Gail is a qualified Meditation Teacher and has been using Meditation for over 18 years. She held regular circles in Ripon and Harrogate for two years before opening up her own centre. Meditation is a great way to relax - there is a famous quote by Osho which reads:
"Remember, Meditation is not something that is done by the mind, it is the absence of the mind. When the mind stops Meditation happens. It is not something out of the mind, it is something beyond the mind."
Meditation happens as the brain travels into a Theta brain wave state, you are completely awake and allowing yourself to be the observer of the mind to allow you to connect to your intuition and recharge. Meditation is you transcending thought.
Adult classes are held twice monthly on Monday evenings from 6.30-7.30pm. £6 per person (to rise to £7 Jan 2019). We provide chairs, Yoga mats, blankets, eye pillows and water. We have a free car park and it is not necessary to book as currently it is pay on the door policy, please avoid arriving before 6.20pm.
New classes for January 2019
From 14th January 2019 Gail is taking Qi gong & meditation classes on alternate Mondays. This is a very gentle exercise class which includes breath work, controlled exercise and meditation over 75 minutes 7pm-8.15pm £8.50 per person.
In the Five Elements system, Qi is defined as energy that is conducted through the body in the meridian pathways, which supplies the organs, the mind, body and the spirit. When the chi is balanced, a person remains well, when you imbalance you can become ill. It is an energy movement class mirroring the ancient Chinese movements of nature. It is slower than Tai Chi.

Important: In order for us to prepare you with the best space for Meditation please avoid arriving before 6.20pm. The space and energy has to be respected and cleared prior for each class to enjoy. We do not have a reception or waiting area so should you find yourself early, there is a lovely bench outside on which to sit and enjoy the canal air.

These clubs are held every Thursday during term time from 4.15-5.00pm. We can take up to 12 children from the ages of 6 upwards. The cost is £5 per session and fees are paid by the term only.
