Cntre Space is a modern sanctuary of meditation and mindfulness for self-exploration and community. Experimental and contemporary practices, combined with age-old wisdom are used to help guide you into your own inner landscape, opening the way to greater awareness and a deeper sense of connection
Chi Meditation Seats
Many of us find sitting cross-legged uncomfortable due to the pressure it places on our bodies. Cntre space uses the international award winning Chi Meditation Seat in all its meditation classes to help support your practice. The Chi seat has been designed to alleviate discomfort making sitting upright easier and more enjoyable, it places the body in the correct alignment, promoting a better posture at all times.
Cntre space has chosen to use far infrared heating at the studio to warm yoga classes when required – it’s a gentle heat with no noise. Far infrared heats the body directly, the direct contact far infrared creates with the individual will result in a more intense sweat, while actually generating a lower temperature, this in turn allows more toxins to be eliminated than with other heating methods. There are so many benefits in using infrared heat, it can help to lower blood pressure, increase blood circulation, boost cellular metabolism, increase the production of both white blood cells and endorphins, as well as reduce joint pain and stiffness, stress and fatigue.
In our everyday lives we are subjected to harmful amounts of blue light due to our overexposure to phones, laptops and other devices. Overtime, this over-stimulation of blue light has been shown to suppress melatonin and interfere with our natural circadian rhythms.
Simply put, colour is just light of varying wavelengths and frequencies. Electromagnetic waves constantly surround us, and colour is part of those waves. Our cells absorb colour, and this affects us on every level, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
In some of our classes we have chosen to use specific coloured lighting to help bring on various affects such as happiness, motivation and relaxation.
open space - self practice
During opening hours cntre sapce is open for self-guided meditation practice when classes are not in session. This service is a free offering for members of cntre space or a $10 drop in rate for non- members. Our headphones and seats are also available to use during these times.
We want to encourage people to develop a consistent meditation practice even among their busy lifestyles. Part of establishing a routine is providing ourselves with a favourable environment. Our peaceful abode promotes a mood of comfort and harmony so you can “turn on, tune in, drop out” more often.
