In Sutra 1.2 Patanjali states, ‘yogash chitta vritti nirodha ha’ or योगश्चित्तवृत्तिनिरोधः॥२॥ Yoga is learning to stop the waves of thought that continue their own ‘drum-beat’ in our consciousness. How can we stop the chatter? A regular practice of Yoga is a pretty good start, as is helps to access the parasympathetic nervous system, calming down the heart and relaxing us. What is your sure-fire way to bring yourself to the present?
