COMING SOON IN 2023: Meditation Immersion

Join us for a deep dive into Meditation! We will explore different styles and methods of meditation to discover and fine tune your own personal style while learning to help your students find their own personal style.

This powerful weekend will present the historical, philosophical, and fundamental components of meditation. Several concentration and meditation techniques will be reviewed and practiced during this immersion.

Students will learn the significance of a meditation practice as well as how to guide meditation and centering practices for class instruction. The content of this workshop will be comprised of lecture/discussion/guided practice/peer teaching.

Attendees will learn:
// several different types of meditation as well as their related theories, ways to practice, and associated tools and techniques of those meditation practices

// guided meditation, progressive relaxation, moving meditation, mindfulness practice, and energy-focused contemplation

// the topic of the science of meditation, including details on its physical, mental, and emotional benefits
// a range of meditation philosophies, including traditional schools of thought as well as modern considerations surrounding meditation and mindfulness practices

// techniques and tools to guide a meditative practice to a group of students, and provide insight into the different props, modifications, and variations that can be utilized during a meditation practice

// how to guide students into specific asanas that are beneficial for a meditation practice as well as which props are useful, options to modify, and different variations on this theme

// ways to incorporate meditation into a yoga class, how to format a meditation class or session, tools and techniques to use when teaching to different groups or special populations

// how to teach breathwork techniques, chanting, and the use of crystals during a class

// the impact that meditation practices have on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems

// the ethics of the yoga instructor when offering guided meditation or mindfulness practices as a part of a class

This weekend workshop will be taught by Lynda Saffell. Learn more about her here.
