MindbodyHQ Meditation Teaser
Just wanted to give everyone a tiny taste of what to expect with the MindbodyHQ meditations.
Our customised meditations focus on calming the mind and centering thoughts through slowing your breath and heart rate.
As each track gently slows your breath, your mind will calm and your meditation practice will become easier. By influencing your physiology first we are able calm your psychology and help you master meditation faster.
At MindbodyHQ we specialise in 3 styles of meditation
- Breath Control
- Power Naps
- Morning Routines
is all about mastering your ability to calm the mind and control your state at any moment of any day, regardless of the situation.
When you can control and calm your breath you can control and calm the mind.
We believe this is one of the most powerful tools you will ever learn and is sadly not developed by following most popular guided meditations.
Are all about optimising your energy on days when you are crashing and need a boost.
The current solution to most peoples energy crisis is coffee and stimulants. This is a short term, bandaid fix and only leads to further exhaustion and the need for more stimulants or sugar to get through the day.
A 20-minute power nap takes about the same time as a coffee break, but revitalises your mind, regenerates your natural energy sources and reduces stress hormones instead of increasing them.
20 minutes is the perfect duration for a powernap and this is why our MindbodyHQ power naps are always 20 minutes. Please avoid the temptation to nap longer as once you push over 30 minutes the chances of waking groggy instead of energised are increased.
The Morning Routine is exactly that.
The perfect start to your morning and a key staple of MindbodyHQ.
This is more than breathwork and meditation. The mIndbodyHQ morning routine has 4 key sections that set up your day for success.
The daily routine consists of a
- 5 minute meditation
- 2 minute gratitude practice
- 2 minute visualisation
- 1 minute critical focus
Your Meditation Level
Each Mindbody meditation has 6 levels. Each level correlates to the breath cycle that suits you best
- Level 1 is for beginners who may breathe quickly, live a sedentary lifestyle with very little physical activity or who have limited lung capacity.
- Level 2 and 3 are for intermediates. We recommend starting your mindbodyHQ mediation journey on level 3.
- Level 4 and 5 are for advanced students. Please don’t move to these tracks until you can either comfortably complete 10 minutes meditating at level 3, or find the breath rate on level 3 is too slow for you to relax.
- Level 6 is only for experts wanting to challenge their mindset and reach deep levels of control and stillness.
As a rule for all breathwork, if you ever feel light-headed or dizzy at any point, please return to your normal breathing rate until you feel better again.
If you are meditating at level 2 or above you are receiving maximum physical benefits from your practice. The higher levels are purely for mental conditioning and should not be rushed into.
If you are a deep breather a track that cycles too fast will restrict your ability to relax. You will find the meditation difficult and with little benefit.
If you choose a track that is too slow, you may stuggle for air and becoming tense or anxious. Please understand this is not a race or a competition. There is ZERO benefit in trying to breathe at a cyle that doesn't help you relax.
The most important factor in choosing your level is how well the track helps you relax.
