    An Extended Body Scan

    An Extended Body Scan

    As a special treat, today I’m sharing an extended body scan practice designed to help you settle into your body and create an embodied space with intentional breathing. It is just the trick for getting over a little post-trip jet lag, for times when you’re feeling like you're not quite in your body, or if you're feeling a little fried or wired. In those cases, a practice like this can really help you reconnect. 
     
    Find a safe, comfortable position where you can truly be with yourself—whether that’s on your back, lying on your side, or even sitting up—and tune in as I walk you through, step-by-step, this 30-minute extended body scan.
