Yoga and Meditation

Meditation is part of a broader picture: the Yoga philosophy. Developed by the ancient Indian rishis (seers) thousands of years ago, the Yoga philosophy applies still to our modern life. Along with meditation techniques, the class will explore the sheaths of the body, vital, mind and heart, and the concept and evolution of the soul. (This is not a Hatha Yoga class)

Ayurveda and Meditation

Ayurveda and Meditation share the same goal: to regain the lost connection with our true nature and thus achieve the body-vital-mind balance that brings about harmony and happiness in life. Rooted in ancient India, Ayurveda awakens in us the wisdom that leads to vibrant health and realization of our full potential.
