Mindfulness is our ability to pay attention to the present moment with curiosity and without judgment on purpose. Mindfulness is a part of who you are. Unfortunately, the demands of life limit our capacity to build the necessary skills to experience calm, ease and a proper balance to our lives. Training in mindfulness that enhances self-care and social-emotional growth helps to develop a personal tool kit for attentional stability and focus, awareness, and better emotional well-being.
Learning a new skill requires an intention, repetition and patience. It can be challenging for anything newly learned to stick and become habits without a proper foundation of practice. With my support as a certified instructor and experienced guide, I teach you the baseline principles, keep you accountable, and offer supportive guidance when difficulties arise. Mindful living will become a part of your integrated experience of simply being alive.
Yoga is a practice of personal discovery that uses the body-mind relationship to bring more awareness, coping skills, and compassion to ourselves and daily lives. The blend of physical and mental practices leads to internal peace, self-awareness, and a higher consciousness. Yoga is an accessible and sustainable method of movement as a form of self-care.
I offer opportunities to experience a basic understanding of postures that will allow you to enhance a greater mind-body connection, release tension caused by stress, and develop skills of present purposeful attention. If life is out of balance, yoga is one of the many doorways to align your health with a more purposeful quality of life.
