The traditional yoga techniques for practicing meditation. A workshop to learn simple techniques to increase concentration, will power, creativity and to find a stable link with our most natural inner peace.


    It is very common among modern yogis to dedicate most of their energies to practice Hatha Yoga asanas (physical exercises to cleanse the body stimulating the glands, the nervous system and the nadiis), and to keep somehow aside in a secondary status the practices of meditation like Dharana and Dhyana.

This is actually very understandable because often meditation is portrayed like something almost impossible to practice for normal people. Something that only a few special people can handle.

With this workshop we will clarify some of the wrong ideas about meditation, describing and practicing together the original techniques of meditation explained in the ancient Patanjali's text on yoga called "Yoga Sutras".

We will discover that meditation is actually one of the most natural things in life, something that anyone can happily practice without frustrations even in a society with a very fast rhythm like the one where we live.

Everyone is welcome! :-)
