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.
Qi Gong & Meditation classes
Gail teaches Qi gong & meditation classes every Monday from 7.30-8.45pm or Thursdays 1.30-2.45pm. This is a very gentle exercise class which includes breath work, controlled exercise and meditation over 75 mins @ £8.50 per person (term bookings) or £9.00 drop in.
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.
10 spaces available in any one class. Call 07957 663704. THIS CLASS IS PRE-BOOK ONLY
Gail leads monthly meditation sessions in the summer months on the first Monday of every month from 6.30-7.30pm. Chairs, mats, blankets and eye pillows are provided, just wear comfy clothes, no need to book just pay on the door @£7.00 per person.
