Steps for Guiding Meditation

Meditation is a practice that unites all parts of the self. Influence your students to move beyond the usual outer layers of being into the interior with these practice tips.

Meditation Benefits

Meditation gives people a chance to become present in the moment where they can call back all of their energy to the moment and gain a sense of cohesiveness. From this place of union they can then utilize their personal power in a way that is supportive and productive.

Teaching Tip

People become more responsive when the benefits are presented. Start the meditation session by mentioning two or three benefits. Make it personal by sharing a benefit that you have experienced.

Bring Balance Between the Front of the Body and the Back of the Body

1. Place your hands on your shoulders and take a breath in. Feel how chest lifts and the sides of your body lengthen. Keep that length as you exhale.

2. Place your hands on the top of your head. Take a breath in. As you exhale press upwards into your hands. As your neck lengthens upwards your shoulders relax down.

(Try this yourself and feel what happens in your own body.)

Teaching Note

Feeling the body and tuning into the environment helps to bring people away from the thinking mind. Guide people to listen to the sounds, smell the air, feel their clothing/hair/all of the things touching their body.


Activate the Deep Core Muscles

As you inhale the breath moves in and down filling your lungs. The pelvic floor responds with a soft expansiveness.

With the exhale the pelvic floor draws gently upward the muscles in the lower back and abdomen tone as the chest softens downward to give rise to the out breath being freed up.

Alignment Tip

Emphasize extending from the upper arms (triceps and biceps) down towards the sides of the hips to bring lift, length and tone to the torso.

Pack your swimsuit and join me in Nicaragua. Quiet, uncrowded beach with nice waves, pretty shells and soothing sunsets. Good food, nice people and a relaxed vibe. All good for nurturing your body and realigning your mind.

Get your blanket to gain more length in your torso, access the strength of your shoulders, feel more ability in lift off and benefit from more depth of breath.

You are going to sweat and feel your body. Your muscles will strain and the stories of your life held within the tension will rise to the surface and bubble out with your sweat...your body will tell you stories and bring old patterns to the surface....from the shadow parts they will move out and become exposed. The moment of empowerment will come. Your sweat will trickle away the layers that have subdued your power...your own salt will heal old wounds and leave you seasoned, stronger, lighter, more clear from burning out the illusions the old stories told you. You will rest ...recover....and feel more powerful...you will move forward and influence others to do the same.

Come:April 22 Yoga Teacher Training
