Usually mediation is practiced while sitting in a meditation pose. But actually we don’t necessarily have to sit. We can meditate in every relaxing pose like hanging Sirshasana or Shoulderstand. All we have to do is being concentrated, focused and inward going. We can just watch our sensations or the breath. That’s it. In case we need to discover something, if we need answers, then we can use the inversions to explore. By putting the attention to the problem, we’ll discover the nature of reality. Inversions help us to see and to understand.

What is the right time to practice meditation or asanas? Asana practice is waking us up. Some people get up and they are awake immediately. Others take a long time to wake up and get into the rhythm. These people, the Kafas, should not meditate or do Pranayam in the morning because they risk to fall asleep again. They should meditate after they have moved the body a bit and are more awake. Basically Pranayama and Meditation have to be done when we are completely awake because this is the practice that requires the most subtle awareness.
