What to expect at a meditation class

About the classes

The meditation classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. Everyone is welcome.

Most classes run for an hour and a half. We meditate sitting on chairs to ensure that everyone is comfortable. There is no physical exercise involved and no need to wear any special clothing.

The format of each class is as follows:

Attending the class

The classes are organized as short courses, usually 3, 4 or 5 weeks long. You can attend the whole course or simply drop in whenever you can as each class is self-contained, or you can just come along to try a session.

You do not need to book in advance, simply find a meditation class near you and enrol when you arrive. If you would like more information or help, please contact us on 020 8455 7563 or email us at info@meditateinlondon.org.uk.
