ASMY also offers a selection of meditation classes and courses to choose from. Take a Discover Meditation course where you will learn how to practice meditation and incorporate it into your daily life or join a fully guided Deep Peace session, which will take you to a place of pure relaxation of body, mind and heart.
Kirtan (sacred yoga chant) is the soul of the yoga system and being one of the most simple, enjoyable, yet powerful forms of meditation, is held regularly throughout the week and at all ASMY classes.
ASMY also host large events such as Chant for Peace Kirtan Festival and the recent World Yoga Day festivities that were held in many locations around Australia.
The core value of ASMY is ‘a balanced life’. Nowadays everyone is running so fast to stay in the same spot trying to deal with the stresses of work, family life, and the polluted, congested cities that most of us live in. Add to this the increasingly horrific world events that we are confronted with daily through so many medial outlets; it is no wonder that everyone is suffering enormous amounts of stress both mentally and physically.
How many times have you thought ‘Stop the world, I want to get off!” but find you cant even squeeze out a few minutes from your busy life to step off the wheel. That is where the meditation and yoga classes offered by ASMY come to the rescue.
ASMY is a non-profit organization offering simple, enjoyable programs that can benefit everybody regardless of age or current physical condition. ASMY's goal is to guide you to a more balanced lifestyle, helping your body become stronger and more flexible, your mind calmer and thereby increasing your sense of well-being and vitality and bringing a greater sense of sacredness into your daily life.
The ASMY website (and Facebook page) is where you will find all the information about classes, activities and timetables that will help you take the first step to ‘step off the wheel’ and begin the journey to find optimum physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
