Meditation is a powerful + transformative Mindfulness practice, which helps cultivate awareness and acceptance of the present moment.
There are many types of meditation. The most common form is “concentration meditation” and uses breath as an anchor. I personally love this form of meditation – it focuses attention on the breath and sensations within the body – asking students to feel + connect with their body from the inside out. Breathing exercises are also common in meditation practices. I incorporate them into my meditation offerings to help focus the mind, move stagnant energy + create space within, and to help guide the body + mind into a more relaxed state. I like to end my meditations with a mantra or affirmation. I find they are great tools to help focus the mind, while also rewiring the neural pathways and thought patterns in the brain.
Some benefits of Meditation include:
- Reduces stress + anxiety
- Increases sense of well-being
- Increases sense of connectedness + empathy
- Improves focus + mental clarity + memory
- Increases creativity + decision-making
- Improves cardiovascular health
- Enhances your immune system
- Reduces physical + emotional pain
Through each meditation, I seek to help students feel more grounded in their body, open in their heart and relaxed in their mind.
1-on-1 Meditation Session
Are you new to meditation and don’t know where to start? Or are you a more seasoned meditation student who is looking to deepen your practice? I love guiding private meditation sessions. Options include a thoughtfully crafted weekly, bi-weekly or monthly meditation practice.
Group Meditation Session
Stress and anxiety are becoming more common in the workplace. Work-life balance can be difficult to maintain. Meditation can help to improve focus, productivity, performance + overall wellbeing. Offering a weekly or monthly meditation in your workplace, is a great way to support your teams, foster a greater sense of community and promote general wellness.
For Youth, Dancers, & Athletes
I craft meditation offerings specifically for youth to help them become more aware of their thoughts, present in their lives and connected with their bodies. Some themes include: cultivating self-love, self-compassion and self-acceptance; surrender + forgiveness, and courage + vulnerability.
The heart of skillful meditation is the ability to let go and begin again, over and over again.
Even if you have to do that thousands of times during a session, it does not matter. Nothing has been ruined, and there is no such thing as failing. There is nowhere the attention can wander to, and no duration of distraction, from which we cannot completely let go, in a moment, and begin again.
