“Meditation is integral to yoga. Seekers should experiment with a variety of techniques until they find one to their liking. But if there is no meditation in the practice, it cannot be called yoga.” ~Swami Kripalu
Meditation is a timeless practice with a wide spectrum of benefits. Put simply, meditation is a practice in which we train our minds to maintain a steady focus in order to strengthen our attention, deepen our awareness, and cultivate happiness, well-being, and stable peace of mind. In this 4 week series, we will learn, practice, and discuss our experience of the meditation practices while sharing time in conscious community and creating a solid foundation for creating your personal practice at home.
A wide array of sitting meditation practices will be introduced, as well as mindful movement and breath work, that calm and gladden the mind while strengthening your awareness. A short discussion, before and after practice, will allow you to deepen your understanding, self-reflect and connect with fellow students.
Chairs, blankets and cushions are available to make the practice comfortable. No prior experience is necessary
