Introduction to Meditation Workshop

This workshop is for anyone who wants to start a meditation practice, or energize their existing practice. If you think you can’t meditate, this is your workshop!

.

Meditation Workshop: Saturday Sept. 14, 2019, from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. at Yoga Secrets. Investment: $35

We will start with the basics: how to sit, how to breathe, how to practice slowing down your thoughts and quieting your mind.

Everyone has a different style of meditation, and your style can change over time. In this workshop, we will explore several different kinds of meditation. 

There is no failure with meditation — every meditation done with intention is beneficial. 

Meditation helps us cope with, but not necessarily solve, our problems.
