It’s a fact that life can be stressful. Stress is inevitable. It starts when you get out of bed and continues until you fall asleep at night. Stress can be overwhelming at times and consume the entire day. Some days the stressors are minor but make us feel like we must climb a mountain to get through the day. Yoga can be a great way to reduce stress and maintain a calm mind. There are times, however, when you want to find more inner peace on your mat. Eight easy ways are available to create a more profound sense of tranquility and equilibrium for those days when you need more calm.
What is the difference between equilibrium and tranquility
What do equilibrium and tranquility mean, and why are these buzzwords important in yoga? These terms are often interpreted as referring to relaxation. However, these are the main goals of yoga. Equilibrium or Samatvam is a balance where a person can maintain calm focus and not be overly active or passive. Tranquility can be defined as a state of peace. Equilibrium and tranquility are both necessary to achieve a happy, healthy life. Yoga is an excellent way to cultivate mental qualities such as tranquility, stability, and equilibrium. It balances body, mind, and spirit. Yoga contains techniques to help us achieve inner peace, harmony, and a greater sense of oneness with our surroundings.
Yoga Tips to Equilibrium and Tranquility
The translation of Hatha Yoga suggests balance. Balance is achieved when we achieve equality in the opposing forces within us (hot/cold/hard/soft). Yoga is a practice that promotes tranquility and equilibrium. However, we can take additional steps to cultivate and further develop these qualities. Add one or more of these exercises to your routine when you feel like you need an extra boost of calmness.
Alternate nasal breathing can be a very effective way to calm yourself down. You can do it before or after an argument. It’s also good to try when you are feeling anxious. This pranayama creates peace and harmony by clearing and balancing solar energy (Pingala) and lunar energy (ida). This calming breath can be used to begin or end your asana session.
Mantra is one of the fastest ways to collect scattered energies. The mantra can be chanted silently, aloud, or with a mala. Those who use the mala will find that it is charged with intention over time and gives a feeling of well-being when touching the beads. It is a powerful mantra that cultivates a sense of inner awareness. After several breath cycles, the mantra can become hamsa (also known as White Swan meditation). Chanting mantras can help calm and focus the mind at the beginning of practice. While holding poses, you can use mantras to stay focused and present.
The most common mudras use the fingers and hands to close pathways of pranic energy. This allows the energy to circulate through the body. Anjali Mudra is a gesture of prayer that balances by applying equal pressure to the left and right palms. For Bhairava mudra, rest your hands on your lap, right over left, palms up. This mudra, named after the fierce side of Shiva, is so natural and simple that it can be used for pranayama, meditation, or a subtle energetic tune-up while seated in an airplane seat or at a meeting table. In the female version, Bhairavi the left hand is at the top. As you become more aware, you will notice that the feeling tone of the two variations is different.
When we try Vrksasana (Tree Pose), or Virabhadrasana III (Warrior III), it becomes clear that achieving balance without first finding inner peace is impossible. The mind calms down when you focus on drishti. The breath will calm down as the mind settles. Then the body will become the teacher. As we do this, we practice the niyama of svadhyaya in asana. Svadhyaya, which is often translated as “self-study” or the study scripture, and balance poses, in particular, can help us to understand one of the seemingly opposing themes of yoga: inaction within the action (Bhagavadgita 4:18). Try one of these techniques the next time you’re feeling off-kilter. You’ll find that, like Goldilocks’, there is a perfect middle ground between “too firm” and “too supple.”

Yoga Nidra is an ancient Sanskrit word that roughly translates to “yogic sleeping.” However, it is different from the sleep you experience at night. It is a guided meditation that allows “conscious awareness of your inner space” and is similar to Shavasana. This deep relaxation is similar to hypnosis and can promote calmness at the end of asana practices or independently.
