Meditation Taster

Meditation Taster

During this Taster you will get a great introduction to Meditation for the light hearted and mobiltiy is not an issue.  A special time and place for you to put aside so that you can learn proven techniques to reduce stress and anxieties, to kick start creativity and motivation by becoming more centred and self aware.  This is an opportunity to learn various guided meditational techniques to chase the 'monkey mind' as well as to connect with like minded people. 

What can I expect to learn?   Learn about yourself, what Meditations work for you and what doesn't.  Proven Meditation styles and techniques on how to recognise stress in your body and mind and not forgetting proven breathing techniques.  I am a Yoga teacher so I will often incorporate certain yoga techniques to support these process.  The restorative/gentle Asan (pose) can support the more anxious learners learn to let go and become more present in self and mind. For those with limited ablitly a chair is fine.

What do I need to know before I start?  This is a light hearted approach to Meditation it is for the novice or for those who have struggled with Meditation in the past or just want to get back into Meditation. Having a go and trying different techniques and exploring what works for you and what doesn't. There will be a small amount of gentle yoga poses however this is not important so if you have limited mobility that is not an issue the focus is on Meditation so please if you are not mobile or are very limited a chair is fine, the essential goal is the Mediation and breathing.

What do I need to have?   A device that can be used to participate in a Zoom meeting.  Wear comfortable clothing.  A comfortable private space big enough to enable yourself to move freely.  A place to position your device so that you can see Jennifer. Pillows, blankets/towels and chair. 

What will be provided?   The tutor will email the Zoom invite link with meeting ID and password plus any handouts needed prior to the session starting, please review these.

How will the Zoom session run?  This taster will run for 60 mins total which will be made up of 2 x 30 min Zoom sessions with a 5-10 min break between each. 

The aim of this Taster is to create a safe space for learners to try something new. This is for beginners however you are welcome to join this taster to refresh any prior knowledge.
