When you focus your awareness on your body, you deepen your awareness of yourself. Use this meditation to strengthen your physical awareness of your body before an asana practice, or to recenter yourself in the middle of the day. This practice will not only build on your bodily awareness—but also reenergize you for the rest of your day. Join yoga teacher Josh Summers for this practice that will help you to turn your attention inward.
