Metta Meditation

If you have never experienced a Metta meditation, it is a beautiful thing.  It is a loving-kindness meditation, perfect for our February focus on all things love.  It is a calming, centering, relaxing guided meditation that helps us to focus on loving-kindness toward ourselves and others.

Our very own Shelley Herlihy recorded a Metta Mediation for us back in the earlier months of the COVID shutdown and we wanted to share it with you gain here:

Please give it a listen and enjoy.  May it bring you peace, love and a deep sense of loving-kindness in your heart.  Namaste.

Want to know more about Shelley?  Here’s her bio from the Ignite website:

Shelley Herlihy fell in love with yoga around 2005 when she realized that some of the most beautiful moments she ever experienced were on her yoga mat. Yoga has given her the ability to carry the practice into her life and enables her to fully experience life with joy and grace.

She has been teaching yoga since 2008 and completed her 200 hour Yoga teacher training with Diane Finlayson at Yama Studio in Baltimore in 2010 and her 250 hour Meditation Teacher Training in 2011. She completed her 300 hour yoga teacher certification with Yama Yoga Collective in 2017.

Shelley’s classes are based in traditional hatha yoga, and include pranayama (breathwork), meditation, and are infused with peace, lightheartedness, and joy. Shelley is dedicated to Bhakti yoga, the yoga of love and devotion, and sometimes includes chanting and music in her classes.  She encourages students to never push beyond their physical limits, and includes principles of the yoga yamas and niyamas into her practice and teaching. She is also available for private yoga and meditation sessions.

Shelley is excited to share her love of yoga, meditation, and Kirtan with the community of Ignite Yoga of York!
