“Yoga continues to gain immense popularity worldwide as a tool for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual gain,” said Mr. Gupta. “Yoga offers a wide range of practices including Asan (physical postures), Pranayam (breathing exercises), Pratyahar (deep relaxation), Dharana (improved focus) and Dhyan (meditation). They together are designed to enhance our material and spiritual life.”
Yoga has almost become a necessity of life in the modern world suffering from toxic stress. RxRelax Therapeutic Yoga ensures that this ancient practice is accessible to everybody, including people with chronic health conditions and mobility challenges. If you have not been able to practice yoga because of physical limitations, you owe this session to yourself. This practice is very easy to do, yet very powerful at subtle levels.
An experienced team of instructors will lead this yoga immersion. Session is designed to benefit beginners, as well as advanced yoga practitioners. Meaghan “Meg” James will start the program with Seated Therapeutic Yoga that will work as a tip-to-toes tune-up for everybody. This will be followed by a mat-based practice led by Pankaj Patel. Then Mr. Gupta will lead the group into the deeper dimensions of yoga with Pratyahar, Dharana and Dhyan practices.
Meaghan James, a registered Nurse, accomplished contemporary dancer/instructor, Usui Reiki master, and dedicated yoga practitioner who has completed the RxRelax Therapeutic Yoga teacher training, will also provide training.
After discovering yoga as a teenager, Meaghan has learned to love and embrace the incredible benefits of yoga practice physically, mentally, and spiritually. Meaghan believes that love, balance, meditation, and rejuvenation of the mind, body, and spirit are all things achievable through yoga. Meaghan is now dedicated to bringing this mind, body, spirit healing to everyone; especially those who may be unable to perform the postural techniques associated with contemporary yoga classes.
Meaghan is also employed at an outpatient mental health facility as a registered nurse, where she is dedicated to assisting clients with their mental health needs while also participating in the research of potential therapies that target a variety of mental health disorders. She continues to use her yoga and nursing education to teach a class that is assessable and safe for all students.
She is currently teaching four seated yoga classes throughout the week at Elliot Hospital in Londonderry for YogaCaps, Inc., and Lowell General Hospital’s Center of Weight Management. Her goal is to create an environment where any individual can explore and create a deeper awareness of the body, mind, and spirit, by becoming more aware of the present moment.
Born in Gujarat, Pankaj has been a student of yoga for over 30 years. She is a yoga instructor and has studied and practiced with Sudhir and Niru Parikh. She has also studied with Guru Nagendraji from Vivekananda Yoga Kendra in Bangalore, India. In 2006, she attended the Shibir of Baba Ramdev in Ahmedabad, India.
