Candle meditation is a beginner meditation practice, also known as a contemplative practice. This is the easiest way to meditate for beginners in meditation. This practice helps in increasing their attention span. This will be covered as your first lesson in Yoga Sutra during your meditation teacher training course, in which you will focus on a burning candle. It will be a meditative practice of shimmering movements, the play of heat and shadow.

Yogis performed penance and rigorous meditation in Rishikesh for many years. The energy generated by reflection always creates an aura stored in the cave. To meditate in the cave, beginners benefit from accumulated energy, which leads them to more profound meditation. There are many such meditation caves in Rishikesh where Yoga Sutra teaches his students to practice meditation. Meditation Cave in Rishikesh is an energy aura sanctuary, a place of introspection and peace.

Dynamic Osho Meditation by spiritual philosopher Bhagwan Rajneesh adds a new energy dimension. This meditation highlights the importance of multi-consciousness, awareness and joy. Osho meditation often involves music, movement, and a holistic approach to uniting the mind, body, and spirit. At Yoga Sutra, we also introduce students to dynamic Osho meditation so that they do not miss any dimension of meditation.

Mantra meditation is a simple form of meditation done as mantras to concentrate the mind and develop inner peace. Rooted in spiritual traditions such as Hinduism and Buddhism, this ancient technique is powerful in calming the mind, increasing concentration, and promoting a deep sense of peace. This exercise is done quietly or verbally to avoid offending personal preferences.

Zen Buddhist meditation is a cornerstone of Zen and Buddhism. Yoga Sutra meditation practice in Rishikesh focuses on a specific asana. The purpose of Zen Buddhist meditation is to experience the nature of existence and achieve deeper awareness directly. With an emphasis on simplicity and direct experience, practitioners learn to observe thoughts without attachment. This practice leads to a deeper understanding of the mind and awareness of the nature of reality.

This is an integral part of the meditations provided in the excellent and intricately detailed Kundalini Yoga Sutra. Kundalini focuses on the life force, activated from the Muladhara Chakra in the spine and transmitted to the Ajna Chakra. Kundalini is the best practice of meditation, which takes each meditation student to the best point of energy. Kundalini meditation aims to awaken the dormant spiritual power (Kundalini) within the body. Kundalini meditation leads to higher consciousness, spiritual awakening and a deep sense of interconnectedness with the universe.
