The LMYC is happy to offer a three week mini class on meditation led by Susan Trier. In addition to leading our Thursday Back to Basics yoga, Susan is an experienced teacher of meditation and well-being practices. She approaches meditation from a background of western mindfulness, eastern zazen, as well as contemplative practices. Students are welcome to attend any or all classes. Standard $10 drop in/punch card/member rates apply.
Come to Vinyasa class early and join us in exploring mindfulness and practicing meditation. While we’re together, during the first half we’ll discuss a topic and then, in the remaining time, we’ll practice both guided and self-directed meditation.

March 10 – Emotions
What’s emotion got to do with it?
“Name it to Tame it” – Dr. Dan Siegel, Clinical professor of Psychiatry, UCLA Executive Director of Mindsight Institute
March 17 – Gratitude: A holiday or a perspective?
“Gratitude is so close to the bone of life, pure and true, that it instantly stops the rational mind, and all its planning and plotting.” –Regina Sara Ryan
