Q. Why is it important to meditate?
Stacy Kamala Waltman answers:
“You can learn to be more present with better attention to details by practicing a little meditate every single day. Through meditation you will learn to practice a set of skills which focuses your attention on one point and trains you to be fully present in the moment. Studies show that brain size and intellectual capacity increase as a direct result of a daily meditation practice.
Many photos show people meditating with crossed legs and their knees up in their air. This causes undo stress on the back. This undo stress is the opposite of yoga. The goal of yoga is to be at ease in body, mind and spirit. Therefore, at a minimum, strive to have your knees at least parallel to your hips while sitting.
You can achieve this by sitting on the edges of blankets or pillows until you can achieve more flexibility in the hip joints. Ultimately it is best if the knees are a little lower than the hips so the body can rest at ease while you are training the mind in meditation.”
