Mindfulness is being in the present, not obsessing about the past or worrying about the future. The concept of mindfulness is a fundamental aspect of Buddhism and is now being studied and practiced independently all over the world. Scientific studies have shown that it reduces stress and improves health.
During this class students will experience mindfulness with simple body move-ments, breathing and posture to feel and experience the benefits of being in the present. Students will learn to develop:
A Calm mind
A Relaxed body
Being Centered and Grounded
A Positive attitude
The class will conclude with 10 minutes of breathing exercises followed by Zazen meditation.
