Japa Meditation (Beginner to Advanced)
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 (Beginner to Advanced)
Otherwise known as “Loving Kindness” meditation, Metta teaches us a way to send well wishes, beginning with ourselves and extending to all living beings.  

Mindfulness Meditation (Beginners)
We go through much of our life on autopilot; constantly rushing from one thing to the next. In this class participants will learn how to stop living in the past or future; and start practicing how to experience awareness in the present moment. Formal and informal mindfulness techniques taught in this class are easily integrated into daily life immediately. Learn to slow things down and become more aware of the present moment, and how you can use it to find true, everlasting happiness.

Philosophy 101 (Beginner to Advanced)
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 (Beginner to Advanced)
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 (Beginner to Advanced)
Otherwise referred to as “taking and sending,” Tonglen teaches you empathy and healing through inhalation and exhalation. You’ll discover how to comfort, heal, and love everyone around you - including yourself - no matter what you’re going through or what you need to overcome. 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 (Beginner to Advanced)
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.
