On Saturday I attended another Meditation Session at my Pilates Studio (also a Yoga Studio). The sessions are aimed at the yogi's but my trainer says that I am a yogi at heart! :-)
So, with it being Valentine's Day (almost), it was all about the heart. The heart chakra (Anahata), energy point of love, empathy and compassion towards oneself and others.
The session was made up of guided meditations interspersed with yoga poses that help to open the chest area drawing energy into the heart. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, replenishing, re energising.
Sue had decorated the studio beautifully with hearts and candles, little white trees dotted about with tiny red hearts decorating their branches, music playing softly. I have come to think of this space as my sanctuary. A place I can just completely shut off from the pressures of work. The blue on the back wall & ceiling is a lovely deep blue, the rest white, such a soothing atmosphere.
Afterwards we went through to the studio conservatory, lit with gorgeous fairy lights and lamps casting wonderful colours & patterns onto the walls, and enjoyed fresh fruit, spritzers and 'love tea' from Pukka all whilst spending time with others looking for a little peace in their lives.
Do you do yoga or meditate? I keep thinking I should try yoga again, I might be more open to it....
Hope your week is going well!
