Intro to Meditation

If you are curious about meditation, but not quite sure how to get started, this 60-minute introductory course is the perfect class for you. Practiced for thousands of years, meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body's own inner intelligence. It's not about forcing the mind to be quiet, it's finding the silence that's already there and making it a part of your life. In this class, you will learn the basic principles of meditation; it's history and the physical and emotional benefits of a personalized daily practice.

Japa Meditation
The Sanskrit word “japa” can be defined as “muttering.”  Japa Meditation is the practice of repeating a mantra or a divine name either very softly or within your mind.   Many practitioners use a mala (prayer beads) as a way to count the number of times they repeat the mantra.

Metta Meditation
The practice of Metta or Loving Kindness Meditation teaches us a way to send well wishes, beginning with ourselves and extending to all living beings.  We recite specific words in a specific order.

Philosophy 101 
Go deeper into the ancient wisdom and philosophy of yoga. In this class you will learn about the Yamas and Niyamas, the 8 Limbs of Yoga and more. 

Primordial Sound Meditation 
Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation technique originating in the ancient wisdom of India. Primordial Sounds—the basic, most essential sounds of nature—are used to disconnect us from the activity of life. These individually selected sounds, known as mantras, are based on the vibration the universe was making at the moment of your birth. Once your Primordial Sound mantra has been determined, you will be taught how to use it on a daily basis to reawaken balance, tranquility and compassion within. This class is in taught in two separate sessions, at least one week apart. 

Tonglen Meditation
Tonglen Meditation is also referred to as “taking and sending.”  We take on the pain of a particular person, a group of the world with our inhalation.  With our exhalation, we send our comfort, healing, love. 

This is a wonderful practice for someone who is dealing with health issues or other painful situation.  It is particularly beautiful  when the person in need invites family and loved ones to participate.

Walking Meditation
We often think of sitting as the "proper" meditation position, but in this class we'll show you how reaching a state of "flow" can happen in even when you are walking. Come with an open mind and prepare to walk barefoot as we deepen our connection with the earth.
