Meditation doesn't need to be seen as a zen master sitting still in an uncomfortable crossed legged lotus pose for hours chanting a Buddhas mantra.
Meditation essentially is a state of being, not doing which is easily accessible and comes in many forms. Through meditation we are not trying to control or turn off our thoughts or feeling, but become the witness or observer without judgement.
It's in this state of observing without judgement that we can drop into stillness. And experience the full potential of the present moment, to help us deal with the often demanding outside world.
Benefits of meditation...
Learning to meditate is like exercising a muscle that you’ve never really worked out before. It takes consistent practice to get comfortable. And it’s usually easier if you have a guide or teacher to keep you on track.
That's where Take a Moment steps in to help out. (~Headspace)

“The goal of meditation isn’t to control your thoughts, it’s to stop letting them control you.”
“Donna has completed two 8-week yin yoga blocks of classes for our firm, part of our employee wellbeing program. Each class has been full of happiness, laughter, challenges and relaxation, with always Donna bringing a unique twist to every class. The sessions have truly helped our staff focus on our own wellbeing and unwind after a big day at work. We absolutely loved Donna’s positive energy and can’t wait to continue working with her!”
Eliza, Allan Hall Human Resource Officer
Donna brings a beautiful energy to every practice and reminds us how important it is to step away from work, even for a short break to reset the mind and body.
