Throughout this course, you will be invited to explore several body postures for sitting or lying down while engaging with formal mindfulness practices. In this segment, we will explore and demonstrate these options to you. It will be useful to have a meditation cushion, chair, yoga mat, and blanket with you as you watch this explanation so you can follow along. If, for physical reasons, you are unable to adopt any of these postures, it is okay. Do what you can, exploring the soft edges, that is to say, the space between pushing too hard and not exploring what the body is capable of.
