Hello dear wellness through yoga students! I look forward to our class this weekend!

 ~Pheleshia

 To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still. 

Jiddu Krishnamurti 

This week’s theme is Meditation Stillness

  • What does meditation mean to you? 
  • What image does it give you? 
  • When have you taken the time to meditate? 
  • What does the research say about meditation? 
  • What do the yogis say about meditation? 
  • What effects have you experienced after meditating? 
  • Remember that 1 minute a day of conscious breathing can help reset your relaxation response. How can you incorporate a meditation routine into your life? 
  • Think about a way to create the perfect environment for a long meditation. What would it look like, feel like, smell like, sound like? Describe it in full detail and see if there is a way to make it happen, one element at a time.

This week’s theme is Savasana 

  • How do you feel in the Savasana pose? 
  • Do your thoughts wander? How do you bring yourself back to the moment? 
  • How do you practice ahimsa? 
  • How do you let go? What helps you do so? 
  • When is the last time you truly let go? Describe the moment as well as how it felt. 
  • Five minutes of savasana at the end of a yoga practice is nice, however how can you practice this posture during longer periods of time? As with any posture, practice is key for it to be effective and relaxing. Plan a Savasana routine for the week and document how it makes you feel and how it translates into your everyday.
