   meditation Springdale YogaMeditation 101

Thursday evenings, 6:30-8:30 p.m.,
Oct. 13, 20, & 27

Learn how to meditate as well as how to get past the inner obstacles and to recognize your inward progress.

Meditation is the inner experience of your own blissful essence, called svaroopa in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. The way you get there is by quieting your mind, which is easy when you use the ancient methodologies taught in this course.

This course will make meditation easy and accessible for you, as well as provide you with the understanding of what you are doing and why. Your three class meetings take you from the beginning stages to being an experienced meditator in just three weeks. Maitreyi teaches you how to handle any difficulties you encounter in the process, so meditation becomes one of the reliable highlights of your day.

Margie at SYMCYou will be learning Svaroopa Vidya Meditation. Maitreyi is an authorized teacher working under Swami Nirmalananda Saraswati and the Svaroopa Vidya Ashram in Downington PA. To learn more about the lineage and Swami Nirmalanda (formerly Rama Birch) go to her ashram website at

Tuition: $110 (includes 3 class meetings and a meditation journal).

$37 for Repeat Students.

Next course: Another course will begin in January 2017

Registration : Contact Maitreyi Margie at 608-215-7218 or Maitreyi


Student Feedback -

- I attended the Meditation Course this summer and enjoyed it very much. Margie is a very caring instructor who really strives to help her students understand Svaroopa Vidya Meditation and put it into practice. I liked the 3 evening sessions. It was a great way to begin my medication journey. Thank you Margie!

- I really enjoyed the class. I have been searching for my own Self for long time (I am only 33, but I “Want to be Happy!”), always attributing my downfalls to outside world circumstances (“poor me…why me?” blah-blah). At the class I learned that Self is already within me (well, I knew that from yoga reading handouts) and what you can do to “get in touch” with it. I really enjoyed our discussions. Also, thank you for sharing web page where we can listen “freebies”-so good! I listened already to bunch of them and it all makes sense (only because I went to your class and we already talked about it). To be honest, when first time I walked in for this class-it all was so new (I was very skeptical, even if I read a lot about this subject, saying mantra first week was kind of goofy and not natural), but when I left the class it all got so natural. Just need to keep on practicing and focusing on “space between the trees”!
Thank you!

-"Thank you for the wonderful class Margie. I'm so glad I finally signed up. The weekends are pretty busy so having the option to go during the week was helpful. I've been on a path of finding my “true” self for a while now and feel that this will really help me to go within. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone looking to connect with their inner essence. Thank you for your wisdom and grace!"

- "I previously attended this meditation class and decided to take the class again for a refresher. I am so glad I did! It has helped strengthen my practice and being in her beautiful studio with a group allows for a wonderful meditation experience."

- "This is the second time I took the meditation course at Springdale yoga, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get started with meditation in a supportive environment. Easy to follow instructions and sharing in a safe place. As an experienced meditation practitioner, I enjoyed joining the group for these 3 weeks."

- "Thank you so much for teaching the introduction to meditation course.  I have always wanted to learn more about beginning a true meditation practice, and your method of teaching is so inviting.  As a beginner, it was wonderful to learn the philosophy of meditation and the benefits of a daily meditation practice.  I liked the small class which allowed us to discuss our practice and questions.  I highly recommend this class to  anyone interested in beginning a meditation practice."

- "I have tried many times in the past to start meditating daily, and was never successful.  The three meditation classes with Maitreyi (Margie) really made it possible for me to continue and have my own practice at home.  I have all the tools I need to succeed and feel motivated to continue. Thanks so much."

- From a returning student: Once again, I enjoyed this Meditation Class very much. I feel that it is excellent to Meditate and I am so glad that I came to class so that I would "begin again". I think that previously I did not have a set/routine time for meditate, so then I skipped it and eventually stopped. This time I feel that I have a good consistent time and it is working better for me. Perhaps, this is one of the "keys" and I know that you mentioned this several times in your sessions.

- From a new student: "Hi Margie, I too will miss the Sun meditation course. It was a very well presented introduction to the value of meditation for people and the method of using mantra for meditation and daily life. I have found the approach of using mantra has helped my meditation by helping me get into meditation more effectively. Using mantra daily in challenging situations has also been very helpful for keeping me calm and focused. Thanks so much for being my teacher! Namaste!" KN

- From a returning student: "Hi Margie, I want to respond to your request about the meditation class. Each meditation series that I have taken I learn more about it. I experience it in a different way probably because I am becoming more open to God within. I appreciate those who attend and share their experience. I appreciate your guidance. Namaste," JD

Satsang is a Sanskrit word that means "in community with seekers of the Truth," It is a gathering of like-mind people who are seeking the Truth-about life, itsShivaya purpose, and how to find that purpose-where it resides.
