You don’t have to be folded up like a pretzel to meditate. Finding a position that’s just right for you is key. We’ve got 3 options for you as you learn how to meditate.
In this video, meditation instructor Carolyn Anne Budgell shows us three of the most popular body positions conducive for meditation. She shares tips on getting comfortable in a reclined position (much like you might do in savasana during a yoga class). She also shows us how to sit in a meditation in a chair and in a traditional seated position (with some variations).
If you’re trying to learn how to meditate, it’s important to find the position that works best for you and allows you to focus on the act of meditating. The less your body distracts you, the more you can focus on the meditation.
