Tucson Pilates Studio adds Meditation group classes

water dropletsDecember 17, 2015, Tucson, AZ – Body Fundamentals Pilates & Movement Studio in Tucson, Arizona recently added meditation group classes to its service offering. Founder and Director Geneviève Nedder is a long-time practitioner of meditation and credentialed to teach several forms of meditation.

Nedder shares, “There are many types of meditation, including, guided meditation,  moving meditation and mantra based meditation. In the initial four group classes, I’ll be teaching a mantra based meditation that uses breathing awareness techniques and intention setting.”

Not only is meditation is a powerful way to quiet the mind, it also reduces anxiety, improves sleep and lowers the heart rate, reduces blood pressure and even lowers cholesterol. “As my own practice deepens, I’m able to be more present in my life, and to experience greater peace and vitality,” said Nedder, who holds numerous Pilates certifications and is a Chopra Center Certified Instructor with a focus on Ayurveda. “My personal meditation practice is one of my strongest tools for transformation. It has helped me know myself at a much deeper level and helps me manage chronic pain, continue to heal physically and live with more balance on a day-to day basis.”

Nedder is offering the first series of group meditation classes on four Saturdays from 8:30 – 9:45 a.m. Pre-registration is open for the following dates:

  • February 20th
  • March 5th
  • March 12th
  • March 19th   Due to family concerns, the March 19th meditation class will need to be rescheduled. Date TBA.

Single classes are $40, or register for all four at a special introductory rate of $150. Advance payment required. Private meditation instruction is also available and ongoing.
