THE NATURAL ANTIDOTE TO ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION

Meditation is often the least tended to of the yogic practices -- but by far the most effective and important. It's a practice that eludes many students and even teachers.

To attain a perfect state of physical, emotional and mental health, we must learn to cultivate a calm mind and stable emotions. Meditation is a solid, proven method to clear the mind and calm the anxiety and stress that causes reactivity and conflict. To find a meditation practice that you can commit to for any length of time, you are wise to seek instruction and community.  

In this workshop you will be introduced to three types of meditation: mindfulness meditation, loving kindness meditation and guided relaxation meditation (Yoga Nidra). You will learn to use therapeutic Somatics Yoga to prepare both body and mind for sitting in meditation. You will learn to support your body in various ways to sit longer and more comfortably in meditation. This workshop will jump start your meditation practice and is for any student who wishes to commit to a regular practice of meditation and learn the valuable skill of releasing anxiety and tension from body and mind. 

There will also be chairs available for students that are not comfortable meditating on the floor. 

“Meditation is absolutely necessary for those who want to have a better and more fulfilling life. If you feel that you are satisfied with what you have and what you are then you need not enter into the field of meditation. But if you feel that there is a barren desert deep inside your heart, then meditation is the answer. Meditation will give you inner joy and peace of mind.” - Sri Chinmoy

This evening workshop is an excellent place to start. When you are ready to make a deeper and lasting commitment to the healing of your stress and anxiety, consider joining the upcoming 8-week Mindfulness & Relaxation for Anxiety Training at St Paul Yoga Center. It takes time to fully embed a new habit into your daily routine -- and while occasional meditation is very helpful there really is no substitute for a daily practice. The 8-week training will take you through the steps, the pitfalls and get you through the ego's stubborn persistence to positive internal change. Maria is a compassionate and experienced meditation instructor who has practiced and taught meditation for over 25 years. She will help you make a solid connection to your strong and radiant Spirit -- the true and lasting healing force that we all carry within. Join her 8-week Mindfulness and Relaxation Training that starts in January, 2018. You will learn to develop a solid, daily practice in a supportive environment. LEARN MORE HERE.
