Take a moment to notice what sensations you're feeling in your body. Some examples of sensations are, tense shoulders, butterflies in your stomach, or a sluggish feeling, to name a few.
Take the time to slow down and notice what it's like to mindfully pick up one foot and then the other. Breathe.
You're invited to walk in place, or walk around the room, or if you're lucky, walk outside on a comfortable surface.
As you walk, notice what it feels like to use your feet. What muscles and bones do you feel working? Do you step heel toe? What happens if you step toe heel? Try pausing and taking a moment to stretch your feet. Spread your toes wide and see how that feels.
If you'd like to mix it up, try adding a quality. Walk like you're stepping through Jello, or, like your'e walking on the moon.
I always like to check-in at the end of class to see how our bodies feel after mindfulness practice. Notice any differences in how your body feels? Do you feel calmer, or more focused?
