Walking Meditation Classes
Looking to put a fresh spin on your meditation practice?
The warm weather makes us want to get outside! We love to freshen up our mindfulness teachings with a simple walking meditation practice.
Am I just going to walk around in circles?
No! Participants quickly learn that it’s much more than just walking; it’s a meditation technique to connect you to the present moment through mindful movement. Walking meditation invites you to use movement as a tool to slow down, focus your attention, and calm your mind ... one step at a time.
What does science say about walking meditation?
Science has proven that meditation is good for your brain, and walking meditation is no different. Walking meditation is proven to reduce anxiety, lower depression, and boost your immune system. Want a happier and healthier office? Get 'em walking!
Do I have to be walking on a special path outside?
Nope. You can be outside in nature or inside your office building. You can be walking the busy city streets or strolling along a dedicated walking path (like the picture above). The beautiful thing about this practice is that it really teaches you to incorporate mindfulness into your day-to-day life by bringing more awareness to the simple action of walking.
Whether you're walking to your car, walking up stairs, or walking over to the copier at your office, you can practice walking mindfully. In fact, Nicole wrote all about how she practices walking meditation in her blog post - check it out!
