    The traditional yoga practice was originally designed to support extended periods of meditation, and yet most of us, as yoga teachers, received very little formal training in meditation. Your 200-hour training prepared you to guide your students through an in-depth yoga practice. Now, it is time to give them the next step. Meditation.

    The research surrounding meditation shows it is powerfully potent, physically and chemically changing your brain, boosting immune function and increases positive emotions.
    Sacred Chill {West}’s Meditation Immersion is designed for Yoga Teachers looking to incorporate meditation into their classes as well as for those wanting to deepen a personal meditation practice. In this 15-hour course, you will:
    • Experience extended meditations
    • Learn how to modify meditative postures for comfort
    • Discover the differences between the most common meditation styles
    • Create your own guided meditations
    • Find your meditative voice through practice teaches with the guidance of a mentor

    Expect to walk away comfortable with a silent, at-home meditation practice as well as ready to incorporate mini-meditations into your yoga classes. This is part of our CEU program, designed to give experienced teachers additional tools to create a speciality as a professional teacher.

    A 3-week Meditation series on Wholehearted Living

    February’s meditation series is an exploration of Brene Brown’s teachings in The Gifts of Imperfection. This series invites us to wake up each morning and think as Brown invites us to –

    “No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough… Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.”

    Together, we will explore three tenets of wholehearted living –

    Week 1: Courage – what does it mean to be courageous in my daily life? How do I sit with vulnerability?

    Week 2: Compassion – how can I more fully recognize our shared humanity? What does it mean to truly listen?

    Week 3: Connection – in what ways do I prevent real connection in my life? Can I more fully feel seen, heard and valued?

    This course will combine Brown’s teachings and traditional meditation techniques to help us look at the ways we inadvertently disconnect ourselves from the joys of living the full human experience, as well as offer tools for stepping into our lives more fully.

    Meryl Arnett, E-RYT 500 and Co-Owner of Sacred Chill {West}, has worked with and taught Brene Brown’s Shame-Resilience curriculum within mental health and substance abuse programs, and she believes its life-changing teachings meld perfectly with a Mindfulness meditation practice.
