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.

Monthly Satsang

Meditation gathering in Rudrani's home: Thursday, March 22,  7-9:30pm

Theme: 'Trust: Don’t Look Down'

It occurs along the path that one begins to feel more and more openings inside and more and more time of flying in a zone of presence and witnessing awareness. It feels so wonderful that one wonders how long this can last. There is an ancient tale of two disciples flying on a magic carpet kept aloft in the vast blue sky by mantra repetition. Their only instruction is not to look down. After some time, one of them begins to wonder what would happen if they did look down and down they both plummet! This is a fierce story and yet self doubt is often our sole demise. It can be the way we resist the fruits of our practices. Come explore this together and see what trust in ourselves might bring…

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)
