MEDITATION WITH NATALIE

Natalie Martinot is a Vedic Meditation teacher, physiotherapist, clinical pilates instructor, yoga teacher and integrative health coach with a huge passion for holistic health and the complementary blending of both western and eastern techniques and philosophies to create ultimate wellness.

 

Natalie’s 13 years practising as a physiotherapist and clinical pilates instructor gave her a great foundation in the science of the human body but more and more she found patients required not just physical treatment but that stress, exhaustion, nutrition and other lifestyle factors had a huge effect on their outcome. This ultimately led her to studying the mind-body connection ( that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning) and led to her becoming a meditation teacher.

Natalie teaches private and small group Vedic Meditation classes here at Space to Flow as she feels it is the one tool we cannot live without when navigating the modern world we live in today. By giving the nervous system a deep state of rest through this simple effortless meditation technique we dissolve accumulated stress, tension and fatigue which ultimately leads to a calmer, happier more stabilised state of being ( life changing for mothers!)

She is also continuing her studies in meditation and mindfulness for children and is passionate about conscious parenting and holistic education where we are nurturing the mind, body and spirit of each child.

As a solo mother of 3 young children, Natalie can relate to the demands, overwhelm and exhaustion modern motherhood can bring but is committed ( through simple techniques and tips she has learnt) to helping others bring the simplicity, presence and joy back to life with children.

Natalie can’t wait to assist others through modern science and ancient wisdom to curate the life of their dreams, without comparison, moving from passive socially conditioned thinking to living life on their terms in true alignment with their highest self.

VEDIC MEDITATION

What is Vedic Meditation?

Vedic meditation is a powerful yet simple mental technique which absolutely anyone can learn. Through the use of a personalised mantra to draw the mind naturally inward one goes beyond thinking into a state of ‘being’ or stillness.

There is no ridding your mind of thoughts, no forcing, controlling or chanting. It is a simple, effortless technique easy to learn under the right instruction.

Although this technique originates from an ancient body of knowledge called the Veda, it is perfect for the demands of our busy modern lives as it de-excites our nervous system and enables us to achieve a deep state of rest dissolving accumulated stress, tension and fatigue.

Experiencing this state on a regular basis, meditators quickly become happier, more present and aware, less reactive, calmer, more adaptable, more creative, more productive, and have increased energy and vibrant health.

The technique

This effortless technique can be practised anywhere you can sit comfortably with your back supported and eyes closed (even with noisey surroundings) which makes it easily integrated into daily modern life.

By practising this transcendent technique for 20 mins twice a day, you’ll achieve an extraordinarily deep state of rest ( several times deeper than sleep) which has profound effects on the mind and body complex providing enormous long term benefits to a person’s wellbeing.

With the correct instruction, you will be on your way to a clear state of mind, increased creativity and productivity and a happier more stabilised state of being.

Group Meditation

Meditating in a group is an experience not to be missed and is a wonderful way to connect with community. Our group meetings are a way for our students to stay connected and inspired, ask questions and absorb additional Vedic knowledge.

Rounding

‘Rounding’ is an advanced technique that combines gentle yoga asana, pranayama ( breathing exercises) and meditation and is extremely powerful at dissolving years of accumulated stress and fatigue.

It is designed to clear deep-rooted stresses and is the equivalent of weeks of regular twice daily meditation in one session.

Once you learn the Rounding sequence it can be practised at home as an addition to your existing meditation practice.

Please note - it is a pre-requisite that you already practice Vedic Meditation to attend a rounding workshop.
