A Meditation to Tap Into Your Wellspring of Inner Peace

Want to transform tension into harmony? Try this 20-minute practice from yoga teacher Natalie Beckman.

Try this practice to help you tap into your wellspring of inner peace. You’ll identify where you are harboring conflict in your body, mind and heart and release that conflict in the form of tension and distraction. Then you’ll experience the peace which wells up in its place.

Utilizing techniques of the Himalayan Tradition, this meditation brings the mind and breath into joyful reunion, empowering you to delve more deeply inward. As you release tension held in the physical, mental, and energetic bodies, your sensitivity to prana increases and enhances your experience of the peace emanating from within.


Natalie recently assisted Tracee Stanley’s Meditation Teacher Training, a 4-week virtual program in collaboration with Yoga Journal. Learn more here.
