Happy Friday everyone!
Those of you who take PVYU classes know that we always finish out with a 15 minute meditation at the end of every class. For me, this portion of the practice is golden time! I love flowing and moving as much as anyone else, but I think that the relaxing and peaceful feelings that seated meditation can provide are totally incomparable to anything that the physical practice has to offer.
I’ve noticed that a daily meditation practice makes me less likely to be reactive in challenging situations, helps me to sleep better at night, and even seems to affect how often I get a cold! More than anything else though, I’ve found that a regular meditation practice helps me to feel totally comfortable in my skin. When I’m finished with a practice, I often feel completely at ease when I interact with others and really content with just being me. As far as I’m concerned that feeling is more amazing than even the coolest arm-balance or deepest backbend.
This week, I thought that I’d throw out some tips that will help you meditate at home so that you can have a go at it yourself. Consider giving it a go for five to 15 minutes per day this next week and watch the stress melt away!
Let me know how it goes!
