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 >>

Meditation

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
