How to Relax your Mind and body With Yoga

Yoga is a path to health, relaxation and inner happiness. Through yoga, you cleanse your body and mind systematically, removing the build-up of tension (samskaras). Inner happiness results from this, as well as healing and ongoing health, giving you a healthy body and a positive mind. Moreover, you'll experience inner peace, inexhaustible energy and mental clarity. You'll embrace love, joy and kindness. To relax with yoga, here is what to do.


  1. Relax With Yoga Step 1
    Find the right technique. Yoga provides a variety of techniques. It has techniques for the body and the mind. It is important that you practice each yoga exercise so that it works well for you. If something hurts you, omit it. If it works well for you, keep doing it. You can vary all yoga exercises creatively––you must ask yourself constantly: “What do I need now? What’s good for me? What triggers my tension the most?”
  2. Relax With Yoga Step 2
    Lie on your back.
    • Stretch your right leg. For one minute, lift your stretched right leg, with the toes pointing to your head. Keep your head resting on the ground. Meditate on the right leg.
    • Next, stretch the left leg and lift it as far as possible, keeping the toes pointed to the head. Meditate for one minute on the left leg.
    • Keep your arms lying relaxed at the sides during this step.
  3. Relax With Yoga Step 3
    Lift up both legs in the supine position. Keep the toes pointing to your head.
    • Raise your head towards your feet. Send a light beam from the toes to the head and think the mantra "Light".
    • Inhale from the stomach. Meditate for one minute in this posture.
  4. Relax With Yoga Step 4
    Go into the candle pose. Straighten both of your legs to the sky and support yourself with your hands, from the back. Breathe one minute, relaxing into the body.
  5. Relax With Yoga Step 5
    Roll out from the candle pose. Again, take up the supine position, and stretch your legs. Put your hands on your belly and move gently your feet. Stop your mind and focus for a minute just on your belly.
  6. Relax With Yoga Step 6
    Turn over onto your stomach. Lift your upper body, as far as possible, with your back muscles and hold for a minute. Your head should be positioned in the back, your hands placed laterally from your body on the floor. Breathe, relaxing into the cobra pose. Send a beam of light from the head down the back and think "Light".
  7. Relax With Yoga Step 7
    Tilt your head and lift the right leg, stretching it as far as possible in the air.Meditate for one minute on the stretched leg. Lift the left leg for a minute and concentrate on it, relaxing.
  8. Relax With Yoga Step 8
    Raise your upper body and head into the cobra pose. Place your hands laterally from your body on the floor. In addition, lift both legs and bring your feet together as closely as possible to the head. Inhale from the stomach in a relaxed way and hold the position for a minute. Send a beam of light from the feet to the head and think the mantra "Light".
  9. Relax With Yoga Step 9
    Lay your head in the prone position on your hands. Turn the pelvis several times, as you breath, relaxing it to the left and right. Focus on the spine and twist as much as possible (and gently).
  10. Relax With Yoga Step 10
    Straighten your back, place your head upright, and relax the belly. Lay your hands in your lap.
    • Circulate light through your head, your whole body, your legs, feet, arms and hands. At the same time think the mantra "light, light, light".
    • Visualize a small star (dot of light). As the star circulates the earth, think "Earth". Then ,let the star circulate in the sky, around your body and through your body. Think the mantra "Star, Star, Star."
    • Rub circles on your stomach with one hand––and the star comes to rest.
  11. Relax With Yoga Step 11
    Lie or sit down in a comfortable position.
    • Gently move your feet. Stop all thoughts for minute. Then, relax completely.
    • Let your day be suffused with a positive glow. Take things as they are. Concentrate on your goals. Work for a world of love, peace and happiness.
    • Move a hand, send all people light and think, "I send light to (name). May all people be happy. May the world be happy."

  • One very useful and clever strategy to cope with negative energy through the day is to take frequent short breaks. At work, it is important to avoid stress and work in your personal space. When you're working in a relaxed manner, you save a lot of energy and it's easier to remain positive. And consider reducing your working hours. Consider why you work so much––do you really need to? For the person who lives wisely, you can avoid a lot of suffering.
  • Eat healthily. People who consume less calories but nutritionally higher quality food, and who exercise more, have a better chance of living longer without ill health. It's also important to give your spiritual self a central space in your life.
  • A small tale: A woman once wrote that she was very happy that she had learned yoga. In recent years, she had experienced both professionally and personally a lot of stress in her life. As a result, she'd lost her sense of positivity and her sense of satisfaction in life had diminished. Through yoga, she managed to reduce her internal stress and found happiness again, no longer feeling stressed. She was very grateful because yoga had given her the ability to clearly tell the difference between what mattered and what was merely petty. This freed her up to focus more on the essential things in life. She no longer "sweated the small stuff", thereby conserving her energy. For every day she practiced yoga, she felt positive and lived in a permanent state of fulfillment. However, she found also that when she ceased to practice yoga and positive thinking for a few days, her good energy quickly disappears. This made her even more determined to follow the path of yoga with greater consistently, every day.

    And apart from the benefits of feeling happier and more energetic, she also found her psychic energy became stronger and that even though she was more attuned to negative energy, she was much better able to repel it. She had found a way to cope with difficulties of every kind. To this day, she simply asks herself, "How would the Dalai Lama act now?" And then she is able to quickly come up with the proper way to cope with difficult situations.

    This tale shows how negative energies don't go away when you practice yoga. You still need to face what is inevitable. But daily yoga will relax you and restore the energy needed to fend off other people's negative energy. It will also help you make sound decisions about avoiding negative energy sources. For example, you can minimize or avoid contact with particularly negative people and you can use positive thinking or mantras to ward off the negativity when you do make contact. After negative experiences with others, you can rebuild your positive energy through spiritual exercises (such as yoga, reading, and meditation).


