The ancient yogis tell us that calm is a high vibration. Higher than ecstasy. Meaning, your best orgasm ever wasn’t as good as the true experience of inner peace and calm. Yup. Wow. The ancient rishis actually did the poses to keep their bodies limber and their spines strong so they could comfortably spend hours deep in meditation receiving this cosmic download and experiencing this calm vibration.
Great, but how? Meditation sounds pretty fabulous on paper, but when you actually try to sit quietly, it can make you feel more frantic than calm.
Kate Smith will discuss the basics of meditation. Why meditate? How to meditate? What are some ways you could use props to sit more comfortably? Should the mind be empty or full? What is mindfulness? After a brief lecture on meditation, Kate will guide us through a short Yin Yoga practice to ease our bodies and minds into stillness. The evening will end with aguided chakra meditation. Please don’t be intimidated. No previous experience is needed. And you don’t have to be able to sit in lotus.
Please show up to this Yoga Hive with a yoga mat and wearing comfortable clothes that you can do some easy yin poses in. We have plenty of props to bolster you up for meditation. If you don’t have a mat, you can borrow one.
