Do you want to elevate your life and wellbeing?
This 'not to be missed' transformational course will offer you the framework to develop, deepen and share with others the amazing benefits of meditation and how through daily a practice can transform your health and wellbeing.
This comprehensive and supportive online training course brings together the ancient wisdom teachings plus modern-day mindfulness and scientific research of mindfulness and meditation that we see today. This is interwoven in a practical way that allows you to explore techniques for building a strong daily practice and transforming the way you see the world. Over the course of these 12 weeks, together we will dive deep into these practices and from your personal journey, meditation practice and a little self-inquiry, begin to explore the art of deepening your own meditation practice and maybe sharing or teaching meditation.
Following almost twenty years of self-practice and 10 years teaching meditation, Sonya created this course out of a desire to help others to develop their own personal practice as a source of inspiration and support and find their authentic voice in sharing these practices and teachings. See more about Sonya here and her own journey of meditation.
This course is suitable for everyone from all paths of life whom are drawn to learn and deepen their meditation practice through the lens of ancient wisdom teachings and modern day practices.
This course is also open for certified yoga teachers who wish to develop and cultivate their own personal meditation practice and develop their skill in teaching these practices while continuing their Continuous Education requirements.
