Fiona Sundari Law is a seasoned yogi and has facilitated many meditation courses and sessions both for the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organisation and now at Viveka Gardens Yoga Farm.

“It seems that meditation should be so simple: just sit, slow the mind and wait. But now more than ever people find it hard to let go and connect. Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda’s mission was for peace in the heart and peace in the world. They offered the most practical guidance to this highest of practices and I am delighted to pass on what their disciples, my teachers, taught me.”

 

 

Feedback from previous session I decided to get more involved in the meditative/mental aspects of yoga by signing up for Fiona’s meditation workshop.  Spending time with Fiona was like hanging out with an old friend and everything she described about meditation kept me strongly engaged. It helped that I was really interested and excited about the topics, but she complemented that by having answers to all my questions, and usually just left with me with more questions and ideas. Since the workshop I have been practising meditation alongside my yoga practice and have been feeling much calmer, more in control of my anxieties and generally more centred. Thanks Fiona! J
