Z Online Class: A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.
Studies have shown that meditation can have a positive impact on heart rate, blood pressure, stress, and mood. While these are important at any age, they are especially vital to our well-being as seniors. Meditating for even a few minutes a day can help increase our sense of calmness, comfort, and equanimity. There are many ways to meditate, and class members will have an opportunity to try several of them. Layla will also share some of the history and philosophy behind the practice of meditation.
