Struggling to manage a chronic health condition? 

Come along to my weekly meditation class at Seed Yoga + Wellness. You will be guided through a short seated practice (no you don't have to sit cross legged!) and a longer lying practice. Each week we explore a different theme and discuss how to take the lessons from our meditation practice into daily life. We explore different types of meditation such as mindfulness based practices, mantra based and visualisation.
