Mindful Living brings together mindfulness meditation and yoga in an 8-week intensive training course. The mind is known to be a factor in stress and stress-related disorders, and meditation has been shown to positively affect a range of autonomic physiological processes, such as lowering blood pressure and reducing overall arousal and emotional reactivity.

Mindful Living aims to engage an individual’s inner resources to increase awareness and restore balanced health and well-being in the face of stress, pain, and illness. Mindful Living teaches you the skills and tools needed to live a more healthy and joyful life. Over time you will learn to increase your focus, concentration, and awareness of experiences both internally and externally. Participants will receive guided instruction in mindfulness meditation, gentle stretching and mindful yoga, group discussion and individual attention aimed at increasing awareness and promoting healthy living, meditation CDs and a manual for home practice.
