Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction (MBSR)
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.
A growing body of scientific research on mindfulness has demonstrated a wide range of benefits, including:
Psychological – reduces stress, anxiety and depression.
Mental – increases your ability to focus and improves your memory.
Physical – helps you eat and sleep better, boosts your body’s immune system and helps you deal with physical pain.
Social – enhances relationships, helping you communicate better and feel more accepting of yourself and others, and feel more optimistic about your relationships.
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.
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world …
as in being able to remake ourselves.”

End of an Era:
Closing Down My Group Yoga Classes.
It’s with a mix of excitement and sadness that I announce the end of my group yoga classes.
The pandemic has led to change for many of us, whether it’s by moving, switching jobs or taking on a new hobby. This year, I decided to retool my skills and shift gears for the last twist in my professional lifespan.
I was recently accepted into a doctoral program in clinical psychology, which starts at the end of August. Given the full-time class load, plus a 20-hour/week practicum, I won’t be able to maintain my public group classes.
I plan to continue to offer private instruction for now. So, if you still would like to study with me, email me to set up a private or small group session. I also have created a Yoga Library from which you can stream pre-recorded classes.
Thank you for your of support of my 17-year teaching practice. It has been an enlightening journey for me and an honor and pleasure to work with you.
