Free Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Management Meditation
Yoga for Living, in Cherry Hill, will host a free Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Management class. The class will take place from 7pm-8:30pm on January 16 Mindfulness helps improve mood and energy, increase focus and mental clarity, manage difficult situations and emotions, enhance communication and improve health.
The workshop provides participants with an overview of mindfulness and the important role it can play in reducing stress and improving quality of life. Penn-trained instructor Lori Volpe will review the fundamentals of mindfulness 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 Volpe. "Mindfulness allows us to center ourselves and put the power of our happiness back in our own hands."
