Does the concept of meditation sound distant and ethereal? Do images of yogis seated cross-legged with their fingers touching come to mind? Did you know that you meditate all the time doing everyday tasks? And that yes…meditation is accessible to everyone and it’s a really simple practice that has no room for the notion of enlightenment. Nope. Meditation is for the average person do find moments of quiet and stillness throughout their day be it doing the dishes or sitting in Lotus pose.
Yoga is the fine-tuning of our awareness to observe the subtle. As yoga instructors, we become adept at cueing the ‘gross’, like the form of asana and the chug of the breath but cultivating an awareness of the ‘subtle’ is a skill that takes time to foster. If the purest form of guided meditation feels like plucking words from the ether, how can you build a language that guides your students to these places? How can you lean on your own experience to inform your teaching?
This unique course aims to foster both an experiential and intellectual relationship to seated yogic meditation. Becoming an authentic and effective meditation instructor emerges from ones’ relationship with the modality. This course assists you in fostering that relationship through a curated, 10-week meditation program and creative workbook. To inspire and infuse your progress, we meet for monthly check-ins and mini lectures where we toggle the theory of meditation with other lenses like the nervous system response and neuroscience.
