Guided Meditation


This class is taught by:

David Westlake

It's hard to believe sometimes that this is my life.  Teaching yoga, celebrating a cycle class, and sharing interesting ideas with all of you...wow!  I get to do this everyday.  For me, the awe that I feel about where I am and what I do is a testimony to yoga at it's deepest core.  It has led me on a path to places  that exist beyond my wildest dreams.  Yes! If you listen to it's call, yoga will take you on the most wildly authentic journey you will ever go out upon.  It's out there! As an instructor, my most sincere hope is that you might start to see (even if just a small glimpse) of your authentic path glistening before you in one of my classes.  Namaste!

Before I tried yoga, I thought I wasn't the right kind of person for it. I was a broke, chain-smoking artist, who was slightly cynical and disconnected from my body. A good friend finally talked me into going to a donation class when I lived in San Francisco. It was a huge class, and it seemed like everyone was there. There were all kinds of dispositions, body types, and skill levels - I loved it . I kept practicing because it felt so good afterwards (now it feels good during). I could breathe deeply for what seemed like the first time. I discovered that there is no "kind of person" who does yoga. Yoga can be for anyone. Still, I wondered if I would become perfect - perhaps an enlightened being, or an underwear model- but what has actually happened is much better. After many years of breathing, stretching, sweating, and paying attention, yoga has helped me experience equanimity and acceptance. I feel more grounded in my body and alive. I hope to share that experience in my classes.
All levels. Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality. It also helps create balance and cultivate inner peace. Meditation may produce profound results on all levels of your being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Come connect you with your own inner powers of vitality, clarity, and love!
