Please excuse this non-teacher for butting into this forum...but I have to say, from a sports physiology perspective, to warm up and then to meditate would be counterproductive - why increase body/muscle temperature, get the body primed to train, then sit and cool down while meditating? I would strongly recommend meditating first, then a warmup NOT of stretches but of gentle range of motion that mimics the muscle movements to be used during training, plus rolling. Cooling down after training could include stretching.
very true... meditation is what we start out with... [should have reflected that in my list - though its to late to edit, consider it changed!]
