For instance, crossing your legs above the knees twists the sacrum in the iliac joints, which can eventually destabalise the whole spine. If for any reason sitting up straight is too strenuous for you, use a straight-backed chair. When doing some of the extreme yin practices or during times of fatigue, you can sit on a comfy chair or sofa (yeaha, something easy for a change).

Paul Cavel is the founder of Tao Arts London, editor of the monthly Tao journal, Inner Quest, life coach and senior Tao meditation arts teacher. Through Sahaja Yoga, the experience of ‘mental silence’ is now possible for every human being, effortlessly.
There is never any charge for Sahaja Yoga instruction or for receiving one’s self realisation which is the birthright of every human being.


Many of us may have accumulated unhelpful emotions like anger, fear, guilt and worry, which can hamper our enjoyment of life here in London. If you are already living in London, the only place you need to retreat to is that place of mental silence within yourself, no need to travel any further then the Sahasrara Chakra at the crown of the head. Alternating between the two has been practised by dedicated students for millennia to achieve the most in-depth training and corresponding health benefits, as well as pursue spiritual quests.
The real problem for most people is collapsing the chest, lower spine or neck, which compresses the internal organs. Since 1987, Paul has studied nei gong science, the I Ching and Lao Tzu’s Water tradition of Taoism in-depth, including qi gong, tai chi, bagua zhang, Taoist breathing, Taoist yoga, qi gong tui na energy healing and meditation. This philosophy of Sahaja Yoga is based on the fact that it is not possible to pay for what already exists inside us and merely needs to be awakened. With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we generally sit on chairs to achieve Yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously.


As more and more discover how easy it can be to meditate in London, it has a collective positive effect on everyone. As such no exercises (Asanas) are required, nor Mat or special clothing. The meditation simply happens spontaneously. The classes are easy and fun, and as long as you keep up your daily ten minutes of meditation you find you are able to achieve a deep and peaceful meditation on a regular basis.
