Get the Glo App & Put Your Meditation Instructor in Your Phone
Unless you’ve spent the last several years living under a rock, it’s likely that you, like most everyone else these days, know what benefits you get from having a regular yoga and/ or meditation practice. Over the course of time, you start to believe that you’re as flexible as a Cirque du Soleil performer. When the office bully confronts you, getting your Zen on is no big thing, and your strength goes through the roof.
All of these benefits from some simple poses and/ or a change in mindset.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t always allow you to get to that meditation class to recharge your Zen. If that happens all too frequently, then the time has come for you to put a yoga or meditation instructor in the palm of your hands, or in your pocket.
No, it isn’t necessary for you to go Ant Man on your meditation instructor. Rather, it’s time that you look into a meditation app, like Glo.
Try New Instructors
One of the issues that many meditation and yoga practitioners run into is the same-teacher-different-day syndrome. While your teacher definitely plays a role in how good your practice can get, even the best teacher gets stuck in a rut sometimes.
You won’t run into that issue with Glo. The meditation app features the videos of about 50 instructors, each of whom brings his/ her own unique brand of mindfulness and wisdom to the online class.
So Many Classes, so Little Time
Sometimes, you can’t help but go to the same instructor’s class more than once. If you live in a small- to mid-sized town, extra meditation and yoga instructors may come in short supply.
However, this isn’t an issue when you use Glo. The meditation app has almost 4,000 online classes in meditation, yoga and pilates. The app even has exercises you can safely do in your car to ensure that when you arrive at your destination, you’re in the right frame of mind.
Even with how popular it has become in recent years, many people still have misconceptions about what meditation is. Some people think it’s just you sitting there with your legs in the Lotus position with your eyes closed.
Yes, it can be that, but there are plenty of different styles of meditation, each of which is designed to bring about something specific within you.
The loving kindness meditation helps you forgive the past wrongs done to you and that you’ve done to others. Guided meditation puts you in touch with your dreams and your higher self. Mindfulness meditation keeps you empowered by keeping you in the present.
You get the idea.
Additionally, many of Glo’s instructors teach both meditation and yoga, so if you do find a meditation instructor you like and you want to branch out and try some yoga, this meditation app allows you to do it.
A Trial Run
At this juncture, you may feel reluctant to pay for a class you’re not certain you’ll like, or that you’ll use. That’s understandable.
The Glo meditation app alleviates that fear. It offers a 15-day free trial. After that, it costs less than $20 a month, which is less than many once- or twice-a-week meditation/ yoga classes cost.
The app is compatible with both the Apple iStore and Google Play. It’s also possible to access Glo via your Apple TV, iPad, iPhone and the web.
Try it. Your Zen is waiting for you.
