REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

Feedback from our Meditation Workshop participants

We all live busy lives.  We all would like to find ways to calm our minds and relax our bodies.  Our monthly meditation workshop offers just that, the exploration of several different ways to meditate, without dogma.

So if you considered meditation before, and are not quite sure where to start, or are wondering if you are “doing it correctly”, or if you even can meditate, then consider joining us for one of our monthly meditation workshops on Sunday mornings from 10 to 1130am.

I asked past participants to tell me in one sentence their reason to attend and what benefit they gained.

“My life is busy, I find peace and quiet in these workshops”.

“For me it’s a way of selfcare”.

“Here, I’m able to let go of physical stress and tension”.

“I know I could meditate more often, but I don’t.  So when I attend, I know this will see me through the next month”.

“It allows me to slow down”.

“It’s very peaceful here.  There is no judgement”.

“It teaches me how to be mindful”.

“My intention is to find balance and clarity”.

“I can find more mindful moments in my life, after what I learn here.

“My word for the year is gentleness”.

“I always find new inspiration for my home practice”.

“It’s a way to sleep and recharge”.

“Meditation helps with my anxiety and better sleep”.

“When I’m here, I actually will meditate”.

“Coming here recharges my batteries”.

“It inspires me.  I always take something new with me”.

“Meditation releases my stress.  I’m more relaxed in the days to follow”.

“I come here to slow down and calm my monkey mind”.

And my personal intention for offering this type of event, is to provide all of the above.  Most of us are much better at holding on and being busy, than letting go, slowing down and relaxing.

My classes and workshops are non-dogmatic. And open to everyone.  The simple idea to calm our minds and relax our bodies is an art and a lifeskill.

Join us on Sunday, March 24th 2019, from 10-1130am and monthly from thereon.

Cost: $25 casual or use your yoga class pass.

Wishing you a relaxed body and a calm mind.

Yin Yoga and Crystal Bowl Sound Meditation – Masterclass of Relaxation

Friday, 8th March | 18:00 – 20:00 | $30

YIN: 1hr
Yin yoga is a quiet, slow-paced and mostly floor based form of yoga, where yoga poses (asanas) are held for a longer period of time to stimulate the deeper layers of connective tissue.

You will be invited to let go of all muscular effort, allow yourself to come into a pose, be supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets and feel a stretch-like sensation that varies in intensity depending on your own personal preference and physical state of being. You will be encouraged to use your breath to soften, calm and quiet your mind and with that the intensity of the physical sensation.

This is a wonderfully relaxing and flexibility increasing style of yoga

CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND MEDITATION: 1hr
As you make yourself comfortable either sitting or lying down, you can completely let go of all sensation, thought or worry and allow the week that was to simply be as it was.

You will be experiencing a deep sense of physical relaxation and calmness of mind while you are completely immersed in the sound and vibrations of the crystal singing bowls.

A deeply healing and relaxing meditation modality.

Here in our MASTERCLASS, we will explore 60mins of YIN YOGA, followed by 60mins of SOUND MEDITATION.

A fabulous way to let go of the week and start the weekend with intent, clarity and calm.

Although this is an additional service for The Art of Balance client community, everyone is welcome.

No yoga or meditation experience is required.

COST: $30
Book via email – bettina@theartofbalance.com.au

Payment of $30 reserves your place, and is due with booking.

Thursday Meditation Class – Every first Thursday of the month

After many appreciated requests for a regular meditation class during the week (as not everybody will be able to attend the Sunday Morning monthly meditation workshop), I’m excited to offer you a monthly meditation class on the first Thursday of each month.

7th March

more dates TBA

This will be held right after our yoga class, from 11.15am to 12.15pm.  You can come for the double (yoga and meditation) or just for one. Cost is $20 or class pass.

It is my mission to allow you to have a pleasant meditation experience.  Meditation is joyful and do-able by everybody.

The emphasis in this class in on experiencing, exploring and allowing. The benefit of meditation lies in the practice, in the doing and exploring. Not so much in the technique. This class also serves the need of the community, as it becomes more obvious through my work in yoga, coaching and healing, that the ability of becoming present, staying focused, clear thinking, calming and slowing our thinking is an essential life skill to have. One that can’t be learned from a book, one that has to be practiced and experienced. Preferrably with permissive guidance.

Be curious, allow yourself to open up to your full potential.

Learn and experience the ART OF MEDITATION in a natural environment, with like-minded people, with an open heart and a curious mind. With me and my experience and wisdom. I’m happy to share and explore with you.
See you on those dates.

This is a casual class and does not require booking.
