If you like a guided relaxation at the end of your yoga class, you will most likely enjoy this 🙂
“I Can’t Meditate” is one of the most common things I hear from new clients.
The most popular reasons being; “I can’t think of nothing,”I don’t have time”, “I don’t make time,” and “I don’t know how.”
This online course was developed specifically with these issues in mind.
That’s why so many of these meditations are 10 minutes or less. Once you get the hang of the technique, you can do it for 1 second, or all day. It’s all about training the mind. Here we are giving your brain something very purposeful to think about rather then it being a runaway train. The techniques are short, simple and easy to apply.
For those of you that ‘never have time: Try meditating at red lights (don’t close your eyes!), when you are in the rest room, or when transitioning from one activity to another. You can also work it into activities that you are already doing like creating a spreadsheet, or hammering nails. You are probably meditating already and might not even know it. Any activity with a singular focus is a meditation. From mowing the lawn in a straight line to painting a picture. This means everything can become a meditation when you apply presence, concentration, and mindfulness. My favorite time to meditate is when I hit the snooze button in the morning, and in the bathtub at night.
Difficulty making it a routine? I recommend experimenting with different times of day to see what works the best for you. Some people prefer to meditate at the start of their day, other’s before bed. Sometimes it’s not at 5am everyday 365 days a year, maybe it’s a few times a week. The key is finding out what works the best for you. Having these recordings at your fingertips will facilitate this process.
The Process of Discovery. Sometimes when exploring our inner self, there is a light shined on things we do not care for, or want to change. Brining these things into the forefront of awareness allows us transform them. Making meditation a regular part of your routine will increase it’s effectiveness and improve outcomes. Here is more information about Goal Setting & Cycles of Change.
So you’ve tried it before, but it never stuck? Maybe you were’t ready…Or maybe you did learn some things about yourself that you can use as stepping stones during this course….Like maybe you just weren’t that committed? It’s ok!! That’s why a go at you own pace course is ideal. You can do when you feel like it, or make a structured routine. The most important thing is that you find the meditation that is to most effective for you. They all have the same end goal, just different ways of getting there.

Did you know that Meditation is one of the 8 Limbs of Yoga? It is an integral part on the path of reaching Samadhi. The Sanskrit word for bliss, peace, fulfillment, and union. Samadhi is the ultimate goal of Yoga. When most people think yoga, they think postures. Postures were originally created to prepare the body and mind for meditation.
