Walking and Running Meditation

Posted by in Stress Management | Comments Off on Walking and Running Meditation

Walking and running meditation are forms of moving meditation that use the movements that accompany any repetitive continuous physical activity as the focal point. Unlike traditional meditation, which is practiced while sitting quietly, moving meditation can be done as you get your daily dose of physical activity and exercise.


Any continuous, repetitive, physical activity can be converted into a moving meditation . Walking, running, swimming, bicycling, and cross-country skiing are examples of repetitive, continuous physical activity that typically is sustained for at least twenty minutes and can provide an aerobic training effect as well as a meditative benefit.


Walking and running are excellent activities to use to learn moving meditation because they are safe, can be practiced by almost anyone, and can be done both indoors on a treadmill and outdoors. During  walking and running meditation you focus on the individual components of each step (lifting the leg, bending the knee, stepping forward, heel touching, toe touching, etc.), the process of walking or running (feelings in the feet, legs, back, etc., one’s balance and sensation of movement), and your breathing. Regular practice of walking or running meditation will not only help you relax through meditation, it will help increase your overall health and fitness level.
