Positive thinking and meditation are one of the five main principles in Sivananda Hatha Yoga; the other main principles are proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation and proper diet. Together, these components of yoga help to improve your overall health and well being.
Yoga has the ability to inspire you and empower you to feel good about yourself. When you meditate you may find it hard to concentrate and still your mind. It takes many days of regular sitting to train your mind to stay focused on one point, whether that is your breath, a mantra or simply observing the sun rise every morning.
If you struggle to settle your mind on a singular point, then maybe one of the following seven inspirational yoga quotes will give you the boost needed to refocus and build up your meditation practice. If you are going through a particularly tough emotional time it can be hard to show up and do your physical yoga practice. However, it is still possible to find that touch of inspiration, calm and clarity through meditating on affirmations or inspirational quotes.
Seeds of wisdom are contained in yogic quotes which capture the true spirit and meaning of Yoga.
I trust this collection of my favourite yoga quotes inspire, uplift and motivate you.
