How to ground yourself, and connect into the present moment

To develop the awareness to ground yourself and stay present no matter what situation is presented before you is a vital skill to have. In this talk, we explore the science behind the practice of visualization and why it’s such a powerful tool in helping us to connect to the present moment and more deeply into ourselves.

Now that you’ve completed the practice. Here are some optional journaling prompts to help you reflect and go a little deeper. In your journal, please contemplate and write about the following:

1) What​ ​kind of physical sensations or perhaps visuals were you experiencing during the breath practice?

2)  What was arising within you physically, mentally and emotionally during the purification breath?

Contraindications for Kapalabhati (purification breath) – Do not practice intense pumping of the belly if you currently are pregnant, menstruating, have low/high blood pressure, experiencing migraines, have glaucoma, have existing cardiovascular disease.

Paired workouts are usually a suggested fusion of both methods or an extension of the workout you have just completed.

This was a bit new for me, but I really got a lot from it. I feel great and will be doing this again!

Easy to follow

5 out of 5 stars

I’ve tried a couple of meditation classes & apps but always found it hard not to get distracted, this experience was the total opposite! I found it very easy to follow and stay present leaving me feeling grounded and open. Looking forward to the journey over the next days and weeks

Powerful stuff

5 out of 5 stars

I've previously done short, intensive meditation courses in vipassana and qigong approaches. Johnson's first class very quickly took me back to the mind/body connection that it previously took me a long time to get to. I love that this is using your intension and visualisation within the body. It works! And Johnson himself feels approachable, warm, very experienced and knowledgeable. I felt (and still feel) grounded, connected, and excited about starting this course. Looking forward to doing this every day.

Massage for my mind

5 out of 5 stars

On completing this meditation I feel like a weight is lifted and my head has cleared (which is doesn't happen often as I live with anxiety). I thought I would be resistant to the breathing exercise but after a few breathes I started to feel a difference. I like that it is under 15mins, makes it easy to fit in my day. I will definitely be revisiting this one regularly.

kapalabhati

5 out of 5 stars

Very clear instructions on how to practice kapalabhati. The practice was very effective in helping to clear my mind and declutter my thoughts at the end of the day.

Positive Start

As someone who hasn't done much mediation, I found this a very positive experience. The visualisation left me feeling light and focused. Johnson's delivery is really calming.
