Session 2: Meditation 102-The Chakras
Saturday January 27th
Explore the chakra system and deepen your awareness of your primary energy centers. During this workshop, you will learn two new chakra mediations based on the incredible work of Carolyn Myss. You will leave with the skills and resources to practice these meditations on your own. Please bring a notebook or journal to class.
Session 3: Mediation 103-Yoga Nidra
Saturday February 3rd
Have you always been curious about Yoga Nidra aka yogic or psychic sleep? This meditation workshop will take you deep into the world of Yoga Nidra by guiding you through a specific sequence of steps to induce a very deep state of relaxation. This is a stand alone practice that can be done in about 25 minutes to an hour, depending on time. It is often stated that 1 hour of Nidra is worth 3 hours of actual sleep. Please bring a notebook or journal to class.
Session 4: Meditation 104-the Spiritual Pivot
Saturday February 10th
This final workshop will focus on guided meditation as a vehicle for increasing compassion. The Spiritual Pivot refers to the Heart Chakra upon which the energies of Human and Heaven converge. This workshop explores a step-by-step practice that increases our capacity for understanding, tolerance, and empathy. You will leave with a renewed relationship with your self- one of love and a deep sense of connection with your soul.
Ready to discover the depths of your practice? We highly recommend signing up in advance! Sign up for the meditation fundamentals workshop January 20th and we will open the following three workshops to students in attendance.

Since 2006, Terrence has managed two different yoga studios in New York, completed 10 different teacher trainings in areas varying from Forrest Yoga to MeditationTraining, and has led international retreats. He has taught yoga and meditation for the last 14 years and hopes to continue teaching until he physically cannot. He was previously the Area Managing Teacher of Pure Yoga before he decided to pursue a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
