Many wonder why it is necessary to meditate after practicing Yoga asanas/ postures. One of the many benefits of practicing yoga asanas/ postures is the fact that it allows us to slip into meditation effortlessly. Meditation being one of the main aspects of Yoga, it’s essential that we sit for meditation after practicing Yoga asanas and pranayama; else it is like preparing our dinner but not eating it!
