The first known recordings of meditation were discovered in the Indian subcontinent in the form of wall art, dating back to 5,000 BCE. it was predominantly used in a religious capacity and as Buddhism spread through Asia, so did the practice of meditation. By the middle ages, meditation had reached as far as modern-day Russia and was practised in some form by nearly every ethnic group in the region. It has only grown in popularity since, and many millions around the world see and feel the benefits.
Learning the art of Meditation is a highly sought after skill and one that brings many physical and mental rewards. Scholars, religious figureheads and everyday individuals have been practising meditation since antiquity, and science is now catching up to the incredible health benefits that accompany the practice.
Practising meditation can offer numerous mental and physical health benefits, but it can be hard to achieve the “breakthrough” successful meditators often espouse. With ClassBento’s range of meditation classes, workshops and exercises your journey to enlightenment will be guided by an expert in the field of meditation to ensure you get the most out of the workshop. With our variety of styles on offer, our classes offer an environment that is incredibly relaxing and peaceful, and are an ideal way to wash away the workweek stress.
Not only are they popular with individuals and small groups, but meditation workshops are available for corporate bookings and team building events, and are a wonderful way to bring the office closer together and to detoxify staff from a stressful week. Studies have found that offices that run collective meditation classes for their staff have a decrease of over 70 percent in absenteeism, due to the positive mental health benefits of group meditation.
Our meditation workshops in Sydney are a great way to explore the self and understand what’s required to successfully meditate on your own and get the most out of your quiet time. Ranging from basic meditation to sessions that focus on movement and energy, there’s a variety of options for you to start on your meditation journey.
Health benefits of meditation
There are a multiplicity of reasons to participate in meditation classes, as the practice of meditation has endless benefits. By meditating regularly, you increase the production of a chemical known as telomerase, which helps the brain ward off degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. This can increase your memory and focus by up to 50 percent, and when regular meditators were surveyed, over 80 percent of them said they felt an overall improvement in wellness and energy levels. It can also help your physicality, with 30 percent of regular meditators over fifty claiming it had successfully alleviated back pain. One company in the US found that after three years of regular office meditation workshops, productivity had increased by 120 percent, and absenteeism had dropped by 80 percent. It’s also been found to aid in the treatment of depression and anxiety among adults and children, and one school who introduced a meditation program had a 45 percent drop in student suspensions.
