How Do You Become Mindful

Being mindful doesn’t mean you have to sit and meditate or focus on a word, breathing or an object for a certain period of time. Sure, if that’s what you do in life, like monks do, this is their ritual, that’s fine. But for most of us we need something more “tangible” to help us understand what mindfulness and being mindful and aware is, and how we can become mindful.

The reality is mindfulness has always been there, in other cultures. In the western world it may seem like a trend, a thing people do to look and feel interesting. However, this is far from being true. Forget about the research that shows meditation and mindfulness leads to cellular changes, reducing stress, balancing hormones and so on. Forget about the research, and just see how you feel when you try something similar to what I explained in the video below.

Alexandra Merisoiu, The Body Engineer, is the Founder of The Merisoiu Technique - Institute Of Health And Human Movement and Dracula’s Retreat. She is also a qualified Low Back Pain Management and Prevention Exercise Instructor and REPS registered.

She specialises in working with runners, beginners and advanced, who want to run faster, further, with less effort and fewer injuries. This is done through natural movement fitness and running technique and mechanics drawn from the many disciplines Alexandra has studies throughout the years, including long distance running.

Since 1995 she has explored how the body and mind works. She has done this through using many different sporting techniques and working with a wide variety of highly respected coaches. Throughout her Martial Arts career she has achieved 3rd Dan Black Belt in Karate Shotokan, runs her own Karate club and is IJKA 2017 triple World Champion, 2016 WMO Martial Arts British National and European Champion. She still competes at an international level.

It is through these learnings, and drawing inspiration from respected natural movement names such as MovNat, IdoPortal and POSE Method of running among many others, that she has created The Merisoiu Technique and has established her own unique transformational programs that incorporate thousands of years of knowledge with Natural Human Movement.

Alexandra’s mission is to challenge the status quo of how to achieve the truly strong, fit and powerful body a runner needs to perform at their best level. This is done through building strong, lasting foundations in the natural outdoor environment; reducing the risk of injuries and educating people on the power of the fundamentals of natural human movement and running mechanics.
