Embodying Gratitude: A 5 Minute Guided Meditation / All Levels
People are not grateful because they’re happy, they’re happy because they are grateful.
-Brother David Steindl-Rast, Benedictine monk, teacher, and author
Research shows that gratitude practices:
• Divert attention from stress and anxiety
• Strengthen social ties and increase pro-social motivation, helping us connect with others
and feel less isolated and lonely
• Create more activity in the hypothalamus and activate brain regions associated with dopamine
• Help build a more approach oriented brain which leads to greater resiliency in coping with stress
60-Minute Vinyasa Practice / All LEVELS
Practice with me in Costa Rica! This class was recorded on retreat and if you listen closely, you will hear the lovely sounds of the ocean, the birds and Honey, the yoga dog.
Body Sensing: A 6 minute guided meditation / All LEVELS
In this practice I will guide you through each space in the body and invite you to pay attention to the senses you experience. Interoception: noticing present moment sensations, builds self-agency. Research shows that “body-based work, such as yoga, may act as a treatment bridge, increasing a sense of awareness, safety and mastery over one's body while building skills to effectively interpret and tolerate physiological and affective states”.
This meditation is a simple way to both relax and increase your own body-centered awareness. You can do this in any posture that feels comfortable.
