Intro to Meditation - 4 week series

Saturdays at 9:30 am starting June 6, 7:30 pm

Want to learn to meditate but don't know where to begin?  

Whenever you try to meditate you experience all sorts of obstacles and want to give up?

Meditation is not easy.  In essence you are asking the mind to go from a million thoughts in moments to zero.  You are conditioned to think constantly.  Now you want to recondition the mind to slow down and be quiet.  

With this is mind I have developed a 4 week series to explore the basics of meditation, the obstacles that present themselves, emotions that arise and more.  Receive guidance and ongoing support to develop a regular consistent meditation practice and feel the life changing effects of this amazing practice. 


Please pre-register by contacting me. 
Classes will happen online through Zoom.


Week 1 

- Explore your "why".  Why do you want to meditate? What is your motivation? This is different for everyone.  It is easy to give up and knowing these things will help keep you on track. 
- The importance of consistency and strategies to keep you on track with a daily meditation practice.  (you will have homework, lol, to implement some strategies at home)
- Learn a basic meditation technique, one that is used in Buddhist and Zen meditation practices, that focuses the mind on the breath as you observe without attachment, judgement or evaluation. We will play with mindfulness and awareness to keep the mind focused on the present moment.

Week 2

- Sharing:  How is your home meditation practice going, or not going?
- Explore the need for gentleness with yourself and 6 tips to practice to overcome feeling defeated
- We will play with relaxing into your meditation and how to relax into everything that arises within you as you meditate. 
- We will continue to practice the meditation technique learned in week 1.
- I will guide you into a meditation intuitively according to what we need today.

Week 3 

- Sharing -  how is your home meditation is going, or not going?
- Let's discuss 3 main obstacles people experience in developing a personal meditation practice that is consistent. 
- We will continue to practice the meditation technique learned in week 1.
- I will guide you into a meditation intuitively according to what we need today.

Week 4 

- More wonderful sharing of our experiences with home practice and the obstacles we are encountering. 
- We will discuss working with emotions that arise, discovering peace in the mind, and seeing the effects of meditation transferring into your daily life. 
- We will continue to practice the meditation technique learned in week 1.
- I will guide you into a meditation intuitively according to what we need today.

$60 + hst = $67.80 for full 4 week session.  
Seniors $52 + hst = $58.75 for full 4 week session. 
Or, pay what you can manage.  These are tough times for many and meditation is a needed tool to help us through this time.  Don't let money be your obstacle to join me.

Private or Semi-Private Yoga/ Meditation

Not comfortable with a group class?  Can't fit the scheduled classes into your life?  

Arrange Private or Semi-Private classes!   

Simply contact us to arrange time and location.

The benefit of private or semi-private classes is that you can tailor the classes to your needs and what you would specifically like to experience with your yoga or meditation practice!

The format of the classes can be anything from longer time spent in deep relaxation or incorporating playing with mantras or mudras or meditation. We can even tailor a class to do standing postures only or postures specifically aimed at strengthening core.  There is no limit to what can do!

Class Descriptions

Classical Yoga

Classical Yoga

Classical Yoga

 Practice BEING, learning to focus the mind within, observe the self, perhaps glimpsing the Higher Self and just breathe.  As we play with traditional postures done in a traditional way - settle in and hold the posture, listen, watch and be in the experience and release - we have the opportunity to apply the practices of yoga philosophy first hand. We hit each category of posture - standing/ balancing poses, back bends, forward bends, inverted, resting and spinal twist - with a few others thrown in for stretching and we finish class with the blissful guided deep relaxation and meditation of Yoga Nidra.  Modifications are always shown for more challenge and/or for body restrictions.  Yoga at your own pace and your personal abilities. Leave class with greater mental focus, a worked and looser body and feeling at peace.


