About Your Instructor
I'm Heather Larson! Nice to meet you and thank you for joining my course! I teach yoga, meditation, and Reiki. I'm also a certified transformational life coach.
I started seriously meditating in 2015, though I had tried it over the years before then. I was meditating with a teacher and counselor who was teaching the methods of Joey Klein. We'd meet weekly to try different techniques and it was everything because my life was in a state of flux back then. I was leaving broadcasting to work in the addiction field. I'd barely been an entrepreneur for a solid year, having started my own Reiki business in 2014.
My meditation practice helped me stay calm and navigate the changes in my life as best as I could. It gave me more focus and awareness. I credit it with helping me to stay true to myself during a time of turbulence. This isn't at all to say the practice was easy!
I know from personal experience it can be hard to start a consistent meditation practice. It can also be difficult to get what we want from a new meditation practice. I also feel that many of us somehow become aware of meditation early on in life. In our younger years, we may not be "built" to meditate yet. (I was this way!)
I think by early adulthood, we become aware that "meditation is good."
- But why is it good?
- What are the benefits?
- And what does meditation do anyway?
- HOW do we do it?
- What if I can neither become quiet nor sit still?
I'll be answering all these questions in the course in order to help you learn to meditate.
For me, I thought meditation would bring inner peace. ☮️
I have actually been given so much more than that!
Meditation for me is a tool, a quiet inner place I can go to any time, and a place I can find answers through increased self-awareness.
Even when I only practice once a day, the rewards of meditating remain.
Meditation is a part of my first love, yoga! I never planned to, but I managed to detour away from my yoga teacher training in order to complete my 100-hour meditation teacher training at Yogamu.
Of course, before Online Yoga School for Yoga and Yogamu for meditation teacher training, there was always the traditional Japanese art of Reiki. Reiki offers its own take on meditation in both Eastern and Western Reiki. In fact, meditation is "prep" for Reiki. It's a way to increase the amount of Reiki flowing through you.
