online meditation videos

  • Feature Friday: What’s New?

    We have some new and exciting classes to tempt you with in this week’s online yoga video lineup.

    core workouts  Gigi Yogini and students filming her new Hard Core on the Floor class at the Secret Studio.
    1. Chill Out. Supta that Padangusthasana with Annie Carpenter in yet another raved about, alignment-conscious "Quickie" SmartFLOW. This online yoga class is perfect for the end of the day, post airplane sitting, or traveling. Completely relax and restore and still the mind and body in this reclining yoga class.
    2. Got Core? Now you do. Try Gigi Yogini’s new Hard Core on the Floor class. Build strength. Connect to your center. Plus, rest easy knowing that the practice never picks you up off the ground. That being said, be prepared for a challenge intermixed with some humor and JOY.
    3. Play with Pranayama. Try an online meditation from a lineage of teachers in the Himalayan Mountains, brought to Jeanne Heileman from her grand-teacher, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. Learn a special form of Pranayama to heighten your access to the Third Eye, increasing the amount of Prana (Life Force) you are able to gather and maintain in that region. Once that gathering is established, be guided on where to move this amazing ball of Prana. This is a powerful practice and worth repeating to improve your ability to build Prana and then keep it inside.
    4. Free Up the Hammies and Shoulders.  Try Joan Hyman's new class - a short online yoga sequence designed to open the shoulders and hamstrings in preparation for a yoga practice or any type of athletic sport. There’s no need to roll out your yoga mat for this one. All you need is your lovely self, a wall, and a strap.
    5. Shake Up Your Shakti! Try a Mixed Level Dharma Yoga practice that gives one a very real experience of the classical yoga teaching that has made Yogi Sri Dharma Mittra in such demand as a teacher the world over for so many years now. Those new to yoga and those who already have an established practice will all find much to inspire them in this complete online yoga practice. Maha Shakti is primarily asana (yoga postures), but what's on offer here represents a complete practice including both guided Deep Healing Relaxation (7 minutes) and a final meditation (3 minutes). This program is an excellent introduction for those new to Dharma Yoga and the powerful teaching of Sri Dharma Mittra and it will make those that miss spending time with him at the New York Center feel very much at home. Overall, a well-rounded and complete yoga practice. "I look forward to serving you only the best of the best," says Sri Dharma Mittra.

    There you have it, yogis. Chill options. Core challenges. Pranayama play. Hammie and shoulder liberation. Plus, the best of the best. Enjoy!

  • A Meditation That Could Change Your Life

    “Whatever great thing is known to men is known through meditation…the whole earth, middle space, the heaven, waters and even mountains are engaged in Dhyana.” ~Chandogya Upanishad

    Meditation (Dhyana) is the 7th limb on the 8-limbed path that is Ashtanga Yoga.

    Easy Seat + Mudra

    When you enter a truly meditative state, your mind is perfectly concentrated. In this state of pure concentration, the mind is free from all distractions. Nothing fills your mental space but that of supreme focus. Have you ever reached this state?

    If you don’t have a consistent meditation practice, you will (probably) never reach this elated and profound place. Meditation requires discipline and dedication.

    To help attain Dhyana, you must practice all limbs of yoga: Asana (physical postures), Yama and Niyama (pure lifestyle, morals, and values), Pratyahara (withdrawal from the senses), Pranayama (breath control), and Dharana (concentration). Practice and perfection of these 6 limbs will enrich and enhance your meditation practice. Once mastered, you will be able to attain Dhyana or “perfect concentration.”

    It's also, of course, just as important to practice meditation regularly. But where do you start?

    Start with the following online meditation class - an integration of Pranayama and Tantric techniques. It is recommended that you practice this meditation everyday for 30 day to really experience its powerful, transforming benefits. I challenge you to reserve a space for this potentially life-changing online meditation.

    Anahata: Finding the Lightness of the Heart with Jeanne Heileman - The quality of the Heart Chakra is Air, yet most of us do not feel as though our hearts could be as light as air. This online yoga class will help transform your perspective to the positive energy and region within the heart. You will be guided through a specific Pranayama exercise called Viloma that moves the breath against the grain of what is comfortable, to create expansion and strength in the lungs and heart. Jeanne will then guide you on a journey deep within the heart, using Tantric techniques she has learned from her master teacher, that can help you find a beauty and deep love that dwells at the darkest cave of the heart. This online meditation can be a life-changer if done for 30 days in a row. Have a blanket available if you like to sit on one during meditation. (24 mins.)
