The very purpose of our physical yoga practice is to prepare the mind for purposeful concentration. We move and stretch the body so that when we sit for meditation, we are able to be still and calm. The door to this state is our intention. The key to that door is our breath.

In this class we will be exploring the different available meditation techniques ranging from Mantra Repetition, Mudra Hand Positions, Chakra Energy Stimulation, Guided Visualization, and Yoga Nidra / Rest. Each of these ancient practices are intimately connected to the conscious regulation of our inhales and exhales known as Pranayama.

During the session, you will be invited to discover the power of focused group practice to be continued in your private meditation practice.
This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.
