Meditation at RBY

As you many of you have noticed we’re slowly building classes at RBY that reflect a variety of interests. It’s the hope, though, that it’s not just a mess of different offerings, but a cohort of classes that compliment one another. At RBY, we begin with learning classical, alignment based yoga and then we can continue our practice by working on endurance and muscle strength in the power vinyasa, strength clinics and our Kundalini Class, and finally we can learn to settle our mind in meditation. Of course, meditation in many ways is both the base for a good yoga practice and often functions as a test to show us just how deep and honest our asana practice has been thus far, challenging us to go back to the mat and explore the mystery of breath, mind and asana ever further. Regardless, RBY’s method is a truly a holistic approach to health and well being. Rather than paying for multiple gyms and studios all around Seattle and Shoreline, a student has the option of developing in multiple ways just at our humble little space.

With all this in mind, i’m planning on starting one or two evening meditations, Monday from 6:15 – 7:00 p.m. and Thursday from 6:45 – 7:30 p.m. The idea behind these sits is that they will not be structured as a class (as the other 3 scheduled meditations already are) but will be for more experienced sitters to simply come and sit in silence for one or two rounds of meditation.I will not put these particular sits on the physical calendar, as I wouldn’t want new students to come in expecting instruction and get scared off with 45 minutes of silent sitting practice. 🙂 But, they will be a set part of the schedule and announced at regular meditation sits for beginners to learn about. Feel free to shoot us an email at richmondbeachyoga@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Warm Regards, Rob
