Recently, I was invited to attend a rooftop meditation session at Chopra Yoga Centre. I have been meditating since I was a child and, as I was taught by my father, this was my first meditation session taught in a group setting. In my opinion, it was an amazing introduction! When I started meditation, I don’t remember being told that it was okay for stray thoughts to enter my mind during meditation; that this was normal and to not beat myself up about it. I’m not saying my father was a bad teacher, he just taught me the way he was taught. To empty your mind is one of the most daunting tasks in meditation and Danielle has a great way of putting you at ease with this challenge. She has a great amount of experience behind her with over a decade of teaching experience. Danielle completed her initial Yoga Alliance Teacher Training under the guidance of certified teachers in the style of Ashtanga, Anusara and Iyengar. She is certified in all three programs from the Copra Center of Wellbeing in Carlsbad, CA, including Primordial Sound Meditation, Perfect Health Ayurvedic Lifestyle Program and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga. Danielle travels throughout the US and Canada teaching yoga and meditation at events and teacher trainings. The Chopra Yoga Centre offers gudided meditation sessions at 9AM and 3:30PM on weekdays as well as a Candlelight Meditation at 7PM. If you have been thinking about starting a meditation class for a while now, be sure to check out the Chopra Yoga Centre, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Wishing you all Peace, Health and Happiness!
