There are so many different variations of meditation, and for beginners, it can seem rather overwhelming. However, the benefits of meditation have long been proven, recognised by many of the leading scientific journals.

Liz Thomas has been studying and practicing meditation within the Sakya and Kagyu traditions of Tibetan Buddhism for over 20 years. Liz is an advocate of the benefits of meditation and wants it to be accessible to all, so runs a free session for all every Wednesday at Square Works.

These sessions give you the tools to calm your busy mind and offer you positive food for thought and reflection. Over the centuries these elements of Buddhism have helped countless people across the world to deal with the challenges of everyday life and develop their compassion for others.

Yoga is a practice that has become embraced by more people than ever over recent years. Yoga aims to unite the mind and body, with the word ‘yoga’ literally meaning to yolk or unite. In the practice of yoga, this is done through the use of yoga postures and breath work.
