  • relieve low back pain with specifically adapted and sequenced yoga postures

Heard about the benefits of meditation but not sure where to start? Think you don't have enough time to meditate? Are you ready to make positive changes in your life?
If so, then Meditation 101 is for you!

During this 4-week course, you'll be introduced to the following concepts:
    • How to meditate 'on the go' – mini-practices that fit into your daily schedule
    • Mindfulness – including how mindful eating can change your relationship to food
    • Guided imagery and affirmations – counteract negative thinking and bad habits
    • Using sound and words as meditative tools – how to focus the mind and relax
We'll explore the following 'Mediation Myths' and why they're not true.
  • You must empty your mind of thoughts
  • There is a 'right' way to meditate
  • You need at least an hour a day to meditate
  • You can only meditate while sitting on the floor

This is an interactive class with time for questions and discussion. The focus on the class is the experience of the meditative techniques rather than lecture or presentation.

Bring your questions, a notepad, and a pen. Chairs are provided.

Learn to meditate – transform your mind and transform your life!
