Meditation Through Movement: Upper Body

exercises and workouts

Today, we're taking a break from the hustle and bustle and indulging in a different kind of workout – one that's all about embracing the present moment and letting go of stress and worries. No high-intensity drills, just a soothing journey through your body and emotions.

Why Mindful Movement?

In this post, we're diving into the art of meditation through movement. Whether you've had a stressful day, are preparing for one, or just need some me-time, this workout is your ticket to relaxation. If traditional meditation isn't your cup of tea, give this a try.

What You'll Need

Grab a couple of dumbbells (or even just one) and find a comfortable space on the floor, bench, or even a fitness ball if you have one. Remember, this isn't about heavy lifting; it's about moving your body and emotions gently.

The Routine

We'll go through a series of exercises, each designed to help you connect with your body and breath. From front raises to chest flies, we'll work on different muscle groups while maintaining a focus on mindfulness.

Key Takeaway

Remember, this isn't a competition or a race. It's a practice in being present, both in your body and mind. If your thoughts wander, that's okay; just gently bring them back to the movement and your breath.


By the end of this session, you'll feel more centered, refreshed, and ready to take on whatever life throws your way. Plus, you've given your body some love and care. Stack those healthy habits and stay tuned for more mindful movement with Monika.
