This workshop is a mindful approach to well-being and managing stress through gentle movements, breathing techniques, and an introduction to Sudarshan KriyaTM (SKY) meditation. To begin, participants will be led through a sequence of gentle movements to prepare the body to sit in meditation and promote relaxation. No change of clothes or yoga mat are necessary. After that, participants will be guided through evidence-based breathing techniques for deeper relaxation. After these initial relaxation techniques, the course leader will guide participants through a 20-minute meditation, with time for reflection afterwards.

WHAT IS SKY MEDITATION?

The SKY Meditation program provides an easy to use powerful breath-based meditation technique that reduces stress and increases mind-body wellness. SKY works in a unique way. It utilizes the innate ability of the breath to trigger an automatic quieting of the mind, leading to a deep experience of meditation—whether you’ve never practiced meditation or have done it for years. It is easy to practice, and is effective even when the mind is restless or caught up in emotions.

Program is conducted over three consecutive sessions. It is required that participants attend all sessions of the course.
