Meditate Like A Yogi

Rise above the ups and downs of life. Float Away Emotional Wellness spa in Riverhead practices mantra meditation techniques coupled with pranayam and will be holding classes every Wednesday at 6 PM.

They are held inside the salt lounge for salt air health benefits, a perfect pairing to the breathwork portion of class. Suitable for those new to meditation, especially for those who can’t “quiet the mind,” as this is a chanting form of meditation.
