Dhyana (Meditation) is one of the most important practices for yoga students. Most people have an image of someone sitting quietly with their eyes closed, but what really happens inside? How do we stop our mind from chatting? What does it feel like when you’re finally able to still the mind? What are the different types of meditation and which should I practice?

These and many other questions will be addressed during this workshop dedicated to meditation. There will also be 3 different types of meditation practiced during the workshop. This workshop is suitable for beginners interested in an introduction, as well as experienced students hoping to heighten their understanding and practice.

The workshop will be conducted by Acharya Hersh Ji, the Director of Yog Sadhan Ashram.
