“This class is gentle. I loved the options offered, which made me realize after all these years of yoga, that some positions are better for me than others, and that softening into and around a position is better than striving to get to it. Dielle is wonderful – calm, gentle, thoughtful, attentive to all of us in the class, encouraging each of us personally.” — Ompractice student 💙
In this class we’ll create some inner space with slow gentle movements and stretches, supportive breathwork, and short meditations to calm and center the mind.
This is a class suitable for all levels, even those with zero experience, and is easily adaptable for those with different needs.
All you need is a rug or mat. You might also want to have a blanket and chair handy for comfort or modification.
“Beth has a very calm and soothing voice. This experience was relaxing and yet energizing at the same time. A very nice mid-day break. The perfect reset to become more present in the moment — in stillness, silence, and spaciousness.” — Ompractice student 💙
Share the blessing of silence in community in this unguided silent meditation meant to help you cultivate a regular sitting practice.
It is open to all levels of experience; you are free to follow your own style or tradition or simply sit in ‘non doing’ stilling the body, quieting the mind, and expanding the heart.
Each session will begin and end with the sound of a bell and be dedicated to the most supreme and sublime enlightenment of all sentient beings.
NOTE: Please arrive on time. Due to the nature of this silent practice, students will not be admitted late to this class.
Recommended props: meditation cushion, pillow, bolster or chair
