Advanced Courses

Advanced Meditation Techniques

For anyone who has an existing technique consistently for at least 12 months, it is recommended that they obtain an Advanced Technique.  In Vedic Meditation, an Advanced Technique is designed to allow the meditator to integrate that elusive, deeply charming state that we slip into in our deepest meditations, into every moment of our awakened state.  A good example of how and Advanced Technique supports us in our evolution is a car shifting from a low gear to a higher gear to gain speed.  We can get where we need to go in first gear, but it will take much longer than if we shifted to a higher gear.

An Advanced Technique may involve a student learning a more advanced version of their existing mantra, or it may involve learning a more advanced method of using the mantra they have already received.  The Advanced Technique is customized by Paula for each meditator based on their needs and state of Consciousness.

Rounding 

Rounding (aka Industrial Strength Meditation) is a systematic procedure derived from the Veda that’s designed to deeply purify the mind and body. This process consists of a SuptaBaddhaKonasanaspecific sequence of easy yoga poses (asanas), balancing breath work (pranayama), meditation, and horizontal rest. No prior yoga is neccessary.  Modifications are made for those with injuries. Paula is a trained yoga teacher from the Rising Lotus Yoga Studio  teacher training program in Sherman Oaks.

The simple elegance of the technique produces powerful results. Performing the proper progression with correct intention allows deep rooted stresses to release and brings the nervous system back into balance. Effortless purification of the mind and body through Rounding can quickly bring you to a greater state of happiness, clarity and peace. It’s easy to learn regardless of your physical fitness and you can incorporate this advanced practice at home for enhanced benefits. Workshop is $75. rounding is taught as part of the Exploring the Veda Course at no additional charge

Rounding Workshops

 The workshops last up to 4 hours and you receive a new technique. Once learned you are self sufficient in the technique for life. Take a look at our current schedule for more details.IMG_0370
