    The Path of Awakening: Walking Meditation in Pandemic Times

    The Path of Awakening: Walking Meditation in Pandemic Times

    Walking meditation is something I can take refuge in right now. Feeling my feet on the earth, one and then the next. Sometimes I’ll simply listen. Sometimes I’ll use a breath pattern. Affirmation and mantra connected to my breath, in rhythm with my steps. I hope you’ll join me on the path of awakening, and experience a sense of gratitude, purpose and mindfulness during your walking meditation.

    Practice Together From a Distance 2: Grounding and Impermanence

    It’s normal to feel contracted right now. Yoga and meditation can help! On the day the gyms closed in NYC, I taught this down-regulating, calming practice to address the inevitable discomfort arising from Coronavirus anxiety. In this slow, gentle flow, we begin in constructive rest: lie down on your back with your knees up. As you listen, connect with your inner teacher and deepen into present moment. Take refuge in the rhythm of your breath, and awareness of your body. Nothing here is medical advice. Find other ways to stay connected at healthyhappyyoga.com

    Practice Together From a Distance 1: Recalling Joy

    We’re all in this together. Let’s remain kind to ourselves and all beings. Let’s stay connected. In this unprecedented time, leaning into each other and our practice will happen in the virtual space. In this slow, gentle asana and pranayama flow, we begin in supported fish. You can lie back with your shoulder blades and head supported by a blanket, blocks, couch cushion, or simply lie on your back with knees up. Please don’t worry about perfection in your practice, and only do what feels right for your body. As you listen, connect with your inner teacher and deepen into present moment. Access sense memories of gratitude, contentment, and joy, to strengthen your neural connections to those emotions. Nothing here is medical advice.

Thank you.

I’ve been thinking about these things a lot lately and your experience with moving stress from the limbus brain out of your body is really helpful.
