Ealing Yoga, Meditation and Philosophy Centre  aims to help individuals lead a happier, more natural life and so discover how to evolve spiritually. It believes that physical and psychological well-being are enhanced by coming to know oneself at all levels – body, breath, emotions, mind – and beyond.

To help individuals develop inner awareness and understanding, the Centre has, for the last twenty years, offered courses and retreats on hatha yoga, breathing & relaxation, meditation and practical philosophy.

The Centre has come into being to help people let go of that which separates them from the truth of who they really are.     

Traditionally this is done in three ways;

(i) Study; presenting writings that help students distinguish between the Self and the non-Self.

(ii) Meditation; by which a person may come to experience their True Being within.  

(iii) Satsang; which provides the group energy and stillness needed to remove misunderstandings and deepen Self-knowledge.

Hatha Yoga

Awakens a renewed sense of balance, poise and harmony to help you encounter yourself in a fresh and uplifting way. Adjusts posture so that one’s internal flow of energy brings about the most balanced alignments possible. The centre runs a wide range of yoga classes in Ealing and the West London area.

Breath and Relaxation

1917435_orig-0516a-120Calms the deeper nervous system by cultivating smooth and diaphragmatic breathing. Systematically relaxes habitual and often unnoticed tensions that drain energy during the day. A key preliminary for meditation. Class details >>


Typically our mind is restless and confused, jumping from one thought to another making it difficult to find balance and rest. Meditation quietens the mind whereby one’s natural inner happiness can be realised, and all activities are seen in a new light.

'It tends to lower or normalise blood pressure, pulse rate, and the levels of stress hormones in the blood. It produces changes in brain-wave patterns, showing less excitability ... Meditation also raises the pain threshold and reduces one's biological age ... In short, it reduces wear and tear on both body and mind, helping people live better and longer.'
Bernie Siegel MD surgeon and professor Yale University

Topics include; functions of mind; positive and negative emotions; avoiding stress; ego; desire; devotion and surrender; who am I?; what is wisdom? Class details >>


The Friars Retreat 2022

We are delighted to announce that we have a venue and dates which will enable us to revive our annual retreat event. The venue is The Friars at Aylesford Priory, Kent, and the dates are Saturday 2nd-Sunday 3rd July 2022.

Places are limited to a maximum of 20 and accommodation will be in single occupancy rooms on the site. The programme is still to be decided but will include the usual mix of yoga, relaxation, philosophy, chanting and meditation. We will have a large meeting room available, which will double as a yoga studio. The cost of the weekend includes accommodation, meeting room hire (with projector and screen), breakfast on the Sunday, lunch on both days, supper on Saturday (and possibly Sunday) and tea/coffee/biscuits. We have opted for a vegetarian menu.

The venue is fairly easy to get to from London, by car - approx 90 minutes on the M25/M20. There is also a train service (just under 1 hour) from St Pancras International.

Cost per head is £147.75 (with supper on the Sunday) or £137.85 (without supper on the Sunday)* . A £20.00 (non-refundable**) deposit is required to secure a place, and the balance is payable by early May 2022 (date tbc).

*Our programme will start around 11.00 am on the Saturday and is likely to finish late afternoon on the Sunday. You have a choice as to whether you would like to stay for supper or not and you can confirm this on paying the balance.

Most of the places on this retreat have now been taken, but there may be the possibility of some additional accommodation if there is a demand for it. Please e-mail Lisa at : enquiries@ealingyogamedpc.org.uk

to register your interest.
