New center now open in Hastings, MN: Just Sit Sala

Hastings Minnesota has a new and unique amenity in town: the “Just Sit Sala.” It is located at 1303 South Frontage Road, Suite 261 and is a place of Meditation and Contemplation. The Sala is a place where one can come for rejuvenation; a place to rest, relax, recuperate and learn if so desired. 

Some of the available experiences are Meditation, Contemplation, Tai Chi, Karuna Yoga, and Somatic Assessment and Remediation. Classes and courses in Meditation and Contemplation will be offered. Practice Groups for Tai Chi and Karuna Yoga will be formed. Group Meditation Sessions will happen. Small travel groups to interesting locales are being considered. 

What will be offered and available is really fluid and organic. Ideally we will use the energy of the clients and community to inspire the choice of experience. Initially the consistent offerings will be small intimate group instruction in Meditation, Contemplation, and the Relaxation Response. Somatic Assessment and Remediation is also available by appointment.

Daily Hours are 8:00 am to 11:30 am and 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm.  Evenings, weekends, and “lunch time” hours can be made by special appointment. Drop-in use is encouraged. Courtesy to and consideration of others using the space is appreciated.

Our website is under construction but we can be found on Facebook at Just Sit Sala. Courses, Classes, and Practice Groups are in the planning stage and will be available in the near future.

Please stop in and experience this new amenity to Hastings. Come visit and chat. No experience is necessary nor is there any expectation of proficiency. Come as you are. We gladly and joyfully honor each being in their natural perfection.

All Meditation Disciplines and levels of experience are welcome. Our Goal is to create a nonjudgmental and inclusive community.
