Easy meditation exercises
I haven’t explored the subject of meditation much in this blog. And it’s not to take away from this side of yoga… My approach to this practice has been, and continues to be, very gradual. I am a very active woman; sometimes I even describe myself as a bit of a whiner, and I tend to get myself into dynamics of stress, trying to cope with many more tasks than I really can as a working mother.
One of the reasons why I practise Ashtanga Vinyasa is because through movement and physical effort, synchronised with breathing, I find it much easier to enter a state of meditation, or a state of complete presence and mindfulness.
Perhaps my block about static meditation is laziness. I still find it hard to stop and sit down to meditate. And since I believe in the benefits of this practice, to overcome this mental barrier I have set myself the goal of at least sitting in the lotus position, whether I do all the exercises that I am showing you today or not.
I hope that these exercises help you to incorporate meditation as a habit in your daily life. If you want to read more about other types of meditation, feel free to take a look at one of my previous posts on this subject.
