What is Yogic Meditation

by | Meditation

Most have heard of Mindfulness Meditation and different forms of Buddhist Meditation, such as Lovingkindess, but did you know that Yoga has a rich tradition of Meditation?

In fact, Meditation is one of the penultimate practices of Yoga. Yoga has come to be understood as meaning Yoga asana (the postures practiced in Yoga class), but this was not always the case.

Yoga postures are just a means of preparing the body for the higher practices and purpose of Yoga beyond the physical body and mental relaxation – including Meditation.

Check out the video below for a brief introduction to Yogic Meditation where I reference Raja Yoga and Yoga stemming from the Tantric texts. (This is an older video, forgive the sound quality!)
