Yoga meditation is exactly that – practicing the art of meditation and yoga at the same time, combined into one solid practice. Essentially meditation is already (or soon becomes) a staple part of doing yoga. This is because focusing the mind and engaging a meditative state is a great way of enhancing and strengthening yogic practice. Yet even though meditation greatly enhances yoga, yoga is not necessary for meditation.
One can simply remain seated or lying down to reap the benefits of meditation – yet to take your meditation and yoga skills to the next level and strengthen both one’s core strength as well as mental fortitude, yoga meditation is what you seek.
