Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body. If you are someone who has never done meditation, or perceives yourself as someone who can't do meditation, I've got good news: you can do it. Right now, in fact. EVEN IF you consider yourself EASILY DISTRACTED or CAN‘T FOCUS for too long. Make today the day you GIVE IT A GO. I’ve created a guided meditation in the UTUBE link. It is inspired by my child, who is challenged by her hamster wheel of thoughts that keep her from falling asleep. She is my greatest critic, and she gives this meditation a thumbs up, so I wanted to share it with you. EVEN IF you wind up opening your eyes, or fidgeting, or noticing your mind drift into the hamster wheel of thoughts, know you are on the right track. This is your journey! Mediation is for EVERYONE and this INCLUDES YOU.
Grounding assists our energy from swirling high in our body, and pulls it down toward the earth, where we can “find our ground, find our footing”. Go outside and find something from nature to hold in your hand for your meditation. This could be a stone, a twig, a fallen leaf, a flower from your garden. Once you find your piece of nature, take your meditation seat. at video
