Meditation through Yoga

This simple meditation relies on the breath in order to calm your mind, body and feelings.

Sit comfortably, cross-legged or in a seat. Sit tall, with your spine straight and shoulders relaxed. Keep your chest open. Rest your hands with palms up on the knees. Touch the index finger lightly to the thumb. Relax your face, jaw and stomach. Allow the tongue to rest on the roof, behind the front teeth. Allow your eyes to close lightly.

Inhale and exhale slowly, deeply and smoothly through your nose. Inhale from the stomach and gently rise up to the chest. Let go of all distractions as the breath deepens. Allow your mind to concentrate on the breath. Feel the breath moving through your body. It will pass through your nose, throat, lungs, and windpipe. Feel your body rise and fall with every breath. As much as you can, bring your attention and awareness to your body each moment. Let go of the thoughts as they return to your mind and bring the focus back to your body and breath.

Spend 10-20 minutes practicing this Meditation. Inhale palms together and exhale gently to finish. Spend a few moments before continuing your day.
