Scientific studies have shown that meditation boosts self-awareness, memory and empathy. This course contains practical guidelines on physical, mental and philosophical aspects of meditation. Also short readings from classical yoga works.

Workshop Topics

  • Being aware of physical sensations: a balanced meditation posture brings the focus to the here and now
  • Breath meditation: one-pointedness of mind through meditative pranayama techniques
  • Emptying the mind: Mental relaxation and mindfulness exercises
  • Concentration on positive values: This creates new, uplifting grooves in the mind that gradually replace negative feelings and moods
  • Visualisation: Concentration exercises on light, colours and shapes. Mental images become clearer and more exact
  • Sound meditation: Mantra chanting and mental mantra repetition have a harmonising effect on the mind
  • [email protected]: The how and why for continuing your meditation practice at home

With individual tips regarding place, time, posture, meditation technique, as well as a recommended reading list. Mantra initiation is optional.

The rest of the programme follows the yoga vacation daily schedule.
