MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS: Dhyana Yoga courses

Free introductory courses are held regularly and consist of three half-day workshops held on alternate Sundays 10.30am – 1pm (N.B. these are in-person meetings, not online). Please see the Activities page for brief details or here for a full synopsis of the course.  A ‘Mudras & Pranayama’ workshop is also held occasionally; this is not for beginners and only open to those who have previously attended an initial course.

BOOKINGS for courses:  please email [email protected], specify which course you are interested in and provide your full name. You will receive a confirmation by email which will include Joining Instructions with course-specific information (including any Covid restrictions if still applicable but it is hoped that this will no longer be necessary).

Please note that booking a course involves a commitment to three Sunday mornings on alternate weeks.
