Initially developed by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as stretching breaks between long periods of sitting meditation, the Ten Mindful Movements have become a popular tool to reduce stress and tension. These simple and effective movements, based on yoga and Tai Chi, can increase mental, emotional, and physical well-being, and are suited for people of all ages with a wide range of physical abilities.
Each exercise is fully illustrated by Weitske Vriezen, a Dutch artist and movement teacher. The book is accompanied by a 35-minute DVD of Thich Nhat Hanh and members of the Plum Village Sangha demonstrating the Mindful Movements.
