Mindful movement refers to moving your body with awareness.  That is engaging your body in physical activity while placing your attention and focus on truly noticing and feeling what your body does throughout those movements.

an introduction to the practice of mindful movement

My class at Explore What’s Next is designed as an introduction to the practice of mindful movement.  It will focus on increasing awareness of our physical and emotional sensations as we move our bodies through the use of mindfulness meditation and gentle stretching exercises.

When and Where can you attend Mindful Movement Class

Is Mindfulness A Real Thing?

Mindfulness has empirical support for its efficacy in the management of symptoms of depression and anxiety, improved emotional-regulation, and decrease in overall stress associated with daily life.  Many individuals report an increased sense of calm, relaxation, self-awareness, and clarity.

Do I Need To Know Yoga?

Anyone with an interest in mindfulness is encouraged to attend.  No prior experience with mindfulness or yoga is required. If you enjoy gentle physical movements and are experiencing stress and discomfort, or simply would like to learn new ways to manage stress, then this class would be something to consider.

How Many Class Sessions?

Mindful Movement will consist of four class sessions that may be taken together in sequence or individually.  Note the most results will be seen with consistent attendance.
