Investment: £60 or £40 if you are repeating this workshop
Meditation for Life Course Ideal for people who have always wondered about meditation but have never had the time to find out
On this full day course we will explore what is Meditation and how to integrate this practice in to your life.
The practice of meditation is no longer restricted to Buddhist Monks, Christian Contemplatives and Yogis. It has become part of our popular culture and brings with it positive and often rapid results.
Recommended by Doctors as a way to de-stress, combat hypertension and ease depression, by sports coaches and business managers to keep focused and relaxed, More and more people from all walks of life meditate to de-stress and to help deal with the complexities of modern living. Its easy to learn and need only take 10 minutes a day.
We will explore how we can use meditation and other disciplines to enhance our lives making us more positive, confident, healthy and happy. Over the course of the day we will look at different types of meditation, and we will enjoy practicing different methods finding out what is most suitable for us.
Do bring a pen and paper and a packed lunch - we have a microwave, fridge, kettle, teas and coffee, and place to eat.
Yin yoga is a way of working our deep tissues and keeping our joints healthy. It is also a deeply meditative practice as the poses are each held for a few minutes fully supported by props to take away any strain.
This can be a challenging form of yoga as it can be a struggle to still our body and mind but once this challenge is overcome, there is a wonderful feeling of stillness and peace. The practice allows us to connect with our bodies, being aware of tightness and limitations so that we can work with them rather than against them. It is also a fantastic opportunity for self reflection.
Yoga Nidra has the potential to completely relax the body and takes our mind to the same state as when we are in a deep dreamless sleep but still with a level of awareness. As well as a form of complete rest for the body and mind, it is also a deeply spiritual practice.
The workshop will begin with pranayama (breathing practices) to start stilling the mind and settling the body. We will then come into our yin yoga practice allowing time to find the variation of each posture that works best for each of us. Towards the end of the session, we will use yoga nidra to fully absorb our yoga practice by relaxing the body and mind fully. Finally we will ground ourselves using all of our senses in preparation for going back into our everyday lives while still maintaining a feeling of calm.
This workshop is suitable for all levels. Advance booking essential.
