with Renée Silvus
Included in membership, patronage, or $25 suggested drop-in donation.

We’ve read headlines and heard stories about the wonders of meditation. Here is your chance to learn more in a safe, comfortable place.

Some basics we’ll discuss:

  • What is meditation anyway? You’re probably already doing it.
  • The benefits of yoga asana to support your practice.
  • Doing an morning internal dialogue first.
  • Why is it called a practice?
  • How to sit comfortably.
  • Movement may be your method.
  • Working with your mind.
  • Breathing and ways to focus and concentrate.
  • And more. Bring your questions.

Renee will guide you through meditation as taught by the Himalayan Yoga Tradition. We will practice for short periods, interspersed with discussion and a short break.

Highly recommended: please attend the 9am yoga asana class next door at Shanti Yoga Studio.
