The Art of Meditation with Maryon Maass

This ancient system 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 within. 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 for the nervous system and the brain to benefit for long term. Beginners and seasoned students welcome.

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.

Kaiser for Stoke Patients

yoga_meditation_breathingKaiser has a regular monthly meeting for stroke patients. Last week (July 27) I presented a class for members and their caretakers. I explained what yoga is, and how practicing the “art of yoga” can effectively help with many physical and cognitive issues.

I covered topics, such as the use of the breath, and how the nostrils are a way to understand the relationship of the breath to the brain, then the mind, and the emotions. This understanding can make huge differences in ones energy levels.

Also covered the simplest of exercises called joints and glands. These movements were possible for each of the participants who were there, whether they were able to stand or sit. We used visualizations for those who were not able to physically move.

The participants and the social worker felt that the class was very useful and they had very practical experiences to take with them to use on a daily basis.

Yoga Nidra

Learning to relax consciously is a skill. Practice, and feel the peace within.
                     This benefits the nervous system thus eliminates stress in the body and mind.

 Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in shavasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. Included are gentle movements for rejuvenation. All levels welcome.
