Free Drop-in Mindfulness Course: Mindful Movement

Description

CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.

Mindful Movement combines gentle yoga stretches and breathing practices to promote focus and relaxation.  Linking the breath with each movement is an excellent foundation for building a home meditation practice. Programs incorporating yoga poses, breathing, and meditation practices have been found to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (aka, the relaxation response). Studies have also shown that yoga can decrease inflammation, increase attention and self-regulation, as well as promote overall health and well-being.

All stretches will be done sitting in a chair. No experience or special equipment is needed – all you need for class is your breath! Participants will receive handouts to inspire their home practice.
