Meditation brings Awareness, Clarity, Peace.
Meditation lowers blood pressure, decreases inflammation, lowers cortisol levels, improves brain health, improves immune function, reduces anxiety and stress, and supports healthy aging.
With regular meditation, we can influence our bodies, minds, and emotions and move into a place of expanded awareness - a life-changing event.
Meditation allows us to see our thoughts, to observe our thoughts, but to realize we are not our thoughts. It is a powerful and profound spiritual technology.
Meditation is a foundational practice of our Ayurvedic Lifestyle services and is taught daily at our Perfect Health programs.
Everyone can benefit from meditation and the best part is that you need no experience or special background. Learn to live more mindfully, cultivate joy while improving your overall health, and experience the best days of your life now!
Join me here in Tucson for group classes at my studio, or for Private sessions.
Meditation truly is for everyone and I look forward to the opportunity to share it with you.

4 - Week Introductory Meditation Course
In this introduction to meditation, participants learn the benefits of meditation, as well as an introduction to different types of meditation. Students learn to recognize the primary stress responses, and how those responses immediately impact our physiology. Students are given tools to increase awareness of these responses with specific attention to recognizing the “fight/flight/freeze: response, and how to change it.
If you’d prefer private meditation instruction, please contact me at the studio to schedule a private 1:1 session. Whether you’re just starting out or interested in deepening your current meditation practice, together we’ll explore the best techniques and tools for you.
Establishing a regular practice is very important. It is through the consistency of practice that a habit may be cultivated. Learn techniques for consistent home practice and stress reduction in a private, peaceful space.
