Meditation and Mindfulness: “Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.
Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.” See http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/topic/mindfulness/definition-
Each class will offer a method that helps promote ease and balance. Various forms of meditation may be a way to look at the reactive mind. Yoga postures, walking, and other forms of movement may also be supportive when done with curious attention to our body/mind relationship. In addition, using mindfulness practices supports relief from suffering, and compassion for yourself and others. It is available in each step and breath you take.
One of the types of meditation is Yoga Nidra/iRest.The state of Yoga Nidra is defined as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness.
This practice not only calms the nervous system, it creates inner resolve.
With the use of defining your individual intention (sankalpa) towards wholeness and well being, one is guided into meditative inquiry and discovery. While resting in a state of ultimate harmony (the state of yoga nidra) in which brain waves slow down, one emerges rejuvenated with ease. This practice continues to bring support in our daily lives, so that we can meet and greet all the challenges, changes, and life transitions life brings.
