Focused Breathing Meditation Technique
This first meditation can be done anywhere you can sit comfortably with minimal distractions. This is a simple introduction to focusing on the awareness of breathing.
Body Scan Meditation
Also known as the progressive muscle relaxation. This guided meditation will help you to notice sensations as they come and go, to develop a better understanding of what the body is telling you, and then to soften different areas of the body.
Awareness of Thoughts Meditation
This is a grounding style, focused on the mind body connection. You will be guided to recognize the quality of thought, the impermanance of thoughts, and then ground yourself back in to the body. This class will give you the foundation for better concentration.
This meditation is intended to understand the different layers of our experience. You will be guided through your body, your emotions, your sensations, and thoughts. Creating space between each platform, to gain better understanding of what we are going through right now.
This is an intention setting meditation. We will work with the three core concepts of any sort of mindfulness. Once you learn this technique, you will be able to take it in to your day to day off the mat.
This is a traditional Buddhist meditation for love and kindness. A befriending of ourselves, and those around us.
