As with all my classes, this class is a safe place to learn about meditation, breath work and mindfulness. There are no judgments and no experience is needed. Mindfulness and meditation is a personal journey and I am here to help you on that journey. Each session we would do breathing activities, gratitude practice, guided relaxations/meditations. We will begin each week with a short discussion and set an intention for our practice. Intentions are powerful statements that help us our...

I am a certified Yoga Alliance yoga teacher and Kids Yoga teacher. I am also a certified mindfulness coach and meditation guide. I love mindfulness, meditation, and yoga. I love sharing it along with all of its benefits with my students. Please make sure to have water available and comfortable clothing that will allow movement.

1 file available upon enrollmentApart from a quiet and distraction free space to meditate your learner will also need for our gratitude Jar activity each week: * a pen/pencil * small note papers or a large sheet that you can cut up. * jar, tin or box (something to store your gratitude notes).
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There are many studies to support the use of intentions for a positive life such as "Author Lynne McTaggart uses cutting-edge research conducted at Princeton, MIT, Stanford, and other universities and laboratories to reveal that intent is capable of profoundly affecting all aspects of our lives."https://hbr.org/2013/02/the-power-of-intent In regards to breathing and pranayama "Medical practitioners sometimes prescribe breathing-control exercises for people with stress disorders. Similarly, the practice of pranayama — controlling breath in order to shift one’s consciousness from an aroused or even frantic state to a more meditative one — is a core component of virtually all varieties of yoga." https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2017/03/study-discovers-how-slow-breathing-induces-tranquility.html Gratitude can have a profound effect and "Moskowitz has been studying the impact of keeping a daily gratitude journal on stress relief and health. Practicing gratitude is part of a set of skills that her research team encourages people to practice. These skills have been shown to help some people increase their positive emotions." https://newsinhealth.nih.gov/2019/03/practicing-gratitude There are countless studies about the effect of meditation and mindfulness and "Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD sifted through nearly 19,000 meditation studies, they found 47 trials that addressed those issues and met their criteria for well-designed studies. Their findings, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that mindful meditation can help ease psychological stresses like anxiety, depression, and pain. Dr. Elizabeth Hoge, a psychiatrist at the Center for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital and an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, says that mindfulness meditation makes perfect sense for treating anxiety. “People with anxiety have a problem dealing with distracting thoughts that have too much power,” she explains. “They can’t distinguish between a problem-solving thought and a nagging worry that has no benefit.” https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/mindfulness-meditation-may-ease-anxiety-mental-stress-201401086967
