A bearded yogi, deep in the Himalayas, withdrawn from the distractions of society, sits perched cross-legged as he peacefully watches the sunrise and set– full, deep breaths of fresh air fill his lungs and calm his mind.
If only we could all withdraw so easily from the constant chatter of work, kids, friends and of course, our own minds! There is an old saying, “For a long, healthy life, you must meditate 20 minutes a day. If you don’t have time for this, you must meditate for an hour.”
In case you have been told otherwise, let us spill the beans… Meditation is for everyone. There are many doors to meditation and mindfulness; each one offering practitioners a way to realize their own natural ability to quiet the mind and the ego.
But how can you find an hour to meditate, when you also want to work out? Take a class that fuses the physical aspects of wellness with the mental focus– in other words, discover your moving meditation. Check out classes in Tai Chi, Yoga and Pilates (offered right here at Energy Movement Center)– and for a deeper exploration, try our new Monthly Community Meditation or one of our Meditation Workshops.
Check out all of the mindful, wonderful, varieties of meditation we have coming up this Spring!
