Advanced Breath and meditation journey

Make peace with the stormy clouds that sometimes colour our thoughts and feelings. Learning to accept ALL parts of ourselves is part of the journey of life. It’s when we resist that stress persists.

This course runs once a day for two weeks (Monday – Friday). We meet each morning at 6:30 am for 30 minutes.

We build upon, and explore more deeply, the practices covered in the two-week Beginner’s Breath and Meditation course.

These includes:

  • Additional breath techniques
  • Chakra meditation techniques
  • Longer periods in meditation
  • Mantra usage
  • Yoga kriya

FAQs

How is the advanced course different?

Once you’ve attended the initial beginners course, you’ll be invited to attend the advanced sessions, where we build upon the techniques learned in the beginners sessions. New techniques are added, but comfort and competency with the beginners techniques must be mastered first.

Can I start with the advanced sessions?

No, start with the beginners breath and meditation course to learn the basic techniques then you’ll be invited to join the advanced sessions.
OR
If you have an established breath work and meditation practice contact Leonie via email at hello@leonielockwood.com.au to check if it’s ok to join at this level.

What happens if I miss a session?

A recording of each session is delivered to your inbox each day within an hour of the session finishing.

What if I have questions about the techniques?

Each Wednesday we have time after class. Or you can ask in the private Facebook group or email Leonie directly.

Do I need to sit on the floor cross legged?

No. You might like to sit in a chair or even lie down for some of the practices.

Do I need to sit still if my body hurts?

No. It’s more difficult to meditate if our body is in discomfort. Adjust yourself, use cushions or blankets for support.

Will these practices cure my insomnia/anxiety/depression?

These practices will help you manage the symptoms of your insomnia, anxiety, depression. You will need to continue to practice these techniques over a period of time longer than the 2-3 weeks of these courses.

Is each course the same?

Each course will have similar components of breath and meditation techniques. Our experience of these will shift and change as we become more aware of our subtle body. Repetition and more repetition, builds new habits and behaviours.
