Why we recommend this video
It is far too seldom that we take the time for self-care and to address the simplest of our basic needs. In this sequence, you can choose to take that time and to enjoy a break where you need nothing more than to be aware and in your body. You can take the time to arrive, to feel into what your body is experiencing and to decide what it right for you and your body. The goal is to find comfort, to have a pleasant experience and to feel fully embodied. You can follow Melanie's guidance to your inner place of strength during the constructive rest.
The goal of this video is to be present, relax and feel embodied. In taking this short time out, you can create space and recharge for the challenges ahead of you. This is not only for those who are dealing with a lot of stress, it is also simply a way to take time to pay attention to your body and to experience living consciously in it.
