This page announces - both occasional "Going Deeper" sessions ideally suited for those already attending regular weekly meetings - wishing to deepen the experience and learn additional techniques and full Special One Day Retreats.
Going Deeper with your Yoga
It is for people who have been attending public meetings and are at the stage where they are meditating regularly at home and ready to move on.
A typical format:
· Welcome and introduction (we will introduce mantras with a translation of the Sanskrit)
· Meditation - using the mantras so the you can learn and have an opportunity to join in or at least listen to the group saying mantras collectively.
· Shri Mataji's video talk (more in-depth subject matter)
· Workshop (Try out & enjoy a foot soak - a great technique to cleanse the right side channel & lower three chakras)
· Refreshments/post workshop opportunity for Q&A and networking
We share tips on how to help stay in balance during the day and how to meditate at home. The meditation is based on connecting with the inner chakras (energy centres) and balancing the subtle body. The tradition and aims of meditation are explained which in essence is to be in the present with no mental activity or thoughts about the past or the future.
One Day Retreats
Occasionally there are 1 day retreats to help those interested, deepen their individual experience and hear advice and tips from those who have been practicing for some time. It’s ultimately all about getting into ‘thoughtless awareness’, a natural state of being.
Sahaja Yoga - weekly Meetings
With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we generally sit on chairs to achieve Yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. As such no Asanas (exercises) are required, no mat or special clothing.
We are all volunteers of a Charity organisation and have many years of experience in offering free Sahaja Yoga Meditation classes.
The classes are designed to help those attending get into a genuine meditative state, which can be felt tangibly. It is quite effortless and spontaneous. The free classes feature introductory talks, video's, practical workshops and general question and answer opportunities, making them perfect for seekers trying to establish a state of yoga, and they are available across London most evenings and throughout the UK. The idea is that you don't do yoga - you Achieve Yoga!
Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple, time-honored technique. It helps those who enjoy it, reduce stress and increase wellness. It brings better focus and helps people become more centered and better balanced. Anyone can do it. Founded by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a world wide movement for peace and self awakening. All the meetings and classes are free of any charge.
