Meditation has many neurological, physical and psychological benefits and is an integral part of a healthy yoga practice. Sitting still for several minutes each day helps to sooth the nervous system and quiet the mind, helping you to become aware of unhealthy habits, helping you focus and release tension and inviting you to open into a more spacious state of consciousness. It's easy! We'll do it together.
Week One Teaching: Sit upright on a cushion, folded blankets, or firm pillows. Set a timer (very important!). Relax your hands in your lap and focus of the inward and outward movements of your breath. Observe the actions of your mind and the sensations of your body.When you get distracted, return to the inward and outward motion of the breath, perhaps finding a specific sensation to focus your awareness, such as the the movement of breath through the nostrils, or the movement of the belly with inhalations and exhalations.
