What kind of meditation ?
Below are my 7 most successful MEDITATION techniques.
Most of which I gleaned from THE YOGA SUTRAS by PATANJALI .
7 PATHS TO SAMAHDI or 7 MEDITATION TECHNIQUES
SAMAHDI EXPLAINED ~ Samahdi is a state of intense concentration achieved through meditation and is the means used to dive through consciousness.
THE 7 meditation techniques below are what I have worked with for over 20 years.These techniques enable to me to meditate deeply when ever I choose to.
The idea is we practice them all then we decide which one or which combination works best for us.
1/BREATHE pranayam~ Oxygenates the entire cellular body. Alters the bodies physiology with in 7 mins. Reduces stress, hi blood pressure and pain.
2/ LISTEN suniai~Really listen. Focus only on the tiniest of sounds, or the sounds that are the farthest away. This will lead to a quiet mind. We will listen my crystal bowl and various other absolutely stunning meditation pieces I have been listening to for 20 years..
3/ FEEL pratyahara~Withdraw the senses from the outer world. Focus on the smallest of physical sensations like Breathing,or the heart beat. Feel the temperature of the air as it enters and then leaves the nostrils. This too will quiet the mind.
4/COUNT I like to use counting to break the habit of ordinary thinking . I count when I breathe. Mala beads fall into this category .They have 108 beads. Counting to 108 or repeating anything 108 times is potent work . I DO IT DAILY . My most repeated mantra is THANKU ♥ Why thank you ? Ive researched resonance , vibration and frequency thoroughly. I believe that being grateful creates greatness thus great outcomes .
5/CREATE creative visualization~See in your minds eye great aqua oceans, or swim with dolphins..or imagine the perfect job or even a romantic dinner with the man of your dreams.
6/ SING I sing sanskrit and sihk prayers on you tube. i love it
7/ PRAY My daily prayers fall into the singing category.I don’t actually pray.I dont need to as I TRUST aka I have faith …I just sing along to ancient prayer. However, I do know many women who do pray so I honor that as a meditation technique. It’s pure quantum healing in fact.
more info coming
please text me NOW if you have questions
If you do need yoga, pilates and or meditation regularly I’m taking private classes. A private class is ideal for one or two people.
The investment for a private class with me is :
$30.00 for one hr
$50.00 for two hrs
We shall discuss, explore, and attend to your new and old injuries.
OR we can do a semi silent hatha yoga class.
You choose when we hold the session.
$50.00= two hours
$30.00 = one hour
The sauna is included in the $30.00 or $50.00. The Far Infra Red Sauna lives in the yoga room – see pic. Its a 2 seater. The science suggests this kind of sauna is a rapid alkalizer, in other words its really good medicine as no dis-EASE can exits in AN ALKALI ENVIRONMENT.
PRIVATE CLASS MENU
FAR INFRARED SAUNA: rapid alkalizer
EASY PILATES : THERAPEUTIC > PELVIC/ SPINAL ALIGNMENT>I teach simple easy pilates moves and stretches , at the same time the student gives me feed back about how that feels. This gives me important information as the body is highly intelligent. Working this way slowly helps eliminate old soft tissue pain THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY , eventually allowing for actual pilates (see below) where we go hard and create interior/ core strength and a new body if are willing to practice at home daily.
GENERAL PILATES : BUILD CORE STRENGTH >PELVIC FLOOR >pilates combines yoga stretches and pretty triky moves that Joseph Pilates invented. It was the early 1900’s he was a dancer a boxer a yogi and a trapaese artist , war broke out, he found himself imprisoned but as well he had an injured spine and no one to help so he decide to heal himself whilst on his bunk – he adapted all kinds of found objects to aide his healing. …genius I love it. You will too . i think its the quickest way to get results…but we do need to practice at home.. ill give u a few exercises to practice each week. I was never a fan of home work but when it comes to our bodies …home work is essential. id like daily exercise to become everyone’s habit.
Regardless of how wonderful Pilates is like all things if done incorrectly can easily injure us. So when practicing it we must put our ego away and go slow . until the core strength is such that u cannot injure ur spine… then its a free for all 😉
BOOT CAMP PILATES : BODY SCULPT>HI CARDIO>we can only go a head with boot camp pilates if your spine pelvis are %100 .You MUST NOT HAVE SCIATICA .
Boot camp Pilates is a blast. I used to teach it with loud music to about 20 young women . It didn’t take long for us to be dripping wet . Its pretty much like being in a gym. I give you challenging work to complete . You breath thru it.. and get super fit, however like all things injuries can occur…I cant feel what the student feels.. so ask the student to stop immediately if pain begins… the old no pain no gain is bs… fact is . pain is a warning system .
EASY YIN YOGA : THERAPEUTIC >very gentle, easy stretches mostly seated or laying down with a focus on gentle controlled breath work. Using a chair instead of the floor is ok too.
IYENGA YOGA : DIFFICULT YOGA > when you are fit and strong I’m happy to go there, but until the hips knees back are string I will not . when I was a 20 yr old Iyengar yoga was fashionable. It became my first love in the yoga realms.Unfortunately I’ts very patriarchal in nature,push push – ignore all pain ! Eventually it caused much un wanted stress on my some what broken ballet body so I let go of the mind set and approached the same postures with a yin-soft- mind.
PRANAYAMA : BEGINNERS BREATHWORK > MAXIMIZE OXYGEN IN BLOOD > SOOTH VEGUS NERVE > BALANCE BRAIN CHEMISTRY Breathing isn’t rocket science, we’ve all been doing it day and night for our entire lives . I use a simple de stress breath in for 3 out for 3… and hold…always Via the nostrils.
If your nose is blocked you may have may issues with your diet.
NUTRITIONAL ADVICE : .SOME FOOD IS MEDICINE > SOME WILL KILL US SLOWLY > I studied natural medicine in USA in the 80s. I didn’t certify as I came home to Oz . However I did learn alot and have applied it since 2001 ive grown herbs for heart disease ….all bacterial issues… insomnia..low blood pressure etc etc … the majority of my knowledge is based on herbalism and bowel cleansing , managing pain naturally via alkalizing the body with good food. I’ve also studied permaculture aka sustainable organic farming , and learned a lot about the nutritional value of the weeds that grow naturally among us in our back yards . Providing we have never sprayed the area with weed killer these weeds really are super foods with the best nutrition ever.
MEDITATION : ”GO WITHIN OR GO WITH OUT” > THE GOOD NEWS IS IF U DO THE BREATH WORK FOR LONG ENOUGH YOU WILL MEDITATE. Over the past 23 yrs I have fine tuned 7 scientifically very easy meditation techniques…..They are not new, I did not invent them, I make no claim to them as many healers do . But I have studied and practiced them thoroughly. Ive taught them in over 700o classes thus have proof they work
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME I’ve been teaching Hatha Yoga in HEALesville since 1999, in fact I’ve taught over 7000 classes in the Yarra Valley Since 1999. Before that I taught regular classes in Fitzroy.

MY MISSION STATEMENT~~~MY Intention is to be of use to you, to build you up, to make you realize that you are amazing and that you can heal your own body. The only thing that is missing is information. Once the body becomes more alkali than acidic we begin to think differently, we become smarter ! or a better way to say that is~ when we r alkali, we are simply the best version of ourselves.
Thanks for taking the time to read my web site when so many of us are too busy to read AT ALL.
