Sahaja Yoga Free Meditation classes have been running in Balham for over a decade now. Balham itself is part of the London Borough of Wandsworth. The settlement appears in the Doomsday Book as Belgeham. Bal refers to ’rounded enclosure’ and ham to a homestead, village or river enclosure. Nowadays, volunteers travel from across London to stage the weekly Wednesday evening Sahaja Yoga free meditation session at the Balham Library on Ramsden Road at 7.30pm.

About the meditation and classes…
The meditation is based on connecting with our inner chakras (energy centres) and balancing our subtle body. The tradition and aims of meditation are explained which in essence is to be in the present with no mental activity or thoughts about the past or the future. Short guided meditations with affirmations are used to clear and balance the subtle body to enable the silence of meditation to be experienced. During the meditation, participants sit on a chair (with shoes removed to connect with the Mother Earth) with hands on their laps.
