Mindfulness for Adults
Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. This kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, clarity, and acceptance of present-moment reality. It wakes us up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments. If we are not fully present for many of those moments, we may not only miss what is most valuable in our lives but also fail to realize the richness and the depth of our possibilities for growth, and transformation. The principles of Mindfulness in this class are taught through light yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation, and breathing exercises. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a yoga mat, and get ready for a wonderful treat!
