About The Lotus Centre

In 1983, Meranda traveled to India and stayed for seventeen years to pursue an in depth study of meditation, Yoga and Vedant philosophy. She returned in 2000 to establish her spiritual centre. The Lotus Centre and Gerald Squires Fine Art Gallery are located at 52 Prescott Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Meranda is certified as a teacher of Advanced Studies in Yoga Science, Vedant Philosophy and the Theory and Practice of Meditation, a Soma Yoga Instructor from Kullu, HP. India, a certified Thai-yoga bodywork practitioner from Chaing Mai, Thailand, and a certified Enlightenment Master, a Mind Clearer, Couples Mind Clearer and Counselor with Lawrence Noyes Seminars, USA. Her Lotus Centre is a Yoga Alliance certified training school, training 10 to 15 yoga teachers yearly. She offers trainings in personal and professional development such as the Yoga Enlightenment Studies program and the Basics of Mind Clearing. She holds workshops and retreats from Yoga and Meditation to Enlightenment, from Yoga Diet to exploring Past lives.

SOMA YOGA (Level 1)

SOMAYOGA  ( Level 1) is about creating awareness in the living body, designed to awaken the intelligence of the body. It is a gentle and conscious form of stretching which integrates somatic exercises, hatha yoga and MacKenzie alignment techniques. The techniques are sophisticated yet safe and simple to benefit everyone with much or little body work experience.

Soma yoga develops the ability to feel and control muscle groups that previously could not be controlled due to sensory motor amnesia. It is effective in improving many types of back, hip and shoulder joints, neck or other structural problems due to bad posture and traumatic stress.  The classes are relaxing and meditative. No yoga experience needed. Loose clothing recommended. Mondays:9:30-11am, 5:30-7pm, Wednesdays 5:30-7pm

LOTUS FLOW (Level 2)  is the linking of Hatha postures in a meditative state of flow, raising vibration and meeting your edge through sustained holding of postures in sequences.
Lotus Flow gives strength, flexibility, energy, deepened breath, balance, focus and clarity of mind.
The class begins with tennis balls, an hour of flow and ends with relaxation and meditation. Mats available. Tuesdays 5:30-7pm.

Yoga classes are 1hr 30 minutes in duration. $15 drop in. $70 for 5 class pass. $130 for 10 class pass.

Lotus Retreats

Yoga, Meditation, Enlightenment Intensive retreats held in Holyrood in a natural setting.

The Benefits of Retreats

What is a retreat?

A structured exclusive setting (generally in the country) where basic food and accommodations are cared for by the facility to give the participant the time to reflect, contemplate, recuperate and rest. Often participants are expected to participate in a particular practice or technique led by the facilitator of the retreat.

What’s the value of doing a retreat?

Retreats give a person the opportunity to be transformed in their perspective of life, to emerge with renewed energy, to experience the excitement of new future possibilities resulting from the inner shift in consciousness.

What kind of retreat should I do and how often?

There are retreats in yoga, meditation, relationship work, enlightenment technique, energy healing and more. If you are new at this, try a retreat that gives you a taste of a variety of practices. When you’ve discovered the style of practice that suits you, it is suggested that you do a retreat that focuses on one technique so that you can experience the purity that is inherent in that practice. The most profound experiences to be had on retreats are when you’re ready to surrender into the technique being practiced and you give everything you’ve got, moving through all resistances, to complete the duration of the retreat. It is recommended to do at least one long retreat a year (7 days to a month). If your time and finances allow more, then do another 3 shorter retreats (minimum 3 days long) in the year.

The Benefits of Nature

How are we interconnected with Nature?

Nature supports all life. Without nature, we cannot breathe or eat.

How does connecting with nature benefit me spiritually?

Today we are forgetting the power of nature to ground us. Our minds spend hours each day living in virtual experiences such as television, computers, and other communication devices. This leads to a sense of emptiness or disconnectedness because our bodies are no longer touching and acknowledging the realness of the earth that made us. We are body beings; we need to be grounded by playing in the earth. Interacting with the Earth activates our feminine expression while computers and such devices activate our masculine side. We have lost this balance of masculine and feminine. Spending quality time in nature will unite us with our whole being quicker than any technique or practice because it is the Wholeness itself, it is Spirit itself.

