TITLE http://www.y2lstudio.com/ Here are some stress management techniques based on meditation and paranayama. These techniques can help you reduce anxiety before an important meeting, calm you down when stuck in traffic, help you keep cool when faced with irritating people or situations and reduce fear and phobias when stuck in elevators or a dentist's chair. You can try these stress management techniques at any time. We teach these techniques at our Meditation Center in Baner, Pune regularly. Abdominal Breathing (1 min) Place your right hand below the navel in a relaxed manner. Simply focus on the sensation of your clothes against the right palm. As you inhale, expand the belly. Pause and count to 3. As you exhale contract the belly. Pause and count to 3. Repeat this 10 times. Focus: As simple as this seems, it is the hardest thing to do when stressed. The trick is to constantly remind yourself to keep all your attention on the movement of the belly and the counting. This stress management technique is the simplest way to relax in a stressful situation.

As you exhale, imagine all tension and stress leaving your body. Repeat for 9 breaths, breathing out the numbers 9 to 1. If you forget the count at any time, simply start from 10 again. Focus: For this exercise to be effective it is important to breathe out slowly, in a relaxed yet attentive way.

Become aware of the place in your throat from where the sound is coming. If you like, you can place your index finger at that point. Inhale through the nose, exhale through the mouth, paying attention to that point of your throat and making a sighing sound on the exhalation. You should hear a soft, hissing sound like that of the ocean waves. If you feel strain in your throat, soften the sound – it should be a pleasing, soothing sound. Once you are comfortable with this, keep the mouth closed; try exhaling through the nose while making the same sound. Continue with regular inhalations and ocean/ ujjayi exhalations. Focus: Even if this seems complicated, Ocean Breath or Ujjayi breath is THE MOST POWERFUL stress management technique. Elongate your exhalations and focus completely on the sound coming from the throat. Do not overdo, you should not feel a strain in your throat.

TITLE http://www.y2lstudio.com/ Mins - Squeeze and Release (2 mins) This is a progressive muscle relaxation technique where we gradually tighten the entire body and then relax it releasing all the coiled up energy. You can practice this sitting down or lying down. Technique 1: Full Body Start with your toes, squeeze your toes, and slowly move up your body squeezing your ankles, calves, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, chest, fingers, wrists, arms, scrunch up your face and hold for a count of three. Imagine all your organs and cells getting squeezed and releasing their toxins. Release with a soft sigh imagining the stress oozing out of your body. Repeat second and third time holding for a count of 5 and 10 respectively. At our Meditation Center in Baner, Pune we conduct a full body 1 hour meditation based on this simple Squeeze and Release Technique. You end up feeling completely relaxed and fresh. Technique 2: Part By Part As shown in the picture below, scrunch your face then relax it. Repeat in a similar fashion with your arms, shoulders, chest, thighs and legs.

Feel the contraction of your body or body part fully and release completely, experiencing the relaxation that immediately follows the release.

TITLE http://www.y2lstudio.com/ Frequently Ask Questions What is the difference between Meditation and Deep Relaxation? Ans : Meditation is a broad term that covers everything from being engrossed in the act of painting to Nirvana. Deep Relaxation  is one of the stages that occur in meditation as you start withdrawing from the external world and connecting with yourself in a deeper way. 2. Who can sign up for it? Ans : Deep Relaxation  is a completely safe practise and anyone can sign up for it. It can be done while sitting on the floor, on the chair or lying down. For each individual, the process of Deep Relaxation proceeds at its own pace and comfort level. One finds that with regular practice, and over a period of time, it gets much easier to shut out the external world and stay deep within oneself. 3. Meditation is an internal state. Why do I need to attend class to do meditation? Ans : The class provides a formal setting for like-minded people to come together and practice regularly. The vibes of a  Chanting  session get amplified dramatically in a group setting. The variety of the sessions and instructions motivate you to stick with the practice. The class also provides a forum to discuss any doubts and experience.

Stretching helps to release the restless energy of the body. Stretching is followed by Pranayama and Chanting. You will find that with each step your mind gets quieter and quieter. When practiced regularly (2/3 times a week) for an extended period (4-6 weeks) you will start noticing differences in your state of mind and sleep. 6. I am unable to sit on the floor/ unable to sit for longer duration. Can I meditate? Yes. At y2lStudio we do allow members to sit on chairs. We do not really expect most members to be seated still in the cross legged position for the entire 1 hour. We encourage members to be as comfortable as possible, to take back rest and to spread their feet whenever they want. Our philosophy is that only when the body is comfortable, will your mind be free to focus on subtle things such as your breath and thoughts. We want meditation to be accessible to one and all.
