Post #64: Yoga Is Movement Meditation
Yoga is considered movement meditation. For some of us, we are more drawn to movement meditation rather than seated meditation. Sometimes, we crave one over the other.
When I was in my 20’s and 30’s all I wanted to practice was yoga as movement meditation, but once I had kids I noticed that I craved more of the seated meditation. Can’t imagine why! lol Probably because with kids we don’t really have a chance to sit down, and we always want what we can’t have, right?
Both yoga as movement meditation and seated meditation are exceptional practices and help take us beyond the chatter of the mind to a place in which we have access to higher guidance, deep peace, and total contentment.
Watch this short 3 minute video explaining hatha yoga as movement meditation. If you are someone who is under a lot of stress or going 90-to-nothing a-lot with kids, work, etc. then hatha yoga is the perfect way to clear your mind and re-balance your body.
And now for some practice!!
I’ve included the yoga vignette: Vinyasa Flow Quick Cardio, an 11-minute yoga practice to help you remember to breathe through the practice. Yoga trains us to breathe through a tough practice so that we remember to breathe through daily stresses that come up for us.
Sink into this practice and allow the movement to bring you deep into meditation.
