Simple Chakra Meditation

We use a very simple technique to practice Nyasa meditation – placing awareness on each of the chakras using gentle breathing, and then spending a few moments just feeling the effects. There is nothing fancy here, and I find this very effective to awaken sensitivity and consciousness in the whole spine.

Nyasa meditation 2

In this meditation we let our awareness flow over the ‘energetic’ spine, from the tailbone to the crown of the head. For a lot of us its difficult to ‘feel’ the spine, so sometimes we need to visualise it. We just take a look at the skeleton to see where the spine runs, how it […]

This is not a long lecture on the […]

Short Physical Prep for Meditation

This is not really a class, just a short sequence of movements I enjoy doing before I sit to meditate. It is meant to stimulate some chi flow through the body, which I find it helps me to sit longer. As I say in the introduction, everybody is different; you may find you don’t need […]

Second Chakra Flow

This class is a little bit different, as it uses body movements to awaken some energy around the lower belly, house of our second chakra. We move around quite a bit, activating muscles for sure, in the hope that when we sit for meditation later in class it will be easier to feel the area. […]
