The nature of modern life is extremely busy, stressful and demanding and one that leaves little time to nurture and connect with our true selves. We are all familiar with the health benefits of meditation and all know we should be meditating every day, but for many of us it is an extremely difficult and daunting endeavour. In this session you will learn simple meditation techniques paired with the serene sounds and healing vibrations of the Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls to help you reach Samadhi.
Samadhi is a state of meditative absorption. One of infinite peace, bliss, divine connection and healing where time and space disappear. It is the highest state of pure consciousness we can attain and it is considered the goal of yoga. In this session you will be introduced to the preparatory steps to lead you into this divine state.
You will learn some simple yogic techniques to prepare our bodies and quiet the mind. Following this you will experience a Tibetan Sound Meditation, an effortless way to ease your body and mind into a deeply relaxed meditative state using the soothing sounds and deep vibrations of Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls.
The techniques you will learn in this class are straight forward, simple and effective. You will gain confidence in incorporating these tools in your daily life to assist you in building a daily meditation practice.
This session will be comprised of gentle pre-meditative asana, kriya, pranayama, a seated sound meditation and samyama.
For those interested in the science that speaks to the physiological effects and benefits of Samadhi and Tibetan Sound Healing - during these experiences, we are awake but our brainwaves fall in to delta waves (what we experience during deep sleep). When we experience delta brainwaves the mind and body recuperates and rebuilds. It’s when growth hormones are secreted to heal muscles and repair damage to tissues. It is also when the glial cells are restored to provide energy for the brain. As we get older there is a decline in the amount of delta brainwaves we experience during deep sleep and through meditation, sound healing and reaching a state of samadhi, we can supplement the restorative benefits we may not be experiencing as we sleep.
*No prior yoga or meditation experience is required.*
