5 Minute Meditation - 478 Breathing for Stress and Anxiety (5DS 4/5)
A guided meditation featuring 478 breathing (or pranayama) technique. While this breathwork helps calm the mind, be aware that it can cause lightheadedness so be sure to take this class seated or lying down. If you have some extra time in your day, I'd recommend to sit for an extra few minutes of quiet after this mini-class! You'll really notice the difference in the breath and body. Namaste, and remember it's about practice not perfection!

Share some time at the beach with me! This relaxing meditation creates a sense of gentle awareness as you listen to the waves, birds, rocks, boats, and critters. Focus your attention on the unique quality of each sound you hear. - I give you a short introduction in this episode to get you started, but then allow a long fade-out after the roughly 15 minutes of meditation. If you're able to from your device, I would recommend making sure autoplay is off or that the next audio clip that starts isn't too loud!

Ep.25: Quiet Mind Meditation
A simple breath-mindfulness meditation to let the mind unwind and decompress. This class is perfect for any time of day, and is accessible to all levels. If you're new to meditation or have a lot on your mind (okay, who doesn't lately!?) you may choose to repeat this class a few times.
