Introduction to Mindfulness meditation, 4 week Beginner class.
Yoga and Mindfulness Series
WHY is everyone talking about Mindfulness lately?
Research has shown that mindfulness practices, such as yoga and cultivating stillness, can
significantly increase the capacity for children to learn, manage stress, manage distractions
and develop a sustained sense of well being. In addition to this, there are many other
benefits to yoga and mindfulness. Here are just a few:
Improved memory and comprehension
Improved emotional management
Measurable increase in feeling happier!
As experienced meditators will tell you, the skill of meditation is not something easily accomplished by reading about it in a book or attending a single introductory talk. Meditation is both simple and subtle and asks us to patiently re-train our bodies and minds in peace and simplicity. It is something that takes practice. Developing a practice, it helps to have the support of a live instructor, the opportunity to practice, ask questions and learn from experience.
The purpose of this course is to introduce the fundamental techniques of meditation and stress reduction in a structured 8-week program. Topics covered in this introductory series include:
- The purpose of meditation
- How it works
- Training in attention
- Awareness of Breathing
- Common challenges and remedies
- Benefits of the practice
Each weekly meeting will include guided meditation, talks, and discussion. The class format is set up to provide opportunity for personal guidance from a qualified teacher as well as for sharing experiences with others in the class. Seating options include chairs or meditation cushions.
For those relatively new to meditation, this is the place to start.
Join Rachael Hunter and Kristin Page for a Winter respite in magical Tulum, Mexico. Inviting to the soul, Tulum is renowned for it’s beautiful and healing crystal clear blue waters, pristine white sand beaches, bohemian atmosphere and yogic wonderland.
Tulum is the perfect place for a Winter respite. Immerse yourself in this magical environment with sun, sand, beautiful blue water, deliciously nourishing food and twice daily all-levels yoga and meditation all at the one and only Amansala Eco Resort. Beachside accommodations and private terraces, open air dining and a gorgeous sunset lounge offer a tranquil setting for you to re-set body, mind and spirit.
As we approach the end of WInter, taking a day to slow down, reflect, and reset is possibly the best gift we can offer ourselves and those around us.
Our yoga practice is a way for us to both rejuvenate and energize, physically and mentally. In this one day retreat we will step back from the busyness and get reacquainted with the calm steadiness that we cultivate through breath, movement and stillness.
Starting with a 2h morning practice we will build heat through pranayama and a slow strong vinyasa practice - easing tension and boosting energy. Transitioning into reflection, and closing with a loving-kindness guided meditation and a sweet savasana. A 90 minute lunch break gives us time to nourish our bodies with a fresh delicious juice delivered from The Juice Merchant, or explore the delightful cafes and restaurants of Narberth.
In the afternoon we will slow it down with a gentle vinyasa flow to land and settle, and finish with a yin flow to invite in stillness and calm.
Suitable for all levels.
Yoga Teacher Training Module- Yoga and Meditation for Yoga Teachers
Join Kristin and Rachael in Northern Iceland to explore one of the most beautiful and peaceful placed on earth. This is a trip of a lifetime that will be both an inner exploration through yoga and meditation, and an outer exploration of a wonderland of moonlike lava fields, snow capped volcanic peaks and geothermal hot springs at 66 degrees North, just south of the arctic circle.
Fairytale Icelandic winter whites will be the backdrop for this spectacular week with sun during the day and bright moonlit nights providing fascinating light shows–including a possible mystic dance of the Northern Lights. The cold outside is balanced beautifully by the hot geothermal baths and Jacuzzis that is a national past-time of the warm and adventurous Icelandic people.
In this majestic and tranquil landscape, morning yoga classes will be followed by group excursions and explorations.
The Art of Moving With Intention- A special New Year's practice
The Winter Solstice marks an auspicious day, when we begin to emerge from the darkness back into the light. On this shortest day of the year, that embodies the yin qualities of darkness, introspection and grounding, we can honor the pause as we celebrate the return of the light, growth and activity of yang.
// Winter Reset // An Urban Retreat with Kristin Page and Rachael Hunter
As we head into the Fall Season, this is a perfect time to pause, reflect and dive deep into moving forward with clear intentions. Weather we realize it or not, our entire life manifests on the tip of our intentions. Often times we move through life with surface intentions, not even realizing what is our deepest alignment. This workshop will be an exploration and excavation into your deepest hearts alignment through meditation, mindful-vinyasa and reflection.
We will begin with a talk about intentions and take time to reflect through writing and guided meditation. We will move through a slow, spacious, rhythmic all-levels vinyasa, and end with a guided meditation. You will leave with a greater alignment to your hearts intention.
Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring a journal and pen.
Rise and Shine!
