After Thanksgiving is when it really sets in that we are approaching winter. It's windier, colder and darker out there. But the light within is is still bright. Learn to access that warmth within with easy and relaxed guided meditation. One of our teachers is Australian and one Canadian so both have unique perspectives on dealing with Winter blues!
Meditation is quickly becoming the go-to technique the world over for mental clarity, vitality and happiness!
But to master the “Art of doing nothing” can be challenging (trust me - I know!)
In this class designed for beginners and the experienced alike, we fill in the ‘missing links’ as we prepare the mind, body and spirit for sinking into gentle guided meditation using ancient breath-work techniques (pranayamas).

For Tanu, yoga is not only a practice on the mat, but the art of living life with skill and awareness off the mat. She feels our core nature is happiness, but stress, emotions and diet can affect our mental peace. When we obtain the skills to dissolve stress, nurture vitality and cultivate happiness, we are able to live life with natural ease and creativity … despite life’s ups and downs. Driven by her own challenges and journey into health and happiness, Tanu offers workshops and classes on meditation, yoga, breathing, self-care and wholesome eating based on Ayurveda.
Tanu is one of 2 teachers in Eastern Washington, along with her husband Anand, who are authorised to facilitate meditation, yoga and self-development programs on behalf of the Art of Living Foundation, founded by renowned meditation master and humanitarian Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. She specialises in wholefood education, wellness therapies, children and youth self-development workshops as well as the respected Happiness Program for adults. She has been practicing yoga and meditation for 18 years and teaching for 8.
Being part of the competitive, fast faced, business and engineering world, Anand is no stranger to stress and its impacts. As a young man at university, Anand saw a need to acquire tools that combat negative feelings and promote clarity during times of stress. Inspired by some uplifted friends, Anand was introduced to yoga, breath work and meditation offered by the Art of Living Foundation. Ironically, these were the same skills his parents tried to instil in him as a child, but it was not until he went looking for it himself did they take root. This served as a catalyst on his ongoing journey to becoming the best version of himself and sharing everything he has learned along the way. Anand now teaches what helps him the most: -The Happiness Program - a 3 day self-development workshop offered by the Art of Living Foundation, Yoga for Happiness, Kirtan and helping those looking to transition to a Whole-food, Plant-based diet. Anand has been practicing meditation, breath work and happiness for 18 years and teaching for 8.
