This class is devoted to exploring breathing (pranayama) practice and meditation. Time spent dwelling on our breath is particularly conducive to creating a settled condition for meditation. Participation in this class is greatly enhanced by coming with regularity. All are welcome to this class whether we are new to this kind of work or experienced. The cost is £5 or according to your means. It comes after my yoga class. it is great to do both, but this hour is also self-standing. Once a month or so, this class will be devoted to community Kirtan, which is a lovely and joyous activity to participate in. See my website for details of this and the dates on which it happens. On those days there is no meditation class.
Who owns the houses?
In Jericho in 2011, only 21% of households were owner occupiers. Instead, many more people rented their homes: 58% from private landlords and 20% from ‘social’ landlords, mostly the City Council.
Where the community centre came from?
The centre was built at the end of the 19th century as the Church Institute for St. Barnabas.