  • Avoid rushing! Yoga with meditation is about taking it slowly and quietly. The various yoga postures activate your chakras (inner energy channels) and load you with good energy. Meditation during the yoga exercises brings your mind to rest.
    • Seek to meditate on each yoga posture 1 to 3 minutes.
    • Feel how each yoga posture forms a specific energy field (aura field) around the body. Through the creation of certain energy fields, you clean our body and mind of tensions.
  • Don't over think what is happening. It is helpful if you can feel the spiritual energy. But it is not necessary. It is enough to concentrate in a relaxed way on your body and the postures.
    • Take breaks as needed between the yoga exercises. This will keep you refreshed.

A Great Way to Start your Perfect Day

1 / 10  

Yoga positions, called asanas, are the basic physical part of a yoga practice. Although yoga poses are a type of exercise for your body, they are also much more. The word yoga itself is from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language, and refers to the union of mind and spirit. Yoga began in India more than 3,000 years ago and is still practiced today for the health of the mind, body, and spirit. A morning yoga practice is a great way to get energized for the day ahead.

2 / 10   Cat-Cow Pose

Cat-Cow Pose is a great morning stretch for your back. "This yoga position opens the whole spine," says Jacqueline Corso, psychotherapist and certified yoga instructor on Cape Cod, Mass. To get into this yoga pose you need to get down on all fours. While gazing up at the ceiling, you drop your back down toward the floor as you inhale. Then while looking down at your belly button, you arch your back up like a cat and exhale. "Try to do this movement for one or two minutes,".

3 / 10   Downward Dog

If you have ever seen a dog stretch, you know how Downward Dog got its name. It’s a standard yoga pose, though not all beginners are able to do it, says Corso. For this position, start on your hands and knees, with your knees directly below your hips and your hands slightly forward of your shoulders. Press back, lifting your knees away from the floor while keeping your arms straight, and lift your tailbone up. Stretch your heels toward the floor to lengthen your hamstrings. "This yoga pose opens up the back of the body and is very energizing. It should be held for about 30 seconds to one minute," 

4 / 10   Warrior One

"Warrior One is a standing position that signifies and stimulates strength and power,” Corso says. Start by standing up straight, and then step your left leg back 3 and a half to 4 feet. Bend your right knee so it’s directly above the ankle, and turn your left foot in slightly. Raise your arms directly above you, reaching strongly, and look up. This yoga pose stretches the back and the lower body. “It can be strenuous on the arms, which are held high in the air,” . Hold for 30 seconds to one minute, then repeat, reversing leg positions.

5 / 10   Warrior Two

Warrior Two is similar to Warrior One, but the arms are held out to the side with the head looking forward, and the back foot is at a 90-degree angle instead of turned in slightly. "As with all yoga positions, breathing is an important part of the exercise," explains Corso. "As a matter of fact, yoga without breathing and meditation is just a stretching exercise. You can run through a series of morning stretches in about 20 minutes or you can add periods of meditation and have a morning yoga session that lasts an hour or more.

6 / 10   Extended Side Angle Pose

Extended Side Angle Pose is another standing yoga position, which improves strength, flexibility, and posture. This pose is particularly good to stretch the side of your body and strengthen your legs. "No matter what the yoga position, it's important to understand that yoga draws energy from inside the body. Physical movement wakes up the body," says Corso. In this pose, the legs are spread as in Warrior Two, but the torso is turned sideways with one arm pointing to the ceiling and the head looking upward. When your right knee is bent, you’ll have your right palm planted on the ground outside the knee, and your left arm reaching up so there’s a straight line from your left foot all the way up the side to your left arm. Hold for about a minute and then repeat on the other side.

7 / 10   Tree Pose

This is a standing yoga pose that helps to cultivate balance and strengthen your legs. To get into Tree Pose, stand straight and then shift your weight to the right foot, bringing the sole of your left foot up to your right inner thigh. If you can’t balance with the foot on the thigh, try placing your foot on the calf instead — just avoid putting your foot on the knee. The hands are held together in a prayer position over the chest. "This yoga position requires balance and concentrates the mind," . Try to hold this pose for a minute or two and then switch to the other leg.

8 / 10   Camel Pose

Camel Pose frees the energy in your throat, chest, and heart. "This yoga position is for intermediate or advanced practitioners,” . “It's important to remember that not everyone can do every yoga pose perfectly, but yoga can be adapted to each person's abilities." To get into the pose, start in the kneeling position. The upper torso is gradually bent backward until the arms are extended backward, the hands are touching the soles of the feet, and the head is completely extended. Hold for 30 seconds to one minute. For a beginner’s modification, in a kneeling position, simply lean your upper body back, keeping your hands on your hips, until you feel a stretch in your legs.

9 / 10  

If you want to get a really good morning yoga stretch, include this yoga pose in your routine. "Seated Twist will ring out all your tension like twisting a wet towel," . Start by sitting with legs out straight. Bend your knees, put your feet on the floor, and then slide your left foot under your right leg to the outside of your right hip. Lay the outside of the left leg on the floor. Your right leg should be over the left with your right foot standing on the floor outside your left hip. The right knee points directly up at the ceiling The upper body twists as far around as your shoulders and waist will let you turn. Hold for about 30 seconds and then stretch the other way.

10 / 10   Final Thoughts on Morning Yoga

Yoga can be done any time of day, but morning yoga is a great way to wake up your body and get your energy flowing. "It's impossible not to notice the change in your mind and your body after a yoga session," says Corso. Not everyone has the flexibility to get into every yoga pose. Consider having a certified yoga instructor start you out on a program that fits your ability level.
