Join the YMCA of Greater New York on Tuesday, January 19th at 6pm for an interactive workshop on the topic of mindfulness. We will walk through the multiple ways you can practice mindfulness and meditation and take out all the intimidation. After this workshop, it will be easy for you to come up with a mindfulness or meditation strategy to implement into your daily life.


About the Workshop

Mindful Photo Update
Mindfulness practices provide us with tools for resilience, stress relief, and inner confidence. Our bodies and minds are intricately connected, but we can get stuck in our heads, as our mind spins with anxiety or uncertainty. Bringing the body and mind together in “bodyful” work, we can reclaim our bodies and our minds from stressors and from the feelings of “blah” in being cooped up at home.
This workshop offers a balance of inspired movement and inner calm, in a non-judgmental spirit of exploration, with live connection and community. Through this workshop you will gain some simple tools to engage with your own body and mind, as empowering self-care.

There will be easy-to-follow instructions that you can revisit, as you bring the mind-body practices that feel best to you into your everyday life .
