Increase Meditation by Using it During Yoga: Here's How


Incense is a popular tool for helping people meditate. In fact, there are many benefits of using incense during yoga and meditation. Incense can help you focus on the positive elements in your life and become more aware of what's going on around you. 


You'll also experience a sense of calmness while burning incense because it produces positive effects on your brain waves and emotions.

Incense is becoming more and more popular among yogis

Incense is becoming more and more popular among yoga practitioners because it’s a great way to enhance your meditation, whether you are doing it alone or in a group.


Incorporating incense into your yoga routine can be as simple as lighting a cone while performing your poses, or even lighting one before class starts. There are many different types of incense available today--some are made specifically for meditation and others are intended for general use. So if you're not sure where to start, here are some ideas:


  • Incense sticks - These come in all kinds of scents with varying degrees of intensity; there's something here for everyone! You can even find ones that smell like food (like cinnamon) or flowers (such as lavender). Once lit, these sticks will burn slowly over time.
  • Incense cones - These are similar to incense sticks but they come in cone-shaped pieces. They burn just as slowly as sticks do, so you can enjoy their fragrance for a long period of time. Some people prefer cones over sticks because they don't have to worry about holding onto a stick while meditating. Plus, cones look really cool!

Incense has a long history of use in Eastern culture.

Incense has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years, as well as meditation and prayer. In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism, incense is used as part of purification rituals to cleanse the air and body.


In Hinduism, it's believed that incense helps you achieve higher states of consciousness by clearing your mind of all thoughts so you can meditate more deeply on the object that represents your goal (or God). For example, if someone wanted to meditate on love, they would burn rose-scented sticks because roses are associated with love!


Incense is also used for cleansing the mind and body. It's believed that by burning incense, you're releasing negative energy from your body so you can feel calmer and more relaxed.

You can use incense during yoga and meditation.

Incense can be used in a variety of ways to enhance your yoga or meditation practice. Here are some suggestions:


  • Light incense before starting the class, then let it burn throughout the session. This will help set a mood and create an atmosphere that is conducive to relaxation.
  • Use incense sticks or cones during difficult poses, such as arm balances and backbends, where you need all of your focus on staying balanced rather than holding onto any additional objects like blocks or straps (which may require gripping). The scent will help keep you grounded while also distracting from any discomfort caused by holding a difficult position for too long--and it can also improve concentration!
  • Put on some soothing music. There are many types of music that can be used during meditation, but the most popular choices are classical or instrumental pieces. These tend to be calming and peaceful, which is why they work so well for yoga or meditation practice.


The benefits of using incense during yoga and meditation include helping you focus, relieving stress, creating a peaceful environment, and improving your mood.

How to use incense for yoga meditation

Though there are many ways to try using incense for deeper meditation, we’ve found the simplest way to do it that even beginners can do from the comfort of their homes.


  • Place your incense cone in your waterfall burner.
  • Get into a comfortable position and focus on watching the smoke as it rises and falls in front of you.
  • Watch for thoughts entering your mind, but don't judge them or try to push them away--just be aware of their presence and allow them to pass through without engaging with them too much (this can be challenging!).
  • Use this time for meditation practice by staying focused on whatever is happening right now: breathing deeply, feeling relaxed muscles throughout your body, and listening closely for sounds around you.


The benefits of using incense during yoga and meditation are many. You can use it to help you focus, relieve stress, create a peaceful environment, and improve your mood. Incense has been used for thousands of years in Eastern culture because it has so many benefits. 


It is safe to use as long as it's not burned too close or inhaled too deeply into your lungs, which can cause health problems over time. We hope this article gave you some ideas on how to incorporate incense into your practice!
