Meditation on the full moon 17th March 2022

It’s been almost 10 months since I offered the last meditation class.

So we’ll kick off a new series of meditation classes with a Meditation on Thursday the 17th of March 5pm – 6pm. It will be held at our home in Silkstone. You need to book and confirm your attendance.

The cost is $13.00

The topic is on the full moon. Josie who you might know from the classes, will share some of her astrological wisdom and will tell us what is signifiant about this full moon in March (moon in Virgo) and close to the Equinox. We’ll start the class with breathing exercises and meditation, then astrology on the current mood, finishing with another short meditation to reflect.

To book your space please send me an email: hathayogaipswich@gmail.com or text 0423 477 725.

Affirmations – Advent Calendar

On the 1st of December I started with a 21 days meditation/manifestation challenge, initiated by a meditation group in Germany. Two weeks ago I suggested in a couple yoga classes (so not all of you in the classes know about this). Repeat a different positive affirmation or mantra every day as an Advent Calendar starting on the 1st of December until Christmas. If you were busy or didn’t know about it from me….. do it now or as a family game at Christmas or New Year’s Eve: everyone states a positive affirmation. You can come up with your own or there are many in the books by Louise Hay, Dr. Wayne Dyer, etc. for example.

If you like New Year’s resolutions start at the 1st of January.

You can start for yourself anytime…. and know that many around the world are doing the same. The gist is, when you practice or do something for a minimum of 21 days every day (if you miss one you start again at day one) it becomes a habit.

Here are some examples I created for you as a motivation and inspiration. When you repeat an affirmation often it becomes a Mantra.
