The structure of this training is as follows and includes:
Three weekend intensives, one of which being a weekend immersion at the Himalayan Institute.
This training offers has an emphasis on the fundamentals of meditation, such as posture and breathing, and how these issues greatly effect the quality of practice. We will compare, practice, and discuss different meditation techniques, but there will be a focus on one-pointed meditation methods such as breath and mantra awareness as are primary in the yoga tradition. An emphasis is also placed on how one prepares for meditation, such as through deep relaxation, yoga asanas, diaphragmatic breathing, and pranayama techniques. Students will also learn the basic principals of leading guided meditations, as these are especially useful for those who are unable to use upright postures. Upon completing the program, opportunities may be available to volunteer as an instructor in our non-profit outreach programs.
Trainings are offered on a rolling basis, beginning whenever we have a minimum of 5 students. The next training will likely begin in mid April, or May. With a small group, we will try to take into account student’s schedules in setting the 2 Philadelphia dates. Himalayan retreat dates are set, see the “Retreats” page of the website.

Wesley Tudor is highly trained in meditation as practiced in the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, as well as in guided relaxation and biofeedback. Our 3 Hatha With Seated Meditation classes are half asana and half meditation. Private lessons are also available and a good idea if one is completely new to meditation, or wants to get some customized help in taking it to the next level.
Introduction to Meditation Private Session $85.
Developing a Full Meditation Practice – two additional sessions $150 for both.
The meditation classes center around a 30 minute sit. We start with some warm up which may consist of breathing exercises, relaxation, discussion, or a few stretches. After the meditation there is time to check in and to discuss experiences and trouble shoot any obstacles which arise. Meditating with a group can give a helpful boost to your practice, and the sharing of experiences helps everyone to learn and grow.
