I am Grounded

During this #Vata season of fall, you might be feeling uprooted and scattered. Take a moment to reset by doing the following meditation for 1-20 minutes. However long you feel is sufficient to SLOW DOWN your mind.Lay down on your yoga mat, bed or couch. If you are prone to falling asleep, sit up right when some support behind you. 1. Start by simply noticing your breath – depth, pace and quality 2. Begin lengthening your breath by being more intentional about reducing the speed in which you inflate and deflate your chest. 3.
