What Our Meditation Practitioners Say

“I have attended the first 3 courses of Meditation and thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different methods and finding the right method for me. Emanuela is always on the right side of spiritual for me and you can see that she is knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. I always come out of her class re-energised and ready for the day ahead." 

Luisa
"These meditation courses are a very good introduction to the subject. They are both practical and theoretical . You learn how to meditate with different types of mantras and aides such as candle gazing. You also learn the philosophy supporting meditation and how it is placed in the the yoga tradition. The course is very good value for money plus you are given handouts to keep. Meditation is a great stress buster and these courses are definitely not to be missed."    
Fiona
"I was completely new to meditation and had very little experience of yoga when I signed up  to Emanuela's meditation course.  On my first session I was immediately put as ease and made to feel very welcome by Emanuela and the rest of the group - and although some had experience and others didn't Emanuela talked things through step by step and I never felt out of pace with the rest of the group.  I have  found learning the basic principles of meditation a real asset in daily life - helping to deal with stress more effectively and reminding me how important it is to take time out to meditate  - especially when life is at it's most hectic.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone with or without experience in meditation - I certainly feel I've been given the tools to continue my meditation journey."
