The pressure to perform well in college while juggling the real life demands of finances, employment and a social life is becoming increasingly difficult. We will explore how simple mindfulness practices can help you stay calmer under pressure.
This course is designed to educate you on how simple, daily practices support the health and resilience of our minds and bodies. Our aim is to explore the ways we can balance our physical, emotional and mental stress levels using practical meditation tools, mindful movement, breathing exercises and contemplative writing. Designed to kick-start the 2019 school year, this three-hour workshop provides each participant with a toolbox from which a meaningful personal practice can be built.
This workshop will include:
Introduction to our brain-body connection
mental reset practices
postures that promote focus, concentration, and ease
healthy communication tools
