Grounding Meditation (with Cosmo)

For this practice, we begin by feeling our body’s connection to the ground below. I’ll invite you to soften – allow yourself to be held, supported. Slowly, we make our way into the body, feeling the breath enter to expand the chest. I invite you to feel your bones and muscles supporting you from within. And finally, we connect the external and internal with the breath.

Loving-Kindness Meditation

In this video, I offer a short explanation of loving-kindness meditation and how I incorporate the practice in my life. I also offer you a 10-minute guided meditation that you can practice anywhere and at any time.

Standing Meditation

Meditation is central to my yoga practice. Especially, in weeks like this. The school year is in full swing, there’s a hurricane off the coast of my hometown, and once again, we’ve seen horrific gun violence in our country. I figured it would be nice to change the pace and place of our practice this week.

Join me on my deck for this standing meditation practice. Take time to feel yourself standing tall, strong, and balanced. Notice the breath and just be.
