Ashtead 8 Week Meditation Weekend Course

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 @ 8:15 pm - Wednesday, November 1, 2017 @ 9:15 pm

Learn how to observe the natural breath in order to experience inner peace and to change negative thought patterns.

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, maintaining a direct link to the original instructions and scriptures in which they have been preserved for centuries.

Suitable for anyone over the age of 15 who wishes to learn a truly transformative meditation technique.


“Dr. Kumar’s meditation method almost instantly transformed my meditation practice. Vanessa is a truly inspiring teacher, able to guide you through the various stages. Highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to experience this life-enhancing practice.“ – Alice Day

I have been meditating for some years, but it’s been invaluable to hear Vanessa explain the profound thinking behind this particular technique and guide us gently through each step. Sharing the experience with a class really takes it to a different level. I have found the course both deeply relaxing and enriching – and we’re only half way through it!” – Katie Stephens

Course led by Jackie Coleman

Jackie was first drawn to yoga in her twenties as a way to manage stress and relax. After leaving her practice for a few years, she rolled out her mat again five years ago to help deal with anxiety and bereavement and has never looked back. Yoga is more than just a physical practice, it is a way of life and it was through her teacher training in 2015 that she started a regular meditation practice. Jackie now shares yoga and meditation around Surrey and East Sussex, bringing the healing benefits that both practices have to offer to adults and children. Jackie has a particular interest in working with groups such as adult mental health and older adults.
