Primordial Sound MeditationI have made vague attempts at meditation several times throughout my life, but always ended up giving up, feeling like I was no good at it. When I started Anandi’s online course in Primordial Sound Meditation, I was determined I would succeed this time. I expected it to be a lot of hard work, but I was prepared to put the effort in because I’d read about all of the benefits associated with meditation. I was a little dubious at the thought of the whole course being online – I’ve never done brilliantly at online study. But this worked really well – because you’re not working at anything. I was beyond surprised to find that, in my first meditation after my matra ceremony, I meditated for 40 minutes without once fidgeting or wondering whether it was time to stop yet. The emailed webinars were very reassuring and interesting, offering advice at just the right time for me. There was no pressure involved; the email turns up, you watch the webinar, and a few days later the next one arrives. I have watched each webinar every time as I found them really useful for reminding myself what I was doing and why I was doing it, but also for reminding me that I was not failing or doing it wrong. When you sign up to do the course you commit to meditate every day for 3 weeks, because it takes 21 days to form a habit. During those 21 days, you get a daily “21 days of meditation” email with a quote, a little message from Anandi and maybe a video or link to an interesting site. There is so much information available, which is fabulous if you like to completely immerse yourself in what you’re doing – but also, none of it is necessary for meditation, so there’s no pressure there. Since completing the course, I have continued to meditate. I had a few days where I didn’t meditate, and I noticed immediately how rubbish and generally miserable I felt. Was this how I lived my life every day before I learned to meditate? Now I make sure I meditate every day!
Very powerful and relaxing.
After a very full on week, I was in a frantic space! Having the opportunity to slow down and centre myself through essential focus on breathing has literally rendered me a new person! I feel totally different peaceful, calm and positive!
I found the morning extremely interesting and was amazed at how much I did not know about my own breathing. The exercises were great, spot on for time and number of people in the room. Thank you Anandi – I look forward to practising the art of de-stressing!
The best way to describe my experience was that I felt tired of lacking in energy at the beginning and after the workshop I was transported to another dimension returning feeling totally blissed out and energised!
Namaste, Anandi is a fabulous yoga teacher. I took several of her classes while we were in India together. Her patient energy infused with her gentle, soothing voice made it easy to relax comfortably into poses. Her knowledge and expertise of anasa and pranayama as well as yogic philosophy made her classes more personal and informative than most. I highly recommend Alison Anadi to anyone wishing to deepen their yoga practice. She is a master teacher and wonderfully compassionate spirit. Hari Om
I feel very fortunate to have taken part in today’s class. Upon meeting Anandi, she radiates warmth and I found this so very relaxing and calming. The breathing exercises made me more conscious of my own breathing habits and anatomy which made sense. The best sleep relaxation came at the end when I woke feeling unable to speak! Thank you Anandi for this opportunity
Very relaxing and positive experience. I’ happy to have learnt these techniques and will practise them at home. Great introduction to yoga and meditation. Thank you Anandi

I’ve written before about how the blue light from our TVs, iPads and mobiles can contribute to sleep issues. I’ve been reading more about that lately and wanted to share some of this with you. […]
I’ve been reading lately about the concept of a “second sleep.” There’s a professor at Virginia University in the United States called Professor Roger Ekirch who has spent the last twenty years studying the historical practice of sleeping in two distinct segments, with a period of wakefulness in between. He has found hundreds of mentions of “second sleep” during his research; all of them mention it as if it is just a normal part of life and not out of the ordinary at all. […]
I’ve written posts before about using alternative therapies to overcome sleep issues and stress, but there’s something else that can be really helpful in overcoming illness and stressful situations… and it’s not something you would normally think of as an “alternative therapy.” Nevertheless, this is a practice that has been scientifically proven to help in all manner of illnesses, and is an excellent reliever of stress. And best of all, it’s entirely free! […]
