As I regularly meditate, meditation during movement is a common practice I do, but how to meditate when doing exercise is quite a challenge. As the excessive breath and big movement will make it quite hard to focus.
Surprisingly after regularly practice, I realised we can easily go into meditation in between poses. This can be achieved when we have increased lung capacity, better understanding of breathing sequence, and a more flexible and stronger body.
The benefit of yoga poses is it is a controlled movement, the more we practice, the smoother the transition is. We can build muscle memories and focus more on breathing that make us go into the pose easier.
With enough practice, we can focus into the poses and sense the changes of muscle, thoughts and surrounding. Eventually I realised it also brings the very same effect of doing meditation, which is calmer mind, steadier heartbeat and lighter of body and mind.
