Meditation classes

Meditation classes and mindfulness practices have skyrocketed in popularity over the past two decades. It’s reported that up to one in six Australian adults practise meditation and one in ten practise yoga. Meditation is highly effective in reducing stress, cultivating mindfulness, managing anxiety and aiding emotional regulation. One of the simplest ways to start incorporating meditation and mindfulness into your life is through meditation classes facilitated by a qualified instructor. The Wellness Workshop’s meditation classes are run by our resident teacher Belinda, and are suitable for all ages, abilities and levels. Belinda uses a variety of meditation techniques and instruments to aid in the relaxation process, as well as mantras (voice) and visualisation techniques. You can book a group meditation class, one-on-one class or even a private meditation class where we can come directly to your school, office or workplace to facilitate the session.

what is meditation & why should i do it?

Originating in Asia through Ayurvedic practice in India and traditional therapies in China, meditation has been recognised as one of the fastest growing wellness trends of the past decade. Loosely defined, meditation is about focusing awareness and relaxing the mind to promote an improved sense of presence, calmness and attentiveness. Awareness can be achieved through techniques such as focusing on the breath or listening to a particular sound or instrument repeatedly. Naturally, the mind will want to wonder and attend to other fleeting thoughts, but with time and practice the mind catches on and gets better at not responding to other stimuli. Meditation has many forms including movement meditation, transcendental meditation and mantra meditation. Mindful meditation is perhaps the most popular, promising benefits such as reduced stress, enhanced cognitive functioning and increased gratitude. Below we give you a snapshot of the benefits attained from regular meditation practise.

what can i expect in meditation classES?

The Wellness Workshop's meditation classes suit all ages, levels and personality types. Our meditation classes are judgement-free, welcoming spaces where you are made to feel calm, included and appreciated. Depending on whether you are attending a meditation class at our wellness centre, or if you're participating in a private meditation class at your school or workplace, you can expect to be seated comfortably on a chair or a mat on the floor. From here, our meditation teacher will soothingly guide you through the session with voice prompts and sometimes music or instruments (chimes, drums...etc) Many of our first-time participants have indicated their surprise at how quickly they felt the class went in comparison when they tried to meditate on their own and were unsuccessful. You may also learn breathing techniques and complete body scan activities, where our meditation teacher makes you aware of the different sensations and feelings around your body by focusing your attention on it.
