At the Yoga Coaching course, I learned to identify several points to focus on. They might seem obvious to many, but very few of us spend any time optimising them. They include how we breathe, charging ourselves, as Alessia called it, with “Energy”, as well as discharging it (I was very skeptical but it actually works), and focusing attention.
My approach to Yoga was an extremely pragmatic one, verging on cynicism: if it makes me more efficient at work then OK, otherwise forget it. The exercises I was taught are very simple. They force you to adopt a specific kind of breathing. As a result, we actually feel more energized, or more relaxed, as the case may be. This obliges thought processes to focus on the essence of a concept, hence we achieve focalisation.
In my view, people who generally fail to see their objectives through, might not find Yoga beneficial. But by the same token, I am now convinced it can help you obtain results in the simplest, most efficient way possible. I rarely dedicate more than fifteen minutes a day to Yoga, but I feel it has become an important part of my daily routine. This practical approach makes the course well worth doing.
