Yoga and meditation are complementary practices – practising yoga asanas allows us to be physically fit and supple enough to be still in meditation, while meditation trains the mind to be focussed, pliable and compassionate, bringing space, steadiness and clarity to our asana practice. Practising meditation helps us to live fully and vividly, in connection with others, transforming ourselves and the world around us.
These morning meditation sessions will consist of guided meditations and opportunities to ask questions about meditation practice. It’s both a chance to learn to meditate and to have guidance on setting up a regular meditation practice.
The meditations that will be taught come from the Buddhist tradition, though you do not have to be Buddhist to practise them or benefit from them. The sessions occur on full or new moon days, which in the Buddhist lineage are auspicious times to gather and practise together.
All meditations will take place at Astanga Yoga London, Dharma Shala.
