For those moments when scarcity creeps in and you feel like you don't have enough, this meditation will remind you of your own abundance. Focus on becoming a receiver of gratitude, then draw it toward your heart center to hold it there.
When you need to decompress from a stressful event, this meditation will help you breathe your way to peace. You'll gradually expand your inhalations and exhalations, breathing into areas of tension and making space between what happened and the present moment.
Find your rhythm with a basic sequence of classic poses that continues to repeat and build. Drop into a deep flow state as you cycle through warriors, standing splits, and handstand hops, then settle into bridge, reclined pigeon, and supta baddha konasana as you cool down.
