Morning Meditation

Balance. Silence. Alignment.

Morning Meditation with Nature

In that deep space we find our inner wisdom, a place of balance and grounding. Our uniqueness allows us to stand on our own aligning with our soul’s purpose. In nature, scientist and nature enthusiast explain this one-legged standing phenomena as conserving heat (thermoregulation), fatigue reduction and standing equilibrium.

Portland, Oregon, licensed physical therapist and certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, Julie Gudmestad, writes,  “Obviously, keeping your equilibrium in standing balances requires fine coordination of several muscle groups. But just as important as muscle training is training the mind to be focused, present in the moment and in the pose. Over time, balancing poses teach the mind to be centered, a benefit that spills over into the rest of your life, making you better able to concentrate at work, be present with your loved ones, and savor the experiences of your life.” Online Yoga Journal, Help for Standing Balances (Take a Stand).
