I teach weekly yoga and meditation classes at the Healing WELL. My goal is to provide the participants with tools that can make them more resilient in their daily lives. These are some of the exercises I regularly use.
A body scan meditation is a deep investigation into the moment-to-moment experiences of the body.
The good old calming three part breath.
Alternate nostril breathing for balance.
Releasing agitation, anxiety, or anger with the bee breath.
Emotional Freedom Techniques
It sounds too simple to be true, but lightly tapping on ‘meridian points’ on the body (similar to acupuncture) can release tension and negative emotions.
A simple three step exercise to practice how to be more kind to yourself in times of suffering.
Yoga with tennis balls
For this meditation, you use the flame of a candle as the focus for you meditation.