Enlightenment Intensive Retreats

Participants are supported and guided through the many Stages of Enlightenment work using the enlightenment technique cutting through the barriers to Enlightenment.

Next Retreat: 3.5 days:  November 16-20, 2017  (Thursday 6pm to Monday 12noon)
The Enlightenment Intensive is a unique and powerful retreat format designed to take you on a journey through and beyond the Grand Story of My Life and into a direct experience of the You behind the scenes. Focused by a rigorous and highly structured environment in which distractions are minimized, you have the opportunity to look bravely inward, to achieve intimacy with the totality of your human self, and to directly experience who you really are.

Like brilliant actors, each of us is thoroughly and completely absorbed in playing the star role of the Grand Story of My Life. We conceive ourselves as protagonist and author of our fondest joys, our darkest despairs; our proudest accomplishments, and our most sorrowful regrets. Each day, our experience is guided by our hopes and fears; our insights as much as our neuroses. But is this really who we are? Is this our true self?

“Practice is intimacy with the full range of our humanity – the silence is finally touched, spaciousness is accessed, and we realize it’s okay. All of it.” — Ryushin 

Designed by Americans Charles and Ava Berner, the Enlightenment Intensive retreat combines the centuries-old structure of a Zen sesshin with the modern dyad technique of direct communication and deep listening. It is a sacred, protected space for you to contemplate, clear your mind, communicate what’s true for you, connect deeply with others, and be removed from the stresses of daily life. This is a chance to directly experience the truth of who you really are!

Accommodation included, contribution to vegetarian meals are appreciated. Payment plan is possible. See More about Enlightenment Intensives

Building Self Esteem

Building Self Esteem

Are you feeling disempowered? Feeling controlled by others and even outside forces?  Do you feel you have a lot of bad luck? Do you have a voice that tells you, ” You’re not good enough.” Do you sabotage yourself by thinking, ” I’ll probably fail anyway so I won’t invest too much.” Do you believe, “It’s no wonder people don’t love me, I know there’s something deeply wrong with me.” Do you feel it’s usually your fault when something goes wrong?

Lack of Self Esteem is the lack of boundaries being respected in our relationships. Rebuilding how we relate will build our Self-Esteem.

This weekend workshop will help you take back the self that was lost through childhood boundary violations. You will learn how to manage present day personal boundaries,  and also release guilt and regrets you may carry from violating the boundaries of others.   Participants have reported that they feel a tremendous weight off their shoulders and a renewed sense of self, allowing them to move forward more positively in their life.

Ever since beginning Money And Your Life program, I have experienced so much personal growth in every area of my life. I now have the tools I need to manage my finances and feel financially abundant which is empowering. It has helped me make better choices in how I spend and save my money. I find myself taking control of my finances rather than having my financial burdens control me. I can’t recommend this program enough. It has been exactly what I needed to get myself back on track.” – Rozalind MacPhail

We all know how important love is, how it brings us closer to the other, and to ourselves.   But sometimes love goes wrong.   And when it does, it leaves hurt and confusion in its wake.   This group session will help you process and move beyond the turmoil and heal your heart.   This full-day group session will bring you together with others, to help each other in this process, using techniques that include dialogue, writing, one-on-one reflection and activities to take away and continue working through.

SCHEDULE: FULL DAY   TBA, 2017   10am -6pm

Moving Through Grief

Moving Through Grief

Do you feel it’s your fault? Are you haunted? Do you feel resentment, isolated or being punished? Are you holding a secret, trying to keep control? Experiencing other losses? Are your beliefs getting dismantled? Are you having difficulty being with others? Is your life falling apart?

This weekend retreat will be held in the country, Holyrood. We will move through each stage of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance finding acceptance and nurturing.  Through understanding, expression and group support, we will explore and transform the stages of grief, cleansing your soul and uplifting your heart. With positive action steps to support the changes, you will find a renewed life.


SCHEDULE: July 7-9, 2017 Friday 6pm to Sunday 5pm

FEE:  $250 accommodation included. Please contribute a prepared vegetarian meal.
