About the Event

 

 Drop-in Meditation Session: Mindful Movement

 taught by Robyn Long

Tuesday, October 4, 2016, 6:00 - 7:00 pm 

 

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.

 

Please note: June - August we will have two meditation sessions per month. Starting in September, each session is on the first Tuesday of the month.

 

About the Session 

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.
