Meditation & Qi gong classes
Plus our Young Persons' Meditation Club and Meditation out in the community.
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. £7 per person. 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.
Qi Gong & Meditation classes
Gail teaches Qi gong & meditation classes every Monday from 7.45-9.00pm. 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

Important: In order for us to prepare you with the best space for Meditation and classes please avoid arriving more than ten minutes early. 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.
Young Person's Meditation & Qi gong club
These clubs are held every Thursday during term time from 4.30-5.15pm. We can take up to 10 children from the ages of 6 upwards. The cost is £6 per session and fees are paid by the term only.
As above - it is important that we prepare the best space for the classes so please avoid dropping children off any earlier than 4.30pm. Unfortunately we are only responsible for their welfare between 4.30-5.00pm.
Private Meditation sessions for up to 8 people
A warm, welcoming space can be provided for you and up to 8 friends. This hourly session will leave you relaxed, recharged and balanced. £50 per hourly session (regardless of numbers below 8)
