Classes and Education
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)
These classes are designed to develop tools useful in calming the mind and body through meditation and basic yoga techniques. Mindfulness is moment-to-moment nonjudgmental awareness which has been shown to be effective in addressing many stress-related conditions as well as various forms of chronic pain. The first class is an orientation class that is free to the general public (it is mandatory for class participants). Classes are two hours in length and consist of training in meditation, gentle yoga and relaxation. There are periods of experiential practice, lecture and discussion. No physician referral is necessary.
