Have you been curious about meditation? Do you want to start a meditation practice but want to know more about it? Are you ready to develop clearer mind, calmer inner state, release old pain and access blissful states of being?

Meditation can be a powerful transformative practice that can add to our yoga practice. Meditation can help us train the inner skills necessary to truly move towards creating a happier and healthier life. Managing our mind, emotions and inner life is instrumental to our well being.
