Meditation › Morning Energiser
These practices are great for the morning. They are especially designed to give you some get up and go, no matter how much time you have; if you're giving yourself a short weekday gift of starting the day well or a beautiful, longer energising weekend practice to give yourself the time and space you need to feel just great.
We think you'll find that the day goes with so much more panache and ease after you start the day by getting moving.
Meditation: Befriending your Whole Self
In this short meditation class, be guided through an embodied enquiry of the layers of your body (physical, mental, emotional, energetic, spiritual) as a way of tuning into, welcoming and befriending your body. When we take time to listen and connect to our body we make room to welcome the full spectrum of our human experience – from the comfortable to the not so comfortable. Befriending the body in this way widens the circle of compassion and acceptance of this moment allowing you to tap into the inherent wisdom that resides within. This is a really useful short practice to connect to yourself at the start of your day, before any yoga class and when you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, stress or overwhelm.
We Rise Meditation
A beautiful meditation class which includes mantra. This meditation is for when we need to connect back to ourselves in a busy and often overwhelming world. It is inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem ‘Still I Rise’ and is a reminder of what can arise within us for the good. Whenever you are feeling a sense of disconnect, when you feel frazzled and overwhelmed, we really recommend this meditation practice. We use the mantra ‘We Rise and I am connected’ and hand gestures to connect back to our bodies and ourselves.
Start The Day

Awaken to Yoga
This is a lovely, meditative, sweet and slow flow to warm up the body for the day. It is great for beginners as well as advanced yogis who want to take care of their bodies from the inside out. This practice would be wonderful to be used as a pre-curser to your morning meditation as Jean gently guides attention inward through the focus on the breath. This could also be used at the end of the day before your evening meditation. Jean guides you gently into the breath, gives great alignment guidance to some gentle backbends and lovely, long modified downward dogs. No better way to start, or indeed end the day.
