Private and Group Meditation Lessons

Science and medicine are now recognizing the value and benefits of the ancient practice of meditation.  You will experience stretching, easy-to-learn breathing and meditation techniques while seated. This practice will calm and focus the mind and reduce symptoms of tightness and tension as we practice conscious relaxation.  This is a great way to relax and energize at the same time!   The practice of daily meditation has been scientifically proven to increase the quality of life and longevity.   And for a growing number of people, meditation is about reducing stress.  Research shows that meditation is beneficial for reducing the symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, high blood pressure and heart disease.

The one-hour individualized private or group meditation lesson gives you the opportunity to learn meditation techniques that will assist you in developing your own meditation practice. You will learn how to use the breath while focusing the mind to gain a sense of renewed calm, happiness and peace.

I enjoy being able to share the practice of meditation with others. I began practicing meditation in 1984 using transcendental meditation, as a student of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who promoted world peace. My practice has evolved over the years from the TM style to include daily mindfulness. Since 2005, I have been a student of Sri Swami Satchidananda, who was dedicated to bringing together people of all backgrounds and beliefs so that they could learn to respect all different paths and realize their common spirit as peace. In 2011 I successfully completed the teacher training program through the Integral Yoga Academy to teach Meditation: Theory and Practice. I enjoy teaching individuals the techniques of being mindful in their every day lives and establishing a meditation practice to reduce stress and anxiety and regain a sense of calm and peace.
