All offerings are appropriate for everyone and can be private, semi-private (2-3 People) or small group (4-10) classes.
Step by step, you are guided through a slow, peaceful, meditative experience with a specific purpose. Some guided meditations are aimed at simply quieting the mind and focusing on the breath, others are aimed at awakening and bringing a sense of balance to our chakras (energy centers), while others are aimed at releasing and reducing fear, anxiety and judgement. Additionally, many guided meditations use imagery to assist the meditator in the letting go of thoughts.
