Meditation For People Who Can't Meditate
Starting at $350
Meditation is often talked about in grandiose terms involving bliss and transcendence. This approach is practical as we explore distracting the mind from its normal thought patterns by giving it somewhere else to go. To accomplish this, you will be guided through gentle movement, and practices involving breath, listening, and humming. Our goal is to take a break from active thought and experience what that feels like, to revive and refresh the nervous system, to regain perspective.
How it works
What do you need? A little bit of floor or a sturdy chair without wheels will serve you well as we take time to decompress. Any and all levels of experience are welcome, beginners and experts will walk away with tips and techniques they can replicate to feel good long after this experience is over.
What to expect? You can expect to think and move outside the box, try new things, or try old things in a new way. I have a deep appreciation for mindfulness practices like restorative yoga and sound baths. I lead meditations using singing bowls, gongs, and chimes with the goal of diving into the subtlety of listening.
Participants will benefit from access to the following props: somewhere to sit or lay down, a blanket, pillows
No lead time is required to book
I have always connected to movement as a means for expression, discipline, joy, and mental/emotional regulation. My formal movement journey began with classical ballet in Georgia, segued into yoga in NYC (2004), and I began teaching in 2010. I love to learn, therefore many traditions influence my teaching: intelligent vinyasa, Iyengar, Physiyoga (the merging of physical therapy techniques and yoga), and meditation.
Depending on the class style, you can expect to think and move outside the box, try new things, or try old things in a new way. My sequencing is both creative and smart, rooted in biomechanics, with a mixture of precision and exploration. I also have a deep appreciation for mindfulness practices like restorative yoga and sound baths. I lead sound meditations using singing bowls, gongs, and chimes with the goal of diving into the subtlety of listening. There is a time to move big and a time to get quiet; my practice over the years has been to listen to which one will bring balance to daily life.
