You turn to Yoga for your wellbeing because you have a deeper spiritual need.  What we all seek ultimately is freedom, acceptance to be ourselves, and to be loved for who we are. The 8-fold Path of Yoga is a path leading towards Self-Realization – to YOUR “self” . . . . your true nature –
and 5 of the steps on the 8-fold path form the threads that come together as Meditation.

In Yoga, each Soul is potentially Divine . . .  you carry the seed of Divinity within you  . . . and in this practice you are actively realising your Divine Self, your true being, all that you are.

So you are “training” your Soul in your practice.

Essence of Yoga Meditation includes;  in Class 1 – Posture, Breathing, Meditation Mudra,  and Relaxation;  in Class 2 – an introduction to Breath Control – or Pranayama in the Sanksrit;  Class 3 – Withdrawal of the Senses – or Pratyahara;  Class 4 – Focused Attention – Dharana;  Class 5 – Meditation Practice – Dhyana;  and Class 6 – Self-Realisation – Samadhi.

We have Satsangs from some of Yogas most inspirational teachers and masters.: Satyananda, Iyengar, Thich Naht Hahn, Osho, Patanjali . . .   and Sam Singh, my own teacher.

And in the Introduction to Class One there's a note on religion, spirituality and neutrality, explaining terms we use for Divinity with a bit of help from Deepak Chopra.  I also explain the tradition of Satsang and contemplation  . . .   and there is guidance on forming your intent. Essence of Yoga Meditation has been designed for students of all traditions and religions, for complete beginners and returners alike.  Your own personal practice between classes is encouraged and supported.

The Course is available to download for a one off subscription payment of 40euro, each class can be downloaded separately and you can pace your own progress through your Practice.

Essence of Yoga Meditation is a guide to our Sadhana – our practice – Practice is Enlightenment.

Namaste – enjoy!
