Confessions from a Boho Fashionista: Get Moving and Get Meditating!

tddanceHey Boho Beauties,

It’s not all pretzel shaped seated positions, quiet yoga rooms and closed eyes. Meditation can happen anytime, anywhere. And get this, goddesses: it’s a serious game changer in so many ways.

My favourite way to meditate is when I’m moving. That’s right gypsy babes, I meditate when I’m cutting up collard greens, brushing my teeth in the a.m, and cruising to class mid-day.  You see, meditation is all about breathing, slowing down your thoughts and turning inward, so get ready to move and make meditation fun!

Here are my top 3 Fav ways to meditate while I move:

1.Dancing

Bohemian fact: most gals love to dance (hip-hop, freestyle, interpretive, you name it!).  Next time your breaking a sweat in your living room or at the studio, match your breath to those sweet movements and think about two things that you are seriously grateful for. Turn this into a gratitude meditation so that body, breath and mind are all connected in a big boho dance.

2.Cooking

Preparing food for yourself and the ones you adore is a spiritual practice on it’s own. You’re making food from your hands and offering it to yourself and the people you care for. Combine this with some loving thoughts and deep breaths and you’ve got yourself a recipe for relaxation. Next time your prepping in your kitchen, match your movements with slow inhales and longer exhales. Think of who you’re making this divine dish for and the nutrients you’ll be providing for them.

3. Big Walks in the Great Outdoors

Think of the last time you took a walk outside. Felt fab, right? That’s because we were meant to be in nature! Find a friend, go outside and get to your breath. Think about what makes you thankful for that friend and infuse those thoughts into your long breaths in and slow breaths out.  Walks outside are super rad because you get to drink in all that’s good for you in nature. So go, beauties, grab a pal and breathe big on your walk outside.

visionarymalaI’ve made moving and meditating a staple in my life. It’s such a great way to keep close to my intentions and stay grounded.  All of this breath talk makes me want to get moving, so I’m heading off to do just that. Next time you’re in the mood to get connected, put your Visionary Mala on and start moving!

 

Peace, Love and Magic from Bohemia xx
