In this introduction to meditation, participants will learn the benefits of meditation, as well as an introduction to different types of meditation.

Participants will be given tools to increase awareness of these responses with specific attention to recognizing the “fight/flight: response, and how to change it.

Breathing techniques are part of each session’s practice. Chair Yoga sequence per your request before guided instruction is part of the curricula.
Each class ends with intention setting for vibrant health, mental clarity, and greater peace and well-being. Students also learn experiences during meditation and how to deepen their home practice.
