Mindfulness and Meditation in Yoga
Learning to Meditate with Jen
Meditation can mean sitting cross legged in silence, but it can also be walking in nature, watching the sunrise, or playing a musical instrument. Meditation is learning to be with yourself, a ‘self’ which is peace and stillness, beyond the dramas of the mind and the turbulence of the emotions. Regular practice will have a profound effect on your life – and all of it positive!
Meditation is a spiritual practice but like yoga, does not interfere with religion or beliefs. Regular meditation restore us to homeostasis, reducing stress and improving sleep patterns, it can also transform your relationship with yourself, others and life. Please get in touch if you’d like to begin meditating and don’t know where to start or if you have an established practice and would like guidance or support.
My qualifications & study are rooted in the Buddhist and Hindu traditions and I regularly attend silent meditation (Vipassana) retreats. I’ve adapted what I’ve learnt from these ancient teachings and tailored it for living in the modern world.
