The Art of Meditation with Maryon Maass

This workshop is meant to explore the dimensions of meditation- from body, to breathing, to mind. At the level of the physical self, it will help you find a quiet stillness. At the level of the breath, it will lead to an uncoupling from the tensions and negativity of daily life. At the level of mind, it will help you to learn to rest in a quiet center of being.

Beginners and seasoned students welcome. Feel free to repeat as often as you like as practice makes perfect.

Shavasana decreases heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and general levels of anxiety.  It increases energy levels, boosts memory, and stimulates the ability to concentrate. It gives you a more easy sleep and brings a general sense of well-being.

Yoga Nidra
Combining relaxation techniques with the unique practice of “Exercise Without Movement,” yoga nidra helps us travel deeply within. The goal is greater inner awareness of the body, our states of consciousness, and how the mind manages the body.
