During the six sessions, students learn step by step meditation process, relaxation postures, seated meditation postures, pranayama practice (breathing exercises), a review of joints and glands exercise routine, and the obstacles in meditation. The students are introduced to yoga philosophy and emotional purification techniques to help them understand and establish the meditation practice in their lives.

The six week class aims to help the students establish a long term personal meditation practice.
