Why don’t you have a seat and stay awhile? If you think meditation is boring, hard, pointless, or too time consuming, this episode is for you.
This week, Jason and I discuss everything meditation. We unpack why it’s important for yoga students to meditate. Plus, we’ll give some practical tips to start if you’re new to the practice (or start again if not very consistent). We promise, you’ll be glad you did!
PS: Jason has a brand new program on yogaglo that’s designed for people who don’t yet have a consistent meditation practice. It’s six classes and super-straightforward. Check it out here!
Highlights from the episode:
* The difference between a person’s identity and their habits + how to untangle the two in order to make regular meditation more likely
* Some of the common fears (and excuses!) that keep people from meditating
* Why meditation is an important part of a well-rounded yoga practice and if there’s anyone who shouldn’t meditate
* Jason’s approach to teaching seated meditation and how it’s similar to how he teaches asana
* Plus, we talk about our personal meditation practice, who we’ve studied with, and how it’s helped us
