Meditating on the natural breath has the power to bring balance and harmony to the mind.
This technique, referred to by Patanjali as Prana Samyama is central to Yoga and Buddhist systems.
The teaching is supported by audio recordings by Dr. Kumar.
A home practice recording is available to all students who complete the course.
Suitable for beginners and as a refresher for those who have already learned
Benefits of this technique include
The release of deep stress
Mindfulness in the present moment
Greater concentration and focus
An increasingly balanced, positive and contented mind
Increased will power, independence and compassion
Transformation of unhelpful tendencies of the mind (e.g. negative rumination, anxiety and anger)
Subtler awareness of self and others
9.30am to 4.30pm with morning and afternoon breaks.
The course involves a sequential series of meditation sessions that introduce the technique. Between each session there will be an opportunity to ask questions, have a short break and stretch. We will have a morning and afternoon tea break, serving herbal tea and an hour lunch break. There will be a ‘yoga nidra’ relaxation session after lunch. Theory will be covered through introductory talks and group discussions about the meditation practice will take place throughout the weekend.
The course teaches the progressive steps of the technique that can be continued as a daily practice or used as a basis for working with the mind more deeply on a residential course.
What to Bring
A meditation cushion if you have one. Otherwise, two ordinary cushions or pillows.
A Yoga mat or rug or blanket to lie down on for the ‘Yoga nidra’ relaxation session.
A blanket to cover yourself during the Yoga nidra session, as the body temperature tends to cool down.
A bottle of water.
Plenty of places to find lunch nearby, alternatively please feel free to bring a packed lunch.
