Yoga & Conditioning
Conditioning is a unique technique–pioneered by The Yoga Institute for preparedness. The art of preparing oneself for the right experiences in the present is defined as: “the withdrawal of oneself from the outer as well as the inner world, to attain an emotional calm.” This is a very desirable experience for one to be in, as it establishes the efficiency and quality of any activity that follows. When one is composed and integrated, one can work better. It is generally experienced that a state of balance (calm) is not easily acquired, especially in a short duration of time. This leads to an understanding that we must condition our minds prior to any practice for better results.
Conditioning readies the mind for further practice of Asanas, Pranayamas and Kriyas. It can also be practised independently to calm and steady the mind.
Sit in Sukhasana or any other meditative posture and close the eyes. If not possible to sit on the floor, sit on a firm chair with an erect backrest. Keep the body above the waist straight and the spine erect.
The sequence of steps:
- Close the eyes and passively observe the breath for about 10 minutes.
