Meditation is our naturally occurring rest state, where our body heals, re-energises, rests, releases tension, integrates, and assimilates information. Using tools that are simple and repetitive, we teach an instinctive approach to meditation, promoting a state of conscious awareness within ourselves and our world around us. We teach that forming this into a habit of daily practice will allow you to be more considered, conscientious and relaxed in your every day lives.
Meditation also allows us to gain a greater perspective, to sharpen the mind and to deeply relax the body. This essential practice helps to balance both the mind and the body, allowing us to deal with the stress and speed of life.
Every Selph Yoga class has a meditation practice, so you can discover the natural wonders and delight that surround us as gateways into an effortless place of meditation.
