind, than others who don't do meditation and yoga.
