About this Workshop:
Yoga in the form of Meditation doesn’t just help us become happier and calmer. Modern technology now allows us to study the effect of meditation in a way that was never possible before. We now know that the effect of meditation can be as far reaching as changing the content of the blood and even the shape of the brain! We have all read the articles telling us that yoga meditation has a powerful impact on health and well-being, yet it can still be challenging to develop a personal practice. Much of this has to do with not being able to measure it’s effects in any visible way. Being unable to step on a scale or look at a monitor to measure “progress” we can end up sitting and wondering if anything is really happening. Well, it is!

Find the motivation to start meditating regularly or to deepen your current practice in this workshop as we explore types of meditation, tips and techniques to fine tune your practice. Come prepared for several short periods of gentle asana interspersed with information on some of the studies that will leave you with no doubt that happening in your body and mind the next time you sit in meditation.

This workshop is appropriate for those with an existing yoga practice and for absolute beginners to yoga movements and meditation. No experience of any sort is required to benefit from this session.

“There’s a void in your soul, ready to be kindled. You can feel it, can’t you?”
– Rumi
