Join us and learn how to meditate and be mindful to reduce stress, anxiety and heal the body.
Meditation has been proven to assist with relieving conditions such as depression, anxiety and insomnia as well as improving overall, general health. Regular meditation practice teaches you to be aware the breath, the body and of the racing mind – this awareness is the first step to slowing the mind, which then allows us to reduce stress and heal.
zama takes a simple approach to the practice, with techniques derived from a number of traditions without being associated with any one tradition or religion (non-sectarian). This course will teach you different techniques to use in daily life so you can find peace.
During these Immersions, the basics of meditation will be described – an explanation of different meditation styles, how to sit for extended periods and what to expect during the experience of meditation. You will join us in guided meditation, trataka meditation (candle gazing), seated and walking meditations, yoga nidra, chakra meditation and much more! Each time the immersion is offered, different meditation and mindfulness techniques will be experienced. There will be some similarities between the courses, but it is the art of practicing and the dedication to the practice that brings mindfulness, so repetition is beneficial. It’s important to find a technique that suits you in your daily life, and allows you to be mindful when eating, driving, walking and talking. Join us and learn how to meditate for mindfulness, and to reduce stress, anxiety and heal the body.
2017 MEDITATION & MINDFULNESS IMMERSION DATES TO BE RELEASED SOON
“The Mindfulness Immersion course was a great experience. It gave me a great excuse for some time out each week and equipped me with some new ways to practice mindfulness in the day to day! Would definitely recommend it!” – Sarah Ryan
“This course really helped me learn how to calm my mind from all the thoughts and stresses that go on in ones life. With a major change to my mother’s health, it brought on many new challenges and I was having trouble sleeping and it was taking all my energy to stay calm in high stress situations. I started to feel like I couldn’t breath at all and had a heavy weight on my chest. I had read a little bit about mindfulness programs when trying to decide if meditation might help me to slow down, release some stress and invest some time on my own health. I came across the Meditation and Mindfulness program being offered at Zama Yoga after going to my first restorative yoga class. I decided to do it and I’m so glad I did as it introduced me to new techniques in how to handle stress and anxiety and being able to be more present in the moment when practising these techniques. I felt the benefit after the first class. The breathing techniques alone were the biggest help and I have continued on with the Beginners Yoga course this year. If you really want to learn how to get your mind, body and breathing in rhythm to help deal with the stresses of every day life or to understand how they are all connected, I highly recommend doing both of these courses.” Theresa
