LEARN TO MEDITATE

MEDITATION COURSES and MEDITATION CLASSES conducted by MIND-YOGA (Aust) is training in traditional, authentic Kundalini Yoga Meditation under the direct guidance of Meditation Master of 30 years teaching, Dean Das.

To be who you are is to transcend who you are. To transcend who you are is to be your original self.

MEDITATION YOGA is to assist you in becoming 'a better person'.

  • A 'healthier', more 'aware', and more 'compassionate' person.

  • To grow in self-understanding - to better 'know' one's self.

  • To silence the demands of the 'conditioned' mind, to understand the nature of our self, and the world to which we belong.

Yoga is the stilling of the thought fluctuations in the consciousness.
— Yogah chittavritti nirodhah' (Yoga Sutras, 1.2)

MEDITATION YOGA COURSES and CLASSES is training in Complete Yoga - Yoga of the Body; Yoga of the Vital energy (Breath); and Yoga of the Mind - the Yoga of 'the three bodies' - constituting the human organism. Meditation Yoga 'reconditions' the human organism by oxygenating the blood cells; purifying the endocrine system; rejuvenating the central nervous system; stimulating the brain cells, causing the release of  'positive' neurochemicals.

METHODOLOGY -  Meditation Yoga methodology consists of 6 series of physical postures (asanas); in conjunction with breath regulations ( pranayamas); in conjunction with mental concentration (pratyahayara/dharana), bringing the mind to a state of            'one-pointedness' (samadhi). This is the experience of your Self. 

Samadhi is the state of ‘one-pointedness where the Self is revealed in its own splendour.
— Yoga Sutras, 1.3

TO 'MEDITATE' is a highly skilled pursuit. As with any learning, the quality of what is learnt is dependant upon the quality of the knowledge being taught, the integrity of the student, and the quality of the teacher. A poor teacher= little knowledge; an average teacher = average knowledge; a quality teacher = quality knowledge. 

DEAN DAS is an Australian born, Meditation Master, a direct disciple of revered Siddha Meditation Master, Swami Prakashananda Saraswati of Nasik, Western India. Dean Das lived with his Guru in a 'one-to-one', Guru-disciple relationship for 7 years atop Sapta Shringi Devi mountain, Nasik, Western India. For the past 35 years, Dean Das has been teaching, lecturing, and writing on the philosophy and practice of authentic, traditional Meditation Yoga.

MIND-YOGA MEDITATION is the methodology of the 9th Century Siddha/Nath Tantric Yogic tradition of Western India. 

Note: MIND-YOGA, MEDITATION CLASSES and COURSES require no prior 'pre-requisites'. You do not need to be 'young'; 'super-fit'; or capable of performing abnormal and pointless, 'monkey' contortions. Mind-Yoga is concerned only with your personal integrity, a willingness to learn, and a commitment to your personal growth. 


“When the breath is steady, the mind is steady. When the breath is still, the mind is still. When the mind is still, it is called Samadhi (total union). Hence, the breath must be regulated until still” - Goraksasataka

”Yoga is the means and the goal. Yoga is the path and the result. Live in Yoga to realise Yoga. Understand Yoga through Yoga. Yoga is living in harmony with your Innermost Being
