Standing Meditation

Marc practicing standing meditation in the garden and giving himself a hug

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.
