Mindfulness Meditation and Mindful Yoga : Rediscovering Body & Breath (Level 1 | Foundations)

Mon April 12th- Mon May 3rd

This course is designed to bring you home to your natural capacity for mindful awareness. While there is a "mindfulness muscle" to develop and a corresponding formal practice, this course aims to show that mindfulness is very ordinary, everyone can do it and it can be brought into your everyday life. As we adopt this "nothing special mindfulness", we find we have opportunities for choices that lead to a more integrated, ethical, and ultimately, a happier way of living.

The focus for the First Foundation of Mindfulness is arriving and settling into the body and breath and this will be approached through movement, restorative yoga & meditation.

Whether new to yoga or an experienced yoga practitioner, mindfulness brings a potent perspective to our experience of our body mind connection. Beginning yogis will discover that meditating on their bodies and breath is, literally, not what they think. Instead it's a visceral experience and readily accessible. 

Those who do already have yoga experience will find that mindfulness shines a new light on their relationship with their body and breath and offers a fresh perspective. All will benefit from the stress-relief and insights that arise from formal mindfulness meditation and applying these insights to their everyday lives.

Through the course, modifications of yoga poses and movements as well as alternative meditation postures will be offered so that each person can meet themselves where they are and feel empowered to explore their own authentic practice

  • Week 1: Rediscovering the body
  • Week 2: Re-membering movement
