Guiding Meditation for Transformational Yoga Teaching Exploring the World Within


Yoga teaches us that the pursuit of inner stillness is enhanced by periods of physical activity. As you sink into meditation, asana becomes a tool to embody higher awareness. Guiding Meditation for Transformational Yoga Teaching provides you with the support, practice, and guidance needed to bring all facets of your being into the single focus of samyama.

This module includes:

  • Immersion into the core meditation techniques of the Kripalu tradition 
  • An integrated practice of postures, pranayama, and relaxation to enhance meditation 
  • Simple yet effective tools to access the meditative states of dharana and dhyana 
  • Insight into the broad spectrum of meditation approaches and their benefits 
  • Discussion on how yoga and meditation can affect the wholeness, growth, and transformation processes.
