I played professional tennis for 22 years and my only wish is that I had learned meditation long before my journey on tour. It would have helped me on court to be calmer and clearer in tough matches. Now I’ve learned .... (it’s) given me a calmness and clarity I have always wanted. I feel more able to handle the trials and tribulations of what life delivers

What is Vedic Meditation?

Vedic Meditation is practiced for 20 minutes with eyes closed while sitting comfortably in a chair. A mantra is used to take the mind deeper leading to deep rest and relaxation. Anyone can do Vedic Meditation, even those who have a busy mind. In fact, one of the first things new meditation students learn is that thoughts are no barrier to performing this technique.

A key characteristic of Vedic Meditation is its effortlessness. Unlike some other techniques, there is no concentration or control of the mind.  

Vedic Meditation benefits

The technique's effect of dissolving stress and fatigue from the body has an energizing, enlivening impact while deeply calming the nervous system.  Practioners achieve a growing sense of peace and calm while being sharper, and more creative. Other key benefits are:
