Totally Meditation – About Us
Imagine yourself sailing through each day filled with serenity and calm, regardless of how stressful things become.
Imagine going for health checkups and your doctor being impressed at how much your blood pressure has come down.
Imagine being able to think more clearly and feel less anxious. To be able to let go of the past more easily, not worry about the future and just ‘be’ – right here, right now, enjoying the moment.
All of these benefits can come from practicing meditation on a regular basis.
Meditation doesn’t belong to any one specific religion or belief system, nor is it necessary to be flexible enough to sit cross legged on a yoga mat. You may be surprised to know that it can be done sitting in a chair, or even lying in bed.
You don’t need to sit for hours on end, blocking out the world in order for it to be effective. You don’t need to have a certain belief system or religious view.
Learning how to meditate and put it into practise is surprisingly easy and the benefits that come from even a small amount of time spent meditating per day can be enormous. There are many types of meditation styles and techniques. You’re sure to find one here to suit your circumstances and lifestyle. Meditation Classes through Totally Meditation are simple and easy to understand, respectful and accepting of all religious, spiritual and personal beliefs.

My wish for you is that you find at least one meditation style that works well for you and I invite you to come and explore!
