The Benefits of Meditation Classes

Workshops & ClassesPosted by Sally-Anne Thu, May 25, 2017 12:07PM

By Jen Mills, Yoga Tutor & Meditation Class Leader

In class I often talk about the physical flexibility that babies have but thinking from a mental perspective babies don't have the same stresses and worries that we do. Their needs are simple. But we do, however, quickly learn behaviour whether it’s the louder we scream the quicker we will get fed or if we touch that it will hurt. Our brains are powerful, intelligent machines but can be our own worst enemy.


I have started running meditation classes and one of the benefits of meditation is that we concentrate on the here and now and slow the racing mind thinking about what could happen because we remember what has happened in the past and this makes us worry about what could happen in the future.

Babies have little experience of the past, they just concentrate on the here and now. Mindfulness and meditation helps us to do this. We use tools like visualisation and watching the breath to help us to concentrate. As a bonus this slows our heart and reduces the physical as well as the mental effects and helps our overall well being.
