Meditation at the World Yoga CenterMeditation page- top

Meditation lies at the core of yoga  and supports us to create a meaningful life. Seen as our natural birthright, meditation reduces suffering  and is a significant means to inner freedom and well-being. All our hatha yoga classes and programs include this transformative practice.

Monthy Satsang

Meditation gathering in Rudrani’s home: Thursday, October 15,  7-9:30pm

Theme: ‘Relax, We Are Being Taken Through’

If it is true that the Higher Self inside us needs the whole of our experience, if it is true that we need to bear the full spectrum of our human experience to realize who we are, then each moment has its place. There are no better or worse moments when all is said and done, but rather the practice of entering fully into all of them. If for example, we fail to witness ourselves in a given moment and succumb to an old pattern, we needed to experience this to go forward. And if we were able to remain awake through a day of highs and lows then we needed that experience as well. It is wise not to judge any of it but rather to relax into our own unfolding as we are being taken through. Every moment is as it should be. How can we learn not to struggle against the current but to be carried by it? Come and explore this together in the upcoming Satsang Oct 15.

The group chose this theme in our last Satsang. Come join us and enjoy our shared learning as we all continue to grow together. Satsang is an evening of high energy with Rudrani, the WYC Director. This monthly program includes group meditation, chanting, yoga philosophy, spiritual teachings and an exploration of the theme of the month. All are welcome. No prior experience needed.

Thank you for hosting another wonderful evening. So rich – and FULL. It feels as if I am coming home. I always leave overflowing…

Meditation page middleSatsang is wonderful – deep and strong. Meditating in that space, nestled on the corner of the 26th floor, overlooking our beloved City, is always so profound and deep. Certainly the long history of transformation energy in that very place makes it easier for all of us to glide with abandon into a meditation that feels like being held. I was struck by how that word comes up more than once during sharing. It is what keeps me coming back…. (WYC student)
