The intermediate meditation course is for those who have already attended the beginners meditation course at Orange Bloom Yoga, or who have already developed their own meditation practice, but would like to explore different styles of meditation.

Throughout the course, as well as practising a variety of types of meditation, we will also explore some of the theory behind the practice; for example, how meditation helps us to access our subconscious mind, changes our brainwaves and influences our relationship with ourselves and others. The course will allow for longer sessions of meditation and self-reflection, helping you to deepen your own practice both during and outside of the class.

Meditation Styles covered in this course:

Zen meditation

Movement Meditation

Contemplation Meditation

Mindfulness in more detail

Chanting

Own practice/ discussion group
