Intro to Meditation with Julia

March 10, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Live ZOOM or Post Class Recording ONLY

$12 per class or $40 for 4 class series

This four week introduction to meditation will give you the skill base to begin your meditation practice.  In this course, you will learn the basics: a comfortable sitting posture, diaphragmatic breathing, relaxation methods, and essential concentration techniques that direct us to an experience of inner radiance and tranquility.  Our time together will start with a 10 minute relaxation practice followed by light stretching, we will then discuss the philosophy that supports the inward journey of self-reflection, and then the techniques of concentration and meditation. We will end every session with a 15 minute meditation.

You will be asked to practice regularly on your own in between sessions to build capacity and thoughtful experience. This course work will progressively guide you towards a deeper understanding and experience of meditation and the reflective tools of meditation to embrace your life’s purpose and position. You will learn what the essential tools are for setting up a meditation practice and this will include suggestions around philosophical content to support the work.

The work presented is based on the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophies’ teaching methods.
