Meditation brings Awareness, Clarity, Peace.
Meditation lowers blood pressure, improves immune function, builds inner confidence and reduces anxiety and stress.
With a regular meditation practice, we can influence our bodies, minds, and emotions and move into a place of expanded awareness - a life changing event.
A Meditation practice allows us to see our thoughts, to observe our thoughts, but to realize we are not our thoughts. It is a powerful and profound spiritual technology. A meditation practice is a fundamental component of Ayurvedic medicine derived from the Vedic traditions of India.
Meditation practice is an integral piece of our Perfect Health Lifestyle programs and all of our mind-body classes and workshops.
Everyone can benefit from a meditation practice and the best part is that you need no experience or special background. Learn to live more mindfully, cultivate joy while improving your overall health and well-being. Join me here in Tucson for group classes at my studio, or for Private Meditation instruction.
