Step 3: Body Awareness

Body awareness can help you move with more ease.

Listen to the short audio recording below. Though the technique described is similar to breath awareness, you will now be paying attention to subtle, non-pain sensations in your body while you continue to practice calm breathing.

Pain can make this a very difficult task. It will get easier with practice.

Practice feeling subtle sensations of calm breathing, relaxed muscles and a quiet heartbeat through every part of your body.

Sit in a comfortable position and practice this 3 to 5 times per day. Just as with longer, smoother, softer breath in Step 2, you can expect improvements within 3 to 6 weeks.
