Each class starts with a 5 minute introduction followed by 35 minutes of meditation.

This is an opportunity to land inside yourself and take a break. The classes are led by certified instructors from Mindfulnessgruppen.  (Learn more about the nine attitudes and watch video clips where Jon Kabat-Zinn describes them by clicking here. )

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini Yoga uses a specific series of yoga postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), chanting of mantra and meditation techniques to bring about a relaxed state of mind, to re-connect with the body and to re-align with life's natural rhythm. The practice helps to develop strength, a healthier body, a more balanced glandular system and an overall lightness of being. Each class begins with a period of tuning in and is followed by a warm-up to bring vitality to the spine. The main work of the class is called a kriya, which is a prescribed sequence of poses that focus on a specific area of the body. Each posture series is practiced in conjunction with a specific breath that intensifies the effects of the poses with the purpose of freeing energy in the lower body and allowing it to move upwards. The class ends with a meditation, often with a special focus, and a closing mantra.

MOONDAY MEDITATION

“Meditation is an adventure, the greatest adventure the human mind can undertake. Meditation is just to be, not doing anything, no action, no thought, no emotion. You just are and it is a sheer delight. From where does this delight come when you are not doing anything? It comes from nowhere, or it comes from everywhere. It is uncaused, because existence is made of the stuff called joy!”                                        OSHO


Monday evenings, Urban OM will offer its members the opportunity to try different meditations outside our ordinary meditation schedule, as a means for everyone to experiment, experience and discover the wonder of meditation.

We aim at offering a varied mediation assortment. Many of the mediations were created by OSHO, and others were developed based on ancient techniques rooted in Vedic, Yogic, Sufi or Tibetan traditions.

As Monday is named after the Moon, we consulted the astrological Moon and selected a meditation inspired by the energetic mood of the day. Each week the selected meditation will be displayed on the schedule.
