How to Move and Meditate

June 8, 2024

Meditation is a powerful practice that can help people manage stress and anxiety, improve their mental health, sleep better and more. But a lot of us don’t have the time or ability to sit in one spot for meditation—which is why movement meditation is the perfect fit.

This type of meditative movement blends the calm of meditation with the energy of exercise, creating a unique blend of wellbeing for your mind and body. It’s easy to integrate into your daily routine, and a great alternative for those who have trouble sitting still for longer periods of time.

During a move and meditate session, you’ll be aware of every movement your body makes and how it feels. You can focus on the sensation of the muscles in your arms, legs, or belly moving, and even notice parts of your body that you might not normally pay attention to like your hips or cheek. You can also tune into your breath and rhythm to synchronize your mind and body.

To start, find a space where you won’t be disturbed. Getting comfortable is key, and make sure you have clothes that are comfy enough to move in. You can play calming music in the background to set the mood. Take a few deep breaths to slow down and become present in the moment. Then begin by resting your weight on the floor, noticing the feeling of your feet on the ground. Slowly shift your weight to the right foot, then to the left foot, and back to equal weight on all four feet again.
