Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
8-week program at Namaste Yoga
Mondays, October 30-December 18, 7:15-9:00pm
Daylong, Sunday, December 3, 12:30-5:00pm
Mindfulness involves paying attention to your present experience, including your thoughts, emotions and sensory experiences. Mindfulness helps you to be more accepting of what’s happening and struggle less with your experience.
In this 8-week series, Domonick will share the neuroscience behind how mindfulness can change your brain to be more peaceful and less reactive. (Research has found that this training increases the density of gray matter in brain regions linked to learning, memory, emotion regulation, and empathy). Further, you will receive support in developing a home meditation practice.
You will leave the course with new tools to help deal with your stress more peacefully and to meet yourself and others with greater kindness and acceptance.
Mindfulness in Nature

The class is open to all levels; Domonick will provide guidance to make the exercises accessible and enjoyable for everybody. The mindfulness approach will assist you in learning to be with your experience in a way that cultivates awareness, acceptance and ease.
