Merging Mindfulness Meditation And Movement

Incorporating mindfulness meditation with movement is an active meditation option that I’m convinced many of you would find appealing. There are so many different ways to meditate. While it’s easy to think of meditation as a sedentary activity, you’re not limited to sitting still.

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way.
