Mindfulness and Meditation 6 week course with Natalie Haider, Yoga Teacher & Psychologist
Commencing: Wednesday 21 April 2021
Time: 19:30-20:15
Ever wanted to meditate or learn about mindfulness but not sure where to start? Feel like your mind is too busy or you can’t stay still enough to relax? Do you experience feelings of stress, anxiety, or sleeplessness? Then join Psychologist and accessible Yoga Teacher, Natalie Haider, for her 6-week mindfulness and meditation course to uncover the benefits of a daily meditation or mindfulness practice, based on the ancient wisdom of yoga. Each session is experiential and designed to build on the previous week’s class, so you will gain the most benefit by committing to all 6 sessions.
Each week, learn a new mindfulness and meditation technique to take into your everyday life to support your mental wellbeing.
Week 1: present-moment sensing: engaging the senses to pay attention to the present moment
Week 2: physical sensing: connecting to physical sensations in the body through movement and in stillness
Week 3: mental sensing: paying kind attention to thoughts and feelings
Week 4: breath sensing: meditation on the breath
Week 5: relaxation practice: yoga nidra practice
Week 6: compassionate practice: loving kindness meditation
All sessions are held virtually via Zoom, are 45 minutes in duration, and accessible for beginners. Participants will receive reading materials and a recording of each week’s session to continue exploring each theme for the week.
What to expect:
• Each session will commence with asana – gentle and accessible physical postures to prepare the body to sit/be in stillness.
• I then provide an overview of the particular mindfulness/meditation skill or tool.
• Next we dive into the experiential component of the week’s focus with a variety of mindfulness and meditation practices.
• Finally, I assign homework activity for those wanting to deepen their learning and experience.
• There will be 15 minutes at the end of the 45-minute session to stay and ask questions, which will not be recorded.
