Yoga for Meditation
Meditation is the true heart of Yoga. It is the pinnacle practice for which the other techniques are preparing us. It has the power to heal, illuminate, and give insight. It can empower us with new capacities and strengths, and it is essentially connected to who we are at our core.
Practiced appropriately, meditation can help us develop a deep, calm, and stable focus and also return us back to our most authentic self. These are core elements of developing and maintaining balance and a positive state of wellbeing.
Sustainable change only happens with regular practice, but as you’ve probably experienced, it can be difficult to attempt or commit to alone. Our weekly Wednesday Morning Meditations can be very helpful in supporting you to develop the habit of a regular practice.
If you are new to studying with us, we recommend you take our Understanding Meditation online course as well. The background given in this six module, pre-recorded class will greatly enhance your experience within Wednesday Morning Meditation.

What You Will Learn
Through regular participation in this class, you will learn:
- How meditation works through experiences
- To appreciate the subtle potency of meditation in your life
- Experience how different preparations set up different meditative experiences of the same object
Join us each Wednesday morning for a live, 30-minute, guided meditation. Our Executive Director, Chase Bossart, begins with gentle preparation incorporating a variety of Yoga tools including: āsana, prāṇāyama, mantra, sound, and Vedic chanting.
Each month, we choose a new focus for the meditations. Themes range from objects (oak trees or pure streams), to sounds and sensations; each theme resonates differently with each person, which generates a unique experience for each practitioner. Everything brings something different to meditation and generates different experiences. Results vary with each meditation and with each meditator and are often related to your personal life experience.
Over time, with regular participation, you will discover a lot about meditation and yourself.

I am thankful for feeling peaceful.
We did a meditation using 4 phases of the moon…The movement & prāṇāyama really quieted my mind & allowed a new acceptance of a current life circumstance for me… I am thankful for feeling peaceful, allowing solutions to arise without forcing them.
