Modern life can be stressful and therefore it's helpful to know a few good techniques to unwind. Over recent decades many Australians have developed an interest in the ancient meditation practices of the East which are not only beneficial physically, but are also nurturing mentally and emotionally.
Unfortunately yoga and meditation classes at the majority of yoga studios are rather pricey, meaning that many people who are interested can't attend and learn these time-honoured techniques. One group, however, that is dedicated to bringing yoga and meditation within the reach of all, totally free of charge, is the Sahaja Yoga group.
Sahaja Yoga meditation classes are held all around Australia and abroad, both in the city and in country areas. For a list of classes in your local area take a look at the Sahaja Yoga website. Just find a suitable time and place, and turn up with a yoga mat. To learn more, and confirm class times, call 1300 724 252 (Australia-wide).
In addition to their regular meditation classes, Sahaja Yoga also holds free workshops from time to time on a variety of subjects including: easy techniques to reduce stress, how to meditate at home, scientific research into meditation and spirituality in art.
In conclusion, meditation is an ancient relaxation technique that's just as relevant now as it was in ancient times. To learn more about these free meditation courses and workshops, go to the Sahaja Yoga Meditation website.
