Learn to Meditate courses
If you've ever wanted to learn more about the practice of meditation and feel empowered to create a sustainable practice that will carry you through the rest of your life, then this course is the perfect opportunity!
Each course covers the three main forms of meditation - concentration, awareness and consciousness - and includes practices such as mantra, mudras and visualisation. Courses are guided by yogic principles and teachings, and we will go into detail about each of the practices that we use and cover lifestyle practices that will help to enrich and deepen your meditation practice informed by the Yamas and Niyamas.
Each session will include taught information, a meditation practice and some journalling. There won't be any 'homework' as such but I will offer a practice for the following week for you to try, which I hope will help you to begin to build your own practice. For online courses, you will receive teaching materials such as help-sheet print-outs via email a few hours before each session.
My aim is that you will leave the course with a solid knowledge of what meditation is and with the confidence to create sustainable practice that works, and can be adapted, for you and your life <3
Online 'Learn to Meditate' Courses
Each course will be strictly limited to just 9 people to keep the space safe and nurturing. These will be run exactly like in-person courses, where you turn up at a set time each week to meet in circle. Sessions will be delivered on Zoom and won't be recorded (again, to keep the space safe).
Four-week Courses: £36pp; Sundays 7.30-8.30pm (5th, 12th, 19th, 26th April) OR Mondays 8-9am (6th, 13th, 20th, 27th April)
Six-week Courses: £54pp; Tuesdays 8-9am OR 7.30-8.30pm (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th April, 5th, 12th May)
***Please note that I am also offering a pay-what-you-can space on each course for those classed as 'concessions' or if you are in financial need. Please drop me a line if you would like to nominate yourself or a loved one for this space.***

Movement for Meditation workshops
A series of workshops designed with your meditation practice in mind. Essentially this is an extended practice covering postures useful in preparing the body for sitting still for prolonged periods of time. We’ll begin with pranayama (breathing) exercises for meditation and then move into a postural practice covering the back and shoulders, hips, how to relieve and prevent pins and needles, and finish with time for an extended guided meditation of 30 mins.
@ Float Training Academy, Hove
Sunday 12th July, 3-5pm
Sunday 13th September 3-5pm
Half day mediation retreats
Half day retreats dedicated to spending time with your own meditation practice in a supportive and nurturing space.
We will cover the three main forms of meditation: concentration, contemplative and mindfulness as well as some physical exercises to encourage effective postures in meditation and to be able to sit for prolonged periods. You will also be guided in breathing exercises (pranayama) to prepare the body for meditation. You will leave feeling centred and inspired to either create your own daily practice or with some new practices to try out in your existing one.
