Yoga and Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation

When we read about the benefits of meditation it's hard to imagine why we would not be doing this practice on a daily basis, and for long enough to notice how we really are able to tune in to ourselves.  
  
The founder of the Quest for Life Foundation, Petrea King firmly believes that "Meditation helps us be more skilful at living in the present."
 
Brain imagery studies show that meditation enables the brain to literally re-wire itself in positive ways. A regular practice helps us to loosen our attachment to our behavioural patterns that may no longer be serving us. Many physical benefits have also been noted leading to a better quality of sleep, a more harmonious nature and a significant reduction in our levels of stress and tension. We may be able to concentrate better, improve our breathing and lessen the feelings of pain. 
 
So perhaps we should commit to learning some of the techniques that will help us to access the healing qualities of quietening our minds and letting go of our unwanted "mind chatter" as we develop both a regular physical practise and the art of sitting quietly.
 
Ruth has recently trained at the Yarra Valley Living Centre to study the specific techiniques of Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation. We will find our own gateways to the mind and enjoy the "quiet practice" of meditation through both movement and stillness.  
 
A gentle yoga practice will be included in our Monday night classes.
