Yoga meditation is not only about physical postures! Our modern day yoga class tends to focus on postures only. If a little deeper study of yoga meditation is applied then it will become apparent that postures are only a small part of the practice. Postures are necessary to learn, but yoga meditation is essentially to eliminate feelings of incompletion and limitation in order to connect with our true Self.

Traditionally there are four paths of yoga. Jnana, Bhakti, Karma and Raja. These paths are not separate, they all work together in forming the art of yoga. Only a Yogi or Yogini will concentrate on perfecting the art of one of these paths only. Most commonly all four paths are blended together to balance out yoga practices. Most meditators will have preference for one or two of the paths. This is natural, but even so, it is impossible to abandon or ignore the other paths.

• Jnana explores the nature of our being. It's focus is on knowledge and wisdom.
• Bhakti concentrates on services to God, love, compassion and devotion.
• Karma is service to others, mindfulness and actions.
• Raja emphasized meditation. It deals directly with our mind's thoughts.

Even though these paths are all integrated, it is helpful to understand which one is mostly aligned with your objectives. This path will be your main emphasis and the others will be used to enhance your chosen path.

In yoga meditation train your mind to be one-pointed. There will be many obstacles along the way. Some of these may include doubt, laziness, fear of failure etc. Getting around these obstacles and not letting them interrupt your journey can be achieved by training your mind to stay focused on your objectives. A mantra or short prayer can also assist you in achieving this.

Virga means the energy of conviction and persistence. Make sure that you are firmly aware of your convictions. Develop a determination and a strong attitude to succeed in your yoga meditation.

In practice one will focus on the use of the body, senses, breath and different levels of the mind. An awareness of these will be developed and intensified until the center of consciousness is attained.

Contrary to some beliefs, yoga meditation is not a religion. It does, however, contain principles that can be related to certain religions. It is also holistic, dealing with a wide variety of practices including meditation, contemplation, prayer and mantra.

Yoga and Meditation are an important part of the lives of many people.

When many people hear the word "meditate," they think of a man in a loincloth with a serene look on his face sitting cross-legged on top of a mountain. Meditation, however, isn't nearly as esoteric as people think. It doesn't require years of study or mystical knowledge from on high; all it takes is practice.

Meditation is a spontaneous flow of consciousness when all the conditions are just right. It's about listening inwardly with a quiet mind for the wisdom and guidance of a more expansive and unlimited mind.

All the arts of relaxation — breath control, contemplation, prayer, affirmation, repetition of a mantra, and visualization — are different, but they all direct you toward self-realization and a deep meditative state. Different systems of thought and traditions vary in their meditation techniques, but they all have the same goal: to reach the point of stillness, quiet, and communion with the essence of your being.

With meditation, you discover how to quiet your mind and increase your level of energy and enjoyment of life. You experience the natural joy of being in meditation, and you establish a greater confidence and a higher understanding. Meditation can deliver deep inner peace; increase your mental stamina; improve your memory; enlarge your multitasking abilities; and teach you to organize your internal awareness and concentration.

You can practice different forms of meditation:

Mantra meditation: You focus your attention on a repeated word, thought, or sound.

Metta or loving kindness meditation: You practice acts of generosity or loving kindness toward others.

Stair-step meditation (or modified progressive relaxation): You focus on different areas of your body with the aim of relaxing those areas one at a time.

Mindfulness: You observe whatever goes through your mind without judging or analyzing it. (Some yoga practitioners don't consider this a true form of meditation, but rather a practice or deeper step toward meditation.)

Ones of the most popular forms of physical, mental and energetic exercises are so far yoga, t'ai chi and qigong. People have practised them for thousands of years.These exercises are developed and have achieved support from practitioner as they are very good for body and mind conditioning.


Western forms of exercise USE or EXPEND our energy.


Yoga, t'ai chi, and qigong BUILD UP our CHI or ENERGY.


They give us amazing amounts of ENERGY we can then use to do everything else we love-play, sing, eat, dance, study, read-EVERYTHING!


There are thousands of forms of yoga, t'ai chi, and qigong.


In some forms, yoga poses are held like beautiful statues.


Others use very fluid circular movements to increase our chi.


T'ai chi sword is like a choreographed dance.


But frolicking like an animal is the most fun, creative, beneficial, child-friendly form ever created AND, it's the oldest--originated over 1,900 years ago, hundreds of years before yoga and t'ai chi.


Imitating a bird, bear, monkey, deer, and tiger for optimum physical and mental health was the brilliant idea of one of China's greatest physicians, Hua Tuo, who lived a healthy, productive life for over 100 years.


This patriarch of Chinese medicine and great qigong master said, "Man's body must have exercise, but it should never be done to the point of exhaustion. Now I have created the art called the Frolics of the Five Animals. It eliminates sickness, benefits the legs, and is also a form of bending and stretching exercise. If you feel out of sorts, just practice one of my Frolics. A gentle sweat will exude, the complexion will become rosy, the body will feel light, and you will want to eat."


The time-tested, proven benefits of animal frolicking, a staple of modern Chinese culture and medical qigong, go far beyond medical miracles and can be experienced by children of all ages.


One teacher said, "Even if children experience only a moment of personal peace consciously pretending to be animals, it's something they can take through life. This is a tool to help people."


Frolicking gives every child the incredible opportunity to become the wizard of their own world, the queen of their own kingdom, the master of their own mind, the king of their own jungle.


Children love playing with or pretending to be animals-twisting, bending, moving, jumping, and freezing in stillness.


As children joyfully stalk the jungle like a tiger, forage for honey like a bear, swing through the trees like a monkey, soar high like an eagle, glide gracefully through the woods like a deer, swim and roar like a dragon, and pound their chest like a gorilla, they will be developing their body and mind in the easiest, yet most profound, way possible!


Our children are special gifts-innocent gifts. They absorb everything, absolutely everything, they see and hear.


Just as a sponge releases the same water it soaks up, whether that water is pure or filthy, the daily habits your children adopt early in life, along with the actions and words they see or hear from you, relatives, friends, television, teachers, movies and more will one day be released by your children.


Just by having fun, pretending to be these special chi animals that were created thousands of years ago, your children are naturally and easily developing their minds and bodies, learning social and behavioral skills, connecting their inner world with the outer world, and absorbing values and habits that will serve them throughout their life.
