Mindfulness is becoming highly sought-after, as increasing numbers of people discover its benefits. The state of being simultaneously relaxed and focused, mindfulness is an enormous asset to bring to our professional and personal lives, especially our relationships. Spiritual people may have an advantage here, as this state is often achieved through prayer or meditation.
Those of us without a natural leaning towards spirituality often try a one-off meditation class. Guided by such reassuring principals as “If your mind wanders, don’t lose patience, just bring it back”, we often arrive at the end of the session feeling deeply relaxed, but without having learned the skills to improve our focus.
Acharya’s House of Yoga & Meditation would like to offer you the opportunity to develop mindfulness techniques which will enhance your clarity and problem-solving skills long after the course finishes.
Established in 1968 by the noted Indian yogi Upendra Roy, Acharya’s pioneered yoga and meditation in Sydney. Over the decades, our school has taught students from a variety of faiths to realise their full potential using mindfulness skills.
Our practice begins with basic yoga postures to first relax the body, before settling down to quieten and train the mind.
