There is no better way to calm the swirl of the mind than meditation. It isn’t a complete cessation of thought; it’s more of a pause button. It’s the permission you need to give yourself to be unattached to any thought, whether it be in the past or future. Much of our angsty feelings stem from the past and our anxiety lives in our feelings of the future. Being here, now, in a dedicated meditation program creates the space to exhale, pause, and flood the body with healing hormones. Your yoga practice is a “meditation in motion,” giving you similar peace. It is said that the asana practice, or yoga practice, is a prelude to meditation.
I am pleased to partner with fellow yoga instructor and meditation teacher, Martha Susi, to offer class geared toward warming your body up in preparation for meditation, called “Move & Meditate,” on Monday evenings.
If you are interested in Move & Meditate please let me know and I’ll add you to our list for fall classes.
