We were invited early last week to offer to grade 12 students an introduction to Sahaja Yoga meditation (theory and practice) within the context of the Eastern/Western philosophy.
Besides the presentation, we meditated collectively, there were Q&A as well we even challenged them to some basic yogic postures. Our team of volunteers loved it! Let’s hear what the Students have to say about our class ..