Chair Yoga

Classical Yoga

This is Classical Yoga without getting down onto the floor.  Class begins with consciously observing the mind and the breath to train the mind to focus within.  Postures begin with a modified sun salutation done standing and progresses into a variety of leg and core work while seated in a chair, includes leg lifts, pike, cat/cow, spinal twist.  Class then moves into standing postures including crescent, tree, warriors, chair and more and ends with some gentle stretching both standing and seated in the chair.  The finale is a guided deep relaxation and peace meditation while seated.  Leaving class you will feel content and peaceful and focused.

The 5 Tibetans

Classical Yoga

Yoga Nidra with Reiki

 An  intense yogic practice ...

 The 5 Tibetans have been around for centuries.  It is a practice of 5 yogic exercises designed specifically to awaken the kundalini energies and ignite the chakra system. The 5 Tibetans leave you feeling alert yet peaceful and mentally clear while also experiencing a sense of physical well-being. Each Tibetans is repeated up to 21 times intensely moving in and out of a posture or moving from one posture to another and back again. The movements fire up the muscles, the energies and the heat within.  As you gain momentum the experience intensifies.  Class includes gentle yogic stretching postures after the Tibetans are performed and class ends with Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra with Reiki

Relax deeply and completely!  Let stress melt away as you are guided into a physical deep relaxation and peace meditation.  Yoga Nidra is known as yogic sleep where the body relaxes so completely it falls asleep even though the mind is still conscious as it drifts into a meditative state.  It is said that a half hour of yogic sleep is as if the body has had a full nights rest.  While you float in that state of deep relaxation of mind and body I offer Reiki to each person to help deepen the experience and balance the energies in the body.  Wake feeling refreshed! 


Restorative Yoga with Reiki

 Prepare to be Bliss!  Yes, BE Bliss itself.  Restorative Yoga is done completely supported by cushions and your only job is to fully let go and relax.  The body opens and stretches very gently all by itself.  This form of yoga is meant to restore you body and your mind and nurture your spirit.  As you relax in each position Susan goes around the room doing Reiki on each student to help balance energies and deepen the experience of rejuvenation.  This 2 hour specialty workshop is offered once or twice a month.  Watch for date announcements.  Or better yet, join the email list and get notifications on dates and space left in each session.  Space is limited so be sure to register early!

Evening class to be announced soon.

Classical Yoga: Emphasis Alignment

Explore common yoga postures in finite detail.  How do you hold your pelvis is Tree pose?  How do your shoulders sit when in warrior - shrugged up full of tension or perhaps rolled slightly forward?  What do you do with the shoulder blades in plank?  Or the neck in a spinal twist?    

This class is exactly as the title suggests: we will run through a full yoga class, though more slowly, with an emphasis on really consciously placing the body in alignment and feeling our way deeply into each pose. Even if you have little experience with yoga postures this is a great way to learn the nuances of each posture. Repetition and attention to detail will pay off. Let your postures evolve. 


Playing with Advanced Postures

Classical Yoga: Emphasis Alignment

Classical Yoga: Emphasis Alignment

image13

  For experienced peeps who want to play with new things and more advanced versions of postures. 

This is a Classical Yoga class with more time devoted to trying new postures that are typically more advanced like bow pose, crow, headstand and advanced versions of bridge, shoulder stand, fish and triangle. Some of these you have played with before so do not feel it is out of your range of ability. If you are not ready for headstand, then we will find a different posture for you to do.  Some postures will be great for you, others you may not be ready for. It is all perfect. Come and see what your body and mind can do with a little nudge and guidance.

   The basics/ foundation - for newbies and for those wanting to learn or rediscover the foundations of yoga.  This class will start at the beginning. What is yoga? What are the main practices that set the foundation for all other practices? How do we breathe in yoga and why is it so important?  How do I settle the mind to become present? What is mindfulness? Learn a series of common yoga postures, getting to know the body and the mind and who you are. 

You will get the most out of this experience if you sign up for the full session. No worries if you have to miss a class, you will still learn everything you need. ...
