LIVE Online Meditation and Mindfulness Classes FAQ’s
Hello! Emma here, thanks for stopping by!
It’s been fantastic meeting online these past 3 months and I’m thrilled to hear so much positive feedback. Who would have thought that meeting up to meditate from home would be quite so fun. Intrigued? Here’s what you need to know….
What happens in my LIVE online meditation classes?
I have a unique way of teaching meditation that’s both simple and fun and I’ve developed a philosophy for wellbeing that draws on a broad range of influences from poetry and nature, to psychology, philosophy and cooking.
I have a broad, non religious approach to meditation. I don’t follow any one school of thought exclusively (Ie: Transcendental, mindfulness, vipassana, vedanta) I see meditation as inner peace and I see the many approaches to it (which involve things like guided meditations, breathing, visualisations, focussing etc) as wonderful little shoe horns into that quite calm space. Why not explore them all and use what works for you?
I don’t have a formula for my classes as I adapt them to suit the class goers and they’re very much in the moment, but here’s a glance at how our classes have been going these past few weeks. (I’m open to special requests!)
It’s an hours class, divided into two halves. The first half is gentle breathing, present moment awareness and mindfulness practices. Then we pause for a little 5 min refreshment break. The second half guided meditations + a poem at the end for good measure. An hour can be a long time for some of us to sit and listen, so please do feel welcome to join in for just the first half, or for as much or little as you like.
How do you participate?
It’s a live class delivered through the free app Zoom. Once you book a place at my website you’ll get an email confirmation which includes access information to the live stream. During the class you’ll be able to see and hear me on screen, live at my house teaching the class. How exciting!
You can choose to have your video switched on if you’d like to wave and say hi and be seen, but you can also join silently with your camera and audio off, simply watching and listening. At the end of the class there is usually a 5 minute opportunity to share any comments, questions or observations you may or may not have. It’s a lovely moment. So precious in these times where so many of us are alone.
