4. A Mindful Exploration
Much of yoga focuses on training the participant to be more mindful. Mindfulness is the practice of being tuned in and in touch with all of your senses to observe the messages they are sending to you.
Mindfulness can bring you a new understanding and window into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that you have previously avoided. By gaining a better awareness of yourself, you can better understand your motivations and reactions to certain situations.
At times, mindfulness can be intimidating or even uncomfortable, but with practice, you will find this skill very rewarding.
