Mindfulness strengthens focus and productivity
This 8-week training is designed for organizations who want to implement Mindfulness into the workday. The program is geared toward beginners and is for anyone who has always wanted to explore how meditation can profoundly change a person’s life, lower anxiety and increase focus and productivity.
During these magical 8 weeks, students will take a profound journey into the life changing world of mindfulness meditation which is an evidence-based practice that has become an accepted part of mainstream medicine. It has been proven to lower anxiety and enhance the immune system.
Students will learn how to establish a solid meditation practice and discover first hand how it positively affects the quality of life and lifestyle choices. Students report fewer sick days, having more energy and focus, and feeling more peaceful and at ease.
In addition to the classic Mindfulness practices, students learn gentle yoga practices that prepare the body to sit in meditation as well as somatic practices that release deep seated tension and anxiety from body and mind.
There are no pre-requisites for this course. Students practicing with a supportive group of people who share the goal of incorporating more mindfulness into their lives and gradually achieving a sense of inner peace and calm as well as greater ease in the body.
While this course is the first in a series of 3 trainings that will lead to a Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Teacher Certificate, it is also a stand-alone course that will prepare you to become a consistent meditator.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring layers.
Each week there will be suggested home practices. Students experience best results if they practice daily in between classes.
My experience with Maria was a gift from God. She helped me find myself and for that I am eternally grateful. Coming to meditation each week gave me a time out from the world and I could come to class and be present and feel relaxed. Maria taught me how to create a safe place for people to come and find themselves in their own way. I learned so many different ways to practice meditation and each way affected me in such a positive way. I want to continue to come to Maria’s classes and stay in touch because she inspires me to be the best teacher I can be and I want to tell the world about my experience with my great teacher, Maria.
