Meditation course in Ålesund

Dear all temporary staff at NTNU in Ålesund!

DION in Ålesund invites temporary employees to a short introductory course in Kriya Yoga meditation on Friday the 8th of September at 11:15-12:45. This is a meditative (not physical) yoga practice that is suitable for everyone, regardless of physical shape.

Kriya Yoga is a form of meditation that is based on attention and breath. This authentic method originates from yogis in the Himalayas and has been practiced through thousands of years. Through the meditation practice, you experience deep inner silence, which is the basis for peace, joy and self-realisation. Kriya Yoga can be easily integrated into your daily life and will give you an expanded attention and presence, so that you more easily can be “here and now” by calming down your thoughts. The method is very efficient for reducing stress and strengthening concentration and, not least, for bringing out the natural inner joy and satisfaction in life.
