Nadya has been on a journey towards mindfulness since her young adulthood and pre-tech days. She started a meditation practice in 2004, but continued to fall off and get back on the wagon until 2010 when she found yoga and, what would become, her passion. A deeper understanding of the various aspects of meditation set her off on a sideline towards finding methods that would make the journey both more effective and relevant to the modern-day meditator.
In our busy and noisy world – auditory and sensory – meditation fundamentally essential to keeping a balanced life and inner state of calm, but it has also become so much harder to simply dive into.
Over the last couple of years, we have effectively proven the various benefits of meditation on the health and well-being of the modern person, and yet despite this, most people still feel very intimidated by this practice. Although meditation will benefit almost every area of your life, most people have no idea how to start, OR have tried it, but don’t feel like they’re doing it right. On the flip side of this are the people who simply don’t identify with the traditional image of the loin-clothed man sitting in lotus pose in a cave chanting his life away. It is these and many other misconceptions that MEDITATION 101 seeks to dissolve, helping people to become more comfortable with this practice which will serve not only them, but everyone they come in contact with.
From years of experience, workshops, studies, as well as basic trial and error, Nadya has developed tips and tools to make the journey towards a regular meditation practice just a little smoother. Join her for an afternoon to gain an understanding of what meditation is, learn about and experience different forms of meditation, and get some tips to incorporate this practice more efficiently into your life.
