Gratitude: Find Your Flow

By Nike Training

Find Your Flow: Yoga & Meditation

How yoga and meditation can bring your mind back to a place of gratitude.

Restless mind? Tense shoulders? Tight hips? The fix is the same: yoga. “The practice is all about feeling connected to your body, by quieting your thoughts and focusing on sensations,” says Nike Master Trainer and yoga instructor Alex Silver-Fagan. “When you do that, you not only relieve physical tension, you’re also thrown into the present moment—a headspace that can help you stay centered even after you’ve rolled up your mat.”

To help you find your Zen, we curated our best yoga workouts, tips, and tricks from our coolest and most collected trainers. Mood-boosting flows, stress-busting meditations, gratitude-growing techniques…it’s all here, and all yours.

Just like any new skill, cultivating an attitude of gratitude takes time and practice.

Just acknowledge the thought, bring it back, and try again. It’s small, consistent changes over time that will have the biggest impact on your mind, and your mood. And that’s something to feel grateful about right there.
