Meditation: Refine Your Joy

November 4, 11 and 18 2017

Yoga + Meditation + Time = Bliss!

The Buddha described himself as “one who lives in happiness.” Early Buddhist texts describe the monks as “smiling and cheerful, sincerely joyful, and plainly delighting, living in ease and unruffled.”

You are meant to live a joyful life! Connect to your joy.

Reduce stress, stabilize emotions, feel your best.
Live your most meaningful life.
Sleep better, improve health and well being.

Meditators of all levels will benefit from this combination of yoga and meditation practice, with support from community and an experienced teacher.

Meditation can be easy, simple, refreshing and grounding. And meditation is a natural part of the yoga practice.

This season’s Meditation Series will focus on the following techniques. Recordings of the sessions will be shared with participants.

Body-scan meditation—Quiets mind, relieves stress, aids sleep
Chakra meditation—Uplifting, calming, centering
Mindfulness meditation—Simple, timeless wisdom


Sessions will include:

Unlimited classes at mang’oh for the program’s duration
Three Saturday 2-hour workshops, practicing with Chintamani Kansas (aka “C”), Senior Instructor at mang’Oh
45 minutes of full-body, deep stretching and yoga, involving seated and reclining poses—safe and effective for all bodies
Clear Meditation Instruction
Meaningful Meditation Time to explore the practice
Community Q & A
Resources to support ongoing practice
Recordings of the guided meditations to play at home
Chairs or floor cushions, to support comfort of all participants


Please note: Participants must be willing to get down and up from the floor at least one time to participate in the yoga stretching. Assistance will be provided, upon request. Please dress in layers, as we will be sitting and moving.
