Class Schedule

Cultivating a Peaceful Teen Introductory Class
Markham, Unionville, Aurora, Thornhill, Stouffville, Richmond Hill, Pickering, Ajax, Toronto

Event Details: Meditation and Yoga for Teens.  This program is currently not running.
Our Teen program is based on the teachings of Dr. Deepak Chopra's "7 Spiritual Laws of Yoga".  We run the program for 7 weeks introducing the teens to a new "Law" or principal each week, encouraging a conscious awareness of these laws into their daily lives. Meditation, Mantras, Movement and Mindfulness play a significant role in each class.  Parents are asked to participate on the home-front, engaging in open discussion as well as encouraging a daily practice of Meditation & Yoga.
Yoga is a natural form of healing for the mind and body. Life for teens and pre-teens is busier than ever as days are filled with school activities, homework, sports and more commitments in the community. Yoga reduces stress and brings benefits of balanced energy that will help your teen/pre-teen to make healthy life choices.

Special Events

LearnHowToSTARTMeditating Introductory Class
Markham, Unionville, Aurora, Thornhill, Stouffville, Richmond Hill, Pickering, Ajax, Toronto

Event Details:

This is a beautiful opportunity for you to explore Meditation, it’s myths and it’s wonders in a safe, open environment with like-minded women.  If you’ve ever felt a little overworked, fatigued or frustrated (and who hasn’t), you just may find some centering & peace from these teachings.

Raise your level of consciousness through the practice of Meditation.

Find inner peace through the practice of Meditation.  And make some valuable changes in your life through the practice of Meditation.

A Course for Women Only – Gentlemen, please see the “one-on-one” Meditation Coaching Click Here

  • Having trouble sleeping?
  • Feeling a little frazzled?
  • Looking for a little peace and quiet in your day?
  • Ready to make some changes, but just can’t seem to get there?
  • Raise your level of consciousness through the practice of meditation.

Our 7-week “LearnHowToSTARTMeditating” program is based on the teachings of Dr. Deepak Chopra’s  “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success”.  I will be your guide as we explore each “Law”, one per week.  The hour will consist of viewing clips from the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success DVD, engaging in brief discussions around it’s content, intention setting, followed by a group Meditation.  Follow up information will be sent out after each session.

This 7-week session is perfect for those who have always wanted to try Meditation but just didn’t know how or where to start. It is also ideal for those who currently have a regular Meditation practice and would love the opportunity to explore Deepak’s teachings in a little more detail and enjoy the dynamics of group Meditations.   It’s our intention that you leave this 7-week course with a daily Meditation practice of your own.  This is not guided Meditation.

This course would be amazing for those who have already taken it!  Each group brings a different energy,  a different list of questions and new insights!  Graduates of Primordial Sound Meditation may find this course helpful in maintaining your daily practice while enjoying the experience of group Meditation.

“I wanted to let you know how much your meditation class has changed my life. I’m raving about it to so many people because it was truly life altering. I am now way less stressed out, I focus on my present moment awareness, I’m getting so much better at not creating conversations in my head and I’m confident and open to all opportunities. I’m grateful for how you approach this teaching with such love and enthusiasm. I will be back to learn over and over again. Xo”

Why am I qualified to teach this?

I am very excited to say I have been certified through The Chopra Centre as one of their instructors of Primordial Sound Meditation as developed by Dr. Chopra and his partner Dr. David Simon.  The teachings of  “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” as well as “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga” were a large part of our 2-year teacher training.  Thanks so much.
Looking forward to sharing some stillness with you.


This is both a time and financial commitment on your part.  Let’s make sure it’s the right choice for you.  A complimentary 15 minute call is my pleasure.  Please email ahead to book this call. Course fees & options may be discussed at this time as well. Thank you, Cheryl
