Richard Miller, the founder of iRest, was featured in Yoga Journal and the article included TWO FREE BODYSENSING PRACTICES :
Meditate on physical sensations in order to feel calm, grounded, and healthy.
Have you ever noticed feeling light and physically relaxed when you’re happy? Or noticed sensations of unease in your heart, stomach, or gut when you’re upset? These sensations are your body’s way of getting your attention, so that you can respond to whatever life throws at you with deep inner feelings of wholeness, resilience, and well-being.
What Is Bodysensing?
Meditation can help you tune in to your body as sensation, so that you can start to respond. One of the most effective meditative practices for refining your responses is something I call bodysensing—a practice to help you feel embodied, in which your physical sensations can inform and change your behaviors and mind. By regularly practicing “bodysensing,” you can calm your central nervous system so that you can achieve deep physical and mental relaxation, enhance your body’s natural resiliency for dealing with stress, and grow your capacity to experience innate, unchanging feelings of health, wholeness, and well-being.
