Our breath is a powerhouse; it’s our life force; it’s the catalyst that keeps us moving forward. Our breath is also a way in which we are able to build or reduce energy. I love trying various breathing techniques depending on the yoga class that I’m teaching, but we can also use our breath as our point of focus during meditation. And that is exactly what we’re going to do today.
A breath awareness meditation.
This is exactly as the name sounds, we will focus our attention and awareness on our breath. Now as I always remind my students, meditation is a practice. Some days may come easy, while others are a challenge from start to finish. As you find your mind wandering, acknowledge it, and then return back to your breath. Whether you have to return 1x, 10x, or 100x in your meditation, you are doing the practice and I commend you for showing up.
