Take a deep breath and enjoy this brief mindful meditation break with acclaimed yoga and meditation instructor Lesley Fightmaster. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) Lesley Fightmaster found yoga in 2000 while trying to turn off her head from “oversharing.” She wanted to practice meditation but just couldn’t sit for more than 30 seconds without wanting to jump out of her skin! She was hooked after her first class because she was finally able to relax and quiet her mind. In 2006, she signed up for teacher training with YogaWorks to learn how to teach vinyasa flow safely and with intelligent sequencing. She leads classes in Laguna Beach, Dana Point and Newport Beach. She also leads teacher training and retreats all over the world. Fightmaster offers free online yoga classes on YouTube and currently has over 120,000 followers. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
