Weekly Meditation Classes Beginning January 1, 2018!
Do you need a weekly refresh
to get your mind back on track?
What style of meditation will be taught?
The sessions include a range of meditations from mindfulness and insight that Leona has found popular over the many years she’s been teaching. Some meditations will be simple guided meditation, where you simply follow the voice of the Leader, and some will give your mind a bit of a workout – helping you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings. The teachings are non religious but many stem from ancient teachings of Buddhism, Hindi and other traditions. Everyone is welcome.
Do I have to have experience in Meditation?
Not at all. Our classes are designed with beginners in mind. First time and experienced meditators are welcome to attend.
Do I have to go every week?
It’s not a requirement – and you are free to attend as you please, but we do recommend you attend every week to get the best results. This helps keep up your motivation towards a successful meditation practice that will enhance your life. Every 5 weeks covers a different topic and attending all sessions will give you the benefit of a greater way of experiencing different kinds of meditations, and insights about why a mindfulness practice should be an important part of everyone’s life. Making a commitment to your well-being, learning about what suits you, and sharing experiences in a group can enhance your practice. Sessions may or may not be run during holidays – check the class calendar for current schedule.
Why should I attend weekly meditation sessions?
Meditation and mindfulness are said to be the keys to happiness and joy. Building a daily practice can be challenging, and including a weekly session can help increase your motivation to make meditation a habit – and stick with it, while giving you the opportunity to share your journey with like minded souls.
How long are the sessions?
Sessions go for approximately 50-60 minutes, but don’t worry, we won’t make you sit still and meditate all that time!
As a guide the sessions may include an introduction, easy 5 minute stretch, 2 meditations – to add to your ‘meditation toolbox’, and time for discussion in-between. Our aim is to have you leave feeling refreshed and relaxed, and ready to make meditation part of your life for the better.
How much does it cost?
Drop in classes are currently $10 per class. Monthly plans are available.
What do I need to take?
Chairs, cushions, and yoga mats are available but please feel free to bring your own meditation cushion/ stool and yoga mat if you wish. Yoga mats are not required, but some prefer to use them if sitting on the floor. You should also take payment, an open mind, and eagerness to learn 🙂
