Meditation taster session

Monday 11 September at 11:15am

In our recent survey, many of you told us about additional activities that you would like to see added to our online schedule. We have listened and are now in a position to provide taster sessions for some of the popular suggestions, including Meditation.

Join Tracy (our chair yoga teacher) for this free taster session focussed on Meditation. The practice of Meditation is aimed at quietening our thoughts and minds. There are many styles and techniques to explore. In this session Tracy will briefly introduce what Meditation is and guide us through a particular guided meditation practice. Meditation forms a key part of a complete yoga practice and by allowing the mind to take constructive rest, it can be a powerful way to enhance overall health and wellbeing – mind, body and spirit.

With regular practice, Meditation can help you to

  • Improve concentration and focus
  • Switch off from the regular “chitter chatter” of the mind
  • Be more mindful and compassionate with yourself and others
  • Improve rest and sleep
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Improve breathing
  • Move towards happiness and contentment

The Taster session will be 45 minutes allowing for introduction and settling, closing and any discussion. The guided meditation itself will last for approximately 30 minutes. It will be best to take the guided meditation either seated or lying in a comfortable position.

If the Taster session is successful, we hope to introduce a regular weekly class, with a recording also available in the portal.
