Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a state of awareness with an attitude of curiosity, openness, and acceptance. Habits formed early in life, therefore is never too early to teach children the habits of consciousness and mindfulness. On the other hand, it is never too late to initiate our journey to spiritual freedom. 

The demands of modern life are resulting in an increase in stress, tension, worry, anxiety and depression in both children and adults. Scholarly research indicates that mindfulness practice decreases stress and anxiety, increases attention, improves interpersonal relationships, strengthens compassion, and confers a host of other benefits.


  • Mindful Breathing:  The movement of our breath changes during different times of emotional and physical experiences. Since the breath is the carrier of our life force, it is important to be mindful of what happens to our breath during those experiences. This class will guide you through the process of paying attention to your breath.  We will be practice different exercises and techniques of breath that alter the state of mind and create internal peace.

  • Mindful Thinking:  Just like a computer, our brain gets overloaded with information. It is important to unplug and reboot on a regular basis to free all the clutter from our mind. This class will guide you through mindful techniques and exercises that teach you how to become aware and have more control over your thoughts.

  • Mindful Moving:  We might move through life with a "hurry up!" mentality which causes us to lose our focus, presence, and grounding. Whether we don't move enough or we are moving too much, our strive is to find the balance.  This class will offer mindful movement experiments, techniques, and exercises that will create a mind-body awareness and balance allowing the freedom of expression.  

  • Mindful Sensing: To fully experience something is to experience it with all 5 senses. This class will focus on mindful touch, taste, seeing, smelling, and hearing.
