This month Yoga West have kindly shared a short 10 minute Body Scan meditation with you.
A body scan can be an effective tool to manage muscular pain and release tension. There’s plenty of that to go round with lockdown continuing!
It can be used to complement regular massage and exercises neural pathways to enhance the Mindbody communication process.
The body scan is a visualisation technique that involves mindfully scanning your body for sensations of pain, tension, or anything out of the ordinary.
Regular body scanning can:
- improve sleep.
- reduce pain
- reduce anxiety and relieve stress
- promote a greater self-awareness
- decrease muscular tension
