Guided Meditation | FREE Community Class

Sundays at 7:00pm | All Levels Welcome

*Tune into Chris's wonderful virtual meditations at camasmeditation.com

This class comprises a small, informal group that meets each Sunday evening to share in meditation together. The goals are to have an opportunity to learn meditation practices from several traditions, to experience the energy of meditating in a group and to build encouragement for our own individual practice.

There are many possible reasons for wanting to meditate. It is true that meditation can help us relax, help us cope with stress, encourage healthy balance and build calm and equanimity. Above all, meditation helps us understand the process of our mind, and through that understanding, we can begin to experience the true nature of the world and our place in it.

Whatever reason you have for wanting to meditate, we hope that you will join us on the path. Absolute beginners to seasoned meditation practitioners welcome! This class is offered free to the community as a gift from Breathe Yoga & Massage and meditation instructor, Chris Robson.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga provides a wonderful opportunity to practice relaxation by rejuvenating the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of your being. You will be guided to use supportive props, such as blankets, blocks and bolsters, to assist you in finding ease and bliss through out each posture.
 
This class is a softer practice designed to bring you back to your natural state of wellness through minimal movement and space for stillness in your mind and body.

With a particular focus at stretching the connective tissues and opening the joints, expect to leave this class feeling like you just enjoyed a therapeutic massage...ahhhh!
