Connecting with the Divine

Meditation is the practice of focusing your attention to help you feel calm and give you a clear awareness about your life. Eastern philosophies have recognized the health benefits of meditation for thousands of years. Meditation is now widely practiced in the West, with the belief that it has positive effects on health.

Meditation usually involves slow, regular breathing and sitting quietly for at least 15 to 20 minutes.  After a yoga session, meditation seems to be a natural practice.  Focusing on the breath or mantras can help a yoga student achieve absolute serenity and peace.
