Meditation › Graham Burns
Meditation lies at the heart of yoga and is a practice requiring a single pointed focus. There are many different ways to meditate: with the repetition of mantras, listening to sound or on the breath or with the use of imagery or through visualisation.

This easy to follow meditation is perfect for beginners. Graham gives four simple ways to use the breath as a focus to settle the body help concentrate the mind. He also offers helpful tips throughout the practice about what often happens when we try to mediate and what we might think we are doing wrong.
