What you will learn:
Mindfulness should no longer be considered a luxury for the workplace. It’s a must-have to keep our brains healthy, increase productivity, and protect ourselves from toxic stress. The research proves it to be an effective tool for companies to support the members of their organization to manage stress, improve focus, enhance creativity and efficiency not only in the workplace, but in their own personal lives.
This class will provide a guided mindfulness experience and leave you with the tools to establish your own personal practice as we explore evidence-based tools that promote mental and emotional wellness. With music, movement, and meditation we’ll immerse ourselves into an interactive experience to build stress resilience and inner peace, while you learn practical strategies to support living and leading mindfully.
