Meditation classes are for people new to meditation or those who are interested in finding awareness, achieving peace and improving focus. Meditation is a practice where an individual uses techniques such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, mantra, as well as, a focused activity. It is a method of focused concentration, bringing yourself back to the moment over and over again. Meditation has been widely studied and has been found to reduce pain, stress and anxiety while promoting a healthy, happy and a more aligned life. Individuals who meditate have been found to sleep better, decelerate aging, be more present and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Meditation will help you change your viewpoint towards life, and provide peace of mind and inner joy. It helps you achieve a better understanding of yourself as well as others. Meditation is easy to learn – especially when it’s guided. Results that you see through your body and your health, enhancing self awareness & promoting emotional health, will become amplified when you practice daily. Join Isabelle for weekly guided meditations. Learn how to sit comfortably, breath deeply, release the body & still the mind. Each week we’ll explore new methods of meditation.

Yoga Is A Way Of Life
“In my 30’s I started a yoga practice that introduced me to a more natural and calming way of life. I became a Mom, and with this body and chemical change came a whole new education on mental health and how hormones can change one’s life quickly and drastically. I went to work on myself energetically, physically and mentally. I did whatever it took to heal myself. I learned all about our energetic body and how it functions. I learned breathing exercises; I even learned that sometimes conventional medicine has a place and that if we marry the natural with the conventional, miracles can happen.” ~ Isabelle
