What is Yoga?
yoga- ˈjəʊɡə/
Yoga is a noun:
a  Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including  breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily  postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.

Currently  worldwide, a fresh new phenomena have spread with all nationals,  religions and faith increasing their awareness and participation in this  500 year old discipline. The various types of yoga lists are way too  many to mention so we compiled a brief list for you to understand which  would suit your style better. 

A few popular examples of Yoga

Yoga for beginners..

ANUSARA

Anusara is often described as  Iyengar (a purist form of yoga) with a sense of humor. Created by the  aptly named John Friend, Anusara is meant to be heartfelt and accepting.  Instead of trying to fit everyone into standard cookie-cutter  positions, students are guided to express themselves through the poses  to their fullest ability.

ASHTANGA

Six established and  strenuous pose sequences — the primary series, second series, third  series, and so on — practiced sequentially as progress is made.  Ashtangis move rapidly, flowing from one pose to the next with each  inhale and exhale. Each series of poses linked by the breath this way is  called a vinyasa.

BIKRAM

This is probably my favorite. I’m a  hot yoga kind of person and Bikram features yoga poses in a sauna-like  room. The heat is cranked up to nearly 105 degrees and 40 percent  humidity in official Bikram classes. If it’s called “Bikram” (for  inventor Bikram Choudhury), it will be a series of 26 basic yoga  postures, each performed twice.

What is Meditation?

Meditation is a means of transforming the  mind. Buddhist meditation practices are techniques that encourage and  develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing  of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation  practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the  practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. 

Here are a few examples

 FOCUSED ATTENTION MEDITATION
Focusing  the attention on a single object during the whole meditation session.  

This object may be the breath, a mantra, visualization, part of the  body, external object, etc. As the practitioner advances, his ability to  keep the flow of attention in the chosen object gets stronger, and  distractions become less common and short-lived. Both the depth and  steadiness of his attention are developed.


OPEN MONITORING MEDITATION
Instead  of focusing the attention on any one object, we keep it open,  monitoring all aspects of our experience, without judgment or  attachment. 

All perceptions, be them internal (thoughts, feelings,  memory, etc.) or external (sound, smell, etc.), are recognized and seen  for what they are. It is the process of non-reactive monitoring of the  content of experience from moment to moment, without going into them.  


Examples are: Mindfulness meditation, Vipassana, as well as some types  of Taoist Meditation

EFFORTLESS PRESENCE
This  is where the state attention is not focused on anything in particular,  though reposes on itself – quiet, empty, steady, and introverted.

We can  also call it “Choiceless Awareness” or “Pure Being”. Most of the  meditation quotes you find speak of this state.

This is actually  the true purpose behind all kinds of meditation and not a meditation  type in itself. All traditional techniques of meditation recognize that  the object of focus and even the process of monitoring, is just a means  to train the mind, so that effortless inner silence and deeper states of  consciousness can be discovered. 


Eventually both the object of focus  and the process itself is left behind and there is only left the true  self of the practitioner, as “pure presence”.
