If meditation was a pill, we would all take it every day.
Are you interested meditation but not sure where to start? Have you tried meditation and had difficulty sticking with it? A private one-on-one session offers techniques to personalize your inner awareness tools. Depending on your natural tendencies, allotted time, religious or spiritual beliefs, and if you are wanting to meditation for a specific health reason (anxiety, depression, chronic pain, addiction etc.), some styles of meditation are more beneficial than others. Meditation is not a practice but a state of being that is obtained through other practices. It is a transformational experience where we use techniques to draw the senses inward including pranayama (breath work), imagery, movement, mudra (hand gestures or seals), and mantra (repetition of sound or word). Basic but effective meditation tools help develop a consistent practice that expands over time.
There are many styles, techniques and variations of meditation. Megan will help you find the meditation tools that support your individuality and desired outcome. Personalized documentation and follow up support are provided. Typically, 1-3 private sessions will give you the tools you need to develop a regular, joyful meditation practice on your own!

Though yoga is often thought of as postures (asana), physical poses are one of eight limbs or facets of yoga in the ancient texts. The practice of asana is not required for meditation, but meant to be a doorway into the body. Liberation from the fluctuations of the mind is the ultimate goal in yoga; so much so that four of the eight limbs of yoga speak directly to the importance of meditation: Pratyahara (withdrawing of the senses), Dharana (contemplation), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (absorption). There is no such thing as a bad meditation. All of these levels are powerful states of consciousness that allow our inner Self to stay in balance with the outside world.
