Introduction to Meditation for Stress Relief
Sundays March 5, 12 +19, 2017
This 3-part series is a perfect introduction to Meditation. We will explore the modern-day benefits of meditation and how you can integrate the practice into your life to relieve stress.
In each session, Lisa Ash Drackert will teach Meditation techniques which cultivate attention, deepen focus and embrace stillness. You’ll have the opportunity to practice meditation in an encouraging group setting and engage in conversation with classmates. You will also learn breathing techniques that trigger the relaxation response in your brain and body. The course includes a take-home manual for future reference and suggestions on how to successfully plan your at-home meditation practice.

Stress often manifests as pain in our physical body. Coupled with injuries and repetitive movements, our bodies feel fatigued and sore. In this workshop, you will learn therapeutic poses, breathing techniques and meditation mantras to relieve your pain and suffering. Poses will specialize in healing the most common painful areas: neck, spine, shoulders and hips. You’ll leave the class feeling restored and empowered to continue your self healing.
