Living a beautiful and mindful life, starts within.
In a world that is so focused on pushing, going and doing, we need to prioritise moments out of our busy day to rest, nurture, love and care for ourselves. This in eastern philosophy is known as the balance between yin and yang, which is essential for our happiness and well-being.
Mindfulness is simply the practice of being fully present in the now.
You know that feeling when your walking in the woods and you notice the colour of the leaves, the sound of birds singing, and the fresh air filling your lungs as your shoulders relax... or how you loose the sense of time and space as your spending quality time with someone you love, not thinking about anything else but simply enjoying yourself and being present... that is what mindfulness is all about.
But we all know that with hectic schedules and long to do lists, it isn't always so easy to find this calm. And so one of the ways we can practice mindfulness and experience being more mindful and present throughout our day, is through meditation.
Meditation is really just a fancy word for turning our attention inwards to connect with our breath, our body and how we are feeling.
As we practice letting go of our thoughts and being fully present and calm through meditation, it becomes easier to do it throughout our day. Especially when life is busy.
Meditation can be as simple as turning off distractions, closing our eyes and taking a few deep breaths.
But sometimes we can find that our thoughts come flooding in and it can be hard to stay focused. Which is why I personally love guided meditations.
Guided meditations are a great way to get started with meditation or to deepen your practice as you have someone guiding you through it, helping you to stay present and focused.
Because I as a yoga instructor love to use meditations both personally and in my courses, I have created 8 relaxing meditations that I hope can help to calm and care for your mind and body.
You get access to them for life, and they can be downloaded and used anytime, anywhere.

Etter en lang arbeidsdag er det lite som er så digg som en veiledet meditasjon sammen med Yinmama!
Jeg setter så pris på de deilige minuttene med selvpleie og avslapning! Takk🤍
I want to share my experience of guided meditation (selv-love) that I took yesterday.
After two minutes I started crying and crying non-stop throughout the meditation. I realised that all the emotions came to the surface after several months where I was very tense and stressed, and did not have much time for myself.
After the meditation I was very relieved, and my mind became clearer. so I love what this meditation has done to me.
Therefore, I want to thank you very much for making this meditation, I will use this more often now.
