About This Course
Get access to our full Balance Series. Each episode in this series is an hour long, nutrient packed class that includes breathing exercises, extended meditation, a lesson about the class topic, and time for reflection.
Episodes in this series include:
Episode 1: Cultivate Balance Using Mindful Breathing
In this episode, we review the foundations of mindfulness. We explore how to use mindfulness and mindful breathing to expand body awareness. In our extended meditation, we balance the body by spending time breathing into both sides of the body, beginning with the head and ending with the toes. Promoting balance between the right and left sides of the body gives way to healing. As we become aware of subtle shifts in the body, we realize our power to change the way we feel.
Episode 2: Grounding Practice for Body Balance
In this episode, we cultivate a balanced body using grounding and intention. You’ll learn the ways that physical balance is connected to decision making and inner balance. Together in our breathing exercises and extended meditation, we’ll use the breath to let go and center our bodies. We’ll use our intention to carry forward what has the most positive impact on our bodies and lives.
Episode 3: Center of Head and Balanced Mind
In this episode, you’ll learn about the center of head (aka neutral mind) technique. Practicing being in a neutral space gives us more mental clarity and balance. Using the center of head technique, you’ll learn how to notice your thoughts and feelings from a place of observation and non-judgment. Through this practice, we increase our awareness of where we put our attention. We grow our capacity to regulate our emotions and respond thoughtfully to stimulus.
Episode 4: Wholeness is a Balanced Heart
In this episode, we dedicate our practice to someone we love. This class is all about nurturing a balanced heart by opening the heart space. We meditate together to expand love within ourselves and extend that love to others. The heart is the connection point between ourselves and others. It’s the bridge between the physical and the spiritual. Together, we find the balance in our heart space.
Episode 5: Integrating Balance In Your Daily Life
In this episode, we’ll give you tools to integrate balance into all aspects of your life. Previously in our Balance Series, we’ve studied balance as it relates to the breath, body, mind, and heart. In this class, we combine those elements to explore ways we can create more balance everywhere. We’ll connect with different energy centers in the body in our extended meditation to release tension and promote balance.
