Islington, London-September 2019 Eight Week Meditation Course
September 12 @ 6:30 pm - October 31 @ 7:30 pm£110
Learn how to observe the natural breath in order to experience inner peace and to change negative thought pattern
The purpose of technique, referred to by Patanjali as Prana Samyama, is to bring balance and harmony to the mind. In the long term it has the power to transform negative mind patterns leading to profound peace and happiness. Meditation on the natural breath is central to Yoga and Buddhist systems, as well as to contemporary mindfulness models.
The course offers the opportunity to learn and practice the technique in a focused and sustained way over 8 weeks with the support of an experienced and certified Traditional Yoga teacher to guide you through the progressive stages and answer any questions that may arise.
It is taught in the tradition of Patanjali, through a series of guided meditations by Dr. Kumar, the founder of Traditional Yoga, maintaining a direct link to the original instructions and scriptures in which they have been preserved for centuries. Dr. Kumar is an international recognised as an inspirational yoga and meditation teacher/teacher trainer as well as an award-winning scientist.
Suitable for anyone over the age of 15 who wishes to learn a truly transformative meditation technique.
