What is meditation:
"There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind – and to change them for the better. This is the only real antidote to our own personal sorrows, and to the anxieties, fears, hatreds, and general confusions that beset the human condition.
Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It uses techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energised states of mind. Such a practice can lead to a new outlook on life.

Meditation with Chasing Nirvana Yoga:
In a meditation class with Chasing Nirvana Yoga, the instructor will use mindfulness and other awareness and relaxation techniques to guide the mind of the group into a single-pointed center within. Gradually, participants find themselves entering an inner space of deep stillness and peace as the mind is guided into the brain frequency associated with meditation and higher sensory perception. It is our hope that what you learn in session, you will help guide you into a less stressed state at work and at home.
Classes are 45 minutes, 30 minutes of actual meditation with 15 minutes to allow people to fill the space, class check in, and time for questions and journaling (if the participant chooses). We suggest all participants bring a yoga mat to either lay down on or fold and use as a cushion to sit on. If the property has no open space, a conference room with chairs can be set up for participants to sit in. Ideally, the chairs are stable, do not recline and are not on wheels. Business attire / street clothes are acceptable as long as you feel comfortable seated on the floor or laying down in these clothes.
