About Light

Light Watkins has been operating in the meditation space for over 15 years, first as a practitioner, then as an apprentice to his teacher, and finally as a teacher himself. He is based in Santa Monica, CA, but travels the world teaching everyone from bankers, artists, and politicians, to CEOs, caretakers, and comedians how to meditate in a self-sufficient way. It's his passion to introduce others to a practice that he has personally benefitted from in every area of life. 

To date, Light has taught meditation to roughly 2,000 people. He is the author of The Inner Gym book series; the first volume of which has been released, and the rest are coming. He is also a regular contributor to mindbodygreen.com, and has given a TEDx talk titled Debunking The 5 Most Common Meditation Myths. In 2014, Light founded The Shine Movement in Los Angeles.
