We will be conducting an eight week introductory meditation course on Tuesdays from 9 September to 28 October. The classes will be from 18.30-1945 hours. Our new venue is The Yoga Village, a beautiful and very tranquil centre located at 19 Clonmore Road, Bryanston.
Most new meditators find it difficult to establish a regular practice routine. This course provides you with tools to help you set up a structured practice that you will develop over the 8 weeks of study.
Each week you are given simple exercises to do. And you are guided through the process of creating a meditation routine that suits your lifestyle and situation. No more wondering when to do what – just join the dots and they’ll lead you down the path of bliss!
The cost of the course will be 880 Rands. That includes a copy of the book, “Close Your Eyes, Open Your Mind”, an accompanying CD which contains 2 guided meditations set to beautiful, calming mantra music and a home study guide book to assist you in your joyous journey of self discovery.

Free personal instruction in meditation is available on request. Personal instruction may be requested when the person has already felt the benefits of beginner’s meditation and would like to commit to a daily meditation routine as part of their personal growth and self development.
Meditation is the yoga practice that helps a person to develop mentally and spiritually. There are many forms of meditation, but the meditation taught at Ananda Marga is based on the principle “as you think so you become”. In meditation one should concentrate one’s mind on a positive and uplifting thought. If one does this on a regular basis it leads to a profound state of peace and harmony.
Our instructors, who have years of experience, will show you how to meditate using proven techniques that will enable you to withdraw your mind from the distractions of the “outside” world and concentrate within.
Meditation quiets the central nervous system, lowers blood pressure by as much as 20% and has a profound effect on physical health. In addition the regular practice of meditation builds up a person’s capacity to pay attention and learn anything, making it the best form of mental exercise.
As the mind is drawn within we experience a deeper sense of peace and harmony with life by concentrating on the infinite. With a calm body, a controlled mind and a blissful spirit, we become more ideal human beings, who are ready to render dynamic social service to the world.
