Preparatory practices

As preparation for meditation, gentle Restorative yoga will be taught twice a day. This helps to improve muscular relaxation.

Pranayama

Pranayama is breathing techniques. Pranayama has two aspects: breath regulation and breath observation. Pranayama is an essential aspect of meditation practice. Pranayama purifies the mind and prepares the mind for meditation. It facilitates oneself to concentrate while meditating intensely. It detoxes the mind and the body, as well as helping you to reach the inner realm of awareness.

Mudra practices

Mudras are the flow of energy in the body. The position of the hands while practising a meditation technique is critical. Mudras are a combination of subtle physical movements which alter the mood, attitude, and perception and which deepens awareness and concentration. Mudras enable the meditation practitioner to develop a knowledge of the flow of prana, the vital energy in the body. Ultimately, they establish pranic balance within the organisation and redirect the subtle energy to the upper chakras, inducing higher states of consciousness.

Kriyas

This is the daily practice of therapeutic yoga which includes neti - yogic nostril cleansing, trataka - gazing at the flame to improve concentration, and shambhavi mudra - preparatory practice for Third Eye meditation.

Meditation friendly diet

The diet plays an essential role in meditation practice. As the well-known proverb goes “the man is what he eats” - the food we consume influences our mind and body. This course focuses on yogic or sattvic diet, which makes meditation more effective.

Energy anatomy

Energy anatomy involves the theoretical framework of the energy body (pranic body), nadis (energy channels), chakras (energy centres) and the application of its principles in meditation practice, benefits of opening the nadis and chakras through meditation.
