This is a seated meditation practice that focuses on the breath. Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight, your eyes closed, and your hands resting in your lap with your palms up.
Focus your attention on the sensation of your breath as it flows in and out of your nose.
Notice the coolness of the air as it enters your nose, and the warmth of the air as it leaves your nose.
Notice the rise and fall of your stomach as you breathe in and out.
Allow your mind to be still and focus on the sensations of your breath.
When your mind begins to wander, simply bring your attention back to the breath.
Stay seated for 5-10 minutes, then slowly stand up and stretch your body.
Yoga is a great way to stay healthy, and there are plenty of resources to help you get started.
