These conditions include: Hypertension (high blood pressure); conditions associated with heart disease, cancer or benign tumours; epilepsy including petit mal; diabetes; Menieres disease; detached retina; MS (Multiple Sclerosis); ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis); recent post-operative conditions; new students who are pregnant.

Regular attendance and commitment to the full duration of each class is important. Late arrivals to class will result in your fellow learners being disturbed during the initial concentration practice.
