*FREE* Guided Meditation Saturday January 23rd at 11 am

Join us this Saturday at 11, as we practice our circular breath.

Focusing your attention on your breath has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide a sense of calm.

Those of you who have attended our yoga, Barre, Pilates or Energy Flow classes this month have experienced a short version of this meditation. This Saturday we will do a 20-30 minute variation.

Things seem extraordinary, novel, chaotic and out of control right now. One idea that is bringing me some peace is that we have gone through this before, and we made it!

The flu pandemic from 100 years ago, changes in political leaders, even violence and unrest in our town. While this feels catastrophic right now, could this be a loop that has happened before and will happen again? You know, time is a flat circle, reincarnation, deja vu. Even if none of these concepts resonate with you, would you be willing to sit with us for 20-30 minutes (or however long you like) and focus on your breath?

When the world feels out of control, your breath is one thing you do have control over.

I record these (audio only) so you may tune in with your video on or off, and you may mute yourself if you like.

Here are a few of our past meditations:

Meditation Workshop Saturday August 1st At Noon

Reduce anxiety, calm your nervous system, and learn easy to use self soothing techniques that help you get control of your breath and your thoughts. Often, we can’t control what’s going on in the world, but we can control how we react to it. A good place to start is with your breath. If I am feeling stressed, taking a big deep breath buys me some time, and gives me some space to figure out my next move, and think about what I should (or shouldn’t) say.

What does stress feel like in your body? Does your stomach ache, do your eyes dart around, does your heart race, does your jaw tighten up? Noticing body sensations is another great step in taking control of your body and mind.

Join me Saturday August 1st at noon as safely and gently explore these sensations, and play with breathing techniques and short guided meditations. This is a great workshop for those new to meditation, or those of you experiencing sleep issues (or, anybody feeling stressed to the max right now).
