At Lifestyle, the focus of all our workshops and trainings is providing individuals with tools to manage stress in their busy, modern lives. We pride ourselves on making meditation accessible to everyone, from the yoga instructor looking to expand his or her offerings, to the busy, working mother, looking for a few luxurious moments of silence.  Mediation for the mainstream is our goal!

Why meditate?

Meditation has many benefits - our top five reasons to give it a go:

1.  Subdue your stress - with our busy, modern lives filled with text messages, appointments and personal commitments, it’s not surprising we’re stressed! Meditation helps you learn to approach all of these tasks with a clearer, calmer mind, reducing our flight or fight stress response in a variety of situations.

2. Better your brain – a regular meditation practice helps you access the cortical brain, which is responsible for memory, attention, thought and language. Greater mental clarity and memory is often the result!

3. Better your body – As meditation helps to reduce the number of flight or flight stress responses you experience in a day, it also reduces the negative physical side effects of stress. Through a regular practice you may experience increased immunity, increased metabolism, a lower heart rate and better digestion.

4. Improve sleep – do you often find yourself unable to sleep because your mind is racing?  Meditation can help you slow down these racing thoughts, making it easier for you to fall asleep.

5. Increase creativity - Most of us get stuck recycling old stories, habits and behaviors and have a hard time escaping! Meditation opens you to possibility and inspiration for accessing new ideas and new solutions.
