Sunday Guided Meditation
Every Sunday beginning January 2020 at a new time
Sundays in January 3:15-4:15 PM
Create or Deepen Your Meditation Practice in 2020
Weekly meditation sessions come to Yoga Mart in January
Every Sunday | 3:15 to 4:15 PM | $10
A meditation practice provides a myriad of benefits as a quick Google search reveals – stress relief, relaxation, better digestion, better sleep, more mindful eating, more energy, better focus and concentration. The benefits of mindfulness are cumulative, the more you meditate, the more benefits you experience.
Beginning in January 2020, Yoga Mart brings weekly meditation classes to their program. Lead by Lynne Patterson, various meditation techniques and styles will be explored, with a focus on Mindfulness and Open Awareness. The classes begin with slow gentle movements to signal relaxation to the body. Then participants settle into a comfortable, supported posture, on the floor or in a chair, reclining or erect. Breathwork follows, to help our senses withdraw and our bodies unwind. A guided meditation leads you inward to be and breath, to relax and release, to dig deep and examine things at the very root. Then we sit in stillness and silence for deep contemplation and inner reflection. Returning the external, we bring a profound sense of peace and tranquility.
Sessions are weekly on Sunday from 3:15 to 4:15. The price is $10 per session, payable to Lynne at the session. Cash and credit cards accepted.
Meditation Theme for January – Letting Go to Move Forward.
A new year is seen as a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. We make New Year’s Resolutions based on future hopes and wishes only to see our plans fall to the side before February arrives. What is holding us back from having the life we desire? Let’s take some time in January and examine the things that are holding us back – regrets, unforgiveness, disappointments, and other sorrows. How do we reframe lost opportunities, missteps, and poor choices so they stop weighing us down and help us move forward? Let’s work on this together.
Jan 5 What do I need to forgive? Is holding a grudge holding you back?
Jan 12 I should have/could have/would have made a better decision if... Are you still judging and questioning past decisions?
Jan 19 I missed my chance and will never have that opportunity again. Are you still standing outside of a closed door?
Jan 26 I never imagined anything would turn out this way. After grief, what comes next? Reframing disappointments and sorrows so they don’t define you.

The class offers a chance for moms to connect with other new moms, too. You’ll find a warm, supportive community — essential during the postpartum period!Who it’s for: Mamas who are feeling fine at 6 weeks postpartum. 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.
