Register for Guided Meditation

Guided Meditation - ages 18+

Meditation offers healing at the cellular structure, stress management, anti-anxiety effects, sleep assistance and a general feeling of wellness. Join Instructor Roxanne Foura for a meditation class that allows for progressive relaxation of the body with a voice-guided mentor. After breathing is established and the body comes to complete relaxation, the visual imagery layer of guided meditation is added. This guided meditation allows for the consciousness to slip away allowing the underneath subconscious to take over and receive the affirmations, imagery, healing and simple peace to flood the unconscious mind. Participants need a mat, blanket and pillow for head and/or under knees.
