Hi Body Book Community!
I’m Angela Clark, co-owner of Mala Yoga, a studio in Brooklyn dedicated to helping busy people take a moment to breathe, stretch and strengthen. I’m a yoga teacher and I study meditation with The Three Doors, a program created by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. I love teaching people about the body-mind connection, so if you want to find some stillness into your modern, hectic life, keep reading!
It’s so important–and so possible–to find time even in the most crowded of schedules to focus our minds and move our bodies. The videos that you’re going to see from Mala are going to be all about giving you the tools to you need to integrate meditation and movement into your every day.
We’ll start with an intro to connecting breath, mind and body …
Standing on the subway, sitting on the freeway, stuck in a cubicle or on the longest ever line… now you can take a moment to connect your body and your mind, just by breathing. You can’t always change a situation. But you can shift how you respond to the situation.
Use this two-minute meditation tool to give yourself a head start towards composure even in the most stressful of moments.
Tell us in the comments below if you practice meditation, or if this is new to you. What was your first experience like?
