Applied Mindfulness Series: Daily Self-Care
Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation are amazingly powerful tools, but they only have an impact when we remember to use them. Finding a consistent practice is probably the hardest part of applying these tools.
In this series, we will explore how to establish and maintain a daily commitment of self-care. The style of meditation you choose will be up to you, yoga, qigong, pranayama, sitting meditation, etc. The class will provide a structure to support you in showing up for yourself more consistently, so that you can reap the benefits of these sacred practices.
The course will include practice, as well as presentations and discussions on:
how to build habits.
how to work with excuse-making.
how to stay excited about your practice.
how to deal with obstacles.
This is appropriate for you no matter if you are a beginner or more advanced practitioner.
You are able to attend in person at my home studio in the Oakland Hills or participate from your home via Zoom.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
First, I appreciate your patience as I navigate this new medium of teaching. This transition gives us all ample opportunities to use our mindful tools to be more accepting of ourselves as we figure things out. Recognize, it may not go perfectly the first time (as I have already noticed).
Q: When should I should join the Zoom call for a particular class?
A: We will let people in approximately 5 minutes before the class start time. You can join anytime thereafter.
Q: Will I be seen in my house as I am practicing?
A: The video will spotlight the teacher’s practice. You have the option of turning off your video feed, or leaving it on so Domonick can monitor your practice.
Q: Can I ask questions during the practice? Or talk to the the teacher after class?
A: Yes, unmute yourself temporarily so that I can hear your question. I’ll be available before and after class for questions.
Q: What should I do if the audio or video connection is choppy? What should I do if I have technical issues?
A: Click “Stop Video” within the Zoom call and see if that helps. If you believe your connection is strong, try restarting the Zoom app. For other issues, drop a note into the Zoom call chat area and someone will assist you.
Q: What do I do if I get disconnected from the call during the class?
A: Return to the same Zoom call and you’ll be let back in.
Q: What is the best browser to use for virtual classes?
A: Zoom works best from the mobile or desktop apps. If necessary, you should use Chrome for the call.
Q: Will you be teaching any evening classes?
A: If you are interested in a class outside of the 9-5 schedule, please let me know. If I have adequate interest, I will add a class to accommodate those still working 9-5.
