Active Meditation is designed for emotional release, creating space within ourselves. We have a tendency to repress a lot of emotions, and these become trapped within our bodies causing stress, anxiety and restlessness. With these stuck in our bodies, we are unable to experience peace in body and mind.
In Active Meditations, we work the body shaking out and releasing all these trapped energies so that we can experience stillness, moving naturally from action to relaxation.
The classes are regularly held in the Dublin Bikram Yoga Studio every Tuesday at 8.30pm. If you are joining for the first time, please arrive at 8.15pm. There are other classes held in Mayo/Galway but please contact us for any information or if you would like to organise a class in your area.
Who can come?
No experience is needed, we start from the beginning and the practices will be introduced carefully. However, if you are on any medication or have any medical or mental conditions, please contact your care provider to see whether this form of meditation is suitable for you. Please notify us if this is the case.
What should I bring?
Please bring comfortable clothing and water. There is no need for a yoga mat or other accessories.
Guidelines for class
There are a few guidelines for each class:
- Please arrive 10 minutes before class so that we can start on time
- Please place your mobile phone on silent and never bring them into the studio as it can disrupt the meditation
- We have a question and answer session at -the end of every class. You do not need to stay for the Q&A session but can leave as soon as the class has been completed
- If you decide to stay for the Q&A session, please be courteous and leave after a question has been answered or if there is a gap between questions
All our weekly classes are donation based. The suggested donation is €10 per adult and €5 per student.
