Meditatie

“Simply let experience take place very freely, so that your open heart is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion.”

~Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Ruimte maken voor bewustzijn

Veel wetenschappelijke studies hebben aangetoond wat de voordelen zijn van meditatie, op fysiek, emotioneel en mentaal niveau. Om er een paar te noemen: bij mensen die regelmatig mediteren zijn fysieke veranderingen in de hersenen aangetoond, functioneert het zenuwstelsel beter, ontstaat meer creativiteit en mentale processen en relaties verbeteren. Het algehele welbevinden neemt toe.

Meditatie is een belangrijk onderdeel van yoga. Er zijn veel yoga meditatie technieken die je kan leren, en bij The House of Yoga vind je er verschillende. De fysieke yoga practice (of asana) was oorspronkelijk bedoeld als reiniging en voorbereiding op meditatie.

 

Meditatie verwijst naar een breed scala aan practices waarbij de mind getraind wordt en er meer bewustzijn en ontspanning ontstaat. Ontspanningstechnieken en methodes om geestkracht, compassie, liefde, geduld, edelmoedigheid en vergevingsgezindheid te ontwikkelen vallen daar ook onder.


Mindfulness Meditation

This meditation uses the breath or sound as a support. 

The support provides a gentle focus point to anchor or steady the mind throughout the practice. As the mind gets distracted during meditation, we simply come back, again and again, to being aware of the breath (or sound). This helps us create new patterns, train the mind to become less distracted, and to regain a sense of distance from our thoughts and emotions—finding greater peace and stillness within.  

 

Awareness Meditation

This meditation guides students to rest in a place of being.

It is a gentle guided meditation that helps us find more spaciousness and relaxation in the mind. By allowing ourselves to stop 'doing' this meditation focuses on the awareness of being, and allows us to become more connected to the true nature of the mind—which is pure, still, creative, and open.


Loving Kindness Meditation

This meditation focuses on gently cultivating loving-kindness towards oneself and others. 

Loving kindness meditation helps students to discover more about their minds and their hearts. The intention of this practice is to send well-being and happiness to oneself and the world around us. It is a wonderful way to begin to plant the seeds of love within, that will also impact our way of being in our lives.  

 

Relaxation Meditation

This meditation is a practice of conscious relaxation designed to release held tension in our body and mind. The practice of yoga nidra guides students into a state of deep relaxation, by progressively relaxing and releasing tension from each part of the body. This helps us to feel more open inside and is a great way to reverse the impact of stress.

 

Mantra Meditation

This meditation uses a 'mantra' to help steady the mind. A mantra is a sacred syllable or sound that has a powerful vibration.

It is a gentle guided meditation using a sacred sound to help us contact the deeper layers of our being. One of the purposes of using a mantra is to feel the subtle vibration, which helps to deepen our practice. The repetition of the mantra throughout the class helps us to disconnect from the thoughts that arise, and find a deep sense of peace within.
