Brisbane - a relaxing city? How can we relax more? Why is it important to relax? Is it just not being active, maybe even lazy? But I want to be fit! What about being fit, yet relaxed and crystal clear present to what is happening in your life? Yoga has come up with a solution: First learn how to relax. We have lost the skill of relaxing. We think that sleep is relaxation, but it is not so. Relaxation is becoming aware of the influences of the environment and not allowing our personality not to be stressed by these external influences. This state of relaxation can be learned and practiced.
