Find yourself a comfortable seated position either on the floor or on a chair for this guided meditation that will show you how you can ground your energy in your body in less than 5 minutes.
This is a very simple meditation that anchors your awareness and releases tension around the spine and from the mind.
As we go about our days and our lives our muscles hold onto tension that we don’t realise and our joints become compressed without us noticing. This can be due to various forms of stress and often from sitting or standing in one position for long periods of time.
This short and sweet guide is a great place to start building an internal awareness of your body’s response to the world around you so that you can let go of unnecessary tension and open your body back up to optimum flow of nutrients.
Body Scan Meditation
Find yourself somewhere peaceful and quiet to lay down. This simple guided meditation walks you through your bones, muscles and joints giving you the tools to start scanning your awareness for excess tension in the body.
This is a great meditation to use at the end of your yoga/ Calligraphy Yoga or Calligraphy Health training session during still meditation or savasana. It could also be a good one to listen to before bed for a good night’s sleep.
Building body awareness is a major key to building trust with your cells. Over time your body scanning will naturally become more detailed and tailored to you.
As you allow your mind to reconnect with your body this guided body scan will leave you feeling grounded, calm, peaceful and safe. Often people experience a sense of melting into the ground or as though they just had a really good massage.

Belly Breathing Meditation
Find yourself somewhere peaceful and quiet to lay down.This is the meditation you want to master so that it can be the effortless undercurrent to any other meditation.
Belly breathing is my go-to cure for many things: belly-aches, headaches, a sore back. It has been the quickest, easiest and most effective way to relieve stress, tension and anxiety. Once you learn to belly breath, it will feel amazing. You’ll want to do more of it and you’ll learn that you can do it anywhere. If you can spend time belly breathing 20 minutes a day you will notice lots of positive shifts in your attitude, focus and general wellbeing.
It can be hard to focus for 20 minutes if you’re new to meditation, so start with 5 minutes and build your way up. You’ll naturally find that you want to spend longer and longer doing this meditation.
Happy belly breathing!
