Calm your body and mind, and enjoy a specially formulated guided meditation. No previous experience required. Suitable for all ages, abilities and levels of fitness and concentration.
These classes are held 6:30pm – 7:45pm every Thursday evening starting Thursday 19th Jan 2017.
All are welcome!
In the first 45 mins, we go through a sequence of simple yet very effective techniques including yoga postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), deep relaxation, and hand gestures (mudras) that allow your body and mind to be in the most optimum state for meditation.
The class varies each week to give you a good cross-section of techniques that you can use on a daily basis to calm your body and mind.
And once your mind is more cleared from the clutter (stress/ anxiety/ overthinking) from your week, and your body is more relaxed and restful, you’re taken through a 30 minute – 3 stage guided meditation.
Most people find that the 30 minute guided meditation goes by surprisingly quickly and is very easy and relaxing to sit through.
The theme of each weekly meditation will be based on what’s happening on the planet astrologically and numerologically. If there’s a full moon, a new moon, a solar or lunar eclipse, or any other planetary influence of note, Kylie will formulate the meditation that best suits that current energetic environment.
You don't need any previous experience at meditation (or yoga) to participate in, and enjoy the full benefits of this class.
You don’t need to be able to sit on the floor, as meditation can easily be achieved sitting on a chair.
You don’t need to be able to sit still for long periods of time. Kylie will show you ways to achieve a restful sitting position, on the floor or chair. But also encourages that you move your legs around and stretch if you start to feel uncomfortable.
You don’t need to be able to “clear” your mind or concentrate for long periods of time to successfully meditate. Kylie will clear up many of the common myths and misconceptions about meditation, and will show you how easy it is to achieve a regular meditation routine, without all the fuss and stress.
These classes are completely suitable for beginners and also for those who meditate regularly.
Bookings are essential as there are limited spaces.
Cost = $20 casual visit OR $150 for a 10 class Meditation pass
Kylie will also be making some of the popular meditations available to purchase, for those interested in setting up a daily practice, as the weeks go by.
Bring a water bottle, comfortable clothing for some light yoga, a meditation pillow or blanket (if you have one - otherwise there are chairs, cushions, yoga mats and blankets at the studio).
