Mindfulness can bring us liberation from automatism, the need for immediate response, and it allows us to experience what we experience at a different level of consciousness. From a certain perspective one could conclude that without mindfulness set at the present moment, it is difficult to live and act consciously. There are many exercises to deepen attendance, and among them all the most fundamental is the practice of deep relaxation.
Yoga is commonly associated with stretching exercises, as if it were merely a form of stretching or some other flexibility practice. However, there are few who knows that this is an extremely effective system of working with the mind, and the increased range of movements in the joints is somehow a "side effect" of this practice. By practicing yoga, we learn to use our mind in a conscious way, exerting it with the desired effect on the body and shaping the constructive perception of the world. Of course, the effects of this work are also felt in the physical body, that to my mind experiences the sensation of ease and release. After some time, we also notice the change in the way we perceive reality, ourselves and the surrounding world.
like sun wake up slowly
like ocean move gently
like air be present
like wind, like fire, like rain

Simhasana is derived from the combination of the Sanskrit words Simha(Lion) and asana (posture or pose). The position itself reminds a roaring lion and it connects the physical posture with a specific breathing technique. It’s a truly great practice to relieve tension accumulated in the chest and face as well as it helps firm the muscle on the front of the throat building collagen and preventing the appearing of wrinkles and the pulling down of the corners of the mouth (which is a sign of the mentioned muscle being contracted). In other words, this technique is not only a great fun but it also slows down aging of the skin.
