Yoga and Meditation

 

Yoga and Meditation go together and create a synergy of balance for one's Mind, Body and Spirit.  In addition to a day's offering of included yoga classes, you may wish to incorporate breath work and meditation into your Wellness Program. 

 

  Morning Meditation

Begin your day with the serenity of sitting meditation. This is signature Mindful Meditation, the practice of bringing awareness to our moment-to-moment experience. This simple--but not easy--practice of acceptance, letting go, non-striving and suspension of the judgmental mind leaves us with a deep sense of openness and receptivity to ourselves, to others, and to the moment as it unfolds. Profoundly impact the rest of your day by starting your morning in the serenity of sitting meditation.


 Afternoon or Evening Meditation could be any one of the following:

Chakra Meditation 
Connect to your seven energy centers through this guided meditation, which explores each Chakra's relationship to different aspects of your self.

Faith 
In this non-denominational Faith Meditation we learn to “place the heart upon” what is possible, gaining trust and confidence in ourselves and the unfolding process of life.

Loving Kindness 
Loving kindness is a 2,500 year-old meditation practice that uses repeated phrases of goodwill to evoke a feeling of friendliness and kindness towards ourselves and others. In Western terms, it is like a prayer, or a cycle of prayers. It is very useful for quieting distracting thoughts and feelings and clearing a space for mindfulness at the beginning of a session of meditation; it is also a valuable, heart-opening practice in itself.

Sound Meditation 
Experience the positive effect of sound and vibration as a way to calm the mind, settle the emotions and balance the body, life and spirit. Using many tools and techniques, from the huge waves of the crystal bowls to the subtle waves coming from the vibrations of your own breath, you will learn new ways to listen and recognize how sound affects you.

Settle emotions and balance the body with the positive influence of sound and vibration.

Healing Visualizations 
Healing Visualizations is an active form of meditation that engages the mind and harnesses the power of positive imagery to bring about states of well-being that create a pathway for mind-body healing to occur.

Peace Meditation 
In this meditation we cultivate deep states of relaxation by first bringing ease and restfulness to the body, breathing naturally with awareness in a guided meditation accompanied by music. With visualization techniques, we further encourage serenity and tranquility which easily flows from the body to the mind allowing it to rest in its natural state of spacious, open awareness.

Cultivate deep states of relaxation with the assistance of soft, serene music and guided imagery.

 

Forgiveness Meditation 
In order to release deeply held feelings of negativity to ourselves or others, we must be able to forgive. Forgiveness meditation opens and softens the heart and allows us to let go of shame, blame, guilt, and anger and replace this with openness, patience, compassion, and friendliness. Forgiveness does not mean that we condone a harmful action, deny injustice or forget. When we are held captive by our own or others' past actions we carry resentment and our present life can only be partially lived. In forgiveness we begin to give birth to a new and renewed self, free from the burdens of the past.
