First Sunday Guided Meditation
The first Sunday of each month
Sunday September 1 10:45 - 11:45 AM
Sunday October 6 10:45 - 11:45 AM
Just as the stillness of an asana belies the underlying efforts of the legs, arms, and core; meditation is stillness while the mind is in a state of focused concentration. Concentration is the root skill for all types of meditation. Lose concentration and the monkey takes over. Back and forth you go, from concentration to monkey noise and back again. Meditation is what happens when you let the monkey go and return to concentration.
Join Lynne Patterson on Sunday August 4 for Yoga Mart’s First Sunday Meditation. We will sit comfortably (think restorative!) We will take some time to get settled and comfortable, then begin with a guided meditation to help us center and focus. Then silence. Spend some time deep inside. Create a new practice or deepen your existing one. Need more information? Text your questions to Lynne at 972-890-1031. Beginers always welcomed. No previous training needed!
Lynne Patterson has been meditating for about 10 years. Two years ago, her favorite meditation teacher was relocating and Lynne did not want the class to change, so she offered to take it over. The class continued and Lynne became a little braver and took meditation teacher’s training at Ananda Meditation Center in Dallas. Now Lynne teaches meditation wherever she can find a place to sit. He long-term goal is to fill the Cotton Bowl with Mediators just before the State Fair. Can you imagine the energy we could bring to the Fair?

Mamas who had a Cesarean-section should wait a little longer—8 to 10 weeks; check with your doctor or midwife. Bebes can begin any time, and tend to enjoy the class until they are crawling. We can address age - depending on your child.Other info: You are welcome to feed baby (by breast or bottle) any time during class in the studio, and to change baby’s diaper any time, too.
