Take a deep breath. You’re here. Take another deep breath, and as you do, stand up a little straighter. Okay, now you’re meditating…

From now on, this is the first thing I want you to do when you arrive at your gym or studio – take a deep breath and relax.

Bring yourself into presence, release any pressure that has been mounting throughout your day or in hurrying from one place to the next. Take a deep breath, relax, and set the stage for your practice.


One thing I have learned in writing about and teaching this stuff… the more simple a practice, the more powerful it is. It helps to have reminders to take pause. Whenever you arrive anywhere is a good reminder to take a deep breath. You have arrived.

This was how I opened a recent event I conducted at Lululemon’s the Residency in Dallas, where we set the stage with some MeditativeFitness processes before going on a meditative walking lunge challenge.


If you’re ready to take your physical practice to the next level, you can now get your hands on over 50 MeditativeFitness processes as part of the audiobook, available on Audible or iTunes.
