Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies

The twenty-fifth letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is Y. Y is for Yoga. 

Yoga means, “that which brings you to reality”. Literally, it means “union.” The union is it brings you to the ultimate reality, where individual manifestation.

Being mindful is a wonderful thing in my life. My Yoga and Mediation Practices has helped me a lot in my mindfulness journey. Yoga has made my mind, body, and soul to be more aware and be mindful.


A To Z 2018 Challenge - Y For Yoga


4 Simple Yoga For Mindfulness

Savasana (Corpse Pose)

Done during the start and end your practice. Lie down on your back with your feet 12 to 18 inches apart, arms at your sides a few inches away. Surrender the full weight of your body to gravity. Focus your awareness on your breath, wherever you feel it in the body. Just inhale and exhale with no much effort.

Sukhasana ( Sitting Pose )

Sit erect, with your feet stretched out in front of you. Now cross your legs such that your knees are wide, shins are crossed, and each foot is placed under the knee. Your knees must be bent, and your legs should be tucked into your torso.  When you look down on your legs, you must see a triangle formed by your shins that are crossed and both your thighs.

Tadasna ( Mountain Pose )

Stand upright with erect spine, feet together or about 10 cm apart, big toes and heels slightly touching each other. Hands to the side of the body. Relax and take deep breaths. Raise the arms straight over the head. Interlock the fingers and turn the palms upward. The hands should be placed on the top of the head. 

Choose a point on the wall slightly above the level of the head and focus the eyes firmly on that point. Inhale a deep breath and stretch upwards your whole body from top to bottom. Hold the breath and retain this position for a few seconds. Lower the hands while exhaling and bring the hands to the top of the head. Relax and take deep breaths.

Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Hands Pose)

Stand with your back against a wall in tadasana. Separate your feet hip-width apart and parallel to each other, a couple of inches away from the wall. With your arms straight, extend them in front of you, parallel to the floor, with palms facing each other. Then raise your arms overhead; Keep your arms firm and straight upwards for 30 seconds.

  1. That was a wonderful post! Yoga is one of the best ways to calm down and be more mindful! But the only asana that I seem to do these days is Shavaasana!

  2. I have been practicing Yoga for almost three years now, I completely agree with what you say. Yoga is the best way to bring about a union between your mind and your body and attain peace.

  3. Totally agree with you. Practicing mindfulness is such a need of the hour today. My own Y post is a different take on Yoga itself!
