Meditation is a mind-body practice that’s been helping people restore their natural state of calmness and physical relaxation for thousands of years. There are many ways to meditate, including:
Mindfulness meditation emphasizes your innate ability to be fully present. When you practice mindfulness, you’re aware of your surroundings without overreacting, judging, or feeling overwhelmed.
Sometimes called visualization, guided meditation uses relaxing mental imagery like places or situations. During a live, guided meditation class at 29 Intentions, your teacher leads you through a visualization that helps you achieve a calm, clear, and focused state of mind.
Other types of meditation
Various other approaches to meditation include movement practices like yoga, tai chi, and qi gong, and Transcendental Meditation®, which involves silently repeating a word, sound, or phrase (mantra).
