Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Meditation

Yoga for Living, in Cherry Hill, will host two free Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes this month. The first will take place from 3 to 4:30 p.m., April 10, followed by another from 1:30 to 3 p.m., April 11. Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, MBSR helps improve mood and energy, increase focus and mental clarity, manage difficult situations and emotions, enhance communication and improve health.

Each workshop provides participants with an overview of mindfulness and the important role it can play in reducing stress and improving quality of life. Instructor Linda Townshend will review the fundamentals of MBSR and use meditation and awareness exercises to teach participants how to become familiar with this practical, proven approach that has helped thousands of people achieve greater balance, vitality and health.  

Topics include what mindfulness is and how it can reduce stress and enhance well being, basic mindfulness techniques and the application of mindfulness in day-to-day living. “We live in a fast-paced, stressful world and often feel pressured by technology, responsibilities and even our own negative self-beliefs,” says Townshend. “Mindfulness allows us to center ourselves and put the power of our happiness back in our own hands.”
