I AM PEACE MEDITATION
Three week course (usually a four week course)
Sunday early evenings
4 - 5.15pm
Commences October 14 - November 4 (no class on Sunday 28 October)
Presented by Adriana Cortazzo
Cultivating meditation as our most natural daily habit.
Gentle movements to start each class. Then we stop and sink into stillness. Each course offers it’s own unique focus through yogic techniques that provide a solid foundation for understanding how to bring meditation into your everyday living.
Meditation promotes healthy habits that will change your life forever.
Even just 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference. A study conducted by Moore, Gruber, Derose, & Malinowski, 2012 showed that a daily practice as brief as 10-minutes can result in more efficient cognition and better self-regulation.
DOING THIS COURSE MEANS
deep relaxation guaranteed
learning gentle movements for less tension
taking a break without leaving the country
feeling more like you
and possibly the deal breaker (drum roll please)... feeling less stress
here’s the best part…. No previous yoga experience necessary!
In every class we spend the first 20 minutes moving and releasing the body and breath from stuck energy that forms itself in stiffness or worse still, injuries. These are passive and fun moves to energise and relax the body and mind.
Meditation is not easy at all. The sitting. The stillness. It takes time, preparation and practice to get to a place of comfort with it. I AM PEACE is a method presented by Adriana Cortazzo that adapts traditional yogic practices presented in a creative and explorative approach. If you need to quieten your mind and are clueless to how you're going to convince your body to co-operate, then give this course a go.
According to the wise sage Patanjali yoga can be understood and achieved through the immersion of the eight limbs (eight steps) to which meditation (Dhyana) is a part of. To approach yoga secularly without adhering to all the eight limbs is like breathing and omitting the air. Within this course of I AM PEACE we take into account the eight limbs and use it like a map to explore deeper layers of who we are.
Meditation is a beautiful practice but one that is a challenge to grasp. With enough preparation both physically and mentally it is possible to cut through blockages and arrive to some experience of clarity. Our devotion is remembering how we got there and repeating it as often as we can.
Meditation is about cultivating a kind and clear presence of being. Adriana draws from her 30+ years as a yogi and offers very traditional techniques that will deeply change how you feel about stillness.
Students report sleeping better, feeling more relaxed around usual stressful situations and generally happier. Sometimes students walk in with a headache and leave feeling lighter and alleviated from their tension.
Each class is an experience to transform and reset the dial of who you are.
PEACE IS OUR DESTINATION
To become friends with it.
To love it and learn how to live with it permanently.
So that it becomes your go to at times of turmoil
"It is not about learning, learning, learning, it is just about dissolving into emptiness, and then from your emptiness, you are speaking from the source."
~ Sri Mooji ~
WHAT OTHERS WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE...
"I started yoga when my life was at a very low ebb. I looked for classes online in my area and was very drawn to your classes. I’m not sure of the reason but I knew intuitively that I needed to go to your classes. I have noticed that you are very aware of all of your students, seeing when we are struggling and tailoring the exercises to both the class as a group and the individual. Whilst the yoga classes were a blessing I needed something more. I am peace seemed to offer the missing component to my life. Again I was drawn to the description of the class and to you as a teacher and mentor. I was not disappointed. I was and continue to be amazed at how far I have come with the mediation classes. In the past I have never been able to find that place of peace. Your classes have given me the tools to find that oasis in my day that gives me the strength to keep going. I know I have a long way to go but I can now find that peace if only for a few moments.
I am now free of the anti depressants that were meant to be the solution to my problems. Instead of mind numbing drugs, I now use the methods you have given me to cope with the daily struggles in my life. If not for the strength and love you have shared I would not have had the courage to seek someone with whom to share my life, and as you know I have found my soul mate.
For me yoga, and in particular the I am peace classes, have given me a greater understanding of my own body and the knowledge that I must love and care for myself in order to love and care for others. I shall always be eternally grateful for the gift that you have given me. I know in my heart that I would not have achieved this with any other teacher. Your gift is your empathy and understanding, your humour and the huge knowledge that you share so freely. You are not only my teacher and mentor but I do hope a lifelong friend". Deborah Flood
I highly recommend the Intuitive Room especially after attending today's beautiful meditation. Adriana has so much knowledge and to share this all with us today made it even more special as she is so passionate about her work. Adriana you are an amazing human please just keep them coming.
"Be prepared to surrender any expectation and be amazed! When you attend the I AM PEACE course, the layers of ego melt away to reveal your true self. Beyond breath-work, beyond meditation, Adriana takes you on a journey of self-exploration, peeling back the layers to find a true understanding of self, and with an open heart embrace compassion, gratitude and love for self and for others. I Am Peace will allow your authentic self to shine through, illuminating your path. It has for me..."
