If you're having issues with the player:

This is the first mindfulness guided meditation in a series of three. Although this is for all levels, in this video David teaches it as a "meditation for beginners", teaching you how to meditate beginning with the first step among many meditation techniques, establishing a focused mind. This is a great first step when learning about meditation and mindfulness - very similar to vipassana meditation - and will help you establish a strong mindfulness practice.

Equipment: Blankets
Style: Guided Meditation, Yoga for Anxiety Stress

Thank you for getting me started. Meditation is really what I need right now against the stress from work. Nature resonates a lot for me, I loved this first class in the woods and your guidance while keeping silent moments for us to focus.

Amazing - after years of attempting to ‘meditate’, this helped me to calm my mind and focus.

i learned beginner's vipassana before really yoga-ing and its occurred to me since that it's a bit like getting very very very good at one particular asana :p this class helped me soften the upper back after a long day at work

Thank you so much for this practice, it was perfect for an impatient and busy mind. I found the concept of becoming "softer" very helpful. This class had me surprisingly relaxed and wanting more.

for a well guided meditation. I like the idea of making less effort and becoming softer. Session 2 here we come

First time I felt comfortable meditating. It has always been difficult for me to sit still. Having the small area to begin focus surely helped. Shoulder tightness is much softer now. Looking forward to revisiting this and the other 2 new videos. Thank you David!

This a good icebreaker for a skeptic. Looking forward to the next part.

This class appeared exactly at the moment I needed it today. My key takeaway was not to force awareness, but to simply let it be - something I was able to take with me after the video ended. Thank you so much for this. I'll be thrilled to practice the next two parts of this series.
