Interested in doing meditation in nature live or with a group? I can lead small groups through parks nearby to help you find your center, in the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Pick a park nearby, the Prairie Path, or we can head to another space. Must be booked at least two weeks in advance to allow for proper preparation.
Combine your love of the outdoors with your meditation practice. This 25-minute meditation will open your senses and have you noticing the little things - the marvelous in what is in front of you.

I often begin my classes with some three part, or yogic, breathing. It has so many benefits, such as better use of the diaphragm, providing extra oxygen into the blood stream and surrounding organs. And let's face it, this might be the only time you'll take a deep breath today.
