Next Workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 15th 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Are you interested in beginning a meditation practice but not sure how to start? This workshop will guide you through the very basics you need to know to get started on a regular meditation practice from the Hatha Yoga tradition. The workshop will cover:
-Why meditate? Learn what recent research has to say about the benefits of a regular meditation practice.
-What is meditation? Learn what meditation is and is not. We will discuss the different styles of meditation (breathwork, mindfulness, guided imagery, mantra, chanting, using mala beads, etc.). You will learn which types of meditation may work best for you.
-Guided practice of mindful breathing meditations or pranayama, seated meditation from the Hatha Yoga tradition, gentle asana or movement between meditations and a guided Yoga Nidra.
-Learn the basics: creating a meditation space at home; choosing a comfortable seated position and the placement of hands or Mudras; and the recommended length and frequency of practice.
- Workshop price includes a meditation CD to help you begin a regular practice at home.
Cost is $80 for the two hour workshop. Pre-registration is required as space is limited.
