On Sunday August 27th I presented a public class for the Shala Yoga Studio in Spring Valley, east county San Diego. Meditation 101 is an introduction to some of the concepts and terms applicable to the practice of meditation. Due to a general misunderstanding of the practices, some persons are reluctant to try it. As with yoga exercise classes, there are various styles of meditation, and like yoga, one style may not fit all. The many benefits of meditation, both physiological and emotional, are well documented by research. With better understanding of the different techniques, everyone should have access to those benefits. Hence Meditation 101 !
Many thanks to Lisa Marchesini, Shala Yoga owner and director, for hosting the class. And to the beautiful, inquisitive group of participants! Here are a few photos. You can click on the shots for captions and a better view.
