Developing a Personal Practice

Introducing Meditation & Mantra into your Yoga Classes

“The newcomer to meditation receives a shock when he first sits down in a quiet place and turns his attention inwards.

Our attention is normally turned outwards – but look within and you find that the mind is filled with the chatter of thought… as rowdy as a cage full of mad monkeys, say some old Yoga texts.

Yoga meditation sets out to reduce the clamour and the number of thoughts, to open up spaces between thoughts, to smooth out waves in the mindstuff (citta).”
