The Gifts of Yin Body Meditation1

Take a breath.

Notice how the air flows in and out of your body.

Don’t do anything. Just breathe. And notice.

Take 3 full breaths. That means 3 natural and full inhales and 3 natural and full exhales.

Notice. Breathe.

Take 3 full breaths. Inhale and exhale through your nose.

Notice where you feel your ribcage every time you inhale.

Breathe.

Notice your body’s comfort level. Tweak or change your position to be comfortable.

Take 3 breaths.

Notice what your bellybutton does during your inhale.

Notice what your bellybutton does during your exhale.

Take 3 noisy inhales and 3 quiet exhales.

Notice how the inside of your nose and throat feels.

Take 3 quiet inhales and 3 noisy exhales.

Notice your body’s comfort level. Tweak or change.

Take 3 quiet inhales and 3 quiet exhales.

Notice your feet.

Notice the space between your toes.

Now:

YAAAAWWWWN

your lungs and the rest of your parts and pieces.

Yawn… feline-like; slow, languid, lazy, liquid.

Move on to your next adventure.
