In the first episode of the people talk podcast series, Alefiyah Siamwala, and Asma spoke about their lives, goals, and what they have had been up to.If you happened to listen in, then you would know that Alefiyah is a yoga instructor. She’s the one who teaches me yoga, and makes it interesting.
One of things that I truly enjoy while learning yoga from her is that we always start our yoga sessions with five minutes of meditation. Before we do anything else, she guides me to mindfulness. Something that really helps me focus, center, and ultimately wake up (if I am drowsy). It’s a great start to a session (of any kind, if I may).
I happened to ask Alefiyah if I could record these first five minutes of our class, where she guides me to mindfulness. She agreed, and following the recording of these first five minutes, I started using it as an experiment of sorts, to find focus in various tasks. It helped, and thence I wanted to share it here, as a podcast, with everyone. I listened to a quite a few variations of this recording with some meditation music (one of the tracks is included within the podcast).

How To Meditate To This Podcast Recording
There’s no hard, and fast rule or imposition that you’ve to have to do any of the following steps. It’s just the way that I am accustomed to meditating, while listening to her. And, you could sit in an asana, and listen to it or listen to it while driving etc.
For the sake of getting ready, incase you do happen to follow these steps, I’ve added a minute of plain, meditation music at the start of the recording.
Step 1: Stand up straight, and correct your posture so that you’re standing up right, and have no haunches.
Step 2: Join your hands. Palms facing each other; very much like a namaste. Make sure that your elbows are stuck to your sides, and not doing the chicken.
Step 3: Close your eyes.
Step 4: Take some deep breaths, and wait for Alefiyah’s voice to start guiding you through the meditation session.
That’s it. Then all you’ve to do is follow along for the next five minutes of this podcast, post which you’ll definitely feel more relieved, focused, and stress free.
