More and more people are realizing the importance of a meditation practice as a part of getting fit and being healthy.
These days sports teams have meditation coaches and job sites are creating meditation rooms. I have been teaching meditation for 15 years and this is the first time it seems like there is a general consensus that meditating can be a very helpful for people trying to get their bodies to perform at a higher levels.
As someone who meditates a lot, my journey has been a bit the opposite, in the last few years I have been learning how to incorporate more exercise into my life to improve my meditation practice, and making sure I am fit enough to meditate some more!
So it was very exciting and fun when I was invited by my friend Chris Jakubiak owner of Hustle Fitness Gym at 2625 N Halsted St, (where I recently joined), to talk about InVision and the meditation style we teach.
I lead a meditation to their staff and clients as part of a Rejuvenation and Recovery Seminar. The main question was how to recover from a strenuous workout? And my response is that after a good workout is the perfect time to use meditation to center and focus your attention.
After a workout your body is relaxed and able to handle being still longer than in normal circumstances. Even for a beginner meditating at this time, for a few minutes can be used to refresh and reset your mindset and your picture of yourself in your life.
In the seminar, I talked about the importance of being in the right state of mind to achieve your goals as well as thinking of meditation as a workout for your perception/mind/emotions.
I love how open to meditation everyone was at the Hustle Fitness Recovery Seminar. I am very grateful to be invited to be part of an event like this!
