Back in June I posted a blog called: "If You're in Pain After Only 5-10 Minutes of Meditation, You're Probably Making these Common Alignment Mistakes." We received such an overwhelming response from meditators and yogis commenting and asking more questions about how to enhance their seated posture, that I decided to film......the sequel!
If you have not yet watched the original, you can find it over at my blog.
Here are some of the most common questions we got, which I address in the video:
1. What do I do if my legs are still falling asleep? What do I do if my legs are tingling? 2. What do I do if I still have knee pain? 3. What do I do if I still have ankle pain?
Ultimately it is not necessarily all about getting completely free in your body during meditation. I prefer to focus on what a total victory it is if you can last even 2 minutes longer with out discomfort!
Your body will get stronger the more you meditate in good alignment and you can keep adding those minutes on over time.
And as you know, the more people who meditate for longer periods of time, the more world peace we're gonna get!
As always, please leave a comment at the bottom of the blog. I would love, love, love to hear how much more mileage you get on your cushion after watching this!
