As you may be aware, since September I have been running 45 minute guided group sessions focussing solely on meditation. My aim each month is to offer you different tips and techniques to try in our session and for you to then try at home in order to help reduce the stress and strains of daily life!
So far we have sampled a walking meditation, visualisations on the chakras and a simple but relaxing body scan using the breath (this one in particular can help you get off to sleep). Meditation is simple to learn and it’s accessible for all regardless of your age, body type, gender and whether you have tried yoga or meditation before.
Many people are intimidated by meditation, or believe they are unable to do it. But the key to learning meditation is just becoming aware of your mind, of its patterns and noticing when you’ve run away into daydreaming, worry, or distraction.
For me, meditation helped me find a little peace and calm during a very turbulent time when I was suffering with anxiety and health problems due to stress. Connecting with meditation then started to change my yoga practice into something more fulfilling and lead to me finding Akhanda Yoga. Meditation will begin to bring changes to your energy levels and your wellbeing with regular practice.
If you would like to join us, then the next class is on Monday 7 November at 19:30 at Massage Therapy Rooms by Aimee, 272 Liverpool Road, Birkdale.
