Section 1
  • In this seated meditation, Daya guides you through a tense and release practice to help you relax and get focused for your run. After that, you’ll set an intention before you head out for your run.
  • In this seated meditation, Daya guides you through a visualization practice that’s designed to support your sense of freedom, ease, and efficiency as a runner. After that, you’ll work with a simple confidence boosting mantra you can take with you on your run.
  • This seated meditation begins with an awareness practice where you’ll keep your eyes open, acknowledging your surroundings. Then you’ll close your eyes for a breath and body meditation that can help you feel comfortable with the fluctuations in your breath that naturally occur as you run.
Section 2
  • In this seated meditation, you’ll connect with your breath and your sense of aliveness and freedom. Be with the positive energy you created on your run—and that you have the ability to tap into, even on difficult days.
  • In this seated meditation, you’ll first take a few moments to center yourself post-run. Then Daya guides you through a practice that includes breath awareness and a visualization to let go of frustrating thoughts.
Section 3
  • Choose a comfortable reclined position for this progressive relaxation practice. You’ll tense and release your muscles as you move slowly through your whole body and then more quickly, before letting go of any effort and resting in stillness. Enjoy the feeling of ease you’ve created.
