If you have laid the foundation with your yoga practice, all you need to do is to ask yourself the question, then learn to go inside for the answer. What yoga is doing is lessening the interference, so that you can tune in and more accurately hear that inner wisdom.

"The point is not just eat, drink, and be merry, with no consequences, but it's having a moment-to-moment response to the energy," says yoga teacher Shiva Rea. She uses the example of chocolate: It can be eaten addictively, but if someone offers it to you at the right time, it's an "absolute alchemical and divine experience invoked with meaning." The same idea can also be applied to sex: When it's done with the right intention—the intention of uniting opposite energies—it can be used to express joy and unity.
finding the correct physical alignment in asanas allows energy to flow more freely and ultimately promotes creativity and freedom both on and off the mat. "Instead of trying to control or subjugate the body, you try to align it with the bigger flow of the universe, so that you can experience bliss."

the rib cage hangs from the upper arms and shoulders; the spine and pelvis hang from the rib cage; and the legs hang from the spine and pelvis.
The rectus abdominis is the muscle that creates the familiar appearance of "six-pack abs." It is composed of several segments embedded in a sheath of tough connective tissue that connects the base of the sternum (the xiphoid process and nearby cartilage) to the middle of the lower front pelvis (the pubis).
iliacus muscle, which connects the front of the pelvic bowl to the upper thigh; the other is the psoas, which connects the lower spine to the upper thigh.
Since all the hip flexor muscles use the front of the pelvis or the lower spine as their anchor points, they can lift the legs off the floor only if the front of the pelvis remains lifted and the lumbar spine stays flexed.

Becoming more free to live with ourselves confers on us a greater sense of empowerment and joy. Our actions become more meaningful because we know their true purpose. "Freedom to" gives perspective and depth, the feeling that what we do does matter. The world's everyday indignities bother us less, and from our more grounded experience we naturally act more decisively and compassionately. In a complementary way, as we unravel or attenuate the causes of negative experiences, we will feel free from them because we understand more deeply how our experience has evolved.
When the life has gone out of a commitment, it can become a life eater, a black hole that sucks your joy, your love, your creativity. Stability (supportive, grounding, depth producing) turns into stagnation (swampy, deadening, sticky).
One is simply the feeling of deadness in a relationship or project. Everything in life has cycles of birth, growth, decline, and death. When something feels dead, that needs to be acknowledged. If it isn't, the dead feeling begins to spread through your life. If you're willing to explore the deadness and listen to the messages it gives you, you will begin to find out what is behind it, and what you need to do about it.
so I usually recommend sitting with the situation long enough to bring the emotional level, the heart level of your being, together with the practical, analytic mind level.

In fact, being able to give a logical, coherent account of one's deepest experience has always been considered a vital part of a yogi's development. We cannot hope to reach our full potential without developing effective practices based on sound thinking.

"But there's a completely different way of looking at it. It's a machine that's constantly remodeling itself based on how you use it. When we start to lose our cognitive abilities, it's not so much a problem of the brain's physical condition but a result of how it's been used."

Often when you feel intensity in one particular area, it draws all your attention there. The entire mind becomes occupied by the little drama of the right shoulder, and you may forget you even have a whole body. Doesn't that sound similar to how we sometimes live life, getting stuck in the small stuff and missing the big picture? When we do that, we have a harder time keeping things in perspective and making smart choices.
Rather than going for extremes, see if you can discover subtle shifts that might begin to even out your various sensations as well as your responses to sensations. Find balance by letting your awareness spread through your whole body. Observe what happens with your breath and your mind as your body finds balance and creates a container—not too tight and not too loose—of equanimity.

I just talk to people in the office. A lot of people find me very unfriendly because I dont usually smile. So in order to break that imagine, I take the trouble to talk to people. Able to talk to people also good, as I can know what are the operations in the rest of the office.

By keeping the ear and shoulder one straight line, would it not make the way I sit look stiff?
Some held their heads forward with their upper chests slightly collapsed, or they shortened the backs of their necks, creating an excess of upper thoracic activity. In either case they exhibited little lengthening in the area between the side floating ribs and hips as their legs moved.
To practice hatha yoga in its entirety is to focus on translating what your body learns in yoga into your overall patterns of standing, sitting, and walking. The goal is not to achieve some ideal of perfect movement. The point is to discover how you can move with ease while working within your own limitations.
Without having a view of the body that inspires you to do so, it's hard to stay focused on your body in daily life. The energy for the work has to have a motivating source. One such motivating source can be the purely practical goal of maximizing the health and ease of your body.
Instead the idea is to be fully awake to the body, accepting it as it is, while at the same time not imposing any old patterns of movement on it.
