Put on your run gear, lace up your shoes, and join Kjersti for a guided body scan meditation to be used while running or walking.
Kjersti will guide you through a gentle warm-up, and help you attune inward starting at your toes working all the way up the body to the top of your head. Finish with a guided cool-down.
This meditation is meant to help you turn your attention inward, and provide you a sense of tranquility, peace, and ease. There is no pace goal, no distance goal, just present-moment awareness as you move. It is a great tool for de-stressing and grounding ourselves in the present moment via the mind-body connection.
Kjersti is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT 53781) in the state of California and a certified Long Distance Running Coach (NAASFP). As well she is co-host of The Mental Mile Podcast. She often runs or walks with therapy clients, and trains runners in the art of mindful-running.
